2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks @ Raptors

The Knicks head to Toronto for what will be an odd little game, as Emmanuel Mudiay is not with the team yet, KP is out for the season and Enes Kanter is out due to dental surgery. So Luke Kornet is the only other center on the roster other than Kyle O’Quinn. Isiah Hicks is active tonight, so we might actually see the youngsters play. Hicks, Kornet, Dotson, Burke, Frank – let’s hope that they all play a lot tonight and for the rest of this tank-tastic season! Let’s go young Knicks!
