The Knicks will not be extending a qualifying offer to Hicks, making him an unrestricted free agent, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.
Hicks was on a two-way contract with the Knicks last season and played in just three games. He averaged 16 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks during his time with their G-League affiliate in Westchester.
Hicks totaled 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two blocks, one assist and a steal over 21 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Pistons on Wednesday.
Hicks finished Wednesday's game with season-highs in minutes, points, rebounds and blocks in just his third game of the season. He's barely been on the court this season, so Wednesday's performance was certainly a surprise.
Hicks (hip) logged eight minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Knicks' 96-86 win over the Bulls, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG), two rebounds and one block.
Hicks had been unavailable for the Knicks' previous three contests due to the hip issue but was cleared to suit up Tuesday and made what was just his second appearance at the NBA level this season. With his obligations to the G League's Westchester Knicks now fulfilled, Hicks, a two-way player, should suit up again in New York's season finale Wednesday against the Pistons. Expect Hicks to once again play a limited role off the bench.
Hicks (hip) won't play Sunday against the Wizards, NBC Sports Wizards reports.
Hicks was considered questionable due to a hip issue, but he's been ruled out. This won't be a big loss for New York, as Hicks hasn't played much of a role within the rotation all season even when healthy.
Hicks (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Wizards.
Hicks hasn't been a part of New York's rotation all season, so it's unclear if he would play even if healthy.
Hicks (hip) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Rockets.
While Hicks, as expected, remains out, his absence will not have any impact on the team's rotation Friday.
Hicks (hip) is out Wednesday against the Magic.
As expected, Hicks will continue to miss time. His next chance to play arrives Friday against the Rockets.
Hicks (hip) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against Orlando.
Hicks is dealing with a sore hip, but his absence shouldn't make a difference, as the G Leaguer hasn't been a part of the regular rotation at any point this season.
Hicks (groin) finished Saturday's 110-102 loss to Long Island with eight points (4-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Hicks wound up missing five games dating back to the end of February with a ongoing groin injury. Stephen Zimmerman took command of the center position during that stretch, but if Saturday's lineup was any indication, Hicks will slot right back into the starting lineup alongside Jameel Warney, with Zimmerman taking on a sixth-man role off the bench.
Hicks (groin) did not play in Thursday's contest against Windy City.
That's now three straight contests Hicks has missed, dating back to last Thursday's contest against the Swarm, in which the center was listed as a "DND" but was not cited for any type of additional information. Westchester has just five games remaining on their schedule, but are expected to make the playoffs.
Hicks tallied 15 points (5-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in the loss Monday to Westchester.
Hicks appears to rounding back into form after missing nearly a month due to an ankle injury, tallying 27 points in Saturday's game, and nearly reaching a double-double Monday. Hicks could continue to miss some time as he bounces between the NBA and the G League, but expect the center to be a fairly consistent source of points and rebounds so long as he takes the court.
Hicks (ankle) scored nine points (3-12 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and recorded seven rebounds along with six assists and two blocks across 26 minutes Friday against Rio Grande Valley.
Hicks missed significant time due to an ankle injury, although he didn't appear to face any restrictions in Friday's contest. His shot did look rusty, however, missing all five of his threes while shooting just 25.0 percent from the field. Hicks will aim to find more success Monday against Salt Lake City.
Hicks (ankle) did not play in Friday's contest against Raptors 905.
Hicks is two weeks away from missing a full month due to an ankle injury, but hardly any information has come in the form of a potential return table. As of now, the Westchester center is firmly unavailable, but that could change in the coming days.
Hicks hasn't appeared in a game for the G League's Westchester Knicks since Dec. 19 due to a left ankle injury, Chris Priczak of RidiculousUpside.com reports.
It's unclear when Hicks, a two-way player for the Knicks, will be ready to return to game action. After appearing in 18 games at the NBA level as an undrafted rookie in 2017-18, Hicks has played exclusively with the G League affiliate so far this season.
Hicks scored 27 points to go along with nine rebounds and an assist in the 106-95 win over the Canton Charge.
Hicks attempted 19 shots, by far a team high, but that was due in part to a non existent bench as Westchester scored just 16 points combined from its second unit. The forward did cough over six turnovers which helped the Charge hover around perhaps longer than they should have, but Hicks' scoring prowess was nevertheless critical in the win.
Hicks (groin) has been cleared to play in Tuesday's summer league game against the Lakers, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.
Hicks was forced to sit out Saturday's contest due to a strained right groin, but as expected, it wasn't anything overly serious. He's now been cleared for a return on Tuesday and he should slot into the frontcourt rotation. Considering Hicks has yet to take the court in summer league this year, his role is somewhat unclear, though his status as a two-way player suggests he could get extended run.
Hicks is out for Saturday's summer league game against the Hawks due to a strained right groin, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.
There's no indication the injury is serious, but it's causing Hicks enough discomfort to keep him out Saturday. His next chance to play arrives Sunday.
Hicks will ink a two-way contract with the Knicks, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.
Hicks appeared in just 18 games with New York last season, averaging 4.4 points and 2.3 rebounds across 13.3 minutes. He spent most of the year in the G-League, which he'll likely do again in 2018-19, where he posted 15.6 points and 7.8 rebounds.
Hicks tallied 4.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.9 assists over 18 games played with the Knicks in 2017-18.
Hicks wasn't much of an offensive threat during his rookie campaign although he did score in double figures twice. His season high came on the final day of the regular season when he went off for 15 points at Cleveland. The former National Champion at UNC will be looking to secure a new contract when free agency opens this summer.
Hicks had four points (1-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists, and one block in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 97-73 loss to the Magic.
Hicks earned double-digit minutes for the eighth time, albeit in a blowout loss. He had seen just 18 minutes over his last three appearances combined, this after receiving double-digit minutes in each of his five previous appearances. With the Knicks long removed from playoff contention, there could be some chances for Hicks to put together decent stats over the final four tilts.
