Fizdale utters the worst-case Porzingis scenario for first time

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach David Fizdale acknowledged publicly for the first time the possibility of Kristaps Porzingis not playing this season, calling it an “if and when.” Fizdale said he’s not thinking about Porzingis at this point and not “planning” on a return, couching his remarks that he doesn’t want to lose focus on the current group....

Derrick Rose’s big night gives Knicks hope for Mudiay’s potential

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Five observations from the Knicks’ 112-107 road victory Wednesday over the Hawks at newly named State Farm Arena (formerly Philips Arena). 1. It took ex-Knicks PG Derrick Rose 11 seasons to find his three-point shot. He made a career-high seven Wednesday on nine attempts in Minnesota’s loss to the Lakers. Former Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek...

Derek Fisher: I was doomed from the start with Knicks

NY Post (Mark W. Sanchez) — Looking back on it two and half years later, Derek Fisher wishes he could have seen the signs from the start. Phil Jackson’s first hire as Knicks coach, who lasted a disastrous season and a half before Jackson pulled the plug in February 2016, did not fully understand Jackson’s wishes when he took the job,...

Trey Burke sits as Emmanuel Mudiay gets nod

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ATLANTA — The point-guard carousel kept spinning Wednesday and Trey Burke wound up getting his first DNP since his early days as a Knick last season. The starting point guard to begin the season, Burke didn’t seem too understanding of the snub, though Frank Ntilikina and Emmanuel Mudiay both performed well. The surprising part is...

Tim Hardaway Jr., Frank Ntilikina lead Knicks past Hawks again

Kevin Knox noticed Duke’s stars, and let Knicks’ dreaming begin

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ATLANTA — Playing its first game since Kevin Knox left for the NBA draft, Kentucky got overwhelmed Tuesday by Duke’s freshman power trio — one of whom could be Knox’s teammate next season.

Knicks’ Kevin Knox is ready to go full-out again

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ATLANTA — Knicks rookie lottery pick Kevin Knox hopes to let it rip against the Hawks on Wednesday after being buoyed by Monday’s rousing Garden ovation when he made his long-anticipated return from a left ankle sprain.

The Knicks may have walked into the next John Starks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ATLANTA — The comparisons started during the season opener, when undrafted shooting guard Allonzo Trier threw down a vicious slam on Atlanta’s Taurean Green after sweeping past Hawks rookie Trae Young. Trier gyrated to the crowd and the Garden erupted. MSG Network’s Walt Frazier said the dunk reminded him of another undrafted shooting guard with...

Enes Kanter wants no part of David Fizdale’s consolation prize

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks center Enes Kanter doesn’t want an award. He wants the playoffs. Kanter’s postseason sentiment contradicts coach David Fizdale’s remark last week. Fizdale said the league’s youngest team isn’t “chasing victories” when he boldly moved to start 20-year-old project Mitchell Robinson, who had barely picked up a basketball until he was in 10th grade, over...

Kevin Knox wasted no time making presence felt in return

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie lottery pick Kevin Knox got a big ovation when he checked in with 9:48 left in the first quarter Monday night. Almost immediately he made an impact. Enes Kanter tipped a ball loose and Knox stole it from Antonio Blakeney and glided in for a fast-break dunk with 8:50 to go. That was...

Knicks’ youth movement isn’t making it easy on veterans

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — It is one thing to be asked to buy into a meritocracy. Everything about that seems right. Everything about that seems fair. The best players play. If the best players are being outplayed by their backups on a given night, the subs play. It is an easy system to endorse in theory. It is less...

Questionable foul spoils Knicks rookie’s big night in 2OT loss

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier made his first career start, and after missing his first six shots, he lifted the Knicks in the fourth quarter Monday night against the Bulls.

Kevin Knox is back

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie lottery-pick Kevin Knox is back. Knicks coach David Fizdale wasn’t going to dispute the doctors, so he allowed Knox to play Monday against the Bulls despite not going through a five-on-five scrimmage before his return from an ankle sprain. The doctors cleared Knox anyway to play Monday against the Bulls after missing seven...
