The French Embargo has been Lifted: Frank to Start

David Fizdale hasn’t been known as a flip-flopper so much as someone who says what he needs to say if and when it’s convenient, even if the logic behind a new statement contradicts something he said earlier.

(Really though, all coaches do this shit. They just don’t have seven different media outlets, not to mention yahoos like me, covering their team 24/7)

Regardless, most Knick fans couldn’t care less about his latest convenient logic, and are simply teeming with excitement over the fact that Frank Ntilikina getting a start for the New York Knicks.

Morning Knick fans. Lots of news to catch up on.

The Knicks are gearing up for their final preseason game tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans, who will be without Zion Williamson for a period of several weeks, according to a report from Woj late Friday morning. Of course, he’s not the only one who will be missing the game.

Knicks Dinged up for Friday; other PM news

A few Knicks are less than healthy heading into the second half of their home and home with the Wiz:

I’d bet against seeing either DSJ or Knox. In other news, Kentucky coach John Calipari graced the Knicks practice with his presence today, as did former Pistons champ Ben Wallace, who stuck around to work a bit with the New York bigs (Chris Iseman has the writeup here). Finally, Julius Randle was asked about the predictions for the Knicks this season, and he gave a colorful response (I love that he’s quickly becoming known for these):

Morning News Roundup

The biggest story in the NBA is quite clearly what’s going on with China. This may not seem like it directly effects the Knicks, but with so much of the NBA’s current and future revenue tied to China, there’s no team that this doesn’t touch. Speaking of not touching, ESPN isn’t going near this story, unsurprisingly. As for Knicks pieces you may have missed yesterday…

Knicks vs. Wiz pregame Reading

Lots of stuff out there today to get you ready for the Knicks first preseason game in Washington, which we just found out will not include Bobby Portis, who has a contused left rib…

  • Chris Iseman on Fizdale’s starting five, which will include Elfrid Payton and not DSJ, thanks in part to Smith Jr’s back injury which isn’t apparently related to what he dealt with last yearm
  • Mike Vorkunov (if you have a subscription to the Athletic) on how the Knicks offense might look in the year ahead, and
  • Ian Begley with some video of Fiz from earlier today (who looks like he’s in a back alley somewhere), as well as a few good quotes.
  • Finally, Tommy Beer with a game preview for Forbes

There’s probably a few more out there I’m missing. Next time someone tells you the Knicks don’t matter any more, just show them this page and whisper the words “it’s still preseason…”
