The Knicks get another encouraging Julius Randle injury update

The New York Knicks are one step away from bringing Julius Randle back to the court. Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau revealed a promising update on Randle’s progression through the stages of his rehabilitation, as SNY’s Ian Begley shared on X:

The fact that Randle is just one step away from making contact in practice is a big plus for the Knicks. They just got OG Anunoby back on Tuesday after missing the last 18 games with elbow inflammation.

The Knicks are also expecting the return of Mitchell Robinson before the postseason. Randle’s reintroduction to the lineup will help a Knicks team that is 7-10 since Feb. 1.
