With Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks ready to debut and return to the New York Knicks respectively, they will have to do without at least one starter.
According to SNY’s Ian Begley, Isaiah Hartenstein (Achilles) will not play in Saturday’s game against the Indiana Pacers (7:30 p.m. ET, MSG) while Jalen Brunson (ankle) is listed as questionable. Hartenstein, who left Thursday’s loss to Dallas early, previously missed two games in January with the same ailment and was replaced by Precious Achiuwa. The Knicks will also have Taj Gibson back as the veteran signed to another 10-day contract on Thursday.
Brunson did not play Thursday’s game after leaving Tuesday’s win over Memphis early. Miles McBride entered the starting lineup in his place at point guard.
