Kornet (ankle/hamstring) will not play during Friday's summer league consolation bracket finale against the Pelicans, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Kornet, who saw 327 minutes with New York last season and shot 35.4 percent from deep, will watch summer play end from the sidelines. Due to injury, he appeared in just one contest, posting seven points, two rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.
Kornet (hamstring) made his debut in Thursday's 75-82 summer league loss to the Celtics, posting seven points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists across 21 minutes.
Kornet had missed the entire summer league schedule up until this point with a hamstring injury, so it was a positive development that he was ultimately able to take the court Thursday. However, he appeared to be a bit rusty and managed just a 37.5 percent clip from the field and 33.3 percent from deep. Despite the struggles, Kornet has already locked up a guaranteed deal for the upcoming campaign, so he'll be with the Knicks come training camp.
Kornet has been ruled out of Tuesday's summer league game against the Lakers for rest purposes, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Kornet has missed time previously this summer with a hamstring injury, so it's at least encouraging that he's been given a rest designation Tuesday. Still, Kornet will get another night off and at this point, there's a chance he's shut down for the rest of summer league. Kornet already earned a standard one-year contract with the Knicks for the upcoming campaign, so he's proven to be a capable NBA player.
Kornet is out for Saturday's summer league tilt against the Hawks due to a right hamstring injury, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.
The organization will opt to play it safe with Kornet, who could see an expanded role during the upcoming season with Kristaps Porzingis (knee) set to miss a chunk of the year and Kyle O'Quinn joining the Pacers. His next chance to take the floor arrives Sunday against the Jazz.
An undrafted rookie out of Vanderbilt last season, Kornet signed with the Knicks to a two-way contract. While he spent a chunk of the season with the team's G-League affiliate, Kornet still showed plenty of promise in the 20 games he played at the NBA level, averaging 6.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 16.4 minutes. The 7-foot-1 big man also knocked down 1.4 three-pointers at a 35.4 percent clip, giving him that coveted floor-spacing ability at his size. With Kyle O'Quinn likely headed elsewhere in free agency, Kornet should step into a more consistent role in the frontcourt rotation. However, Enes Kanter's presence will likely keep Kornet off the fantasy radar in the bulk of leagues.
