Knicks New Acquisition Anthony Randolph Out At Least A Week With Ankle Injury

The New York Knicks opened their season tonight without one of their most promising prospects as power forward Anthony Randolph will miss at least a week due to an ankle injury he sustained in practice.

ESPN’s Chris Broussard reports that Randolph was walking with the aid of crutches Wednesday morning and said the ankle he sprained Tuesday should only keep him sidelined for a week at most. However, a statement issued later in the day by the team said Randolph was re-evaluated in the afternoon and is expected to miss about two weeks.

For what it’s worth, Randolph says he’s feeling “better.”

“I’m feeling much better today than I did yesterday,” said Randolph, who missed the final 47 games of last season with torn ligaments in his left ankle — the same one he re-injured Tuesday. “It wasn’t as bad as it could have been. The other injury is healed up fine. It’s healthy.”

Randolph isn’t an integral part of the Knicks as the backup power forward, but has the potential to be a big part of the team if he’s able to keep progressing.
