FINALLY:Knicks have gain ‘confident’ in their ability to weather injury concerns…

Despite their 4-8 record in February and having OG Anunoby and Julius Randle sidelined due to injuries, the New York Knicks remain optimistic

The New York Knicks remain a top-four team in the Eastern Conference despite a packed injury report. Since OG Anunoby (elbow) and Julius Randle (shoulder) left the lineup, the Knicks are 6-8 after winning 12 of their first 14 in the new year when the former joined the fold after a December trade with Toronto.But the Knicks (35-25) continue to avoid making excuses for their recent swoon, which endured a 110-99 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.We have enough guys,” center Isaiah Hartenstein, who recently missed four games of his own, said in video from SNY. “We’re confident in that until everyone comes back.”Injuries are inevitable in the NBA and the Knicks are dealing with that unfortunate reality. With that in mind, New York is suddenly standing on tenuous ground in he Eastern Conference playoff picture: entering the weekend, the Knicks are only 1.5 games up on Indiana and Miami to avoid the Eastern Conference’s four-team Play-In Tournament. A crucial test awaits on Sunday evening when they face the second-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers (7 p.m. ET, MSG/ESPN).
