Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said in a recent interview that Julius Randle (left ankle surgery) will be “fresh and ready to go” for the start of training camp.
After appearing in 77 regular season games and earning a second All-Star Game appearance, Randle underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle in early June. That was after injuring the ankle on two separate occasions late last season, including Game 5 of the Knicks’ first-round series against the Cavaliers. The good news is that, according to Thibodeau, Randle will be good to go when camp begins. “Just steady progress. He’s had a very good offseason. He’ll be fresh and ready to go,” Thibodeau told NBA.com’s Steve Aschburner. Randle was a top 75 fantasy player last season, and managers should expect similar production in 2023-24.
