Immanuel Quickley

Why the Knicks would be better off with Immanuel Quickley in the starting lineup

The starts aren’t getting better. The Knicks have faced a significant first-quarter deficit in seven of their past eight games, including going down by double figures in five of them. Clearly, the starting five without Mitchell Robinson isn’t working, but there is a simple solution for coach Tom Thibodeau. Start one of your better players. Start the guy who is having the best season of his career, who is without a doubt one of your most effective two-way players, who is second on your roster in assist-to-turnover ratio, has the second-best net rating and the second-best defensive rating on the team. Start Immanuel Quickley. The...

Knicks’ Immanuel Quickley solid in return from knee injury

Immanuel Quickley’s sore left knee still wasn’t 100 percent on Tuesday night, but it was good enough for him to help the Knicks snap a four-game losing streak. The Knicks’ sixth man returned to action after missing his first game of the season on Sunday, and played 27 key minutes in the 105-103 win over the Cavaliers at the Garden. “[It felt] pretty good,” said Quickley, who had nine points, six assists, five rebounds and was a team-best plus-14. “A little sore, but overall, it was OK.” Quickley doesn’t like missing games. He appeared in 78 contests a season ago and was hoping...

Immanuel Quickley returns, adding firepower to Knicks' bench

Immanuel Quickley was back in action Tuesday after missing his first game of the season Sunday in Toronto with a sore left knee. For the Knicks it was a plus to have Quickley, who has been one of their most consistent contributors, back in action. But perhaps more important it was a necessary addition to the bench.

Immanuel Quickley sits out Knicks’ loss with knee soreness

TORONTO — As if losing Mitchell Robinson wasn’t enough, the Knicks were without another key member of their rotation Sunday night. Valuable reserve Immanuel Quickley missed his first game of the season with a sore left knee. His status is unclear moving forward. Quickley was a game-time decision. “Just general soreness,” coach Tom Thibodeau said before the Knicks lost for the fourth straight time, 125-116, to the Raptors. The 6-foot-3 Quickley is having a strong season, averaging career-highs of 12.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 27.4 minutes. He had 11 points in 36 minutes in Friday’s loss to the Hawks. Although he is only shooting...

Knicks' Immanuel Quickley misses first game of season with sore left knee

TORONTO — Immanuel Quickley was a late scratch Sunday with a sore left knee and missed his first game of the season. Quickley had not only played every game this season, starting eight games, but had been one of the NBA’s most heavily-used players since Christmas — ranking 17th in minutes per game (36.7) over that span (Jalen Brunson is first at 39.8 and Julius Randle is third at 39.3). He has averaged 17.8 points per game in that span.

Knicks not trading Immanuel Quickley?

Quickley’s been productive too, averaging 18.3 points and 4.2 assists. While his 3-point shooting has yet to come around as expected — just 32.9 percent this season — he is making it up with playmaking skill and strong defense. He’s a nice complement to Jalen Brunson in the backcourt, with length and tenacity. This long stretch seems to have solidified his place with the Knicks. Katz reported that the Knicks were willingly calling other teams about him earlier this season, but one NBA executive said this week he doesn’t believe Quickley is gettable in a trade anymore.

Bucks’ target Immanuel Quickley may be off the table in trade talks

Trade season is here, and the Milwaukee Bucks are bound to make a move in the coming weeks. The Bucks have been linked to a few names thus far, including Immanuel Quickley. According to HoopsHype, the Bucks are among a handful of teams to show interest in the New York Knicks guard this season. Quickley was an easily justifiable target for the Bucks, but it seems like they must now look elsewhere. Per NBA insider Marc Stein (Subscription required) while Quickley has generated plenty of interest, the Knicks are “increasingly reluctant” to part ways with him. SNY’s Ian Begley added that the Knicks are not seeking offers on the guard at this time. Amid a red-hot stretch lately, all signs point to Quickley staying in the Big Apple moving forward.

Immanuel Quickley gets majority of Knicks’ late minutes over Quentin Grimes

Immanuel Quickley headed back to his role as the Knicks’ sixth man Wednesday night after making seven consecutive starts due to injuries to Jalen Brunson and RJ Barrett.  Still, the third-year combo guard was on the court for the entire fourth quarter — with starter Quentin Grimes playing only the final 1:15 — as the Knicks held on for a key win over the Pacers after nearly blowing all of a 25-point second-half lead.  “I feel like today felt kind of similar just to starting and being out there early,” Quickley said after the game. “The last 10 games, or when I...

Latest trade report gives Knicks fans another reason to be thankful for Immanuel Quickley

New York Knicks fans were given a scare a few weeks ago when it was reported that the New York Knicks were shopping Immanuel Quickley. The 23-year-old is in his third season with the Knicks and similar to other young players on the roster, was put on the back burner. However, a series of injuries paved the way for Quickley to have an increased role as a starter, and he’s excelled.
