    Rasheed Wallace hasn’t played a game for the Knicks since mid-December due to a stress fracture that later required surgery, but he may be ready to come back just in time for New York’s trip to the postseason. From Marc Berman of the New York Post: Rasheed Wallace could play for the first time since…

  2. Knicks sign Solomon Jones, not James Singleton

    Apr 12, 2013, 12:21 PM EST

    Solomon Jones

    The Knicks finally realized 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace, 39-year-old Marcus Camby and 40-year-old Kurt Thomas might not hold up for a full season as the team’s backup bigs. After initial reports they would waive Thomas and sign James Singleton, the Knicks will actually do something about their old and injured frontcourt. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:…

  3. Knicks sign James Singleton, will release Kurt Thomas

    UPDATE: April 12, 1 p.m. ET: The deal for James Singleton fell through due to some issue with his being released from his Chinese team, so the Knicks signed Solomon Jones instead. April 10: The Knicks need frontline help, with so many of the veterans they brought in to fill those positions having been lost…

  4. Knicks have strange habit of starting players and then barely playing them

    Mar 27, 2013, 11:03 AM EST

    Mike Woodson, Chris Copeland

    The Knicks, as pointed out by Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal, often start players like James White and Kurt Thomas and then give them very few minutes. Herring uses a couple different benchmarks – five or fewer minutes, fewer than 16 minutes – but, either way, the Knicks lead the league by a…

  5. Damian Lillard talks his fear of historic statues (and other stuff)

    Mar 26, 2013, 11:17 PM EST

    Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook

    Your soon-to-be NBA Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard was on NBC Sports Network’s The Crossover Tuesday (with Michelle Beadle and Dave Briggs, you’ll be able to tell them apart in the video) to talk about his one great weakness — a fear of historical statues. Seriously. Which is odd and interesting but difficult to use…

  6. Carmelo Anthony “probable” for return Wednesday

    Mar 20, 2013, 11:57 AM EST

    Mike Woodson, Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks are getting a healthy body back — that itself almost feels like a miracle. Maybe the Knicks are shipping in the team drinking water from Lourdes. Carmelo Anthony is “probable” for return Wednesday night when the Knicks take on Orlando, the team announced. Anthony missed a couple games with irritation in his knee,…

  7. Knicks injuries pile up: Chandler out week, Thomas 2-4 weeks

    Mar 19, 2013, 2:39 PM EST

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler reacts after drawing a foul and scoring a basket against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Another day, another injured Knick. Or two. Before the season when we all joked about the Knicks old roster, particularly the bench, this was the concern. Old bodies break down more. The Knicks front line was already short with Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony sidelined with knee issues (although Anthony should be back this week…

  8. Carmelo Anthony out, Chandler questionable for Knicks

    Mar 18, 2013, 4:03 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Detroit Pistons - Previews

    Knicks fans, if you want some good news, Carmelo Anthony says his knee feels a lot better, the fluid is drained and he should be pain free when he starts playing again. But that will not be Monday night in Utah. Anthony is out, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News tweets. Carmelo is…

  9. Blake Griffin finishes monster one-handed alley-oop in Clippers’ win over Knicks

    Mar 17, 2013, 10:15 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    We showed you DeAndre Jordan getting loose for a windmill jam on a fast break early in the Clippers’ win over the Knicks, and as it turned out, that was only the beginning of the highlight show. Blake Griffin got his share of dunks along the way, none more exciting than this one-handed throwdowm off…

  10. Knicks will be without Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler Sunday against Clippers

    Mar 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    UPDATE 2:27 p.m. ET: It’s been made official now, a little more than an hour before tip-off, that both Anthony and Chandler are out for Sunday’s contest against the Clippers. Even though Chandler is out, the news on him might be considered to be positive — he’s missing the game due to a stiff neck; the…

  11. Carmelo Anthony out Thursday night against Thunder

    Mar 7, 2013, 7:44 PM EST

    Knicks' Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Hornets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony will miss his second straight game on Thursday due to a sore right knee, Mike Woodson confirmed to reporters before tip-off. The Knicks host the Thunder at Madison Square Garden in a nationally televised contest on TNT. Anthony missed the game against the Pistons on Wednesday for the same reason, one that the…

  12. Carmelo has fluid on knee, will not play Wednesday vs. Pistons

    Mar 6, 2013, 6:32 PM EST

    Mike Woodson, Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 6:32 pm: And what we expected has become official, the Knicks have announced Carmelo Anthony will not play Wednesday night against Detroit, tweets Marc Berman of the New York Post (as well as other media). Will Anthony play against Oklahoma City on Thursday? It’s possible, coach Mike Woodson said. Personally I wouldn’t bet on it,…

  13. After sleepy start, Carmelo, Knicks defense wake up to beat Hornets

    Knicks' Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Hornets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Like you, the New York Knicks were feeling a little lazy on Sunday morning. Sleeping in, needing a little coffee to get going. Except they had some work to do — the New Orleans Hornets were at Madison Square Garden for a noon tipoff game. And after three straight losses the Knicks looked at this…

  14. Marcus Camby to start for Knicks as they go big vs. Spurs

    Jan 3, 2013, 6:32 PM EST

    New York Knicks' Camby gestures while waiting for foul shot by Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in New York

    San Antonio rolls into Madison Square Garden with one of the best front lines nobody is talking about. Well, people are talking about and know who Tim Duncan is because he’s been an efficient machine for 15 years, one of the greatest power forwards to ever play the game. But not a lot of people…

    Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant guards New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    LOS ANGELES — The Lakers beat the Knicks 100-94 on Christmas Day to earn their fifth straight victory, one that came in an intense and competitive game that came down to the final few possessions. Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony each finished with 34 points, J.R. Smith had 25 off the bench for New York,…

    Kevin Durant

    Can you believe it? The NBA season is somehow a third of the way finished, which means it’s probably time to take stock of what we’ve seen so far this year. We’ll give out some awards — ’tis the season and all that — but we’ll also dish out some coal. After all, what are…

  17. Jamal Crawford says he ‘deserved to get booed’ by Blazers fans

    Nov 9, 2012, 12:17 PM EST

    jamal-crawford-blazers-clippers

    Saying last season was a disappointment in Portland is like calling the Titanic a minor boating accident. There isn’t enough hyperbole there to do it justice. The Blazers were a talented team a season ago, but dealt with all kinds of locker room trouble that resulted in a complete dismantling of the club that began…

  18. Marcus Camby to make season debut for Knicks

    Nov 8, 2012, 10:39 PM EST

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    The Knicks haven’t shown any signs of a team struggling to deal with injuries. On the way to a 3-0 start that has New York as the league’s lone remaining undefeated team, the Knicks have allowed an NBA-best 85.3 points per game, and have shown similar success on the defensive end even when adjusting for…

  19. Camby still questionable for opener, Knicks still banged up

    Oct 29, 2012, 9:41 AM EST

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    The Knicks don’t start the season until Thursday, and the good news is they only have to travel to Brooklyn for the game. Although hurricane Sandy may make that a little more difficult than it should be. The question hanging over the Knicks is if Marcus Camby will be ready to play. He has been…

  20. Injuries may force Knicks to turn to Rasheed Wallace

    Oct 27, 2012, 6:30 PM EST

    rasheed wallace knicks

    When news broke that Amar’e Stoudemire might be out longer than expected with a left knee injury, Rasheed Wallace being drafted into action before he appears ready for it certainly was a possibility. With Stoudemire and Marcus Camby definitely out, and Tyson Chandler possibly out for opening night, the Knicks simply don’t have very many…

  21. Amar’e Stoudemire seeks second opinion on knee, may miss first month of the season

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:59 PM EST

    Tristan Thompson, Amare Stoudemire

    When the news broke that Amar’e Stoudemire was experiencing an issue with his left knee, it was supposed to be relatively minor. At the time, it was expected that he’d miss the Knicks season opener, along with maybe another game or two beyond that. It now appears that he’ll be out a little longer, according…

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Four

    The challenge of getting Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire to mesh on offense — to get the Knicks playing well when the two of them and Tyson Chandler are all on the court — remains the key to the entire season on the island of Manhattan. But not the start of the season. With Stoudemire…

  23. Stoudemire has ruptured cyst in knee, to miss start of Knicks’ season

    Oct 21, 2012, 1:14 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day Basketball

    This is not an ideal start to the season in Manhattan. Amar’e Stoudemire will miss the Knicks regular season opener against the Nets, likely followed by another game or two, as he recovers from a minor knee problem. Al Iannazzone, who covers the Knicks for Newsday, broke the story. Amare Stoudemire went home this morning…

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Rasheed Wallace is back in the NBA. Which should be a good test of the NBA’s technical policy if nothing else. He’s had a few other chances to return from retirement the past two years, a number of teams including the Celtics (where he last played) have approached him. He said no. He didn’t want…

  25. Rasheed Wallace finally signs contract, now in Knicks camp

    Oct 3, 2012, 1:54 PM EST

    rasheed_wallace

    It’s now official — Rasheed Wallace is a New York Knick. After missing one day of training camp while his agent and the Knicks argued over whatever (the money was set as a veteran minimum deal of $1.7 million) the two sides worked it out the team announced, and Wallace was at practice for the…
