Key points on the Jets' final injury report for Monday night: WR Brandon Marshall and C Nick Mangold are good to go. Marshall returned to full practice after sitting two days. The new concern is DE Mo Wilkerson. Just three days after Todd Bowles said Wilkerson is "feeling a lot better," the Jets are listing him as questionable. He didn't practice today due to the ankle injury that has hampered him throughout the season.

Westchester Knicks coach Mike Miller says Cleanthony Early has been a full participant in practice after missing three months with a hamstring injury. Miller expects Early, the Knicks' second-round draft pick in 2014, to begin playing in games with the Westchester Knicks this month. Early is an NBA free agent, so he can sign with any club.

The Giants signed LB Deontae Skinner off practice squad. Waived OL Shane McDermott. This is because they need special teams help and Brett Jones and Marshall Newhouse looking good for Sunday. McDermott became expendable.

Courtney Lee says his ankle sprain is improving and he hasn't ruled out returning to the lineup Sunday against the Kings. The big test will be if Lee can move well laterally today. "It feels a lot better than it did when I initially twisted it," Lee said Friday. "I wasn't able to walk that night but I was able to move around (Friday)." If Lee can't play Sunday, look for Justin Holiday to start in his place.

Knicks 118, Timberwolves 114: the Knicks (10-9) complete a sweep of a home and home series against Minnesota to reach .500 for the latest point in a season since 2012-13. Kyle O'Quinn (20 points, 13 rebounds) was fantastic in place of an injured Joakim Noah. Carmelo Anthony had a strong shooting night (29 points on 20 shots) after struggling in the past 3 games; Derrick Rose added 24 points and five assists.

How's this for a defensive sequence? Kyle O'Quinn blocks Karl-Anthony Towns' layup attempt off of a post move and he and Kristaps Porzingis combine to block Towns' next attempt. It preserves a six-point Knicks lead and essentially seals the win. O'Quinn is having the best outing of his 102-game Knick tenure.
