 NEW YORK (AP) -Point guard Stephon Marbury missed the Knicks' game against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night because of a sore left ankle.
The Knicks don't believe there was a specific play where Marbury was hurt. He scored 13 points Friday night in a loss to Toronto, then didn't practice Saturday.
Marbury has missed 12 games, most coming after his father died on Dec. 2. He is averaging 13.9 points, six below his career average coming into the season.
He also missed a game at Phoenix in November after leaving the team following a clash with coach Isiah Thomas over his spot in the starting lineup. The Knicks fined Marbury one game's salary, which he is appealing.
Fred Jones replaced Marbury in the starting lineup against Detroit.
