The team announced Sunday that forward Bill Walker will miss 4-6 weeks after he undergoes a surgical procedure known as “debridement” on his left elbow on Monday.
Debridement is a term used to describe the removal of lacerated, devitalized, or contaminated tissue.
Walker has started eight games for the Knicks, scoring a season-high 21 points when he knocked down seven 3-pointers in a loss at Miami on Jan. 27. He has averaged 6.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in spot duty at the wing positions.
The Knicks are in Boston this afternoon for a nationally televised game against the Celtics, who traded Walker to New York three years ago in the Nate Robinson deal.
