NBA commissioner Adam Silver said he understands why the Knicks' Enes Kanter, who fears assassination by Turkish authorities, stayed in the United States while his teammates are in London.

David Fizdale told reporters in London that Mitchell Robinson will play for the Knicks against the Wizards on Thursday after missing more than a month with an ankle injury.

A look at the London-inspired Pumas Kevin Knox will wear on Thursday for the Knicks' game against the Wizards in London.

Kevin Knox was asked about his comfort level in playing 44 minutes and shooting 23 shots vs. Philly. (He scored a career-high 31 points on 12-for-23 shooting in the loss on Sunday). Knox veered off topic during the answer and started talking about his defense: "Shooting a lot of shots, you've got to be able to do the other things as well, as far as dirty work. Rebounding. Helping defensively and stuff like that… So I'm just trying to get better. I'm definitely going to make a lot of defensive mistakes but I definitely want to get better as the year goes on. I'm going to be able to take a lot of shots but I've got to be able to help my teammates on the other end."

Knicks rookie Kevin Knox on scoring a career-high 31 points vs. Philly: "It just shows that I've got a lot of room left to improve. I'm only 19," Knox said Sunday. "I just want to keep getting better, keep learning every single year. Keep improving different aspects of my game. It's cool to see but we've just got to try to get that win. All the points don't really matter (without it)."

After NYK's loss to PHI, David Fizdale was asked if he saw any similarities between NYK's rebuild and The Process in Philly: “It's similar but a little different from the standpoint of we're definitely playing a ton of young guys like they did. What they didn't have was Kristaps sitting over there. So I don't anticipate our struggle being as long as theirs. For Brett (Brown) to through three years of just taking it and trying to get them better and digging until they got the combination of guys they wanted out there. But yeah, I look at them and obviously I'm hopeful when you look at how they've grown their deal.”

After NYK's loss to PHI, Kevin Knox was asked if he saw any similarities between NYK's rebuild and the Sixers' process: "Yeah, I mean they went through a lot of struggles these last few years but they never gave up. They kept working. They kept with the same plan every single year. Got some draft picks, got healthy. Kind of similar to how we're doing it. We're a young team, it's going to be a struggle. We're going to go through some ups and downs but we're still going to keep working each and every day to get better. You could definitely say it's kind of a similar path."

In his last 8 games (7 starts) Luke Kornet is averaging 12.5 points (45% 3PT FG), 4 rebounds & 2.5 assists in 25 MPG. “It's been great and something I'm appreciative of,” Kornet said of the recent opportunity/uptick in minutes. “I think I'm just trying to help us play good team basketball and just kind of go from there and just live with the results. I think I'm out there playing like I have any other time in my life. Just trying to get all five guys on the court playing for the same thing and I thought we did a good job of it tonight. Hopefully we can keep that going moving forward and it will result in some wins.”

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

David Fizdale was asked on Sunday where he'd like the Knicks to be a year from now: “In the mix, improved. Obviously, we'll get a good draft pick at some point. Obviously, free agency will be at a premium. And I want these guys that's here to really make a jump and get better. And be able to be guys that we can fill in around Kristaps (Porzingis) and whoever else we add to the group.” New York currently projects to have around $30 million in cap space, so they're a cap-clearing transaction from having enough space for a max free agent.

The Knicks are planning to sign Kadeem Allen to a two-way contract prior to the Jan. 15 deadline to add two-way players, sources confirmed. Allen was with the Knicks in training camp and signed an Exhibit 10 contract to remain with the Knicks' G League club. He averaged 13.7 points on 47 percent shooting, 5.7 assists 1.6 steals per game for Westchester. Allen is also known as a strong perimeter defender. He will take the two-way spot that was vacated when the Knicks signed Allonzo Trier to a standard NBA contract. Allen, whose signing was first reported by The Athletic, will have roughly 23 days of NBA service available with this contract.

The Knicks cut a 24-point deficit to one entering the fourth quarter but missed 11 of 13 shots to open the 4th and couldn't complete claw all the way back against Philly. Kevin Knox had a career high 31 points (12-for-23). Luke Kornet had 23 points and 5 assists off the bench. New York has lost 17 of 19 games.

After rallying back to cut a 24-point deficit to one, the Knicks open the fourth quarter by shooting 2-for-13 and 1-for-5 from behind the arc.

Joel Embiid delivered a flagrant foul on a driving Luke Kornet, sparking a mini run by New York. Kornet hit two free throws on the tech, a put-back layup and defended an Embiid layup well at the third quarter buzzer to help New York cut Philly's lead to one entering the third. New York trailed by 24 in the first half.

Plenty of Eagles fans here at MSG for Sixers-Knicks on Sunday. A pocket of fans just started an "E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!" chant with the Sixers up 18 in the first quarter. Eagles-Saints kickoff is at 4:40 pm. Another rough day for New York sports.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Tim Hardaway Jr. is out with a hamstring injury so Emmanuel Mudiay, Damyean Dotson, Noah Vonleh, Lance Thomas and Kevin Knox are starting for the Knicks against the Sixers. Luke Kornet had been starting but my guess is David Fizdale sees Vonleh as a better matchup for Embiid.

David Fizdale reiterates that Enes Kanter is legitimately ill & he doesn't think the illness is related to his 'cheat day' meal - if he even ate it. "The eating thing is, I think that's him just messing with ya'll. He really has some flu-like symptoms. It's been kicking his butt."

Jimmy Butler will play today for the Sixers against the Knicks. Joel Embiid warmed up pregame, but no decision has been made yet regarding his status.
