The Knicks put out their injury report Friday morning ahead of their matchup with the Pelicans at Madison Square Garden, and it looks like they could be very short-handed.
Julius Randle will miss his second straight game due to personal reasons, which head coach Mike Miller later clarified as being family matters.
In addition to missing Randle in the starting lineup, Marcus Morris is doubtful to play Friday night due to a sore neck. Morris has missed the last two games.
Dennis Smith Jr. continues to nurse a strained left oblique injury that has kept him out since Dec. 23, and will also miss Friday's game.
Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday is dealing with an elbow injury and has been ruled out, while forward Brandon Ingram enters the game day-to-day after spraining his right pinkie on Wednesday while facing the Bulls.
And although he's made some progress in his rehab and is participating in 5-on-5 drills, Zion Williamson will not make his season debut against the Knicks.
