NEW YORK (TICKER) -- New York Knicks rookie guard Frank Williams suffered a fractured left wrist in a summer league game Tuesday and will need to undergo surgery.

The Knicks announced that the first-round pick suffered a non-displaced fracture of the scaphoid of his left wrist in a game in Boston and will undergo surgery on Thursday.

The procedure will be performed by Dr. Charles Melone and Dr. Susan Craig Scott at Beth Israel Hospital in New York. Williams' recovery time will be determined following the surgery.

The 22-year-old Williams signed with the Knicks on July 8, allowing him to play for the summer league team.

Williams originally was selected 25th overall by the Denver Nuggets and sent to the Knicks along with star forward Antonio McDyess for Brazilian forward Nene Hilario, the seventh overall pick; center Marcus Camby; and guard Mark Jackson.

The 6-3 Williams left Illinois after his junior season and is expected to compete with veterans Charlie Ward and Howard Eisley for time at point guard.

Williams rebounded from a slow start to finish with a solid junior season for Illinois, leading them to the "Sweet 16" for the second straight season. He averaged 16.2 points and 4.4 assists per game.
