Crawford returns to Knicks’ lineup

New York, NY (Sports Network) – The New York Knicks activated guard
Jamal Crawford from the injured list prior to Monday’s game against the
Chicago Bulls.

Crawford has been sidelined since December 22 due to turf toe on his right
foot and has missed the Knicks’ last 10 games. The fourth-year pro averaged a
career-best 19.3 points along with 3.7 assists through the team’s first 26
contests.

To make room for Crawford on the active roster, New York placed reserve guard
Moochie Norris on the injured list with tendinitis in his left Achilles.
Norris is averaging 2.7 points and 1.2 assists in 26 games for the year.

Forward Tim Thomas, who has sat out three straight games with a sore left knee
and strained right calf, is also expected to return to action on Monday.
