What do Knicks do to Jericho Sims when Mitchell heals Robinson?

No good deed goes unpunished at the New York Knicks.

Earlier this month, center Jericho Sims was the Knicks’ 12th man, a de facto part of the cleanup crew in dire situations. He was nonetheless a natural choice to take on extended responsibilities when Mitchell Robinson injured his knee in the Nov. 4 win in Philadelphia, despite the dreaded “DNP-CD” appearing on his boxing score five times in his first seven games.

In the last few games, Sims has turned his 12 into a nine. He gained the trust of head coach Tom Thibodeau when he opted for a nine-man rotation.
