Kevin Knox will likely only miss one more week
Kevin Knox Sr., the father of New York Knicks rookie Kevin Knox spoke with the New York Post and revealed when his son is expected to return from a sprained ankle that he suffered against the Brooklyn Nets
Despite the fact that the Knicks haven’t revealed when Knox is expected to return, Knox Sr. says that he should be back between November 2-10.
The teams that the Knicks are playing between the 2nd and 10th are the Dallas Mavericks, Washington Wizards, Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks and Toronto Raptors. Between now and then they have to face the Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers.
It was a shame to see Knox go down with an injury after looking so good against the Nets since he had struggled for the first few games of the season.
Knox Sr. says he helped get his son back on track with his shooting.
“I saw couple of things and we fixed it,’’ Kevin Knox Sr. told The Post on Saturday from his home in Tampa, Fla. “That night we were shooting, working on the fundamentals.
“He came out against the Nets and everybody in the whole world saw he had a better game. Truly in my heart, if he didn’t sprain the ankle, he would’ve gone on to more good games. We got back to the basics. I was the first person to show him [shooting] form. I know what to look for.’’
If Knox continues to shoot well when he gets back on the floor, he will likely earn himself a starting spot.
