MEMPHIS — Cam Reddish’s chances to prove to Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau that he belongs will have to wait until next season.
Reddish, who left the team on Tuesday during their road trip to New York for further evaluations, is out for the remainder of the season with a shoulder separation, the team said.
The Curtsy traded against Reddish in FebruaryAbandoned Kevin Knox and a conditional first-round pick unlikely to carry over next season due to Charlotte’s recent slip (it’s protected until the No. 19 pick this June).
The Post reported Thibodeau opposed the Reddish deal because he had a fixed rotation. Reddish was able to sneak into the rotation through a wave of injuries and was last a plus player. Thibodeau’s concern was that the former Duke forward wasn’t a strong enough defender.
Reddish, who has one year left on his pact, appeared in 15 games for the Knicks and averaged 6.1 points in 14 minutes but shot just 25.8 percent from three.
Reddish injured his right shoulder while rising to jam a Davion Mitchell drive, landing on his hand and shoulder in the process Knicks’ victory over the Kings. He was in a sling after the game.
On Wednesday in Dallas, Thibodeau said he did not want to comment when asked if Reddish’s injury will keep him out for long.
