New York Knicks rookie Kevin Knox will be out of commission for at least a week because of a sprained left ankle.
Knox, the ninth overall selection in the draft in June out of Kentucky, suffered the injury in the first quarter against the Boston Celtics on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden and an MRI on Sunday confirmed the sprain, according to the team.
The former University of Kentucky star will not travel with the Knicks on their two-game road trip to Milwaukee and Miami this week and will be re-evaluated in seven days, the team said, meaning he will miss at least three games, including Friday night when New York returns home to face two-time defending NBA champion Golden State at The Garden.
The 19-year-old was going to the bucket on a drive Saturday night when he rolled his left ankle while being fouled by Boston’s Terry Rozier.
Knox scored 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting in New York’s 107-105 road loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.
