He sat out Tuesday’s practice, but might play Wednesday.

Courtney Lee has been on the minds of many folks surrounding the organization recently, what with head coach Jeff Hornacek asking him to shoot more and all. But how the hell is Lee supposed to shoot more with an injured wrist?

Ah fudge, the Knicks’ starting shooting guard missed Tuesday’s practice with a wrist injury. Not to fear, though...Hornacek expects him to play Wednesday against the Hawks.

Justin Holiday is a quality backup, but you’d really rather have both him and Lee playing big minutes. Hopefully this wrist problem doesn’t hamper Lee’s shooting, as he’s hitting a staggering 46.7% of his threes on the season.

If Lee can’t go, who will shoot his jumpers? Maybe Joakim Noah!

...or maybe Ron Baker, the Shot Maker:

...or we could just let Kristaps Porzingis launch shots from half court:

Yeah, that’s my jam.

The Knicks have two winnable games coming up — at Atlanta, at New Orleans — but have struggled mightily on the road this season. Let’s hope the team remains at full strength.
