Knicks coach Mike Woodson tells the media Knicks sharp shooter, Steve Novak, is doubtful for tomorrow’s game in Boston.
Novak has been officially listed as “questionable” by the organization.
Novak is only averaging 8 minutes per game after playing in 19 per game last year.
His field goal attempts are up from last year, though. They have increased from 1.8 to a resounding 2.o this year.
Novak left the last game with back spasms and didn’t return.
No doubt Novak has not been a factor on the stat sheets, but Novak is beneficial in keeping the floor spaced with his three point range.

RT @jeffzillgitt: Steve Novak (back spasms) is questionable for Game 6, Knicks say.

Novak hit a couple of late threes in Game 3, but other than that he has barely seen any court time this series. If he doesn't play his absence shouldn't affect the Knicks much, if at all.
The Knicks failed to sweep the Celtics with a win in game four in Boston. Instead, the number two-seed team in the Eastern Conference suffered a 97-90 loss in Beantown, effectively bringing the series back to the Big Apple for game five.Such a loss was suffered on the heels of one of Carmelo Anthony's most inefficient offensive performances of the year (the forward scored 36...
Call it bad fashion sense or poor playoff etiquette.
New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson sure didn't like his players' decision to wear black to Game 5 of their playoff series against Boston on Wednesday night, which they expected to be the Celtics' ''funeral.''
Only the Celtics are still alive after winning 92-86, and Woodson said Thursday he told the...
I am trying to figure out how Mike Woodson didn’t know about this. Kenyon Martin was shouting about it for days and it was all over the news.
I guess he was so locked in on his work, that he wasn’t really paying attention, but once he found out after the Game 5 loss to the Celtics he was upset.
“I’m a little upset about that, and I’ve addressed that,” Woodson said after...
After receiving a suspension for game four of the Knicks/Celtics playoff series, many New York fans blamed J.R. Smith for his team's loss last weekend.After missing his first ten shots of game five, Smith only started to pick up the pace in the later minutes of the contest. By then, it was too late for him to help the Knicks escape a 92-86 loss.Thus, there are plenty of Knicks...
There has been talk that the Knicks could get Amar'e Stoudemire back if they advance to the second round of the playoffs, and that remains the case.
Mike Woodson said this week that he wants to get Stoudemire some practice time to see how his knee responds. Stoudemire has missed New York's last 28 games following surgery. He underwent a debridement in early March.
The Knicks defeated the Celtics on Friday night, advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2000.
"Well, it's just another step," coach Mike Woodson said after the game. "It's a major step for this organization, for our fans in New York who've been with us for many years. The players that put in all the time this summer to get...
Displeased head coach Mike Woodson addressed the Knicks for purposefully wearing black to mimic a funeral before Wednesday’s elimination contest against the Boston Celtics in New York. Making the second-seeded Knicks look like a fleet of bat caves, the Celtics beat New York 92-86 to extend the heated first-round series to a Game 6 tonight in Boston. Long considered a malignant...
The idea that Mike Woodson might realize that this man needs to be more involved should be frightening to Celtics fans.Note: I was too depressed to write a playoff playbook post after Game 3, and after Game 4, I was just relieved Boston wasn’t going to be swept. Now that the Celtics seem to have made this into a real series once again, let’s take another in-depth Xs and Os look...
