Knicks rookie Knox leaves game with apparent ankle injury

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Knicks rookie Kevin Knox left New York's game against Boston after an apparent left ankle injury in the first quarter.

Knox was driving for a layup on a fast break Saturday when his ankle appeared to roll badly as he was fouled by Terry Rozier III. Knox stayed on the court briefly, appearing in pain, then was carried off by a pair of teammates.

Because Knox wasn't able to shoot the free throws, he was, by rule, forced to miss the remainder of the game.

The No. 9 pick in the draft was coming off a strong performance Friday in a loss at Brooklyn, scoring 17 points on 7-for-14 shooting.
