I don't think he's afraid that the Knicks will miss the playoffs. I think that he's afraid of how they will play in the playoffs.
We all know the Knicks are getting in. Even if they lose all the remaining games they would finish 38-44. That means the Raptors would have to go 12-4 and the Sixers would have to go 15-3 (we own the tiebreaker) until the end to get in.
That's basically impossible so we're basically a lock to make the playoffs even if we lose all games until the end.
