The New York Post (Marc Berman) reports: Knicks center Eddy Curry was back on the practice court for the first time in nearly two months yesterday, but Mike D’Antoni made it clear he likely won’t be back in the rotation. Curry, who last practiced Jan. 9 in Houston because of a lack of conditioning and two sore knees, has played two minutes and 38 seconds this season. He could suit up tonight versus the Bobcats. But his role now – and for the forseeable future – is to play garbage time as the Knicks immerse themselves in a playoff race, two games out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference. They have no time to experiment with their 6-foot-11, 300-pound former franchise player, who has become an albatross – by far Isiah Thomas’ worst personnel move.
