The Knicks are in full-on tank mode, which is working. Trading Tim Hardaway Jr. and/or Courtney Lee could help their quest to clear more cap space for the summer of 2019, but there might be an issue.

According to Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic, the Knicks "have been adamant about not attaching assets" to either Hardaway or Lee in order to help facilitate a trade.

Vorkunov notes, however, that the pressure of the trading deadline -- on Feb. 7 -- could potentially make an interested team blink...

Kevin Knox

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Most NBA rookies, even the great ones, hit a wall at some point. Kevin Knox got that out of the way early.

Three games into his rookie season with the Knicks, Knox suffered an ankle sprain that sidelined him for two weeks. Upon returning, he struggled in all areas of the game, as he felt his way into a consistent role.

Now, with those early growing pains out of the way, Knox has turned a corner. At the changing of the calendar year, he was named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for a December campaign, in which he averaged 17.1 points and six rebounds per game while shooting 38.4 percent from three-point range.

The Knicks may have caught only a couple hours of sleep on their flight to London Tuesday, but they weren't thinking about the hotel beds when they landed at 10:30 a.m. They were ready to hit the London streets.

The team has an agenda for their trip to Europe to face the Wizards on Thursday, and head coach David Fizdale made it a point to include some tourist time for his squad.

"We'll try to do it in a way that doesn't have them on their feet a lot," Fizdale told The Post's Marc Berman. "But they gotta see all of that. They gotta experience it. The whole beauty of this is learning about new culture, new food, new everything. You gotta open up your mind...

Courtney Lee is not bothered with the Knicks 2-13 record over their last 15 games and is taking an optimistic approach to the development of the Knicks' young talent.

"Being in this league for a while you understand that's the best direction to go in, especially having a young core," Lee said in a report from Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. "And then just to look at the record it's not what anybody wanted it to be right now, so one thing you can do to take a positive out of that is just developing the young guys. If you put yourself first, it's very difficult. But I understand it's for the betterment of the team."

Lee has not played over the last three games. His last appearence was Dec. 27 in the Knicks 112-96 loss at the Milwaukee Bucks where he scored nine points in 23 minutes of action.

It is not often the Knicks win a game these days. 

What is even more rare is for owner James Dolan to be there for a road game, sitting courtside and celebrating with the team in the locker room afterwards. 

But that is exactly what happened when the Knicks snapped an eight-game losing streak against a LeBron James-less Lakers team with a 119-112 victory on Friday night.

The Knicks Tank has been in full effect over the last month as the team has greatly increased its odds to land one of the Top 3 picks in the NBA Draft.  

Since a three-game winning streak that had them at 7-14 on Nov. 25, the Knicks have come crashing back to Earth, going 2-12 as their record has dropped to 9-26.

After their Christmas Day loss to the Bucks -- their fifth-straight -- the Knicks find themselves tied in the loss column with the Suns and Cavaliers (both at 8-26) for the worst record in the NBA. That puts them just a half game back of being in the No. 1 spot for the Draft Lottery...

Things to know about Tuesday's game

1) There was no groin-punching this Christmas, as Giannis Antetokounmpo didn't see his beef with Mario Hezonja extend to Tuesday's game because the latter didn't play. The quarreling between the two began when Hezonja stepped over Antetokounmpo after throwing down a dunk during the Knicks' OT win over the Bucks on Dec. 1. It evolved into some threats of hits below the belt and even some trash talking from the Bucks team website. But David Fizdale decided against a potential Round Two.

Knicks coach David Fizdale revealed on Wednesday that SG Tim Hardaway Jr. is dealing with plantar fasciitis, a dreaded chronic heel ailment that has been bothering his right foot.

Hardaway will return to the lineup Wednesday against the 76ers after missing Monday night's loss to the Suns. But Fizdale said the Knicks are going to have to evaluate their leading scorer one day at a time.

"Plantar fasciitis is nagging," Fizdale said, according to Newsday's Steve Popper. "Some days it aches so bad you can't move on it. Other days you can tolerate. He's trying to manage it.

After splitting two matchups in late-October, the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets meet on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden coming off vastly different results against two of the Eastern Conference's best teams.

The Nets pulled out a 106-105 overtime win over the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors on Friday night, snapping an eight-game losing streak, a day after the Knicks dropped a 128-100 decision at Boston.

New York managed just 39.6 percent shooting from the field in the loss as the bench went cold, connecting on just 12 of 36 attempts. Worse, the Knicks' defense was puzzled by the Celtics, who shot better than 53.3 percent from the field and finished with 32 assists.

His improving efficiency and playmaking makes his contract look more and more reasonable, and with a potential regression and monster free agency looming, the Knicks could be inclined to listen to offers for their stud shooting guard.

New York Knicks guard Courtney Lee will make his season debut Saturday when the Milwaukee Bucks visit Madison Square Garden.

Head coach David Fizdale said Lee was "probable" for the matchup with the Bucks after returning to practice just about a week ago. The guard, who is in his 10th year in the league, has missed the first 23 games of the 2018-2019 season due to a persistent neck injury.

"One thing I know is we definitely don't have veterans, so having a veteran in the mix now, especially since we haven't had Lance [Thomas], we just really miss that presence," Fizdale said Friday after practice. "So I've just got to figure out how I'm going to work him into the rotation."

Things to know about Sunday's game

1) It wasn't supposed to be a close game, but the Knicks made it interesting in the final minute as they were only down 116-114. They caught a big break, too, when Jusuf Nurkic (13 PTS, 10 REB, 4 AST, 2 BLK) was called for a reach-in on Noah Vonleh (14 PTS, 13 REB, 2 AST, 2 BLK). But Vonleh missed both free throws to tie the game, and in turn, Damian Lillard buried a contested jumper which would be the eventual dagger.

Knicks head coach David Fizdale's lineup experiment continues on Friday night when his starting five will feature all three rookies for the first time this season. 

First-rounder Kevin Knox got his first career start against the Thunder in Wednesday's 128-103 blowout, and second-rounder Mitchell Robinson has been cemented at center for some time now. 

It will be undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier making his first career start, as he has impressed early on this season. The three rookies will work alongside Emmanuel Mudiay and Tim Hardaway Jr. at tip off.

The Knicks tried a new starting five on Wednesday night, but it didn't work as Paul George led the Thunder to a dominant 128-103 win on their home court. >> Box score

Things to know about Sunday's game

1) Head coach David Fizdale mixed up his starters with rookie Kevin Knox getting his first career start, and Emmanuel Mudiay taking over for Damyean Dotson and Frank Ntilikina respectively. But the move didn't change the woes the Knicks have faced in the last three games. Knox did finish with 15 points, but only on 5-of-16 from the field, including two three-pointers. Mudiay had just seven points, and was quick to dish the ball back out to the perimeter when he looked to have an open lane to the bucket on some possessions.

Things to know about Saturday's game

But when things settled down, the Knicks were keeping up with the Raptors as the first quarter ending in a 25-25 tie. But the home team turned it up in the second quarter with 39 points to New York's 28, and ran away from there. Seven Raptors finished with double-digit points.

Knicks lose in double overtime 00:01:23

Despite clutch game-tying shots by Allonzo Trier in regulation and Emmanuel Mudiay in double overtime, Zach LaVine hit a free throw with 0.2 seconds remaining in the second overtime after a Mudiay foul as the Knicks lost to the Chicago Bulls 116-115 on Monday at Madison Square Garden.

Knicks rookie forward Kevin Knox scored two points and played five minutes in Monday's double-overtime loss against the Chicago Bulls in his first game back from a sprained ankle.

Knox, New York's first-round pick from this year's NBA draft, had been out since Oct. 20 due to a sprained ankle he suffered against the Boston Celtics.

Knox made 1 of 2 field goals and recorded one steal and one turnover. He had scored 10 and 17 points in two complete games before he suffered the injury. 

Teammate Tim Hardaway Jr., who suffered a back injury in Sunday's loss to the Washington Wizards, was available to play but did not log any minutes on the court Monday.

One of the few bright spots of the Knicks' 3-7 start to the season has been the play of Tim Hardaway Jr. In his sixth year, and fourth in New York, Hardaway is the team's leading scorer with a much-improved outside shot, and has been their most dependable option on the offensive end as other players shuffle in and out of the lineup.

But the 26-year-old Hardaway is also due a lot of money -- $17.3 million this season, and $37.1 million over the next two. By the time his contract is up, he'll be 29 and due for an even bigger payday, and it remains to be seen whether the Knicks will be any closer to a return to the playoffs by then. It's a worthwhile question as to whether the Knicks' best course of action is to keep Hardaway around during the rebuild or cash in on his value right now and go even younger.

With Kristaps Porzingis sidelined for the foreseeable future, Hardaway is seeing the most offensive responsibility thus far in his career, and he's making the most of the opportunity. He's shooting a career-high 40.2 percent from three-point range on 8.7 attempts per game, while also getting to the free-throw line more than he ever has (a career-high 25.7 percent free-throw rate).

After turning a 13-point second-half deficit into a tie game, the Knicks faltered late as they lost to the Washington Wizards 108-95 on Sunday at Capital One Arena.

Things to know about Sunday's game

1. The Knicks trailed 77-64 with 4:01 remaining in the third quarter but went on an 18-5 run, capped by a Trey Burke layup, to tie the game at 82. But Washington's Jason Smith scored a layup to start a 16-4 run that would ice the game for the Wizards.

2. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored just seven points on 2-of-10 shooting, while Enes Kanter had a double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds off the bench for New York, which fell to 3-7.
