Mitchell Robinson expressed his displeasure on Twitter over the narrative that he has been getting severely outplayed by Bam Adebayo on this collection.

A Twitter consumer wrote to Robinson that he shouldn’t name himself the perfect middle in New York when he’s getting “abused” by Adebayo.

Robinson responded.

“How I get abuse[d]? After I gotta assist EVERY time on protection yeah lol make sense,” he wrote, accompanied by a laughing and thumbs-down emoji.

Adebayo is coming off back-to-back doubles-doubles and has been the perfect huge man within the collection, which the Warmth lead 3-1. Robinson has struggled. He’s coping with a bothersome proper hip, though he didn’t use that as an excuse after the Knicks’ Recreation 4 loss in Miami.

“I bought to determine it out,” Robinson mentioned after the sport through which he had six factors, seven rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes. “I bought to have extra vitality, extra urgency, attempt to get the job carried out.”

The Knicks have been outrebounded by the Warmth within the final two video games, and had been notably unhealthy on the glass on Monday. Miami had seven offensive rebounds within the fourth quarter alone.

“S—, bought to field out. We bought to restrict them to 1 shot,” Robinson mentioned. “I didn’t do an excellent job of it [on Monday]. And I bought to be higher.”

Immanuel Quickley was listed as uncertain with a sprained left ankle by the Knicks for Wednesday night time’s Recreation 5 on the Backyard. It’s unlikely he will probably be obtainable.

Quickley was seen sporting a strolling boot previous to Monday’s Recreation 4 loss and was strolling with a noticeable limp.

Miles McBride took Quickley’s spot within the rotation and was scoreless in 4 minutes.

Jimmy Butler (sprained proper ankle) and Caleb Martin (again contusion) of the Warmth are questionable. Each are anticipated to play.
