The Knicks are “confident” in their ability to survive injuries

The New York Knicks remain a top-four team in the Eastern Conference despite a high number of injuries. Since OG Anunoby (elbow) and Julius Randle (shoulder) left the lineup, the Knicks are 6-8 after winning 12 of their first 14 in the new year as the former joined the fold following a December trade with Toronto .

But the Knicks (35-25) continue to avoid making excuses for their recent swoon, suffering a 110-99 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.

“We have enough guys,” center Isaiah Hartenstein, who recently missed four games, said via video from SNY. “We are confident in this until everyone comes back.”

“We can definitely learn from our past. We can be upset, pissed off for the rest of the day, until we fall asleep. But tomorrow morning we have to focus on the next one,” added point guard Jalen Brunson, per Tim Bontemps of ESPN. “Keep morale high, keep our confidence high. We all have to work hard individually to be confident. Come the next day, be ready to go, keep trusting each other, keep chipping away.”
