Knicks 3-point specialist Alec Burks set to return to lineup

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Alec Burks’ 3-point accuracy has been sharper than his injury projections. When he sprained his right ankle in the season’s third game on Dec. 27, the Knicks’ hot-shooting swingman thought he’d be back in a flash. “I underestimated it,’’ Burks said after Wednesday’s practice in San Francisco. “I felt if I took a couple of...

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Of all the Knicks, he is the one who will receive the most scrutiny for as long as he plays here. He was the No. 3 pick in a draft in which Zion Williamson went 1 and Ja Morant went 2. He was the Knicks’ first-round pick after a year in which they won 17...

The Knicks couldn’t shoot either – not even...

Cole Anthony has chance to prove Knicks made big mistake

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Manhattan native Cole Anthony should have plenty of motivation to face the Knicks at the Garden in a Martin Luther King Day matinee.

Knicks facing grueling stretch in schedule

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — Mired in a five-game losing streak, the Knicks can’t look to their schedule for any help.

Frank Ntilikina’s Knicks return remains up in air

NY Post (Marc Berman) — While Alec Burks appears to be getting closer to a return for the Knicks, Frank Ntilikina does not.
