Knicks point guard Kemba Walker is out (rest) for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at MSG.

The first game of a back-to-back, Walker, who didn’t play a single back-to-back all last season after recovering from a knee injury, should be good to go when the Knicks travel to Philadelphia on Monday to take on the 76ers.

Having started in all nine games so far for New York this season, the Bronx native has averaged 26.4 minutes per game while scoring 12.7 points, his lowest point total since his rookie season, and dishing out a career-low 3.0 assists per game.

However, the four-time All-Star has been scalding from downtown this season, shooting a career-best 48.1 percent from three.

The Knicks have yet to announce who will start in Walker’s place, but fellow guard Derrick Rose will likely get the starting nod for the first time this season.

The 33-year-old has been more than capable off the bench, averaging an almost identical 12.7 points and 2.9 assists in 22 minutes per game.
