New York’s current starting point guard, Jarrett Jack, is the only Knick on a non-guaranteed deal. His contract will become guaranteed if he’s not cut by Jan. 7 because it takes a full 48 hours to clear waivers (the guarantee date is technically Jan. 10). Among the other 14 players on the roster, point guard Ramon Sessions would be the most likely waiver-wire candidate given his small contract and lack of playing time.

Now that Tim Hardaway Jr. is healthy and back playing, he wants to help the Knicks reach the playoffs.

Anything less than that to me isn’t a good season. I want to go out there and do whatever I can on my behalf and my part to help the team win.”
Josh Lewenberg: Some big pre-game news from @Twolves_PR: Wolves will be without Jimmy Butler (and Jamal Crawford) tonight. Robs us of what would have been a fun DeMar/Jimmy matchup but Raptors catch a bit of a break on 2nd night of a b2b. Butler’s having a great season.
