Michael Beasley was in a walking boot in the locker room. He said his left ankle injury was painful but there were no structural issues. Beasley landed on Russell Westbrook's foot in his first two minutes on the court.

The Knicks are expected to sign North Carolina forward Isaiah Hicks to a two-way contract by the end of the week, per league sources. The club left its second 2-way spot open after training camp with the hopes of finding a quality free agent. They have now filled both 2-way spots and have a full roster. Hicks was in training camp with Charlotte. The agreement was first reported by The Vertical.

Big 3 shine as Thunder take down the Knicks (2:55)

On Willy Hernangomez being out of the rotation, Jeff Hornacek basically said Enes Kanter and Kyle O'Quinn earned their minutes based on the preseason but that nothing is set in stone at this point.

Westbrook gets first triple-double (0:18)

I'm guessing this Knicks fan is leaving OKC with mixed emotions:

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Knicks fall to Oklahoma City, 105-84. Kristaps Porzingis (31 points on 11-for-25 shooting) was a lone bright spot. Carmelo Anthony started slowly but finished with 22 points on 20 shots in his OKC debut. He seemed to have a good time beating up his old team.

Jeff Hornacek has inserted Willy Hernangomez, Damyean Dotson and Frank Ntilikina into the game in garbage time. It wouldn't be a surprise if all three were in the regular rotation once the Knicks fall out of contention.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Willy Hernangomez checks in with 3:40 to play and the Knicks down 21. Frank Ntilikina will probably check back in shortly. Need to get him on the floor in garbage time here.

Westbrook gets fouled on the scoop-and-score (0:17)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Knicks management said that Willy Hernangomez was a part of the team's young core. Assuming he's healthy, it's a bit jarring to see him get a DNP tonight.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Knicks trail by 20 entering the fourth and the scary thing for Knicks fans is, turnovers aside, it's hard to see how this isn't the norm for this team.

play
Westbrook sets up back-to-back alley-oops (0:37)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Carmelo Anthony was tying his shoe near the Knick baseline, so the Thunder were playing 4 on 5. Knicks still couldn't stop Russell Westbrook, who converted a layup.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek is exasperated after the Knicks give up two alley-oops in less than a minute on two weakside breakdowns. Team defense, which was an issue last season, still needs work.

Westbrook finds Anthony for 3 (0:19)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek was very close to getting thrown out of the game. He received a technical foul for yelling at the refs after what he felt was a blown call. That may have been the most upset he's been as a Knick coach.

play
Westbrook uses his speed for two quick baskets (0:34)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

We've heard both Carmelo Anthony and Courtney Lee us NSFW language after a bad call. Only Courtney Lee received a technical though.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Inauspicious opening minutes for Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina. He had a bad turnover on a pick and roll and passed up a good look from beyond the arc for a deep contested two - the worst shot in basketball.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Update: Michael Beasley (left ankle sprain) will not return.

Porzingis shows off on drive to the hoop (0:16)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

X-rays were negative for Michael Beasley's left ankle. He's questionable to return.
