The New York Knicks will be back in the nationally televised spotlight on Thursday when they host Steph Curry and the Warriors. New York will already be without three starters and could be without a fourth.

The Knicks haven't been able to catch a break. If it isn't one thing, it's another. Julius Randle, OG Anunoby, and Mitchell Robinson have been out for an extended period. New York was already at a disadvantage on Tuesday in the second half of a back-to-back, so when it was announced that Jalen Brunson and Isaiah Hartenstein were also out, the Knicks' chances of winning went out the window.

After losing to the Pelicans, it would be nice for the Knicks to pick up a win against the Warriors before they travel to Cleveland to take on Donovan Mitchell and the Cavaliers.
