New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson will return to the lineup on Saturday vs 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 a game at the Sacramento Kings where Brunson exited early in the second half.
Brunson originally felt soreness in his foot late in a victory over the Miami Heat. Brunson then sat out the next two games before trying to return at the Kings.
The Knicks open the day on Saturday in fifth place in the Eastern Conference. New York’s next victory will 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.
