The 3-point threat is likely to finally make his Knicks debut in Wednesday night’s home game against the Trail Blazers after undergoing spinal fusion surgery soon after signing as a free agent in July. “I’m very excited. The injury is something that’s behind me. I’m no longer talking about it anymore. I’m just focused on basketball and being back here with my team,” said Bullock, who also had to deal with the tragic shooting death of his sister in Baltimore in November. “The Knicks have done a great job of helping me out through the whole thing, with my family situations and everything.

Bullock is rehabbing from spinal fusion surgery. The Post quoted medical experts stating rehab from such a surgery can take up to six months, which would put Bullock’s return date at January. “We told him (Smith) take as much time,” Fizdale said. “He and Reggie both. It’s just a really sad situation for both our guys. We’re just going to try to make sure we can do anything we can for them and their families and support them any way we can… This is the second time this has happened to his family, he’s lost a sister to this stuff. Hopefully he can come back and feel love from everybody.”

Kevin Durant to still serve as All-Star captain

It remained unclear whether Durant will travel to Atlanta for the game on March 7.
A Knicks official said Rivers was at the Garden, but in the back getting treatment for a sore ankle. Rivers was not listed on the pregame injury report submitted to the NBA. On the box score, Rivers was listed with a DNP-Coach’s Decision. Earlier this week, Rivers said of his situation: “I can’t control if I’m traded today, tomorrow or the next day. What I can control is how I am as a player.’’
Storyline: Austin Rivers Trade?
That doesn’t mean he’s a finished product. There’s a reason the Raptors signed him with G League intentions and not for the NBA roster. The 10-day contract (about $82,000) affords them six games to see how he can fit and progress in their environment. It’s an audition by another name, and not the first time the Raptors have used a 10-day to get a 905 look at a prospect. “This gives us a chance to get Donta down in our system, teach him our ins and outs and the way we operate our offence, our defence, our schemes, and see how he looks running those,” general manager Chad Sanders said. “With Tampa just down the street, it’s a chance for us to get him out there and get some reps and get a chance to evaluate him for the big club.”
