Now with the Knicks, Jared Jeffries could miss significant time, due to a broken wrist.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Jared Jeffries, expected to be the Knicks' starting small forward, could miss the beginning of the regular season because of a broken left wrist.
Jeffries, a former Indiana University star and Indiana's 2000 Mr. Basketball from Bloomington North, was hurt Friday night against New Jersey in his Knicks debut and didn't play Saturday night at Philadelphia. He had an MRI exam Sunday, which revealed a non-displaced fractured left wrist.
Coach Isiah Thomas said Monday during a conference call that Jeffries could be sidelined three to six weeks, though the Knicks said they would have a better idea Tuesday.
Jeffries signed with the Knicks over the summer after spending his first four seasons with the Washington Wizards.
