There will be no Jorts for the next month and a half.

The New York Daily News and report that New York Knicks rookie Josh Harrellson -- affectionately known as "Jorts" -- will miss the next six weeks after fracturing his right wrist, an injury that will require surgery.

Harrellson, 22, is a 6-foot-10 forward/center out of the University of Kentucky. A second round pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the New Orleans Hornets, Harrellson is averaging 5.5 points and 4.2 rebounds in 18.6 minutes per game for New York.

His absence will leave Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni will one more hole to plug on a roster clearly lacking depth. Behind starters Tyson Chandler and Amar'e Stoudemire, the only available big men are Jared Jeffries, Renaldo Balkman and the seldom used Jerome Jordan.

The Knicks dropped to 6-10 on the season after losing to the Denver Nuggets in overtime, 119-114, at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

all these people getting hurt must be a result of the lockout. most of them gettinghurtis the old guys.the team that will win will not be the one with the most talenet overall. it will be the ones with the most talent on the floor. i wonder if part of it is the coaches fault. they dont have enough sense to play more guys so they canfield a team for the playoffs
