Knox tallied 17 points (5-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and two assists in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 96-86 victory over Chicago.
Knox had his first double-double in over six weeks Tuesday, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds in the victory over the Bulls. Efficiency was an issue once again and has basically been the sticking point when looking at his rookie season. He also struggles to put up numbers outside of points and three's, leaving him as more of a fringe standard league player.
Knox finished with 21 points (7-13 FG
Knox continued his strong play to end the season, topping double digits for the eight time in his past 10 games. After suffering through growing pains at the beginning of the season, the rookie forward has managed to shoot above 40-percent from the field for the past month, upping his season-long field goal percentage to 37.0. While he continues to post largely empty lines asided from scoring, Knox has secured a large enough workload to nearly guarantee above-average scoring production on a regular basis.
Knox has received exactly 40 minutes in back-to-back contests, which suggests the Knicks don't have much concern about his health after a recent bout with a minor ankle injury. With New York already having seemingly shut down several veterans for the season, Knox should benefit from robust playing time over the final five games. That alone should be enough for him to deliver quality point totals, though his lagging across-the-board production and poor shooting don't make him a fit for every season-long roster.
Knox (ankle) will be available Thursday against the Raptors.
A sprained right ankle won't keep Knox from playing Thursday. Across 12 March appearances, he's averaging 12.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 27.8 minutes.
Knox (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Raptors, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Knox, who has been recovering from a sprained right ankle, participated in Wednesday's practice, which is an encouraging sign for his availability Thursday. More information may arrive following morning shootaround.
