The team is calling Afflalo day-to-day after an MRI revealed the strain, but Afflalo says it might take two weeks before his hamstring is 100%. That would mean his status for the first week of the season is in jeopardy.
The Knicks signed Afflalo to a two-year, $16 million deal in July.
They open their season on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET in Milwaukee against the Bucks.
