The New York Knicks have been eliminated from postseason contention and will take advantage to rest some banged up players down the stretch. With Julius Randle hurting, it looks like the Knicks will shut him down for the rest of the season.
Randle has been battling a sore quad for a couple of weeks now. With New York having nothing to play for, Tom Thibodeau said Randle is "most likely out of the rest of the way".
After an All-Star season last year, Randle struggled to find the same momentum this campaign. He dropped to just 41% shooting overall and 31% from behind the arc, after hitting 46% and 41% last season. Randle's counting stats all fell off this season, as well.
