The New York Knicks said point guard Derrick Rose faces at least eight weeks out of action after undergoing ankle surgery on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old, who rejoined the team in July on a three-year deal from the Detroit Pistons, had been suffering from right ankle soreness following last week’s 116-103 win over the Houston Rockets.

The Knicks are 12th in the National Basketball Association’s Eastern Conference with a 14-17 record and host the Washington Wizards on Thursday.

The three-time All-Star, who, at 22 years old became the youngest MVP in NBA history back in 2011, had been hobbled by injuries a year after his MVP season.
