Agent Says Eddy Curry Will Be Back

Eddy Curry’s agent said Wednesday night he is confident the Knicks center will play again this year.

Curry has been sidelined since making a brief cameo in his season debut last Thursday in Dallas. After missing the first 35games of the season with a right knee injury, Curry injured his left knee after going through a rigorous practice on Friday. But that wasn’t the low point of Curry’s week. On Monday, Curry’s former driver filed a lawsuit seeking unspecified damages, in addition to a claim of $93,00 in unpaid wages.

The driver, David Kuchinsky, has accused Curry of making sexual advances toward him and pointing a gun at him. Curry has not spoken to reporters since late Monday when he denied the charges.
