NEW YORK -- Knicks guard Ron Baker will have right shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the season.

The Knicks say Monday that Baker will have an arthroscopic shoulder stabilization. It will be performed Wednesday by Dr. Answorth Allen.

The team says the expected recovery time is four to six months.

Baker dislocated the shoulder and tore his labrum Jan. 30 in a victory over Brooklyn. The backup guard finishes with 2.4 points per game in 29 games.
