WOW! WHAT! Does NY have the worst luck in history? I am not saying that Jeremy was the second coming of Karl Malone, but I thought he could have evolved as a player in this system. But now he will be out for 8-10 weeks? The Knicks always seem to have the injury bug, as the list grows and grows this offseason.
Let’s see how this affects another signing. NY, already looking for frontcourt help, should step up their pursuit for a PF/C to reduce the blow of this news. Not to be overly dramatic, but NY needs to stay healthy this year, and this is the 2nd player to go down in the last few months, not a good sign. Finding another “big” was in the works as it was, but now Glen Grunwald better get on that phone and get to work quickly.
