Knocks News - Balkman out at least four weeks

Bad news for the Knicks - Renaldo Balkman will be out at least four weeks and will probably miss the Knicks’ season opener because of a stress reaction and cartilage damage in his right ankle, the team announced yesterday. Balkman, a forward, will be wearing a walking boot when the team opens training camp Tuesday morning in Charleston, S.C.

Doctors will re-evaluate Balkman in four weeks, a timeline that practically guarantees he will miss all seven preseason games.
