The Knicks are dealing with a growing list of injuries entering a 7 p.m. ET game Saturday against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Among Friday's updates, Kevin Knox is probable with a sore left knee and bruised right (shooting) hand from Thursday's 100-83 loss to the Toronto Raptors at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla. 

Knox played through the bruised right hand and tied for a team-high 16 points on 5-of-14 shooting, including 2 for 8 from long range, while adding six rebounds in 31 minutes.

Alec Burks is questionable for the Pacers game with a sprained left ankle. Immanuel Quickley is also questionable as he nurses his sore left hip.

Frank Ntilikina (sprained right knee), Dennis Smith Jr. (contused left quad), Omari Spellman (sore right knee) and Obi Toppin (strained right calf) are out.

The Knicks (2-3) face the Pacers (4-1) after a game against Toronto in which New York shot 3 for 36 from deep. Meanwhile, also on Thursday, Indiana recorded a 119-99 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
