The Knicks want Kemba Walker to take the time to get well

When’s Kemba Walker back on the floor for the Knicks?

The answer remains unclear. Coach Tom Thibodeau went on to say that his guard is approaching to be able to play, but did not specify when it will be.

Walker missed his ninth game in a row Monday with a sore knee after playing some big minutes as the Knicks’ playlist was depleted due to injuries and COVID-19. Aside from Monday’s game, the starting lineup has looked pretty good without Walker, so Thibodeau can be extra careful when it comes to bringing him back.

“The great thing about Kemba is that I want him to feel as good as possible and a player like him in the situation he is in, I want him to trust where he is with his body , “said Thibodeau. “When he’s ready, he’s ready. He will tell us. We trust him.

“What I do not want [is] to get into a situation where it is on-off, on-off. I want to get to the point where he feels confident and he’s in a good place and a good place and he can go. ”

Mayor Adams gets the audience going

New York Mayor Eric Adams received a slightly mixed reception when he was presented to Knicks fans before the game.

“When the civil rights struggle was at stake, Dr. King wanted the ball in his hand and he gave his life to ensure our country would be a better place,” Adams told the audience in his first MSG appearance. “Let’s win this for Team New York and Team America.”

And with that, the audience broke out in applause.

Bridges maintains an aggressive attitude

Miles Bridges, who scored a career-high 38 points for the Hornets, following his stance as he entered the Garden: “Just stay aggressive. My teammates did a great job of finding me early. Once I saw one or two of they go in., I just kept going. The coach kept trusting that I would drive the offensive through this match and it worked out. “

Robinson flashes the handle

In one of the Knicks’ few highlights, Mitchell Robinson exclaimed a move that fans may not have thought was possible. Starting from a good distance outside the three-point line, the 7-footer used a crossover dribble to get past Mason Plumlee, and when Cody Martin delayed moving to help, Robinson used a Eurostep to get past him before closing his long drive with a dunk.

Robinson has hit 83.7% of his shots from the field (72-for-86) in the last 15 games, but most of them were dunks. It was this one too, but it was also something special.
