CBS Sports: Knicks’ Derrick Rose: Remains sidelined Thursday

The report is: Rose (COVID-19 protocols) will not play Thursday against the Bucks.

From Yaron Weitzman (not a Knick beat guy, interestingly, so it’s almost a certainy that someone in the Knicks front office approached him to do a story on the Knicks.

2020-21 Game Thread: Winning Record Knicks @ Spurs

The Knicks travel to San Anyonio to take on the Spurs, in a good test of their recent strong play. Luckily, the Spurs lost an overtime game last night, so hopefully they are tired. Rose is out due to COVID protocols, so Frank is starting. Good for him. This would be a huge win. Let’s […]
