Frank Ntilikina’s eventual return gets clearer — and more daunting

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MINNEAPOLIS — The Knicks have ruled out second-year guard Frank Ntilikina for their three-game road trip that began here Sunday night. That means the earliest he will return will be next Sunday’s home game against the Lakers. After evaluating him Saturday, the Knicks announced he would start “controlled contact” this week before the Knicks play...

James Dolan can do a lot more damage than petty fan threats

NY Post (Marc Berman) — A Garden spokesman would not elaborate on whether Saturday’s latest heckler of owner James Dolan would be banned from the Garden — a la Charles Oakley and Mike Hamersky. You remember Hamersky? In April 2017, the lawyer from Queens screamed at Dolan outside the Garden to sell the Knicks. Dolan cursed him out, security got...

David Fizdale can’t put a finger on why Kevin Knox is slumping

NY Post (Peter Botte) — David Fizdale has watched Kevin Knox working every day to climb out of a prolonged rookie slump, but Saturday once again was not the breakout day for the Knicks’ first-round pick. Knox missed nine of 12 shots and scored just seven points in a quiet 23 minutes in a 102-94 loss to the Kings at...

James Dolan threatens to ban fan who tells him to sell Knicks

NY Post (Joseph Staszewski) — James Dolan really doesn’t want to hear the cries for him to sell the Knicks. As Dolan walked away from his courtside seat at Madison Square Garden in the closing minutes of the Knicks’ loss to the Kings on Saturday afternoon, a fan yelled “Sell the team!” at the billionaire owner, as seen in a...

Link to NCAA corruption is no longer Dennis Smith’s problem

NY Post (George Willis) — If Dennis Smith Jr. was bothered by his name once again being linked to the federal case involving corruption in college basketball, he didn’t act like it Saturday afternoon at the Garden. For the first quarter of the Knicks’ noon-start game against the Kings, Smith was the best player on the floor. Smith scored 11...

Drafting Right: De’Aaron Fox torches the Knicks as young star scores 30 in Sacramento's 102-94 win at Garden

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — The Knicks have three point guards on the roster who were drafted in the top-9 since 2015 (Dennis Smith Jr., Emmanuel Mudiay, Frank Ntilikina). The Kings have one — De’Aaron Fox — and he was, by far, the best player on the court Saturday afternoon. Fox punished the Knicks with 30 points and eight...

Knicks lose again as uncertain futures are taking toll

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The Knicks have taken small solace in the rare individual strides a few emerging players have made this season, but coach David Fizdale still hasn’t been able to make as much headway as he’d hoped in implementing a team concept for a squad sporting the worst record in the NBA. With an eye on free...

Allonzo Trier finishing with a strong closing kick

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The Knicks haven’t truly thrived this season in anything other than draft-lottery positioning, so undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier certainly can be counted as a rare success story. Trier, who was slowed by a December hamstring injury, had slumped immediately after converting his two-way contract into a guaranteed deal potentially worth $7 million later that month....

Knicks gets first piece of hope for a Frank Ntilikina return

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Frank Ntilikina finally took part in what the Knicks described as a more active workout on Friday, albeit without fully returning to practice. The second-year guard will be reevaluated by the team’s medical staff on Saturday, but Ntilikina will miss his 18th consecutive game — when the Knicks face the Kings on Saturday — since...

Fizdale's Pain: Team concept goes out the window for Knicks when bulk of roster is going to be playing elsewhere next season

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — The Knicks have been consistently awful at most everything, but one element stands out as their king of putrid – ball movement. Even when hopes were much higher in mid-November, the Knicks were dead-last in the NBA in assists and David Fizdale said that “makes me want to yack, to be honest with...

DeAndre Jordan pushes back on talk about his age

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks center DeAndre Jordan is sensitive about his age and the perception 30 is considered old. In his first game back from a five-game absence with a sprained ankle, Jordan looked like he did in his younger All-NBA days, posting 17 points, 14 rebounds two blocks and going 7-of-8 from the field in Wednesday’s loss...

Draft-night whispers, Kidd hint: Frank Ntilikina’s Knicks and PG future fading

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Even with an endorsement from Dennis Smith Jr., Frank Ntilikina’s point-guard future — and present — has never been more muddled. Mysteriously, Knicks coach David Fizdale continues to shrug off Ntilikina’s extended absence, and it is unlikely he will return to practice Friday as he forever rehabs from a sore groin. “I don’t think they’re...

Knicks prove once again they are the worst team in the NBA

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHOENIX — Knicks coach David Fizdale called this contest a shootout between two teams aching for wins. “Two desperados,’’ Fizdale said before tipoff. “Fighting for crumbs on the table.” The Suns proved not as crummy as the Knicks — faster, more talented, better ball-movers and already with a bust-out star in the fold. Devin Booker...

Suns crush Knicks in tanking bowl

NY Daily News PHOENIX — Devin Booker scored a season-high 41 points and the surging Phoenix Suns rolled to their fourth victory in five games with a 107-96 win over the woeful Knicks on Wednesday night. Booker made 14 of 23 shots, including six of 10 3-pointers, and the Suns (15-51) took over after a slow start...
