One of the most anticipated matchups of the season is finally here. New York Knicks fans didn't have to wait too long for RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley to return to MSG after being traded for OG Anunoby on Dec. 30.

The former Knicks duo have been on fire for the Raptors, with Barrett averaging 20.2 points per game and Quickley averaging 18. They should both have big games back where their NBA careers began.

New York fans should give both a standing ovation. If you're at the Garden and you hear someone boo, it's probably just Josh Hart.

Speaking of Hart, he missed Thursday's win over Washington, the first game he's missed this season. Hart said he's day-to-day with knee soreness, something he's used to dealing with at this point of the season.

"I’m not surprised with how it feels. Normally, once you get later in the season, Game 50-ish, 55-60 you start kind of feeling it,” Hart said. “Then you have a little All-Star break so you can kind of rest for some days and then get back into it."

Between the Knicks' playoff run last year (Hart's postseason debut) and the FIBA World Cup, Hart didn't have the offseason he's used to. He said he was going to receive treatment on Friday so that he could try to be ready to go on Saturday.
