Knicks Draft Pick Andy Rautins Likely Done For Worlds With Knee Injury

Mike Ganter of the Toronto Sund reports that New York Knick 2010 second-round draft pick Andy Rautins -- who was signed by the team earlier this summer -- will likely miss the rest of the 2010 World Championships due to a knee injury. Rautins is a member of Team Canada and his father, Leo Rautins, is the team's head coach.

It's not carved in stone, but the likelihood is Andy Rautins has played his final basketball game at the 2010 world championship.

A knee injury that got aggravated Sunday in a loss to Lithuania kept Rautins in street clothes for Tuesday's game with France. Head coach and Andy's father, Leo Rautins said Tuesday night his son was probably done for the duration.

"The pain is too restrictive and he's got a high threshold," the senior Rautins said. "He has played through a lot of (crap)." 

It is unclear how long Rautins is expected to be limited by the injury.
