New York Knicks power forward Julius Randle and center Mitchell Robinson have been ruled out of Wednesday’s game against the host Charlotte Hornets.

Randle will sit out his second straight game due to a sore right quadriceps tendon, while Robinson will be on the sideline because of a sore lower back.

Randle, 27, averages team-leading totals in points (20.3), rebounds (10.0) and assists (5.1) for the Knicks (30-42). He has played in 69 of 72 games this season for New York after sitting out just one contest in 2020-21.

Robinson, 23, has averaged 8.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 66 games (57 starts) this season.

Obi Toppin and Jericho Sims likely will move into the lineup in place of Randle and Robinson.
