Plumlee went down last week, after Knicks power forward Julius Randle accidentally crashed into his knee while chasing a loose ball. Plumlee suffered a sprained MCL and is expected to miss several weeks.

Theis, 31, has appeared in just one game this season, after playing just seven last year because of a knee injury. He said earlier this month that he’s “not happy” about his end-of-the-bench role with in Indiana.

Theis has also spent time with the Celtics, Rockets and Bulls.
