Knicks rookie Kevin Knox expected to miss 2-4 weeks with ankle injury
New York Knicks rookie point guard Kevin Knox looked impressive in his first two games with the team, but it could be as long as a month before fans get to see him play again.
Knox left the Knicks’ game against the Boston Celtics on Saturday with an ankle injury, and Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that he is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after being diagnosed with a sprain.

Knox, the No. 9 overall pick in this year’s draft, scored 10 points in New York’s season opener and 17 points in 28 minutes against the Brooklyn Nets in their second game of the season. He’s clearly going to play a big role this year even with the addition of Tim Hardaway Jr., so the Knicks are hoping the former Kentucky star can return as quickly as possible.
