NEW YORK (AP) -Eddy Curry doesn't need surgery on his sore right shoulder, and the New York Knicks center will be re-evaluated in one week.
Team orthopedist Dr. Answorth Allen agreed Tuesday with an original diagnosis of a labral tear with no rotator cuff damage. Curry will have treatment and rehab the injury.
Curry was hurt late in the Knicks' training camp in Charleston, S.C., and sat out their victory over Philadelphia on Monday night in their exhibition opener. He will also miss Thursday's game against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
The 6-foot-11 center averaged 19.5 points and 7.0 rebounds last season.
New York opens its season on Nov. 2 at Cleveland.
