NEW YORK (AP) -Stephon Marbury will miss at least two more games and could require surgery on his left ankle.
Marbury went after practice Monday to see specialist Dr. William Hamilton, who found inflammation around a chronically fractured bone spur. Hamilton recommended Marbury wear a walking boot for three days before being evaluated with an MRI exam.
Marbury will miss games for the Knicks against Washington on Tuesday and at New Jersey on Wednesday, but told reporters at practice he would have surgery if it was recommended.
``If the doctor says I have bone spurs in my ankle and he says I need surgery, I'm going to get it,'' Marbury said. ``I'm going to get it taken care of. I'm not going to wait or hesitate because that's my career.''
