Better now than into the season. Hopefully hell be ready by opening night. An injury like this midseason would have been killer

This. Sucks that it happened but if there is a good time for an injury to occur its now

Why do I get the feeling he will get arrested or get more bad press while recovering?

Not trying to start a debate about word choice because I know there's training camp and all that, but isn't it misleading to say he'll miss 3-4 months? He'll miss the first 2 weeks of the season, if any time at all.

Hate when a player is injured. Take your time to heal TAKE YOUR TIME and even longer if you want!

Great job by the Knicks PR department to keep this secret till MWP's signing so fans don't freak out. Hope it's not a lingering issue. Dolan's known for hiding these things.

Did he decide to perform the surgery after he signed the contract :laugh:

No duh.

Knicks knew. But the other teams (unless they did an exam on him during signing).

Knicks signed him knowing he'd need the surgery.
The Knicks (and JR) didn't leak it so if things didn't work out with JR, he'd still have a shot with other teams.

Simple as that.

Its an injury he suffered and kept on playing through it. By playing through it, he worsened it.

The best thing would have been to have the surgery in June, but since he didn't know if the Knicks would re-sign him or if another team would sign him, he needed to do it now.

he don't need training camp, just give him a bag of weed and he'll be good for the start of the season. Nothing to see here, move on.

I doubt he misses any time in the regular season over this....

Your response to me didn't even make sense. Look in the mirror.
