WFAN is reporting that Knicks guard Jamal Crawford will miss the rest of the season with a right ankle stress fracture. Surgery is likely. More to follow.

UPDATE: Via ESPN.com

Monday, Jamal Crawford hit a late 3-pointer to give the New York Knicks a win over the Miami Heat.

Tuesday, the team learned he will likely require season-ending surgery on a stress fracture in his right ankle, though the team said it’s possible he could return if the Knicks make the playoffs.

“It’s very disappointing, honestly,” Crawford told reporters on Tuesday. “You never expect anything like this to happen. I guess it’s just part of life.”

Crawford told reporters that surgery is “not definite, but a strong possibility.” He also said he was told there were “no other options” to repair the fracture. He said he had been feeling pain in his ankle for a few weeks and had X-rays after Monday’s game and an MRI and CT scan on Tuesday.
