Kurt Thomas played with the foot injury on Monday.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Knicks wouldn’t have defeated the Jazz Monday night without the efforts of Kurt Thomas. Sure, he only scored six points and injured himself after playing a season high 26 minutes, but at the age of 40, his heart and hustle was used as motivation for the rest of the team. Still, no matter how old he gets, his post defense is not to be ignored and the elbow jay is automatic...
Kurt Thomas wasn't sure he would even play Monday night after X-rays showed a bone spur in his right foot.
The New York Knicks veteran forward not only played, he earned a game ball for a gutsy, 27-minute effort that included six points, three rebounds and a season-high three blocks in a 90-83 victory over the Utah Jazz.
''Our defense really shined tonight, especially...

If it turns out that KT is done for the year, what are the Knicks options? If I am GM of this injury plagued team, you would have to release KT and look for the next ” big” available. With...

The latest to join the list of the injured are Tyson Chandler and Kurt Thomas, according to Newsday.The team announced on Tuesday that a MRI revealed a small, bulging disk in his neck. He will take the next week off to recover. For the season, the All-Star is averaging 10.7 points on an extremely efficient 64...
The constant changes to injury reports has become comical in my opinion, One minute Tyson has a contusion, then a stiff neck. Now he will have tests on the neck when he gets back to NY. Melo had fluid in his knee that was drained, but he is saying that it was because of a hamstring issue. Kurt Thomas was reported to be likely out for the year with a stress fracture and now we get...
Today the New York Knicks announced that Tyson Chandler will be out for 1 week or more with a bulging disc in his neck and Kurt Thomas will be out for 2-4 weeks with foot issues (stress fracture).
Many thoughts have gone through my head, but my real thoughts I cannot express in words. From 2010/11 playoffs when Amar’e hurt his back in warm ups, the Knicks injury bug has hit real...

After a dreadful West Coast road trip, in which the Knicks dropped as many bodies as games, they managed to avoid a sweep by scoring a win against the Utah Jazz. But it wasn’t all good. After one helluva performance against the Jazz, the warrior that is Kurt Thomas reportedly has a stress fracture in his right foot...
The New York Knicks have finally returned from the road trip from hell. Five games…four lopsided losses…three major injuries. Yet, a silver lining at the end with a gritty road victory over the Utah Jazz. They didn’t lay down and die, they slapped together a full team effort for a critical March victory. 27 minutes from Kurt Thomas with 3 blocks? 31 minutes from Chris Copeland...
The injury bug continues to bite the Knicks hard. With so many players having to take a step back due to various knee injuries, it's almost as though there's an evil Heat fan just poking a few Knickerbocker voodoo dolls in his basement.Nevertheless, though Carmelo Anthony may hope to be in uniform against Orlando on Wednesday, New York still announced that they'll be...
