 SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) -New York Knicks forward Jared Jeffries fractured his left fibula at practice Thursday and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks.
The 6-foot-11 seventh-year pro pulled up in the backcourt during a scrimmage and was immediately waved off the court by coach Mike D'Antoni. Jeffries' lower leg was wrapped in an ice pack as he sat out the rest of practice until some light shooting at the end.
Jeffries said he jumped and when he landed felt his muscle tighten up, describing it as ``more than a cramp.''
Jeffries contributed little during his first two seasons in New York, but was expected to have a larger role under D'Antoni because of his ability to play all three positions in the frontcourt.
Meanwhile, center Eddy Curry didn't practice again while recovering from a bacterial infection. He hasn't since the team arrived at camp and D'Antoni didn't know when he'd be available.
out at the hotel all day,'' D'Antoni said, adding that it's unlikely Curry will practice before the team leaves town Saturday.
