RJ Barrett remains out Friday vs. Bucks due to sore left knee

Here is the latest news and possible return dates for Knicks players…

Nov. 3, 6:00 p.m.

RJ Barrett has been ruled out for Friday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks due to left knee soreness.

This is the second straight game that the power forward will miss with the injury, and head coach Tom Thibodeau says he remains day-to-day.

As he did on Wednesday night against the Cavs, Josh Hart will take Barrett’s place in the starting lineup.

Prior to the injury, Barrett was averaging a team-high 22.0 points to go along with 2.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds over the first four games of the season.

Nov. 1, 7:10 p.m.

The Knicks announced prior to Wednesday’s tip against the Cleveland Cavaliers that RJ Barrett will miss the game with what the team is calling a sore left knee.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said that Barrett was a game-time decision after he experienced some soreness in his knee. Barrett played 25 minutes in Tuesday’s win against the Cavs, going 5-for-13 with 16 points and three rebounds.

Barrett was entering Wednesday’s game with 4984 career points. He’ll have to wait until the Knicks’ next game, Friday against the Milwaukee Bucks, to potentially reach the 5000-point plateau.

Oct. 18, 6:00 p.m.

Immanuel Quickley will miss the Knicks preseason finale Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards, Tom Thibodeau announced.

The guard is “nicked up just a little bit,” the head coach said. This is the second straight game Quickley has missed after sitting out Tuesday night’s defeat at Boston.

The Knicks will open the regular season on Wednesday, Oct. 25 at Madison Square Garden against the Celtics.

Oct. 13, 2:28 p.m.

There has been some mystery surrounding Josh Hart after he did not appear in the preseason opener and head coach Tom Thibodeau admitted on Friday that the forward is indeed “nicked up,”  but stopped short of categorizing it as an injury.

“[He’s] nicked up a little bit, but not anything lingering or anything like that,” he said. “Just want to make sure we take care of that stuff now so he’s not carrying it into the season.”

As far as playing in Saturday’s preseason game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Thibodeau said, “We’ll see how he responds…just taking it day-by-day. … but I think he’s moving pretty good. We’ll see tomorrow. I think he’ll play a little bit.”
