Knox totaled seven points (2-5 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and one rebound during Tuesday's loss to the Spurs. With the game out of hand in the third quarter, the forward managed 19 minutes of action, which was his most since Jan. 24 against Utah. His seven points and two threes were also his best total since Jan. 13 against Brooklyn when he recorded 13 points. Entering Tuesday, Knox was averaging 5.0 points and 1.9 rebounds.
Knox didn't play in Monday's win over the Hawks. Knox appeared in each of the past two games before Monday's absence. Since Jan. 26, the Kentucky product has only appeared in four games while scoring a total of two points.
Knox (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Sunday in the Knicks' 129-115 loss to the Clippers. With Reggie Bullock (neck) returning from a three-game absence Sunday, the Knicks had all of their key guards and wings available for one of the few times all season. After being held under 10 minutes in both of his previous two contests, Knox was unsurprisingly squeezed out of the rotation to make room for Bullock, allowing Alec Burks to run with Immanuel Quickley and Austin Rivers as part of a three-guard second unit. Before sitting out Sunday's contest, Knox had averaged 6.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.3 three-pointers in 18.2 minutes per game over 20 outings.
Knox compiled 19 points (7-17 FG, 5-12 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Monday's 109-88 loss to the Hornets. Despite his impressive skills and versatility as an all-purpose playmaker in college, Knox has yet to realize his full potential in the NBA. Monday's performance was evidence of what he can do when given the opportunity. He showed off a deadly three-point shot and also mixed it up in the paint. He's trapped behind Julius Randle, and RJ Barrett on the depth chart, and Obi Toppin's return will make playing time hard to come by. He'll need to maximize his limited opportunities now, while he has them.
Knox (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Nuggets. The Knicks continue to include Knox on their pregame injury reports, though he's yet to miss any time this season. In his most recent outing Friday against OKC, Knox posted nine points and four rebounds off the bench.
