Baron Davis suffered a dislocated right patella in the third quarter of the Knicks' 89-87 Game 4 win over Miami.
With Davis out for the season, the need for Jeremy Lin to return has increased.
Mike Woodson said no determination has been made on Lin's status.
"He'll get back into the gym (Monday) talk to the doctors about where he is physically," Woodson said. "We'll make some decisions before we get on the plane and head to Miami.”
Lin returned to practice last week.
"It was nice seeing him run up and down (Thursday) but it's a little different when you're talking about playing playoff basketball and you've got to push and hold and cut and defend guys that are coming at you full speed," Woodson said on Thursday. "We've just got to wait it out and see where we are with him."
