NEW YORK — Julius Randle won’t play for the New York Knicks on Monday in Charlotte because of a dislocated right shoulder.

Randle was hurt Saturday with 4:27 remaining in the Knicks’ 125-109 victory over Miami.

He was driving to the basket when Heat rookie Jaime Jaquez Jr. stepped in front of him trying to take a charge. Randle landed hard and once he finally got up, he was holding the area around his shoulder and quickly went to the locker room.
