Former Wichita State star Cleanthony Early will miss a month or more after Tuesday’s surgery on his right knee, according to the New York Post and several other outlets.

Early played in seven games for the New York Knicks this season, averaging 2.7 points.

“I hate to see him go through this setback,” Knicks coach Derek Fisher told reporters. “He’ll bounce back fine. We’ll miss him, but he’ll be good.”
