New York Knicks forward Cam Reddish will reportedly miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season with a right shoulder separation, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Reddish's recovery timeline is six weeks, Wojnarowski added. He should be ready for summer workouts and the start of the 2022-23 campaign. 

Reddish suffered the injury while trying to block a shot by Davion Mitchell in the fourth quarter of New York's 131-115 win over the Sacramento Kings. He was then ruled out for the team's 107-77 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday with what was called a sprained shoulder. 

The Knicks acquired Reddish from the Atlanta Hawks earlier this season for a first-round pick and Kevin Knox II. He didn't become a real factor in Tom Thibodeau's rotation, though, averaging just 6.1 points and 1.4 rebounds in 14.3 minutes per game through 15 contests. 

Reddish has missed a significant amount of time in each of his first three NBA seasons with groin, Achilles and ankle injuries. He has never played more than 58 games in a season, which came during his rookie year. 

In 133 career games, the 22-year-old is averaging 10.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists while shooting 38.7 percent from the floor and 32.5 percent from deep. His $19.3 million rookie contract expires after the 2022-23 season.

After a hot start to the 2021-22 campaign, the Knicks have plummeted in the standings. They sit 12th in the Eastern Conference with a 28-38 record. With the team on the verge of missing the playoffs, having Reddish sidelined won't necessarily have much of an impact this season.
