After a skirmish with Marvin Williams in Friday’s game vs. The Atlanta Hawks, Shawne Williams received a one-game suspension. Under normal circumstances the absence of Williams would not make too big of an impact on the Knicks game plan, but Williams was already starting in place of Wilson Chandler (calf) who is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Pistons. To go along with the absence of Chandler and Williams, Amar’e Stoudemire has a minor knee injury and is also questionable to play against Detroit. This will stretch the usually tight Knicks rotation very thin.
The New York Knicks will trade Anthony Randolph for a first-round draft pick within the next two weeks, according to league sources.
Minnesota, Indiana and Portland are among the likeliest destinations.
