Newsday's Al Iannazzone takes you inside the Knicks.
Jason Kidd returned to practice with the Knicks on Friday and said he’s hoping to play next week when the team hits the road.
Kidd (back spasms) will miss his third straight game tonight against 1-12 Washington and seems out for Sunday’s game against Phoenix.
The Knicks begin a three-day road trip Wednesday in Charlotte that also takes them to Miami and Chicago in a four-day span.
“I...Read more »
Jason Kidd didn’t make the trip to Milwaukee.
The lower back spasms that kept him out of Monday’s overtime loss to the Nets will keep him out of tomorrow’s game against the Bucks. The Knicks are listing him as day-to-day.
Ronnie Brewer, however, is expected to play.
Brewer dislocated his left ring finger in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter against the Nets. It’s his non-shooting...Read more »
HOUSTON -- Mike Woodson addressed the Knicks’ decision not to match Jeremy Lin’s contract offer from the Rockets for the first time Friday, and said it wasn’t a hard call.
“That’s a business decision,” Woodson said after the morning shootaround. “I don’t think it was difficult. We just decided to go in a different direction, based on the guys I thought I liked in terms of Raymond [Felton],...Read more »
Jason Kidd had a bandage on the right side of his head, where he needed seven stitches to close a cut from Lance Stephenson’s teeth in Sunday's 88-76 win over the Pacers.
You read that right.
Kidd made a patented pump-fake on the perimeter that got Stephenson into the air and he hit the Knicks point guard. We’ll let Kidd describe what happened.
“It was just a pump fake and he left...Read more »
Rick Carlisle was impressed with what he saw from the Knicks, and continues to be impressed with Jason Kidd.
After his Mavericks lost last night at The Garden, Carlisle said the Knicks look like a team that could contend for an NBA title.
“They are a very good team," Carlisle said. "In my opinion, they are one of a handful of teams in the East that has a chance to come out...Read more »
Mike Woodson said yesterday the Knicks were “kicking around” the idea of making a change in the starting lineup. Then this morning Woodson said the Knicks would “probably go,” with the same starting five against the Mavericks. But …
“It could change before game time based on who they start,” Woodson said. “So we'll see.”
If the Mavericks start Elton Brand – who didn’t play in Dallas’...Read more »
Having Jason Kidd, J.R. Smith, Marcus Camby, Steve Novak, Iman Shumpert (when healthy), Rasheed Wallace and Kurt Thomas means you have depth and the already injury-plagued Knicks may need it.
Letting Jeremy Lin go wasn’t a popular decision, but the Knicks improved at point guard with more polished and respected players Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd and Pablo...Read more »
And so it begins.
Amar’e Stoudemire’s injury has opened up the possibility to Mike Woodson playing different lineups depending on the match-ups.
This is not the ideal situation because you want to have the same starting five as much as possible.
But take tonight for example.
The Knicks could start Raymond Felton, Ronnie Brewer, Tyson Chandler, Kurt Thomas and Carmelo Anthony...Read more »
This didn’t feel like a preseason game from the very beginning. The Knicks and the Celtics played an intense game that featured both benches standing down the stretch, screaming things at each other and urging on their teammates.
Kevin Garnett really was the catalyst for that. Garnett was up screaming, 'Here we come,” after back-to-back Celtics’ baskets late in the Knicks’ 98-95 overtime win....Read more »
The Knicks got off to a good start in their preseason debut – literally.
They scored 38 first-quarter points and after squandering, a 17-point lead beat the Wizards 108-101 last night.
Both teams are banged up and with all due respect to the Wizards they could be one of the worst teams in the league, but what you look for in the preseason is how guys play together, what units work, whether...Read more »
