With the Knicks crushing the Washington Wizards, and the Sixers, Celtics, and Magic all losing, the 6th spot is now within reach. The Knicks could still finish anywhere from 6th - 9th, with the 7th and 8th spots the most likely.
My dilemma is I want Jeremy to take the rest of the season off and come back a guaranteed 100%. So, the best case for this would be finishing 7th-9th. Finishing 9th is obvious. 8th would be a matchup with the Bulls and 7th would be the Heat. Slim chance to advance. However, if they finish 6th, they have a very good chance of making the 2nd round. In this scenario, Jeremy would be close to 6 weeks off from surgery and with the enticing likelihood of facing the Heat in round 2.
How do you say no to this? Whats your thoughts?
