Trier isn't playing in Sunday's summer league game against the Suns due to illness. Trier is evidently feeling under the weather, so he'll be held out of Sunday night's matchup. His next chance to return will come Tuesday against the Raptors.
Trier recorded 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 24 minutes in Friday's 80-74 loss to the Pelicans in the Las Vegas Summer League (game halted due to earthquake). Trier will enter the 2019-20 season with a crowded depth chart to contend with. The additions of Elfrid Payton, Reggie Bullock and Wayne Ellington will make backcourt opportunities scarce, and it's safe to assume that Dennis Smith and R.J. Barret will assume the starting duties in the backcourt. The situation leaves Trier relegated to backup duty. The Arizona product had flashes of brilliance last season and has the potential to make an impact, but he might have to wait for an injury or a move to another team to realize his potential.
Trier's $3.5 million team option was exercised by the Knicks on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The undrafted rookie out of Arizona appeared in 64 games for the Knicks, and he impressed enough for the organization to bring him back for 2019-20. Trier, in 22.8 minutes per game, averaged 10.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists on 44.8 percent shooting.
Trier (calf) will not play Wednesday against Detroit. The Knicks will be without a number of regulars, and Trier will end the season on a streak of 11 straight missed games due to a strained left calf. Nonetheless, the undrafted rookie was one of the few positives for New York, as he appeared in 64 games and posted 10.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists with 45/39/80 shooting splits.
Trier (calf) won't play Tuesday against the Bulls. Trier hasn't sniffed the court since Mar. 18 due to a calf injury. His last chance to play will come Wednesday against Detroit, although it's likely we've seen the last of Trier this season.
