Kryptonate Sidelined with a Severe Ankle SprainNovember 2, 2009
Nate Robinson will be unavailable tonight when the Knicks take on the Hornets. He suffered a severe ankle sprain in Saturdays overtime loss to the Sixers. Nate left the Garden on crutches and did not practice with the team on Sunday. He is listed as day to day but he will most likely be out for 2 weeks.
Larry Hughes who impressed Coach D’antoni with 18 points, 6 assists, 4 steals and 5 rebounds in 39 minutes of play will most likely get the bulk of Nates minutes. Larry got his first season appearance Saturday when he replaced Chris Duhon early in the 1st quarter and contributed heavily to the Knick 4th quarter comeback.
Danilo Gallinari looks to continue his torrid shooting as of late against Charlotte tonight at MSG. He drilled 8 3 pointers against the Sixers and is aiming to break Latrell Sprewells record of 9 set in 2003 when he went 9 for 9 from the arc.
