The New York Knicks may be getting prized rookie guard Kevin Knox back on the court as soon as this week.

Knox provided an update via Newsday’s Steve Popper:

“I felt good out there playing. Didn’t feel no pain or anything, just sore. I’m getting real close. Not [Sunday]. Probably a game-time decision on Monday — maybe, I don’t know yet. We’ll see. I’m going to keep progressing, make sure I stay in shape and keep getting my body ready.”

Knicks head coach David Fizdale also spoke about Knox’s progress.

“We’re going to bring him step by step, try to get him there,” Fizdale said. “And then eventually when we do a five-on-five practice, after we get that under his belt, then he’ll play.”
