Trier (calf) is expected to miss "a couple more games," per coach David Fizdale, Chris Iseman of The Record reports.
Trier missed Wednesday's game with a sore calf, and the ailment is apparently serious enough that he'll likely miss at least the next two games. New York plays Friday and Sunday before a three-day break leading up to next Thursday's matchup with the Raptors.
Trier is out Wednesday against the Jazz due to a sore calf, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
Trier presumably picked up the injury Monday against the Raptors. Damyean Dotson, Mario Hezonja and Kadeem Allen could see extra run as a result of Trier's absence.
Trier was the only Knick who could get anything going in Monday's 36-point blowout loss, comfortably leading the team in scoring. He's had some hot scoring streaks this season, and Monday's outburst may be the beginning of a new one.
Trier collected 29 points (8-16 FG, 3-4 FT, 10-15 FT), eight rebounds, and two steals in 30 minutes during Monday's 115-108 loss to Sacramento.
Trier has now scored in double-digits in four straight games, capped off by an impressive 29-point effort Monday. As long as Trier is shooting the ball well, he is a player to consider streaming in if you need points. His role is quite volatile and head coach David Fizdale appears to have no loyalty to any players.
Trier popped for 18 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 9-10 FT) to go with five rebounds, three steals and two assists in 21 minutes in Tuesday's 108-103 win over the Magic.
Though it's the third time in five games in which Trier has poured in at least 18 points, the rookie is still a fairly volatile contributor for the Knicks and isn't helped by coach David Fizdale's ever-changing rotations. Before his recent run of scoring outbursts, Trier had failed to clear seven points in a six-game stretch from Feb. 1 through Feb. 11. He'll probably need to show more consistency before gaining traction outside of deeper leagues.
