New York Knicks forward Cleanthony Early was shot in the knee early Wednesday morning after leaving a strip club in Queens, New York, according to reports.

Early was reportedly shot in his right knee then robbed of jewelry.

Early was taken to a hospital, then transported to another. The Daily News reports that the wound is not believed to be life-threatening.

Early was a second-round draft pick of the Knicks in 2014. He's played sparingly this season while hopping back and forth between the Knicks and their D-League affiliate.

As the Daily News notes, Early is the second Knicks player involved in a robbery this season. Forward Derrick Williams reportedly had $600,000 of jewelry stolen from his home after partying with two women.
