New York Knicks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) is a game-time call on Monday against the Atlanta Hawks. What It Means: The Knicks are pretty thin at forward with the injury to Lance Thomas, but Porzingis said he felt good during shootaround, so it looks like he is trending towards playing. We should know more before the game, but as long as he doesn't have any setbacks, he looks ready to go. If he plays, our models project Porzingis for 19.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.9 blocks over 33.4 minutes against the Hawks. Source:...

New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will not play on Sunday versus the Toronto Raptors. What It Means: Porzingis will miss his second straight game and fifth overall with the sore Achilles issue. The Knicks big man was expected to sit out on Sunday with hopes he would be good to go for New York on Monday. Lance Thomas is projected to get the start in Porzingis' place with Carmelo Anthony taking on a larger portion of the offensive responsibility. Thomas has not done much in Porzingis' absence, scoring a total of four points with eight rebounds and four assists...

New York Knicks power forward Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) is expected to miss Friday and Saturday's practices, and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Toronto Raptors. What It Means: Porzingis has been in and out of the lineup with Achilles soreness, missing four games this month, including Thursday's game against the Chicago Bulls. We'll have a better idea on his status for Sunday in the coming days. If Porzingis does manage to suit up on Sunday, our models project him for 19.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.8 blocks in 34.5 minutes of action against the...

Hawks 108, Knicks 107: “Knicks.”

Hawks 108, Knicks 107: “Knicks.”

Fresh off a blowout, New York lost a heart-breaker. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee at Madison Square Garden between New York and Atlanta was an up-and-down affair that ended familiarly for the Knicks: down. A late comeback led to a five-point lead they couldn’t hold, and a last-minute Dennis Schroder three gave the Hawks the win. Jeff Hornacek said he’d shake up the lineup and he did, with Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Ron Baker starting in place of Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) and Courtney Lee (Amenable). What might Horny have been thinking? This. Of the 30 most played lineups in...

Hawks Battle In New York, Beat Knicks 108-107

Hawks Battle In New York, Beat Knicks 108-107

This game went down to the wire, but a Dennis Schröder 3-pointer was the difference. The Hawks won a nail-biter on Monday afternoon, pulling out a 108-107 victory in New York against the Knicks. This was the second game of a back-to-back for both teams, as the Hawks played Milwaukee yesterday and the Knicks played Toronto. Both teams were shorthanded today, as Atlanta was without Dwight Howard, DeAndre’ Bembry, and Mike Muscala. New York played without Kristaps Porzingis, relying on their bench more in this contest. Paul Millsap saw extended time at the center position, as the Hawks...

Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis is ruled out Monday

Updating a previous report, New York Knicks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will not play on Monday against the Hawks. What It Means: The Knicks are pretty thin at forward with the injury to Lance Thomas, but Porzingis said he felt good during shootaround and was supposed to warm up pregame, so this is a bit surprising he has already been ruled out. Carmelo Anthony will once again be very busy, while Joakim Noah and Mindaugas Kuzminskas should see some big minutes. Our models project Anthony for 21.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 0.9 steals over 33.5...

Raptors 116, Knicks 101: Scenes from a leisurely afternoon in Crapville

LOL Knicks you suck. Clyde Frazier, the Bard of Rockin’ Steady, put it best: “This is the worst ever.” The venerable clothes horse has seen his share of Knicks basketball over the years, but Sunday afternoon’s 116-101 loss in Toronto against the Raptors might have been actually been the worst. Lance Thomas, starting in the place of the injured Kristaps Porzingis, got conked in the head by an elbow and had to leave the game after two minutes. Toronto scored 42 points in the second quarter. The Knicks scored 8 points in the third (and had to seriously hustle to get 6 of those points...

Everybody’s being cautious, which is good. The New York Knicks practiced Saturday as they prepare for yet another back-to-back (damn, do they have a lot of back-to-backs this month). Kristaps Porzingis was limited in practice as he recovers from a sore Achilles. He probably won’t play Sunday against Toronto. Kristaps Porzingis was limited in practice today (sore left Achillies).

Timothy John McConnell plays hero for the Sixers against the Knicks.

Kristaps Porzingis will return in Milwaukee

After 3 games to rest a sore Achilles tendon, Kristaps is back: Hornacek says @kporzee participated in shootaround & should be good to go for tonight. They will consider a minutes restriction.— Jonah Ballow (@jonahballow) January 6, 2017 Porzingis has been pushing to get back on the court since the beginning of the week, which makes me feel heartened both that the Knicks are being extra careful with him, and that he’ll play like himself against the Bucks. They’ll need him. Stay healthy, my son.
