Julius Randle (ankle) has been cleared to play Game 2 against the Miami Heat.
Randle missed the Knicks loss in Game 1, but will look to aid New Yorks quest to tie things up in Game 2. He could have a lighter workload given he’s been managing an injury, but expect him to be one of the more productive Knicks players.
Julius Randle (ankle) is expected to be out for Game 1 between the New York Knicks against the Miami Heat Sunday according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Julius Randle is targeting a return vs. the Cavaliers on Saturday in Game 1.
Randle has been steadily improving and plans to test his left ankle prior to gametime before making a final decision on rejoining lineup for Game 1. He has been sidelined since injuring his ankle on March 29. Obi Toppin should remain in the starting lineup if Randle can't play.

RJ Barrett (illness) and Obi Toppin will both get more work while Randle is out on Friday night.
