Knicks guard Ron Baker broke his face when Anthony Davis dunked on him earlier this season.

And the hits just keep coming for Baker.


Baker is a fringe rotation player on a team with only a longshot of competing for the playoffs. New York will be fine – at least no less fine – without him.

But this just makes it even more likely Baker opts into the final year of his relatively expensive contract next offseason.
