NEW YORK -- Fresh off leading the Boston Celtics in scoring for the third straight game, Jordan Crawford was asked if he took any additional satisfaction in Sunday's performance against the New York Knicks given his limited playoff role with the team last season. "No," said Crawford. "If it was my choice, I would have played last year." Maybe no player has been more of a revelation this season than Crawford, who found an opportunity playing first-unit point guard as Rajon Rondo rehabs from ACL surgery and has used it to cement himself as one of Boston's key contributors this season.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams will not play in Thursday night’s rivalry game against the New York Knicks at the Barclays Center because of a sprained left ankle. He had been listed as doubtful. Williams will miss his eighth straight game thanks to the injury and 10th game overall. There is no timetable for his return. He originally hurt his ankle Nov. 15 in Phoenix, which caused him to miss two games. He returned Nov.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Last season, Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd got a chance to see what one of his current players, Alan Anderson, could do first-hand. While he was playing with the Toronto Raptors, Anderson scored a career-high 35 points against Kidd’s New York Knicks on March 22. Now, Anderson is starting for Kidd’s Nets due to a hand injury that could cause Paul Pierce to miss a month of action. “He’s a guy that brings a lot to the table,” said Kidd, who wanted team brass to sign Anderson this offseason.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Nets won't have Deron Williams on Tuesday night against Denver to ease the sting of losing Paul Pierce to a fractured hand. And they may have to also face the Knicks on Thursday without their starting point guard. Williams (ankle) will miss his seventh straight game with a left ankle injury and Jason Kidd could either start Tyshawn Taylor or Shaun Livingston against the Nuggets. Kidd started Taylor in the Nets' last game, a win over Memphis.
DENVER -- Some New York Knicks fans were disappointed when center Timofey Mozgov was included as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade in Feb. 2011. The 7-foot-1 Russian has done nothing to make the Knicks regret his inclusion, though, mostly toiling on the end of the Nuggets' bench. Mozgov has seen an increase in action of late, though, with Denver starting center JaVale McGee shelved with a leg injury. Mozgov entered Friday night’s game against the Knicks averaging 8.
The Bulls have lost former MVP Derrick Rose to another season-ending knee injury. It's tough to take, but plenty of other NBA teams have endured some rotten luck. Some bounced back, other didn't. Here's a list of bad luck NBA teams of the past 30 years: 1984 Portland Trail Blazers Bad luck: Chose injury-prone Sam Bowie instead of Michael Jordan in ’84 draft. Outcome: Reached Finals in ’90 and ’92, but no titles. 1984-85 New York Knicks Bad luck: After averaging 32.9 points, Bernard King played in just 6 games over the next two seasons because of knee injuries. Outcome: Won the first...
Many aspects of the Knicks' awful start have been discussed and dissected already. Ball movement, poor defense and injuries have all been offered up as reasons the Knicks (3-11) are struggling. But one often overlooked factor has been the play of J.R. Smith. J.R. Smith #8 SGNew York Knicks 2014 STATS GM9 PPG11.8 RPG4.4 APG1.8 FG%.322 FT%.591 New York isn't getting much from the reigning Sixth Man of the Year right now. He may be working off the rust from offseason knee surgery.
Here are a few observations from the first half of the Knicks-Clippers game. Ball's moving: Amar'e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert complained that the Knicks weren't moving the ball after Monday's loss to Portland. The ball seems to be moving well so far against the Clips. The Knicks opened the game with six assists on their first eight shots, and finished the half with 13 assists on 18 makes. Raymond Felton, playing for the first time in five games due to a hip injury, has five assists.
WASHINGTON -- Plenty's going wrong for the Knicks right now. The offense is a mess. They can't defend point guards. And they're struggling to deal with injuries. After Saturday's loss to Washington, Carmelo Anthony pointed out another factor in the Knicks' slow start: Mike Woodson's rotations. Anthony said Woodson's "still searching" for the optimal rotations and lineups for his team. The Knicks (3-8) have used five different starting lineups in the first 12 games.
If the Knicks fall behind by double digits in the second half at home on Wednesday, there's a good chance that a small, vocal section of fans at the Garden will start a "Fire Woodson!" chant. Should Knicks owner James Dolan follow their advice? I don't think so. There are too many factors here that are out of Woodson's control. Let's start with the injuries. Metta World Peace, one of the team's top defenders, is hurt. Raymond Felton, the key to ball movement and offensive balance for the Knicks, has been banged up for the entire season.
Knicks forward Metta World Peace sat out of Saturday's game with what the team called a sore left knee. Metta World Peace #51 SFNew York Knicks 2014 STATS GM8 PPG9.4 RPG3.5 APG0.9 FG%.425 FT%.714 It is unclear when World Peace, 34, first suffered the injury. The Knicks announced that World Peace would be inactive about an hour before Saturday's game. With World Peace out, Kenyon Martin figures to play more minutes. Chris Smith, J.
An MRI performed on Rockets center Greg Smith’s right knee on Friday was negative, confirming the original diagnosis of a sprained knee. Smith played just 40 seconds in the second quarter on Thursday before he had to be helped off the court after landing awkwardly while defending a drive by the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony. X-rays [...]
Three things to watch for when the Rockets face the Nuggets: 1. Please, Mr. Post man: Rockets center Dwight Howard goes against a second-consecutive team with its starting center out with an injury. Like the Knicks’ Tyson Chandler, the Nuggets’ Javale McGee is out, making J.J. Hickson an undersized starting center. Howard made just 1 [...]
Injured New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler talks to the media about his injury and gives his advice on what the Knicks should do while he is absent from the roster.
Mike Francesa is joined by Knicks radio analyst Brendan Brown to break down the Knicks' injury woes and struggling defense.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- How's this for irony? Former Knicks great Patrick Ewing, who was passed over several times for assistant and head coaching jobs by New York, may make his head coaching debut against the organization on Friday. Charlotte head coach Steve Clifford was admitted to the hospital late Thursday night because he wasn't feeling well. His status for Friday's game is uncertain. If Clifford can't coach, Ewing, the Bobcats' associate head coach, will take the reigns.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Knicks aren't planning to add a big man via free agency or a trade in the wake of Tyson Chandler's injury. Knicks head coach Mike Woodson huddled with team president and GM Steve Mills and assistant GM Allan Houston on Thursday but decided against a roster move. "We’re going to stay where we are," Woodson said, adding, "right now bigs, they’re scarce. It’s hard to find them. If you guys know of any let me know because they’re hard to find.
Sometime on Thursday, Mike Woodson sat down with Knicks president/GM Steve Mills and assistant GM Alan Houston to discuss the possibility of adding a big man to the roster in the wake of the Tyson Chandler injury. The Knicks probably fielded several calls from teams desperate to dump an underperforming big man. They also probably made a list of potential free agents available. One player they have already reached out to is Lou Amundson, sources told ESPNNewYork.
Here are a few things to keep an eye on during Friday's game against the Bobcats: Can Melo help right the ship? With Tyson Chandler expected to be out 4-6 weeks with a fractured right fibula, the Knicks will likely need to outscore people to win games. That means they'll need more from Carmelo Anthony. Anthony is shooting just 37 percent in the first four games of the season. He's coming off of a 10-for-28 night against the Bobcats. Could his shoulder injury be an issue?
Former Knicks great Patrick Ewing, who was passed over several times for assistant and head coaching jobs by New York, will make his head coaching debut against the organization on Friday. Charlotte head coach Steve Clifford was admitted to the hospital late Thursday night due to chest pain. The Bobcats say that after testing this morning, doctors concluded that a procedure was necessary to place two stents in his heart. He is resting comfortably and is expected to re-join the team soon.
Tyson Chandler hobbled out of the Knicks' locker room on crutches and took a seat next to their practice court on Thursday. But the All-Star center expressed "relief" that his right-leg injury is not more serious — and "hope" that he will return on the "shorter length" of his estimated timeframe of 4-to-6 weeks.
Just how important is Tyson Chandler to the Knicks? That question may be answered over the next few days. Chandler suffered a right knee injury against the Bobcats on Tuesday night. X-rays were inconclusive, and the Knicks say they will have a better idea of Chandler's injury on Wednesday. A league source with knowledge of the injury says the Knicks think Chandler may have suffered a knee sprain. If he is forced to miss time, New York could be in serious trouble on defense.
WHAT IT MEANS: The Knicks dropped an ugly game to the lowly Bobcats on Tuesday night, but that may not have been their most costly loss of the night. Tyson Chandler left the game against Charlotte in the first quarter with an apparent knee injury. The team says X-rays on Chandler were inconclusive. He will be diagnosed after further evaluation on Wednesday. Chandler is arguably the second-most important Knick behind Carmelo Anthony, so New York can't afford to lose him for a significant amount of time.
Things went from bad to worse for the Knicks on Wednesday morning. A little more than 12 hours after losing to the Bobcats to fall to 1-3, the team discovered it will likely be without Tyson Chandler for 4-6 weeks due to a small non-displaced fracture in the big man's right fibula. Here's what Chandler's injury means for the Knicks: Does the defense rest? It goes without saying that Chandler is the backbone of the Knicks' defense. For some perspective, here's a stat: In 106 minutes with Chandler on the court, the Knicks had allowed 92.
This might be a good time to close off the Chase Bridges at the Garden to prevent jumpers, starting with the Knicks’ owner himself. Jim Dolan has a whole lot more to worry about than his Knicks City Dancers after his team fell to 1-3 after a horrible night of defense and a 102-97 loss Tuesday to the lowly Charlotte Bobcats.
