Ahead of the Knicks' matchup against the Nets on Friday, the team will be without their most productive point guard in Emmanuel Mudiay.
The team announced Mudiay suffered a left shoulder strain during the Knicks' contest against the Rockets on Jan. 23. An MRI confirmed the injury that will keep him out at least two weeks.
Mudiay has been the best of the three point guards on the Knicks' roster. He is averaging 14.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.9 assists over 37 games (32 games).
Now, head coach David Fizdale will have to rely on Frank Ntilikina and Trey Burke to pick up Mudiay's production. Fizdale didn't say who will get the start tonight, but he also noted that Courtney Lee could be back in the mix as well.
Despite Mudiay's points production, the Knicks are the worst team in the league when it comes to assists. They average 19.8 assists per game.
