Knicks point guard Baron Davis received the worst possible news on Monday when an MRI revealed that he tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee in the second half of the Knicks’ Game 4 victory.

The injuries, which include a partial tear of the patella tendon, are career-threatening, and will keep the 33-year-old Davis sidelined for at least 12 months.

“The one thing he did say is, ‘Man, hey, I tried to give you all I could,’ and I have a great deal of respect for players that work for me and work for the organization and try to do the best they can to help us win ballgames,” Mike Woodson said.
