The New York Knicks should feel pretty not bad about themselves following a strong Friday night showing against the Clippers. But there are still practices to be practiced, and apparently Saturday's practice included Arron Afflalo, who missed the last two games with a strained abdomen.
Arron Afflalo's status for Sunday's game is uncertain. He is expected to go through a modified practice today.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) March 12, 2016
Not gonna lie: It would be a damn shame to deny Sasha Vujacic the start Sunday against the Lakers and his former teammate Kobe Bryant. Why not sit out a few more games, Afflalo?
The injury update regarding Lance Thomas is not so optimistic:
Rambis saiid "it looks that way" regarding Lance Thomas not playing rest of trip. Sprained knee in pregame warmups in Denver.— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) March 12, 2016
Man, I miss Lance, that wacky bastard. Get well soon, brother.
As for the team itself, interim coach Kurt Rambis believes it has entered it's pupal phase ... soon it shall emerge as a beautiful butterfly:
Kurt Rambis says the Knicks are "almost halfway in-between" implementing his changes and playing the way they were taught in training camp.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) March 12, 2016
Forget Rambis: Let's watch time-lapse photography of a butterfly instead.
