With the Knicks clinching a playoff spot and most likely the 5th seed, should they start resting key players?
After a 2 year drought, the Knicks were able to officially clinch a playoff spot with a 118-109 win against the Wizards this past Sunday. This caps off a great comeback season for this organization and is something to definitely feed off heading into the postseason. Now that the playoffs are locked up, it might be wise for the Knicks to start resting their starters and other key contributors off the bench. One of the biggest reasons why they should consider this is because of the injury to Julius Randle, who can possibly miss the start of the playoffs due to a sprained left ankle.
The last thing the Knicks need right now is anything getting injured during these last 3 regular season games that don’t mean much. According to the Eastern Conference standings, it’s likely that the Knicks will remain in the 5th seed and face the Cavaliers in the 1st round. If the stage is already set, why run the risk of injury?
All Hands on Deck!
Plus, with key players such as Jalen Brunson and RJ Barrett who has missed games throughout the season due to injury, it might be best to just settle down and prepare for the upcoming postseason. The Knicks will need all hands on deck if they want to make an impact in this year’s playoffs.
If I was Tom Thibodeau, I would make Wednesday’s game against the Pacers the last game of the regular season for Jalen Brunson, RJ Barrett, and Immanuel Quickley. With the playoffs starting on April 15th, they might have to fight off a little bit of rust when they return but I’d rather that than a possible injury. Knowing how coach Thibodeau runs things, this might not occur but it doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be considered. We’ll just have to see how it plays out.
Hopefully, the Knicks can just end the season without suffering any more injuries.
