New York Knicks’ Jeff Hornacek announced that Derrick Rose is out, and no changes were made to the starting lineup for Saturday’s game.

Nothing’s different for the New York Knicks in Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Per Al Iannazzone of Newsday, Knicks head coach announced that Derrick Rose (ankle) would miss his fourth straight game and his second against the Cavs.

Apologies to all of you Willy Hernangomez fans, the coach isn’t making any changes to the starting lineup. He’s rolling with Joakim Noah in the center spot.

More bad news guys. Looks like Noah’s going to clog things up all season long.

If the coach doesn’t care about stats then Noah’s not going anywhere. The $72 million man has been routinely awful this season, but he’s been particularly terrible in both games against the Cavs.

The Knicks do catch a break with Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving sitting out the game with right quad soreness (via Jason Lloyd of The Akron Beach Journal).
