Knicks' Star Forward Julius Randle Set for Season-Ending Surgery

After two months of rehabilitation in an attempt to return to the Knicks, it has been revealed that Julius Randle, who hasn't played since late January, will undergo season-ending right shoulder surgery after he dislocated it.

Randle has made a big name for himself in the Big Apple. He was selected for his third All-Star game this season. Julius Randle has averaged 22.6 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 4.7 assists since he signed with the Knicks in free agency back in 2019.

This is a significant loss for the Knicks, who also await the return of recently acquired OG Anunoby from the Toronto Raptors. Anunoby suffered an elbow injury in January. The Knicks were 12-2 with these two men in the lineup.

The Knicks are currently 44-31 and clinging to the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. Their playoff hopes to clinch are still alive, but the loss of their star big man for the rest of the season raises concerns for many Knicks fans. The good long-term news for Randle is that he should be good for the start of next season, but this certainly changes things moving forward.
