The New York Knicks star RJ Barrett, who was out the visit to his hometown on Jan. 6 due to a lacerated finger, is looking forward to the Knicks’ game Sunday at Toronto.

“I can’t wait to play. I can’t wait,” Barrett said on Friday night. “But [sitting out] wasn’t as bad, because I knew we were coming this time.

“It’s going to be a tough, physical playoff-type game. That’s what it’s been the three times we played them. We owe them. It’s going to be a good matchup. You know I’m excited.”
