Knicks' Cleanthony Early shot, robbed outside of NYC strip club: Report

Knicks forward Cleanthony Early was reportedly shot and robbed by a gang after leaving a Queens, N.Y. strip club on Wednesday morning.

Anthony was hit with a bullet in the leg after being "surrounded by four to six people wearing ski masks and robbed of his items and jewelry," including a gold necklace and the gold caps on his teeth, according to a report from the NY Daily News.

Early was shot once in the knee blocks away from CityScapes gentlemen's club in Maspeth while he was in an Uber cab. Three cars reportedly pulled up and boxed in the taxi he was sitting in. It is being described it as "a hold up" by police. 

He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition. There was no further word on his condition as of 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. 

This early morning incident comes on the heels of Early's teammate, Derrick Williams, getting robbed of expensive jewelry by a couple of women he met in a Manhattan nightclub just weeks ago.

Early, a 24-year-old Middletown native, is in his second season with the Knicks. He was drafted in 2014 after attending Wichita State.

He has played in 10 games this season, averaging less than four minutes and 1 point per game.
