Reggie Bullock is set to make his debut with the Knicks.
After joining G-League Westchester last Thursday, the 28-year-old wing is on the verge of returning to the Knicks and debuting for the first time on the 2019-20 season.
The seventh-year pro, whom the Knicks signed Bullock to a two-year contract worth $8.2 million July 16, told Pete Botte of the New York Post that he is "150 percent healthy" and probable for Wednesday's 7:30 p.m. home game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
"I'm very excited. The injury is something that's behind me. I'm no longer talking about it anymore. I'm just focused on basketball and being back here with my team," said Bullock, whose sister tragically died in a November shooting. "The Knicks have done a great job of helping me out through the whole thing, with my family situations and everything.
"It's been a strong family support from them and they've allowed me to just focus on my recovery. Basketball has been my main focus over these last few months and it's going to continue to stay that way for the rest of the season."
Bullock underwent surgery for a cervical disk herniation July 17. After a long-winding road of rehabbing, he resumed full participation in practice Dec. 18 and expressed excitement over his anticipated return.
"I'm very excited, I'm excited to put on a Knicks jersey," Bullock said. "It was my reason to come here to New York, to be able to help the franchise, play for the city, play basketball ... I was down for a bit. But now I just work my way back and I'm just ready to be out there with my guys.
"I've been cleared for practice, now it's just all about getting in the groove with the guys, getting in the mix, and continuing to just work and just getting my conditioning back up and just being out there with the guys, just learning all the sets."
Through six NBA seasons with four different teams, Bullock averaged 6.8 points per game, shooting 39.2 percent from three-point range.
