PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who suffered a left-knee injury on a steal Sunday, will undergo an MRI this morning to help gauge the severity of the injury.

A day after the issue arose, Nieuwenhuis said the knee felt similar.

Nieuwenhuis will be examined in Florida and will not need to travel to New York.

"I mean, I can put weight on it and stuff like that," Nieuwenhuis said.
