Top Knicks News

  • Knicks' Austin Rivers: Cleared to play

    Rivers (Achilles) is available for Tuesday's game against the Jazz.

    Rivers came off the bench and played 29 minutes during Sunday's loss to Portland, but he was seeing minutes in the teens prior to that, so we shouldn't necessarily expect him to see extended run again. In 25.8 minutes per game this season, he's averaging 8.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

  • Knicks' Frank Ntilikina: Cleared to play

    Ntilikina (knee) is available for Tuesday's game against the Jazz.

    Ntilikina was available for the Knicks' Sunday matchup against the Trail Blazers as well, but he failed to see the court. He might have a hard time cracking the rotation this season with a myriad of players in front of him, including Elfrid Payton, Immanuel Quickley, Austin Rivers, Alec Burks and RJ Barrett.

  • Knicks' Austin Rivers: Back on injury report

    Rivers is probable for Tuesday's game against Utah due to right Achilles soreness.

    Rivers missed time earlier in the month with an Achilles injury, but he logged 29 minutes off the bench in Sunday's matchup with Portland and figures to play a good chunk of minutes off the bench again Tuesday night. He's averaging 1.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in his last four matchups as a reserve.

  • Knicks' Frank Ntilikina: Dealing with knee issue

    Ntilikina is probable for Tuesday's game against Utah due to a right knee sprain.

    Ntilikina was active for the Knicks' last matchup Sunday with Portland, but he failed to see the court. He appears on track to be active again Tuesday, though it's unclear whether he'll see any minutes.

  • Knicks' Reggie Bullock: Out again Tuesday

    Bullock (neck) won't play Tuesday against Utah.

    Bullock will miss his second straight contest due to neck soreness. His next chance to return comes Friday against Cleveland.

  • Knicks' Austin Rivers: Handles big minutes in return

    Rivers (Achilles) logged 29 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 116-113 loss to the Trail Blazers, finishing with three points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and two steals.

    Head coach Tom Thibodeau wasn't shy about reintegrating Rivers into the rotation following a two-game absence, but the 28-year-old did little to make a case for earning major minutes moving forward. In addition to rookie Immanuel Quickley -- who exploded for a career-high 31 points in 24 minutes -- Rivers will also have to fend off Reggie Bullock (neck) for playing time once he's healthy.

  • Knicks' Frank Ntilikina: Excluded from rotation in return

    Ntilikina (knee) was active for Sunday's 116-113 loss to the Trail Blazers, but he didn't leave the bench during the game.

    Ntilikina was cleared to play for the first time since Dec. 29 after he missed more than three weeks with a sprained knee, but head coach Tom Thibodeau couldn't find a spot for him in the Knicks' deep guard and wing rotation. The Knicks will eventually return Reggie Bullock (neck) to action, which will likely put Ntilikina behind at least seven players (RJ Barrett, Elfrid Payton, Alec Burks, Bullock, Kevin Knox, Immanuel Quickley and Austin Rivers) on the depth chart.

  • Knicks' Immanuel Quickley: Erupts for career-high 31 points

    Quickley registered a career-high 31 points (9-18 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 8-8 FT) to go with four assists and three rebounds across 24 minutes in Sunday's 116-113 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    The rookie first-round pick's playing time has been up and down this season, but when given extra run, he's shown the ability to put up big offensive numbers. The 21-year-old offered his best outing to date Sunday, knocking down half of his shots and going perfect from the free-throw line while holding down a team-high 41.3 usage rate. The scoring outburst will likely make Quickley a popular pickup off the waiver wire, but he'll still be difficult to trust in 12-team leagues in light of his inconsistent playing time. Quickley had been held under 20 minutes in each of his previous three games, and he could be forced into a smaller role if Reggie Bullock (neck) -- who sat out Sunday -- is back in action Tuesday in Utah.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Puts up 18 points in starting role

    Burks finished with 18 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals and one assist across 27 minutes in Sunday's 116-113 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    With Reggie Bullock (neck) sidelined, head coach Tom Thibodeau moved Burks into the starting five for the first time this season. The 29-year-old took advantage of the promotion, shooting efficiently from the field while establishing a new season high in three-pointers. Bullock's eventual return could cost Burks a few minutes, but he should still see plenty of usage if he ends up settling back in as New York's sixth man.

  • Knicks' Julius Randle: Sharp from free-throw line in loss

    Randle recorded 25 points (7-18 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 10-11 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and two steals across 33 minutes in Sunday's 116-113 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Randle continues to pile up counting stats at a prolific rate, but his efficiency from the field has taken a significant hit of late. He's now failed to make half of his shots in four straight games, dropping his field-goal percentage to 47.3 on the season. On a positive note, Randle continued his run of sharpshooting from the free-throw line, with his 10-for-11 success rate Sunday boosting his season-long mark to a career-best 80.8 percent.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Starting Sunday

    Burks is starting Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Burks will enter the starting lineup Sunday for the first time this year with Reggie Bullock (neck) unavailable for the Knicks. Over his past two games since returning from a sprained left ankle, Burks is averaging 10.0 points and 5.0 rebounds over 29.0 minutes per contest.

  • Knicks' Reggie Bullock: Officially out Sunday

    Bullock (neck) won't play Sunday against Portland.

    Bullock was doubtful for Sunday's game as he deals with a sore neck, so it's not entirely surprising to see him unavailable for the Knicks. Alec Burks and Austin Rivers could see increased run in his absence.

  • Knicks' Frank Ntilikina: Good to go Sunday

    Ntilikina (knee) will be available for Sunday's game at Portland.

    The guard has been out since Dec. 29, but he'll be available to make his return to action off the bench Sunday night. He'll likely play a fairly limited role after totaling just 42 minutes through four appearances this season.
