Knicks’ Early Returns to First NBA Action Since Being Shot


Knicks forward Cleanthony Early returned to an NBA floor Sunday for the first time since he was shot in the knee in late December.

Early was activated prior to the Knicks’ game against the Sacramento Kings in part because of New York’s injury issues. The 24-year-old played the final 19 seconds of the first half of the Knicks’ 88-80 loss to Sacramento. “It felt real good, especially after the incident,” Early said of his return. “Just trying to get back out there and do what I do.”
