NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Knicks say guard Pablo Prigioni sustained a “hairline fracture of the great right toe” in Monday night’s loss to the Washington Wizards.
He’s expected to miss at least two weeks. Surgery is not required.
Prigioni exited with 9:49 left in the third quarter and the Knicks trailing 57-42. He was replaced by Beno Udrih.
Prigioni was starting in place of Raymond Felton, who remains sidelined with a strained left hamstring.
The injury leaves New York with only two healthy point guards on its roster: Beno Udrih and rookie Toure’ Murry. The Knicks were linked to trade talks last week for Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry.
