New York Knicks Best Player’s Injury Updates…

There isn’t a team in the NBA that needs the All-Star break to come as much as the New York Knicks. Their roster has been hit extremely hard by injuries in recent weeks, as they are down several rotation players.

That has led to some uneven play the last few weeks with the team being short-handed. Healthy guys are playing heavy minutes and that is catching up to them as well. Centers Mitchell Robinson and Isaiah Hartenstein are both out. As are starting forwards OG Anunoby and Julius Randle.

Could Donte DiVincenzo now be joining them on the sidelines? DiVincenzo played 41 minutes against the Houston Rocketsdespite not playing the final 5+ minutes of the game. The only reason he didn’t play those minutes is because he asked out of the game and headed straight to the locker room.

This is the last thing the Knicks need; another injury to navigate. Down four rotation players and attempting to integrate two new players in Alec Burks and Bojan Bogdanovic acquired ahead of the NBA Trade Deadline, New York only has one more game before a much-needed break.

Hopefully, the ailment DiVincenzo is dealing with isn’t a serious one. The Knicks cannot afford to lose him, as he has been an integral part of their rotation, stepping up with his teammates sidelined by injuries.

Monday against the Rockets was the eighth straight game DiVincenzo played 38+ minutes in. The heavy workload is seemingly catching up with him and his teammates, as the Knicks are lacking a lot of key rotation pieces.
