Amid a five-game losing streak, Knicks coach David Fizdale has opted to reshuffle the team's lineup ahead of Tuesday night's game.
Enes Kanter is starting alongside Emmanuel Mudiay, Tim Hardaway Jr., Mario Hezonja, and Noah Vonleh.
Hardaway Jr. and Mudiay are the only two holdovers from the most-recent lineup. Kevin Knox, Mitchell Robinson, and Allonzo Trier started on Sunday.
Fizdale said Robinson was removed from the lineup because he was getting into foul trouble early in games, per Ian Begley of ESPN. Fizdale further said his lineup adjustments are part of his effort to see how various lineups perform, and he intends to stabilize the lineup 20-25 games into the season.
"We're trying to learn," he said, per Begley. "See what they're capable of, what they can handle."
Tuesday's game marks Hezonja's first start.
