Top Knicks News

  • Knicks' Noah Vonleh: Double-double in 25 minutes

    Vonleh submitted 13 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist across 25 minutes Thursday in the Knicks' 101-100 loss to the Wizards in London.

    While this was a quality performance for Vonleh, it was still frustrating for fantasy managers that the big man's playing time was capped in a game in which he avoided foul trouble entirely. Vonleh has now played 25 minutes or fewer in five of the Knicks' six contests, which has put a crimp on his overall production. New York returned Mitchell Robinson (groin) to the frontcourt rotation Thursday and will likely get Enes Kanter (personal/illness) back from a three-game absence Monday against the Thunder, which will further hinder Vonleh's chances of regaining minutes.

  • Knicks' Courtney Lee: Still out of rotation

    Lee (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Thursday in the Knicks' 101-100 loss to the Wizards.

    Coach David Fizdale utilized a five-man bench in the London game, but there still wasn't enough room for Lee, who hasn't cracked the rotation since Dec. 27. As a veteran on a rebuilding club ripe with younger wing prospects, Lee may need to be traded elsewhere before he picks up meaningful minutes on a consistent basis.

  • Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Limited run in return

    Robinson (groin) played 10 minutes and provided four points (2-2 FG), two rebounds and one block Thursday in the Knicks' 101-100 loss to the Wizards.

    Robinson had missed the Knicks' previous 13 games with a sprained ankle and then the groin issue but was cleared for the London matchup after practicing earlier this week without any complications. Unsurprisingly, Robinson didn't play major minutes in his return, with coach David Fizdale instead leaning heavily on Luke Kornet and Noah Vonleh at center. The Knicks were without the services of Enes Kanter on Thursday, so Robinson's path to meaningful playing time could become more muddled in the team's next game Monday against the Thunder, when Kanter is expected to be available.

  • Knicks' Tim Hardaway: Quiet in loss

    Hardaway had just eight points (2-7 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT) in Thursday's loss to the Wizards.

    Hardaway was cleared to play after missing the team's last game with a hamstring issue, but he wasn't overly aggressive, as his seven field goal attempts matched a season-low. The Michigan product will get three days off as the Knicks travel back from London before Monday's home matchup with the Thunder.

  • Knicks' Luke Kornet: Scores 16 in loss

    Kornet had 16 points (5-11 FG, 4-6 3PT, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, five steals, two assists and a block in Thursday's loss to Washington.

    Kornet returned to the starting lineup Thursday after coming off the bench in the Knicks' last game, and he saw 34 minutes of action for the second straight contest. While Kornet has started all but one game since Christmas, his production -- and minutes -- have been rather volatile.

  • Knicks' Emmanuel Mudiay: Scores 25 in London loss

    Mudiay had 25 points (11-18 FG, 103 3PT, 2-2 FT) and seven rebounds in Thursday's loss to the Wizards.

    Mudiay also added two assists, though he committed five turnovers in 31 minutes of action. Mudiay continues to be the Knicks' No. 1 option at point guard, with Frank Ntilikina currently the flavor of the week as the backup. Ntilikina played 17 minutes Thursday and went 1-of-7 from the field. Trey Burke was a DNP-CD.

  • Knicks' Tim Hardaway: Will be available Thursday

    Hardaway (hamstring) will be available for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

    Hardaway was questionable coming in with a sore left hamstring, but after going through shootaround he's been cleared to take the floor in London. The Michigan product was held out of the Knicks' previous game against Philadelphia on Sunday.

  • Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Good to go Thursday

    Robinson (groin) will be available for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

    After going through practice Wednesday and shootaround Thursday morning, Robinson has been deemed fit to play for the game in London. Given that Robinson has been out for the last month, the Knicks will likely ease him back into the rotation, meaning Luke Kornet and Noah Vonleh could see most of the minutes at center for now, especially with Enes Kanter not making the trip.

  • Knicks' Enes Kanter: Won't play in London

    Kanter is not with the Knicks in London for Thursday's game against the Wizards, citing personal safety, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN reports.

    Kanter has been politically outspoken about his home country of Turkey, and he'll opt to remain in America for his own safety, stating, "It's pretty sad that just all this stuff affects my career and basketball, because I want to be out there helping my team win... I can't even go out there and just do my job. So it's pretty sad." With Kanter out, Luke Kornet should continue to start at center.

  • Knicks' Tim Hardaway: Tabbed as questionable Thursday

    Hardaway (hamstring) is listed as questionable heading into Thursday's matchup against Wizards in London, Zach Rosen of the Wizards' official site reports.

    Hardaway missed Sunday's contest against the 76ers due to a bothering hamstring strain and his status will likely come down to a game-time decision Thursday. Damyean Dotson started in place of Hardaway in Sunday's matchup and may see another spot-start if Hardaway is inactive Thursday.

  • Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Could play in London

    Robinson (groin) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Wizards in London, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

    Robinson has been sidelined for the last month, first due to a sprained ankle that had fully healed before he tweaked his groin during a practice in Los Angeles about two weeks ago. Per Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record, the big man now has a good chance of returning to action Thursday after putting in some 5-on-5 scrimmage work earlier this week. Coach David Fizdale will likely wait to reassess Robinson in Thursday's morning shootaround before rendering a verdict on his status, but the rookie would presumably re-enter the rotation if available. The Knicks have only two other centers available (Luke Kornet and Noah Vonleh) after Enes Kanter didn't make the trip to London after failing to secure a visa.

  • Knicks' Trey Burke: Falls out of rotation

    Burke (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Sunday in the Knicks' 108-105 loss to the 76ers.

    Burke had scored between 10 and 16 points while averaging 20.8 minutes per game over the past four contests, but he dropped out of the rotation entirely after Frank Ntilikina (ankle) was cleared to return to action. Given that Ntilkina, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, is viewed as more of a long-term asset, it's hard to imagine the rebuilding Knicks will have much motivation to hand a veteran on an expiring deal like Burke meaningful minutes when the backcourt is relatively healthy.

  • Knicks' Frank Ntilikina: Solid line in return

    Ntilikina (ankle) totaled eight points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block across 28 minutes Sunday in the Knicks' 108-105 loss to the 76ers.

    After missing the previous three games with the ankle issue, Ntilikina wasn't eased back into the rotation in his return, as the 28 minutes were his second-most since Nov. 20. Coach David Fizdale's rotations can be unpredictable from game to game, but for the time being, Ntilikina looks like the Knicks' top backup point guard. Trey Burke dropped out of the rotation Sunday with the Frenchman available.
