Mudiay (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Hawks, Chris Iseman of The Record reports.
Mudiay continues to work through a sprained right ankle and wasn't able to practice Tuesday, so it's unclear when he'll be able to get back on the floor. The Knicks' next two games come as a back-to-back Friday and Saturday, so there seems to be a realistic chance that Mudiay misses at least one of those contests as well. Trey Burke has officially been named the Knicks' starting point guard, while Frank Ntilikina is sliding over to the wing as a starter as well. Both players should see added time as a facilitator with Mudiay out.
Mudiay didn't participate in Monday's practice due to a sprained right ankle, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.
This is the first report of Mudiay dealing with any type of ankle injury, so it's unclear exactly when the point guard picked up the issue. The severity of Mudiay's injury will likely come to light before Wednesday, when the Knicks will open their season against the Hawks.
Mudiay will start over Trey Burke during Friday's game against the Pelicans, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Coach David Fizdale apparently wants to see how Mudiay meshes with the starters. Through two preseason contests, Mudiay has averaged 3.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists across 15.5 minutes. He's shot poorly, going 2-of-11 from the field.
Mudiay (concussion) will be sidelined for Wednesday's season finale against the Cavaliers, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.
Mudiay will be unable to pass through the league's concussion protocol before the end of the year, so he'll miss Wednesday's game. After being traded to New York at the deadline, he averaged 8.8 points on 36.8 percent shooting, 3.9 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 22.4 minutes.
Mudiay (concussion) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Cavaliers.
Mudiay remains in the NBA's concussion protocol and is uncertain to receive clearance to play again before the Knicks' season concludes Wednesday with a rematch with the Cavaliers in Cleveland. The 22-year-old's absence for a second straight game will open up a spot in the rotation for Jarrett Jack as the backup point guard behind starter Trey Burke. Jack starred off the bench in Saturday's 115-102 loss to the Bucks, finishing with 18 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists and five rebounds in 26 minutes.
