Knicks forward Taj Gibson is dealing with a calf injury with the regular season right around the corner.
New York head coach David Fizdale described the injury as a "sore calf."
The Knicks begin their regular season slate on Wednesday in San Antonio against the Spurs. Fizdale didn't rule him out for Game 1 of 82 just yet.
"(Team doctors) are saying it's a chance he'll play.He just tweaked his calf the other day, so hopefully we'll have him back for that," Fizdale said.
Gibson, 34, was one of the numerous free agent acquisitions the Knicks made this offseason. Gibson inked a two-year, $20 million deal.
The former first-round pick of the Bulls in 2009 averaged 10.8 points on 56.6 percent shooting and 6.5 rebounds in 70 games last season with the Timberwolves.
On the positive side, Fizdale also said Gibson is the lone injury issue the Knicks are dealing with as their 2019-20 season begins.
