Jeffries suffers broken wrist, might miss start of season
Jeffries was hurt Friday night against New Jersey in his Knicks debut and didn't play in Saturday night's preseason game at Philadelphia. He had an MRI exam Sunday, which revealed a non-displaced fractured left wrist.
Coach Isiah Thomas said Monday during a conference call that Jeffries could be sidelined three to six weeks, though the Knicks said they would have a better idea Tuesday.
Jeffries signed with the Knicks over the summer after spending his first four seasons with the Washington Wizards.
