Cleanthony Early to have knee surgery

Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

Knicks rookie Cleanthony Early will have surgery to remove a loose fragment in his right knee. It is unclear how early soon he will return, but the forward out of Wichita State will miss at least a month, after which he will be re-evaluated. Cleanthony has played sparingly out of the gate, so his absence will clear a few— but not enough— minutes for Andrea Bargnani, who is expected to return soon.
