    Default [Article] Kurt Could Be Shelved For 2nd Straight Game

    Originally Posted by New York Post
    The Knicks are in danger of playing a second straight game without iron man Kurt Thomas when the Celtics invade the Garden tonight. Thomas sat out Monday's 88-75 win over the Spurs, did not practice yesterday and remains day-to-day with a left elbow bursitis infection.

    "I'm not sure," Knicks head coach Herb Williams said of Thomas' availability tonight. "It's still day-to-day, so we'll see how he feels [today] and then evaluate and go from there."


    Thomas, the Knicks' starting center, is a vital cog on the defensive end and running the pick-and-roll with Stephon Marbury. He was replaced in the starting lineup Monday by Malik Rose, who scored 18 points against San Antonio. But against a dangerous Boston team, Thomas' absence could be felt a little more.


    "He does so much for us on the basketball court as far as pick-and-roll and defense," Marbury said. "Normally you don't have to double-team with him because he knows how to defend on the low block. We miss him in a whole bunch of different ways."

    Yah, that would suck if Kurt didn't play tonight. We need him in so many different ways.

    Why is this in the Site Feedback Forum?

    man does Kurt ever make some wierd faces?? having said that though it doesnt seem to affect his performance , so far he has been very consistent this season in all aspects of his game, however i feel that Malik will do a good job tonight if he does start seeing that Atoine Walker doesnt really like to go inside i dont think we will feel his size too much... He, Sweetney and JYD can hang with LaFrentz, Walker, and Blount, we just need to play consistent on the offensive end and not let them go on a big run..

    He is back tonight in Seattle, he does have a brace on but he seems to look fine. I hope he can keep this up for upcoming games.

    To bad Ray Allen never misses and the refs gave us no calls in the OT session.

    yea, we were forced to shoot from the outside, because when we got the ball inside, and went for some easy hoops, we got hammered but didnt get the calls... and at the other end, when we touched them on the hand on the perimeter its a foul... crazy!!
