The New York Knicks finished off the road Monday with a 129-119 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Paycom Center. They’ve had well-deserved rest over the next few days until they return to Madison Square Garden for their Black Friday matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers.

That’s not good news for the orange and blue family, though. Mostly due to injuries to Derrick Rose and Cam Reddish during a positive 3-2 trip.

Mitchell Robinson seemed ready to go the opposite way, in fact he returned to the court against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday… Mitch left the game against OKC for the second game in a row after experiencing right knee soreness. He was taken out of the game in the fourth quarter.

Robinson has missed all games played since November 4th. After the away game against Phoenix, Robinson treated his knee and scored his first 17 minutes after returning, saying he was “going to be fine” and that he “needed to get back”. shape, conditioning.” The comment came after an outing in which Mitch finished with 2 points, 4 boards and 2 swatting shots.

It was a rather bad basketball night for someone who rules the paint too much. Robinson shared some rather worrisome comments about the mid-outing to justify the fact that he had braces on his knees.

“I know [the brace] It’s there,” said Robinson. “My mind is constantly thinking about it instead of playing. so i think [have to] Find a way to go with it.” As a professional basketball player with many years of experience, it’s kind of surprising to talk about accessories that way. Robinson also said, “It’s there to some degree. I know it’s there. Of course I don’t want to get hurt again.”

After Monday’s game, manager Tom Thibodeau also said Robinson’s absence was due to “a little sickness” and was “to be expected”.

“It will be a daily task. [Tuesday] It will be a great day for recovery and rehabilitation. But he is coming along.” We’re still waiting for an update on Robinson’s knee and his condition ahead of Friday’s game at home to host Portland.

Derrick Rose did not play Monday after suffering an injury (right toe sore) at Phoenix on Sunday. Miles McBride totaled 29 minutes between the two matches a few days ago and yesterday. back set.

Cam Reddish has sat out the last two games after suffering a groin injury. In his last few matches he has been labeled “daily”, but has not recovered in time, leaving his court away from home.

Reddish said Friday’s injury was “almost as painless” as the one he suffered in 2019 while playing college basketball for Duke, and should return soon. “I couldn’t walk when it tore,” he said of his 2019 injury. “I’m fine now.”
