BROOKLYN The Kings announced forward Carl Landry would miss the rest of the season after Monday’s MRI revealed medial meniscus tear in his right knee.
Landry will have surgery to repair the tear in the near future.
The knee began bothering Landry following morning shoot-around last Friday in Los Angeles before the Kings played the Lakers.
Injuries limited Landry to 18 games in his first year of a four-year, $26 million contract. Landry did not play until January after tearing his left hip flexor the first week of training camp.
