Jeremy Tyler has foot surgery, out 8-10 weeksPosted by Inside Hoops
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.
