With just over a dozen games to go before the end of the season and with the New York Knicks three games behind in the race for the final play-in spot, they'll have to finish the run without a key player.
According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Knicks forward Cam Reddish will miss the rest of the season. He is dealing with right shoulder separation and missed Wednesday's game against the Dallas Mavericks.
Reddish is one week removed from his best game as a Knick so far. He had 17 points off the bench in a 116-93 win over the Los Angeles Clippers this past Sunday.
Fortunately, it doesn't appear to be an injury that will shelve him for too long. The recovery timeline will reportedly be the six-week range. He should be good to go ahead of next season.
At 28-38, the Knicks are dead last in the Atlantic Division and will probably need to play out of their minds in the final few weeks of the season.
Up next is a road game against the Memphis Grizzlies followed by a return trip to NYC for a game against the Nets in Brooklyn. Then they get a week at home with the Trail Blazers, Hawks, Wizards and Jazz all coming to The Garden.
The Knicks are on a roll right now with a three-game winning streak. We'll see if they can keep up the momentum with Reddish out for the rest of the year.
Who will replace Reddish on the Knicks bench?
