Tom Thibodeau said that Immanuel Quickley will continue to have an important role on the team whether or not he starts for the New York Knicks.

"Because someone doesn’t start, that’s really not that important to me ... we’re always looking at different lineups and what works best and how guys complement each other. So, he’s going to have a significant role. But we’re going to need everyone," said Thibodeau following the Knicks' 102-81 win over the Cavs on Friday night.

Quickley finished the game with 25 points and 5 rebounds in just under 25 minutes.

Quickley added that he's focused on helping the team win while coming off the bench. 

“When I come into the game, just giving energy, playing my game which is playing hard, being unselfish, being aggressive when I have to, playing defense and really just doing whatever the team needs me to do to get wins."
