Taj Gibson has a golden opportunity to further contribute for the New York Knicks this season after signing another 10-day contract on Friday. Plagued by injuries, the Knicks need healthy decision-makers who can keep their winning ways alive as the All-Star break approaches. Gibson will remain on the roster to cap a depleted frontcourt rotation.
Gibson is averaging 1.2 points in 10.2 minutes per game. While his numbers don’t jump out from the stats, Gibson is a skilled scorer who can rebound well and finish with a light touch inside or in the midrange.
He’ll get a shot in a few minutes as Julius Randle (shoulder) and Mitchell Robinson (ankle) are out for extended periods of time and starting center Isaiah Hartenstein joined them on the shelf after injuring his Achilles tendon in 122- 108 last night. loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
