Knicks rookie RJ Barrett, sidelined with a sprained right ankle, has transitioned from crutches to a walking boot, the team announced on Saturday (Twitter link). Barrett is set to be reevaluated in one week.
Barrett, 19, sprained his ankle last Thursday and was set for a reevaluation one week after sustaining the injury. In an otherwise abysmal 12-34 season, the Duke product has been a bright spot for the Knicks.
In 41 games this season, Barrett is averaging 14.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG, and 2.5 APG. He has struggled to shoot at a consistent clip, making 39.3% of his attempts from the field at the time of the injury.
