Knicks forward Cleanthony Early was shot during a robbery early this morning, which raised all kinds of questions about his life going forward.

With his reported release from the hospital, we can turn to his on-court prospects.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

The hospital previously announced Early had been released, so there’s at least a little confusion here. Perhaps, he changed medical facilities.

But his exact location matters only so much.

The biggest news is the good news that Early has no structural damage nor need for surgery. Hopefully, he’ll be playing again soon.
