Kevin Knox

New York Knicks rookie Kevin Knox will be sidelined for two-to-four weeks with a sprained ankle sustained against the Boston Celtics.

The rook will miss significant time. That’s the bad news. The good news is that he won’t be missing anything more than significant time.

It looked scary while watching live.

When New York Knicks rook Kevin Knox fell to the floor in a hurry, during his team’s 103-101 loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday night, fans feared the worst. Nightmares of Kristaps Porzingis danced in their heads while all collectively gasped a sigh of air.

It turns out Knox will only miss two-to-four weeks with a sprained ankle, via Shams Charania of The Athletic.

During the game, we learned the instant X-rays taken came back negative. We simply didn’t know how severe a sprain it was.

Knox, 19, is averaging 9.3 points and two rebounds while shooting .355 from the floor in 18.7 total minutes per game thus far in three professional games. Unlike the nasty knee injury sustained by KP a year ago has permanently stained the minds of so many New York hoops fans.

Though it’s rough, the Knickerbockers should feel extraordinarily fortunate that he’ll miss just two weeks to a month of NBA action.

What’s getting the Knicks fan through the moment is just how promising everything looks right now, especially after such a great showing against the mighty Celtics.

Riding the greatest 1-2 start to an NBA season in history, the New York Knicks will get right back in the mix when they take on the Bucks in Milwaukee on Monday night.
