Stephon Marbury Out for the Season

After undergoing left ankle surgery that turned out to be more complicated that initially thought, New York Knicks point guard Stephon Marbury will miss the rest of the season, according to a Saturday report in the New York Post.

The surgery to remove bone spurs from Marbury’s ankle was expected to be a 30-minute procedure. But it turned out to much more complicated and took Dr. William Hamilton two hours to perform the operation.
Marbury had originally said he would try to return this season. He had the same surgery when he played for the Phoenix Suns. The Knicks, who have made it clear that the surgery was Marbury’s choice, said it was successful. [Click here for more from the Indy Star.]
