SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) -New York Knicks forward Jared Jeffries left an intrasquad scrimmage Thursday because of an apparent strain to his left shin.
The 6-foot-11 seventh-year pro pulled up in the backcourt 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.
``I'm going to get it checked out at the hotel by the doctors,'' Jeffries said. ``I'm going to put some ice on it, just kind of wait, just see what happens. It's painful right now more than anything.''
Jeffries said he jumped and when he landed it felt his muscle tighten up, describing it as ``more than a cramp.''
Meanwhile, center Eddy Curry didn't practice again he hasn't since the team arrived at camp and D'Antoni didn't know when he'd be available.
``I think he's just sick. There'd be no other reason because it's not like you want to hang out at the hotel all day,'' D'Antoni said, adding that it's unlikely Curry will practice before the team leaves town Saturday.
