The Knicks are down a latest player in Miles McBride, who entered health and safety protocols Saturday.

New York (13-16) now has six players in protocols as McBride joins RJ Barrett, Quentin Grimes, Kevin Knox, Immanuel Quickley and Obi Toppin.

Derrick Rose (injury/illness, right ankle sore) is questionable for Saturday's game at the Celtics (14-15), a 7 p.m. tip-off at TD Garden in Boston.

McBride, a rookie as the 2021 NBA Draft's No. 36 overall pick, is averaging just 2.9 points and 1.2 assists in 6.9 minutes over 10 games.

However, McBride broke out to a degree in Thursday's 116-103 win at the Houston Rockets, dropping 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting and dishing nine assists while logging 36 minutes -- all single-game career-high numbers.

Alec Burks, Evan Fournier, Taj Gibson, Nerlens Noel, Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson remain as active roster members to have played in Thursday's game. Kemba Walker and Wayne Selden were a coach's decision to not play in the Rockets game.
