With Kristaps Porzingis being the future of the Knicks, the front office’s entire focus should be surrounding him with the type of players who can maximize his potential on both ends of the court.
Shattenkirk has been skating for a week now, and was off crutches from his mid-January knee surgery by Feb. 7. This certainly sounds like one of the shorter-term meniscus tears we sometimes see from players (Taylor Hall last year). We know Shattenkirk has been suffering from this injury all season, but he managed the pain with a cortisone shot to start the campaign (and posted 17 points in the first 18 games). He’s potentially returning to a torn-down Rangers roster, but one that can still put the puck in the net and ice a solid power-play unit. If he’s been skating for a week, hopefully watch for news of him practicing again with teammates in the next 10 days, at which point it’s time to scoop him up.
