Prigioni fractures toe, out two weeks

Pablo Prigioni has a hairline fracture of his right great toe, the Knicks announced.

He is expected to be out at least two weeks.

Harris Decker

With Raymond Felton already sidelined, this is a huge injury for the Knicks. Prigioni spent a large amount of time covering John Wall early in Monday nights game and seemed to be getting tired around the time of his injury. This injury does one of three things:

  1. Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith or Tim Hardaway Jr. will have to play extensive minutes at the point.
  2. The Knicks will be forced to make a trade for a point guard.
  3. A guy like Toure’ Murry will have to get more minutes as the backup to Beno Udrih.

In any of these cases, it’s not great news for the Knicks who finally found some point guard continuity against the Wizards. Beno Udrih will be able to hold the fort until Felton returns but the depth at this position has suddenly disappeared in a matter of days.

TIME TO PLAY MURRY!!!! Beno is garbage, and atleast Murry is athletic enough to play some defense. I honestly hate Beno right now. Murry is 6'5", in great shape from Summer League and Pre-season play and is way quicker than Beno. How can Woodson not see this??

Knicks need a point guard that won't shoot much and that can drive and dish. Beno shoots the ball way too much, and is too slow to drive to the hoop. Beno also tries miraculous lay-ups where you know he is going to fail miserably at. Tell Murry to bring up the ball and give him some opportunities to run the Point and tell him not to shoot. Woodson has been an idiot all season. He doesn't know how to "play the hot hand", and is too loyal to players that are playing like garbage

Yes, let's play beno the entire second half (barring the 1st 2 minutes), while sticking him on their sg who was absolutely on fire. Oh yeah, let's not play hardaway for most of the 4th when he was killing it. I hate to admit it but it's official, we need to make a change. Bring in Lowry, and darius morris or some other filler and hope Jeremy Tyler and Tyson can help asap.

There is no turning back from a demoralizing loss like this. When you play as good as your going to play and let the game slip through your fingers in the stupidest manner because you have zero faith in your teammates and coach, it's over...

When will this coach get canned? This is getting comical

"as a backup to Beno Udrih."  


I like the guy well enough, but I'd have been just fine if we had gotten through this entire season without ever seeing those words.

Have we finally hit rock bottom? probably not...was too busy being entertained by a show called "Homeland" (since I am no longer entertained by watching every Knicks game). Finally tuned in to watch the last play of this game...not even shocked anymore

Hmmmm, how many more lows do we have to hit before this idiot owner fires this idiot coach and trades these idiot players and show some actual respect to these idiot fans who pay to watch this debacle?

@lindro88 No no, according to Biggie and the other "smartest fans in basketball" who know more than us, Woody is not the problem.
