Trier paced the second unit in minutes in a game when the Knicks bench saw plenty of extra run overall. The 22-year-old rookie has cooled off considerably since a hot November when he averaged 13.2 points on 48.9 percent shooting, including 44.8 percent from distance. Trier averaged just 7.0 points on a 30.4 percent success rate from the field in December, and Tuesday marked his first game with a double-digit point tally since Dec. 8. He retains a consistent role in the backcourt rotation, so he'll look to build on his effort versus the Warriors when facing the Pacers on Friday.
Trier totaled eight points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), and two rebounds in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 109-95 loss to Milwaukee.
Trier returned after missing seven straight games with a hamstring injury, scoring eight points in 18 minutes. He looked fine out there and was creating his own shot on the offensive end. The Knicks like what they have in Trier and his playing time should continue to increase as he works his way back to full health. He has demonstrated the ability to provide solid contributions on the offensive end and despite the limited skill set, is worth a look as a points streamer as soon as his minutes increase.
Trier (hamstring) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Bucks, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.
Begley's report merely confirms what was expected after Trier was able to put in a full practice two days earlier. The undrafted rookie has missed the past seven games with the left hamstring strain, with the injury allowing Frank Ntilikina to get another look in the New York rotation. With Ntilikina shooting just 21.4 percent from the field over the last five of those contests, it's possible that coach David Fizdale swaps him out of the second unit in favor of Trier for the Christmas Day game.
Trier (hamstring) practiced with the team Sunday, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Trier's missed the Knicks' last seven games with a left hamstring strain, however it looks as though he will play in Tuesday's Christmas day matchup with the Bucks. There's been no official ruling on whether or not he will play, however participating in practice is a step in the right direction. Trier was averaging 11.3 points over 23.3 minutes prior to the injury.
Trier (hamstring) won't play Wednesday against Philadelphia, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Trier is still nursing a hamstring strain and is set to miss his sixth consecutive game while on the mend. The 76ers are set to face off against Atlanta on Friday, which will be Triers next opportunity to take the court.
