The Knicks season hasn’t even begun and already their knees are giving them trouble. This time, newly-resigned JR Smith is the culprit as the Knicks now report that he’s has had patellar tendon surgery and an arthroscopy for a tear in the lateral meniscus of his left knee (source).
Since I’m sure there are sure to be more poorly-timed surgeries to come through the NBA news-cycle soon, I’m holding out hope that perhaps Metta World Peace will take advantage of his hometown’s fine brain surgeons and finally get something looked at.
OK, not just looked at–like actually fixed.
Metta in New York could have some pretty bad consequences if he gets the 3-point “green light” from Mike Woodson.
