New York Knicks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (bruised left thigh) practiced on Sunday and said he hopes to play versus the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday. What It Means: Porzingis sat out Thursday's game with the thigh injury but seems optimistic that he will be able to give it a go on Monday night. If he does, Willy Hernangomez and Lance Thomas will take hits to their playing time. Porzingis is averaging 18.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game this season. Source: Rotoworld.com

Spurs 106, Knicks 98: Scenes from a magnificent third quarter from Willy Hernangomez

This game was mostly trash, but there was some surprising contributors. Yo, what the hell was that game? The Knicks were well on their way to another comfortable 20-point loss in San Antonio when Willy Hernangomez and Derrick Rose absolutely caught fire. Big Willy Style scored 13 points in the third quarter as the Knicks stomped the Spurs, 31-17. 3Q from the road squad. @willyhg94 with 13 of his 22 in the quarter! #NYKvsSAS #Knicks pic.twitter.com/9c6xLQ269z— NEW YORK KNICKS (@nyknicks) March 26, 2017 Suddenly a massive Spurs lead was down to as few as 4 points.

This Week in Knicks Social Media: The trials and tribulations of Willy Hernangomez’s haircut

Hair, Fur, and a little Lithuanian Soundtrack Greetings, Earthlings. This week is a quick buzz as we follow the saga of Willy Hernangomez’s haircut. Willy himself begins: W. Hernangomez IG Watch out for those scissors, Willy! Maybe this isn’t a great idea? W. Hernangomez IG Worried Uh oh, visitors. Not good. W. Hernangomez IG Here comes trouble? You’d be a little nervous too, admit it. W. Hernangomez IG Whatcha eating, Melo? But betrayal comes from where you least expect it. Or...

Willy Hernangomez fills up the stat-sheet as the Knicks top the Pacers

New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez posted 13 points, 16 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and 1 block in 31 minutes of action as the Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers 87-81 on Tuesday. What It Means: Hernangomez came off the bench in this one as an adjustment for the matchup, after starting the Knicks previous three games, but he ended up playing a huge role anyway when Kristaps Porzingis went down with a leg injury. Hernangomez has averaged nearly a double-double in 10 games over the past month, with 10.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in 25.1 minutes per...

Game Thread: Knicks at Nets- 03/12/17

Giving ends to my friends, and it feels stupendous. The New York Knicks will take on the Brooklyn Nets in a game that is going to take place between two professional basketball teams. Technically. It’s Biggie Night at Barclays Center. I must insist the Knicks play Chasson Randle, Ron Baker, Mindaugas Kuzminskas (or Justin Holiday), Willy Hernangomez and Kristaps Porzingis together and call them Junior M.A.F.I.A. Game is at 6:00 PM on on MSG. This is NetsDaily. No trolling them, please. Please don’t post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in this thread. Be nice to one...

Willy Hernangomez starting for Knicks, Lance Thomas to bench

New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez will start and guard/forward Lance Thomas will move to the bench against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. What It Means: Head coach Jeff Hornacek said he wants to develop chemistry between Hernangomez and Kristaps Porzingis. The additional size up front should bode well against Milwaukee's length. Hernangomez is worth holding in most formats. numberFire's models project Hernangomez for 8.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 20.4 minutes on Wednesday night. Source: Rotoworld.com

Knicks practice notes: Willy Hernangomez practiced with team, still questionable for Sunday

Cross your fingers. The New York Knicks held practice Saturday ahead of tomorrow’s “Battle of the Super Teams” against the Golden State Warriors. Both squads are missing transcendent superstars at the moment — Kevin Durant definitely won’t play for the Warriors, and Willy Hernangomez has missed the past few games with an ankle sprain. The good news for Knicks fans is that Willy ran through at least some of Saturday’s practice with his teammates. Willy Hernangomez went through portions of practice today and is questionable for tomorrow's game vs Golden State.— Ian Begley...

Willy Hernangomez (ankle) expects to play Sunday in New York

New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez (ankle) practiced on Saturday and said that he expects to play Sunday against the Golden State Warriors. What It Means: Hernangomez is still officially questionable, but the fact that he went through practice on Saturday is a good sign. He could regain his role as the team's starting center in what should be a big crowd at Madison Square Garden to see the Warriors play in New York. Our models project Hernangomez for 6.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 0.9 assists over 14.2 minutes against the Warriors. Source: Rotoworld.com

Game Thread: Knicks at 76ers- 03/03/17

The Knicks are playing well, which is... The Knicks’ tank has run into a bit of a rough stretch of late, as the team has won two of its last four games. Unacceptable! They could win two games in a row for the first time since December if they can handle the 76ers in Philadelphia Friday night. Willy Hernangomez is out once again, and Kristaps Porzingis will start at center. Tip-off is at 7:00 on MSG. This is your game thread. This is Liberty Ballers.

New York's Willy Hernangomez (ankle) will not play Friday

New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez (ankle) will not play Friday against the Philadelphia 76ers. What It Means: Hernangomez will be out for his second straight game, so look for Lance Thomas to draw the start as Kristaps Porzingis moves over to center. Both are solid DFS options on Friday. Carmelo Anthony could also see an increase in minutes. Our models project Anthony to be the top-scoring fantasy player from the Knicks tonight with 25.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.0 steals over 37.9 minutes against the Sixers.

Knicks' Kyle O'Quinn to start with Willy Hernangomez (ankle) out on Wednesday

New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez (ankle) will not play on Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic. What It Means: This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as Hernangomez was listed as doubtful after missing Tuesday's practice. Kyle O'Quinn will draw the start in his place, and Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) will also likely be forced into a big workload in his return to the lineup. Our models project O'Quinn for 12.1 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.5 blocks in 27.6 minutes of action on Wednesday. Source: Rotoworld.com

Knicks practice notes: Willy Hernangomez has ankle sprain, but starting center spot is his to lose

It happened Monday against the Raptors. The New York Knicks practiced Tuesday in the lead-up to Wednesday night’s showdown with the Orlando Magic. (Very important to the tank, FYI). Recently-acquired Chasson Randle got some time to work with the offense, so hopefully he’ll get some playing time. Let’s start with the good news: Kristaps Porzingis is likely to play after missing the past few games with a Sadly, best buddy Willy Hernangomez, will sit out due to the ankle injury he suffered Monday against Toronto, per Ian Begley: Willy Hernangomez is unlikely to play against Orlando...
