The Knicks are in danger of losing a key player to the Hornets

The New York Knicks seemed to hit some turbulence during their best stretch of the season.

Knicks forward Julius Randle suffered a dislocated right shoulder Saturday against the Miami Heat and will undergo an MRI, according to multiple reports.

Randle, who averages 24 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, likely won’t be available for the Knicks against the host Charlotte Hornets on Monday.

“He’s a guy who takes on situations and that’s what you love about him,” Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said. “He IS a warrior. I don’t want to speculate until we have the information.”

Despite the injury, the Knicks continued their recent surge, beating the Heat at home 125-109 on Saturday. Jalen Brunson scored 32 points in that game.

New York will look to build on their season-best six-game winning streak when they travel to face Charlotte. The Knicks will rely on their depth if Randle is forced to miss extended time.
