BOSTON — Knicks sharpshooter Steve Novak is inactive for Game 6 with back spasms, and could potentially miss a Game 7 on Sunday as well.
“I just think [his back] went out, locked up on him [in Game 5],” Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. “He couldn’t come back after the halftime, so we’ve got to move on.”
As for Novak potentially playing Sunday at Madison Square Garden, Woodson said, “He’s day-to-day.”
The Knicks could opt to use 28-year-old rookie Chris Copeland off the bench in Novak’s place but he has yet to score a point in the series.
