Kornet hasn't appeared in an NBA contest since Nov. 4, and he seems unlikely to get much run with the Knicks after spending some time in the G League. Through four games this year, he's failed to score and has dished out two assists over 12 total minutes.
Kornet registered 17 points and 17 rebounds to go along with five blocks in the win Wednesday over the Canton Charge.
Kornet and fellow G-League teammate Isaiah Hicks dominated Wednesday's win, with the center nearly single-handily providing the only defensive presence in the paint. Tallying 36 percent of the team's rebounds despite playing just over 33 minutes is a reflection of the big man's talent and he should be a fantastic fantasy asset so long as he's with Westchester.
The demotion comes one day after Kornet saw the floor for just the fourth time in 10 games this season in the Knicks' 108-95 loss to the Wizards, with the big man playing two minutes in the contest. Kornet is clearly behind Mitchell Robinson, Noah Vonleh, Enes Kanter and Lance Thomas in the pecking order among the Knicks' frontcourt options, and will only plunge further in the ranks once rookie Kevin Knox (ankle) is cleared to make his season debut. Furthermore, there's a decent possibility that Kornet will lose his 15-man roster spot entirely once two-player Allonzo Trier reaches his 45-day limit for NBA time. Trier has played in all 10 games while averaging 21.5 minutes per contest, making him a more indispensable player than Kornet.
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.
