Josh Harrellson broke his right wrist during a game Saturday night with Denver.
Harrellson suffered the injury when he fell to the ground at the end of the first overtime in the Knicks' 119-114 double-overtime loss to the Nuggets. Harrellson had 2 points and 6 rebounds in 17 minutes.
The rookie from Kentucky will be out six weeks after the surgery which isn't scheduled. Josh, who has been a very valuable part of New York's second unit didn't talk with reporters after the game.
After being a surprise to many just by making the team, the 6-foot-10 inch 275 pounder has averaged 5 points and 4 rebounds in 18 minutes a game. That includes hitting 36% of his shots from downtown.
