Knicks, Toppin available again for the game against the Nets tonight

The Knicks, struggling with a three-game losing streak and multiple injuries, look like they are getting a big push against the Nets Wednesday night.

Obi Toppin, who has been out due to a strained right calf since he played opening night on December 23, has been updated to probable. Toppin, who showed flashes during the preseason and scored nine points against the Indiana Pacers on opening night, should inject some energy into a falling bout that has been among the NBA’s worst this season.

In addition to the likely return of Toppin, the Knicks will have the newly signed Taj Gibson at their disposal.
