Ronnie Brewer out six weeks after knee surgery

Knicks veteran guard Ronnie Brewer began rehab Friday after undergoing surgery to repair a meniscal injury to his knee, according to his Twitter account.

“If y’all haven’t already heard I had successful meniscus surgery,” he wrote on his verified Twitter account @RonnieBrewerJr. “Started rehab this morning. Minor setback for a major comeback.”

The Knicks said Brewer tore the meniscus in his left knee in the last two weeks and is expected to miss six weeks.
