Knicks G Payton (hamstring) out at least 10 more days
New York Knicks point guard Elfrid Payton will be sidelined at least 10 more days with a strained right hamstring. The team made that announcement after Payton was examined on Tuesday. He missed his 10th consecutive game in Monday's 123-105 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Payton, 25, has averaged 8.0 points, 3.8 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals in four games (three starts) in his first season with the Knicks. A lottery pick (10th overall) in the 2014 NBA Draft, Payton signed a two-year, $16 million deal with New York on July 8.
