Courtney Lee Cleared for Non-Contact Court Practice

NBA: Orlando Magic at New York Knicks

Courtney Lee has made significant recovery from neck spasms and will begin non-contact court drills.

Lee was re-evaluated by the team physician, who determined the Knicks forward is “progressing well” from the neck problems that have kept him sidelined all season.

At press time, Lee’s workouts will be limited to running drills on the court.


With Lee’s name being floated in trade talks, the Knicks are hoping he gets healthy sooner rather than later. If he comes back and maintains his usual numbers, contending teams will be intrigued by his solid defense and perimeter shooting (38% career shooter from three). And with next year’s free-agent class, the Knicks would be ecstatic to have the additional $12.75 million from Lee’s salary.
