Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said there’s no timetable for Lance Thomas’ return as he battles his way back from an assortment of injuries. Hornacek said, at the earliest, Thomas could be ready Tuesday against Portland but that’s a long shot. Thomas, who missed his third straight game, had his left foot in a walking boot. He has a bone bruise in his left ankle and plantar fasciitis in both feet. “I don’t think we have a timetable on it,’’ Hornacek said. “We’re making sure he’s totally healthy before he comes back. He’s a tough a guy, plays through lot of injuries. He’s gets healthy for a day and wants to be able to play and it’s sore again. We’ll be cautious with him.’’

Thomas, who left the locker room in a walking boot after missing a second straight game, told The Post the sprained ankle he suffered two weeks ago against the Rockets has turned into a bone bruise and he will be evaluated Thursday to determine a timetable. Thomas said he believes his subpar play was mostly due to his array of injuries. He had plantar fasciitis in his left foot over the summer and now has gotten it in the right foot. “I don’t want to be something that keeps me out for too long but when I come back I want to be effective to the team,” Thomas said. “I’ve been playing through the injuries. My teammates know I’ve been trying to do my best.’’
