Metta World Peace did not play in the Knicks’ game against Memphis on Saturday. He is currently dealing with a left knee injury. Don’t be forgotten that World Peace’s left knee is a bit of a problem for both him and the Knicks.

From ESPN,

He underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in the same knee in late March while with the Los Angeles Lakers. He was originally expected to miss at least six weeks but returned to the court just 12 days later.

More recently, World Peace missed two games due to an issue with his left knee and revealed he had fluid drained from his left knee twice in a two-week period.

World Peace’s status for the team’s game on Sunday against the Orlando Magic.

“I just have to take some time. We’ll see how long,” he said.

“When you feel good, you get back,” he said.

The New York Knicks are currently 8-17 on the season, and they sit in 4th place in the Atlantic Division.
