Labissiere didn't take the floor in Saturday's 127-115 loss to G League Raptors 905. Labissiere has played just six games this year, as he's often left out of the rotation. The 24-year-old has connected on just 37.5 percent of his field goals, leading to 5.2 points per game.
Labissiere was waived by the Knicks on Friday. Labissiere was signed by New York earlier this week, but he won't suit up for the NBA roster. The 24-year-old will likely be re-routed to the team's G League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks.
Labissiere agreed Monday with the Knicks on an Exhibit 10 contract, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports. The 2016 first-round pick appeared in 33 games for Portland last season and averaged 5.8 points and 1.3 rebounds in 17.2 minutes. He'll join the Knicks for training camp but will likely be cut and re-routed to the team's G League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks.
Labissiere (knee) had been cleared to return to modified team practice before the NBA suspended its season March 11, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. As Spencer notes, Labissiere's return to practice likely marks the final hurdle he needed to clear in his recovery from a left knee chondral injury, which had prevented him from playing since late December, when he was still a member of the Trail Blazers. With the NBA season unlikely to be resumed until at least May, Labissiere should be at or near full health once the Hawks are cleared to resume training. Even though he should be available for whatever games the Hawks have left, Labissiere is unlikely to hold a meaningful role in coach Lloyd Pierce's rotation.
Labissiere (knee) has been cleared to participate in impact activities and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Labissiere is making good progress, but it will still be at least two weeks before he potentially steps on the court again. Look for more updates as he continues to hit various other milestones in his recovery.
