Sims was known for his performance in the NBA Dunk Contest during the All-Star break.
He has not done much during the regular season (3.4 points, 4.7 rebounds per game).
Also, he did not play during the first-round playoff series.
When the playoffs come around, the rotations for each team always shrink.
Sims was one of the last men out.
The surgery for Sims was for a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
As for the Knicks, they are getting set for their second-round series without Sims.
New York will face the Miami Heat, in hopes to return to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2000.
The Knicks did a great job improving their roster this season.
One player that has stepped up this season is former Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson.
The Knicks signed Brunson this offseason and he has played at an All-Star level.
He will be relied on to carry the Knicks on offense and continue to put his teammates in a place to succeed.
The Knicks have been one of the surprises of the NBA this year, and they hope to keep advancing.
