The Knicks didn't just lose in the basketball points game Thursday night; they also lost in the not suffering trauma to important basketball-playing parts of their bodies game. Pablo Prigioni was already taking another day to rest his mending toe, Tyson Chandler still looked mucous-logged, and a couple more friends went down with injuries.
First, Kenyon Martin suffered his semi-regular ankle sprain. Later, Amar'e Stoudemire landed on someone's foot and went down with an ankle sprain of his own. Then Tim Hardaway Jr. took a tumble and landed on the left wrist that had bothered him over the summer. Updates on all three from last night:
Woodson says Martin will probably be out a few games. Expects that Stoudemire will probably miss time, too, with his ankle injury.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) January 17, 2014
Stoudemire: "I'm not sure. Gonna reevaluate it tomorrow." X-rays were negative, but swelling is pretty intense. Said ankle was throbbing.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) January 17, 2014
Knicks make it official - left wrist x-rays negative on Tim Hardaway Jr. He says he's playing tomorrow.— Steve Popper (@StevePopper) January 17, 2014
So if Martin and Stoudemire are both out and Chandler is still playing short stints... TYLER TIME TYLER TIME TYLER TIME TYLER TIME TYLER TIME
Let Jeremy Tyler spin. For real. None of this garbage time nonsense. The brokedown Knicks may or may not put up a fight against the Clippers in a SEGABABA. Let's at least have some fun and let the kid try some dunkings. Let him run with Toure' Murry, too. Please, Knicks. I beg you. You can lose, but please don't slide back into monotony.
