After cruising to a 145-101 win over the Raptors in Toronto on Wednesday, the New York Knicks are in San Antonio to take on the Spurs.

This game holds much more importance for New York than it does for San Antonio, who has already been eliminated from the playoffs. The Spurs are still a fun team to watch, thanks to Victor Wembanyama.

The rookie phenom shot 4-of-14 for 14 points and nine rebounds in his team's 126-105 loss to the Knicks on November 8. Mitchell Robinson was a big reason for that, and the center is back in the lineup after missing 50 games due to ankle surgery.

The Knicks have a half-game lead over the No. 4 Cavaliers. In a tight Eastern Conference, every game matters. It doesn't matter that the Spurs have a 17-56 record; the Knicks can't take their foot off the gas.

Victor Wembanyama's status for tonight's game vs. Knicks

Victor Wembanyama isn't on the injury report. He missed San Antonio's game on March 25 because of a sprained left ankle. Wemby returned to the lineup on March 27 in a 118-111 win over the Jazz and played 30 minutes.
