Knicks' Marbury has ankle surgery, out indefinitely
NEW YORK -- Knicks point guard Stephon Marbury had surgery Tuesday to remove bone spurs from his left ankle and is out indefinitely.
Marbury said last week he would try to return this season. He had the same surgery when he played in Phoenix and was sidelined for most of the offseason.
The procedure was performed by Dr. William Hamilton. The Knicks -- who have made it clear the surgery was Marbury's choice -- said it was successful.
Marbury has missed 17 games, mostly after his father died in December, and is averaging a career-low 13.9 points.
