Knicks' RJ Barrett in boot, out at least another week

New York Knicks shooting guard RJ Barrett will miss at least one more week as he continues to recover from a sprained right ankle.

The team said Saturday that Barrett has transitioned from crutches to a walking boot and that his next evaluation would take place in a week.

Barrett has not played since suffering the injury on Jan. 16 against the Phoenix Suns.

"It hurts. I never really been hurt before," Barrett said at the time. "I don't remember the last time I missed a game. But we play so many games, it was bound to happen."

Barrett is averaging 14.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game this season.
