The Knicks were reportedly in negotiations with the Detroit Pistons about acquiring Bojan Bogdanović and Alec Burks to further strengthen their playoff position and secure a deeper postseason run. According to Yahoo Sports’ Jake Fischer, the deal has been finalized in exchange for Quentin Grimes, Malachi Flynn, Evan Fournier, Ryan Arcidiacono, and two second-round picks.

Now, as the Knicks strengthen their squad and look to get back on their winning streak once again, Josh Hart shares a cryptic message before their clash against the Mavericks. The 28-year-old guard asked his boys to suit up for tonight’s clash.

The reason Hart said this is because most of the star players on his squad are not going to be a part of the clash due to their respective injuries. Owing to that, he and the others will have to shoulder the responsibility of the team in the absence of the rest. And if they don’t, well, replacements are on their way.

As the Big Apple gets ready to take on the Big D, Julius Randle, OG Anunoby, and Jalen Brunson are being sidelined due to their injury situations.

Julius Randle, the star player of the Knicks this season, has been out for the past five games due to a dislocated shoulder. His absence has created a big hole in the team’s frontcourt since Randle’s scoring, rebounding, and playmaking talents were critical to both attacking and defense tactics.

Even OG Anunoby has been out of action for the last five games due to elbow inflammation which adds to the team’s injury concerns.  And finally, the 27-year-old guard who suffered an ankle sprain against the Memphis Grizzlies, Jalen Brunson is questionable to play the game against the Mavericks.
