The New York Knicks have won seven in a row. Andrew Wiggins has missed seven straight games. At least one of those streaks will continue Tuesday night.

Wiggins hasn’t played since scoring 36 points against the Rockets on Dec. 3. At this point, it seems unlikely that he will play at all on the Warriors road trip, with two games remaining on Tuesday and Wednesday night. He will likely play Wednesday, when a sore knee will almost certainly sit Klay Thompson for New York’s second night of a back-to-back against the Brooklyn Nets.

The Warriors are already without Steph Curry, which means the young guys will get tons of minutes. We are children. Wiggins’ absence means it’s time for Ty Jerome to cook, baby.

Jonathan Kuminga also has a sore knee that kept him playing just 5 minutes against Toronto. In place of Wiggins, expect to see Delaware’s Michael Jordan Donte DiVincenzo in the starting lineup.

In the spirit of completeness, Curry is out for several weeks with a shoulder subluxation, Andre Iguodala is out with what is officially being called a hamstring injury, and power forward David West retired in August 2018.
