Ron Baker will miss at least one game for the New York Knicks after suffer a fracture around his eye.
New York Knicks’ point guard Ron Baker took a nasty shot from New Orleans Pelicans’ star Anthony David this past weekend and ended up having to leave the game.
The Knicks posted an update on Baker’s condition on Twitter on Tuesday, prior to their game against the San Antonio Spurs. He won’t play against the Spurs and is considered day-to-day with a left orbital fracture.
Ron Baker sustained a left orbital fracture in Saturday’s game at New Orleans. He is out for tonight’s game against San Antonio and is being fitted for a face mask. He is day-to-day.

The Knicks next game is against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night down in out nation’s capital and I wouldn’t expect Baker to play in that game either. When he does return, I’m sure Baker will be wearing a mask on his face in order to protect his eye.
With Baker out, I would expect to see more of Ramon Sessions, who’s played sparingly this season, since being benched after an 0-3 start.
Baker has been averaging 3.2 points per game and 2.1 assists per game in a crowded New York backcourt.
