As another basketball season draws to a close, the Knicks host the Bucks for their 79th game of the season. Just as many other seasons have ended for the team this century, they are left jostling for lottery position rather than playoff seeding.
Against Giannis Antetokounmpo and co., the Knicks will be without Emmanuel Mudiay (concussion) and are likely to be without Tim Hardaway Jr. (ankle) and Enes Kanter (back, wrist), who are listed as doubtful.
After a surprise win against the playoff-bound Heat, the Knicks currently hold the 9th place in the lottery. They are one game "behind" the Bulls for 8th and two "behind" the Nets (whose pick is owned by the Cavaliers via the Celtics) for 7th.
