Jeremy Tyler
Jeremy Tyler has foot surgery, out 8-10 weeks
Still trying to prove his place in the NBA

Knicks power forward Jeremy Tyler underwent surgery to repair the fifth metatarsal on his right foot Thursday and is expected to be out 8-10 weeks, according to the Knicks.

Tyler signed a contract with the Knicks that is not fully guaranteed. This is significant because New York can waive Tyler without paying him a full season’s salary. It is unclear if the Knicks have guaranteed a portion of Tyler’s contract. If so, they would have to pay him that portion if they were to release him.

Tyler, 6-foot-10, had a strong showing with the team in summer league and made an impression on the Knicks’ coaches.
