An MRI has revealed that Eddy Curry has a vertical cartilage tear in his right knee. Surgery is required to repair the damage and by all accounts Curry will more than likely opt for the season-ending procedure sometime later this week.
In Wednesday's game against the Cavs, Morris had 7 points and 7 rebounds in only 12 minutes showing some potential as a late season fantasy contributor. Unfortunately, Isiah has only played him a total of 9 minutes over the past two games. Way to build up the young man's confidence.
Despite Saturday's benching of Morris, Isiah appears committed to playing both youngsters a good amount over the team's final 19 games. When asked about playing Morris and Chandler after the game, Isiah was quoted in the New York Post as saying "It's time. It really is that simple. It's time."
I am certainly not ready to reccomend either as a fantasy option yet. However, it is worth mentioning that these two youngsters are in a position to see ample playing time late in the season and could be nice stopgap options come the fantasy basketball playoffs.
