Knicks practice notes: Allonzo Trier to return Tuesday, Mitchell Robinson progressing

Plus: Knox and the King

NBA: Brooklyn Nets at New York Knicks Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks have a nice little three-day weekend before they face the mighty Milwaukee Bucks on Christmas Day. Rookie guard Allonzo Trier, who has missed the last few games with a hamstring strain, practiced this weekend and will be available to play Tuesday.

Huzzah! The Knicks have missed Trier, who has been their most reliable scorer on the unit, averaging 11.3 points per game. Still, head coach David Fizdale is going to ease Trier back into the action, according to Steve Iseman:

“Super careful,” Fizdale said. ”Hamstrings are one of the most delicate injuries at least that I’ve seen in basketball. When a guy pulls that hammy, if he goes too hard on it after he comes back he goes right back and sometimes worse. We’ve got to be mindful of that.”

That’s swell and all, but what about the Knicks’ other injured rook. Sadly, center Mitchell Robinson is going to need more time to heal his sprained ankle.

The Knicks will head out of town for a six-game road trip following Tuesday’s contest, and Mitchell will apparently join them. Cool. That will be a back-breaking trip, so it’ll be nice to get some good news amidst all the blowout losses.

Hey, would you like to see Kevin Knox hanging out with franchise legend Bernard King? Of course you would.

Yeah, that’s extremely my jam.
