|Nerlens Noel: Tending to minor ankle issue|
The Knicks expect Noel will be available to play in Wednesday’s Game 2 matchup with the Hawks after he tweaked his right ankle late in Sunday’s 107-105 loss in Game 1, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.
The Scoop: Noel didn't check back into the contest after exiting with just over five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, finishing the contest with six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two blocks and one steal. Taj Gibson ended up closing the contest as the Knicks' center, but Noel looks like he'll be ready to handle a larger portion of the minutes load at the position in Game 2. Noel should benefit from having two full days of rest before the rematch with Atlanta.
