After sustaining a gun-shot wound to his right knee early Wednesday in a targeted robbery, New York Knicks forward Cleanthony Early underwent MRI and X-ray exams that revealed no structural damage or surgery required, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Early is expected to have a cleanup of his knee and expects a full recovery, league sources said. The bullet exited Early’s leg and is not lodged in it, sources said.
Early is expected to need two to three months to recover, league sources said, with his week-to-week timetable potentially changing, depending on his rehabilitation.
