NEW YORK (AP) -Knicks center Eddy Curry has torn cartilage in his right knee and will rest for a few days before a decision on surgery is made.
Curry missed New York's loss to Portland on Saturday after hurting the knee during the first half of a loss to Detroit the previous night. An MRI exam Sunday revealed a small vertical tear, so Curry will need surgery at some point.
However, unlike a horizontal tear, there is no risk of further injury if Curry continues to play, so he can put off the operation if his knee responds to treatment over the next couple of days.
Curry won't play Monday in Dallas and is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game at Miami. He will be re-evaluated sometime in the next few days.
The 6-foot-11 Curry was enjoying a strong stretch during a disappointing season, averaging 20.7 points in his last three games. He is scoring 13.2 per game for the season.
Also, leading scorer Jamal Crawford is questionable for Monday's game after sitting out Saturday with a bruised right hand. Zach Randolph, who has missed the last five games with a bruised right foot and had returned to Indiana for personal reasons, was expected to rejoin the team and could play against the Mavericks.
