As if the Knicks losing again, at home, to the Denver Nuggets with half their lineup from the past few years wasn’t depressing enough, the Knicks suffered another loss Saturday night. The Knicks announced after the game that backup big man Josh Harrellson suffered a broken wrist on Saturday night and will miss six weeks after surgery, which has not yet been scheduled.
“Jorts,” as he has come to be known to Knicks fans, was having a surprisingly productive season as a backup defender for the Knicks behind Tyson Chandler in front of Renaldo Balkman. The Knicks are in need of bigs and Harrellson provided them with a stretch big who could hit from range and attack the glass, as well as give the fouls that are needed. Without Harrellson, expect more Renaldo Balkman, Jared Jeffries, and Jerome Jordan. This also means more minutes for Tyson Chandler, which means more of a beating for a player that has dealt with injury issues in the past.
So basically, what we’re saying is that the hits just keep on coming for the Knicks. Best of luck for Harrellson in his recovery and hopefully he can get back on the floor quickly for the Knicks after recovery.
