New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson will return to the lineup on Saturday against the Denver Nuggets. Brunson has missed five of the Knicks’ last six games.
New York went 3-2 without Brunson in the lineup. The Knicks also lost to the Sacramento Kings where Brunson exited early in the second half.
Brunson originally felt pain in his foot late in a win over the Miami Heat. Brunson then sat out the next two games before trying to return to the Kings.
The Knicks open the day Saturday in fifth place in the Eastern Conference. New York’s next victory would clinch a winning season for the second time in the last three years. It will also be the Knicks’ first winning season in an 82-game season since 2013.
