All Knicks players vaccinated against COVID-19

It appears the New York Knicks won't have any issues regarding COVID-19 as it pertains to personnel practicing or playing at Madison Square Garden.

According to SNY's Ian Begley, general manager Scott Perry announced Friday that all Knicks players are vaccinated against the coronavirus.

As things currently stand, the NBA has told the Knicks and Brooklyn Nets they must follow the New York City vaccination mandate regarding individuals entering venues such as MSG. Players, thus, are not allowed to play in exhibition, regular-season or playoff games held at the "World's Most Famous Arena" unless they are vaccinated or have received approved medical or religious exemptions.

A report surfaced Thursday that Brooklyn All-Star guard Kyrie Irving has not received one of the vaccine shots. Neither Irving's representatives nor the Nets have commented on his vaccination or exemption status, but Brooklyn general manager Sean Marks admitted earlier this week some players would be "missing" if the team had to practice at Barclays Center as of Tuesday. 

Marks added, however, the situation should be resolved before the Nets start regular-season play next month.
