Knicks’ Alec Burks enters league health and safety protocols

Burks, 29, is coming off a strong stretch that includes his fourth-quarter heroics in Wednesday’s victory over the Pelicans. He has emerged as one of the team’s top playmakers and scorers off the bench. Without Burks, the struggling Immanuel Quickley could plug the hole, along with Rose and Elfrid Payton. Over the last 11 games heading into Friday, Quickley was averaging 7.8 points over 17.9 minutes while shooting just 33.7%.
