Eddy Curry is likely to have season-ending knee surgery after an MRI revealed a vertical cartilage tear in his right knee.
The plan is for Curry to take a few days and see if the swelling goes down, and then make a decision on whether to play on or have surgery. But with nothing left to play for, it would make sense for Curry to have the procedure now. He’ll need 4-6 weeks to recover, so he should be fine going into next season. With Curry out, David Lee should see more stable playing time the rest of the way, while Randolph Morris will also get a long look from the Knicks. Officially, Curry has been ruled out for Monday’s game, and is questionable for Wednesday in Miami.
