D'Antoni has 1 year remaining on a 4-year, $24 million deal. This is the first year his team has made the playoffs.
Yesterday, D'Antoni cautioned reporters not to assume anything because his agent was at practice.
D'Antoni, whose team is 38-38 going into tonight's game against visiting Toronto, also said he is more focused on getting his team ready for the playoffs than on his future.
"You do the best you can do. And it usually works out some way," he said. "I'm 60 years old, so it's not like I have to live and die by it. If I was 40 I'd be a little bit more worried. I'm at an age now where, thank God, I can live for today and try to get this team right."
The Knicks have six games remaining to try to finish with their first winning record since going 48-34 in 2000-01. They are 1 1/2 games behind the Sixers for the No. 6 seed, and play in Philadelphia tomorrow.
* Charlotte Bobcats leading scorer Stephen Jackson said he'll miss a third straight game tonight at Cleveland with continued pain in his left hamstring.
Jackson was unable to practice and said he still has sharp pain every time he straightens his leg.
Jackson, averaging 18.5 points, wouldn't say he'll shut it done for the rest of the season, saying only, "You'll have to hear that from somebody else."
* Miami guard Dwyane Wade received treatment on his bruised right thigh and is not sure how it will affect him over the next few days.
He was hurt in the first half of Sunday's win over the New Jersey Nets. Wade returned to that game in the second half. He said he doesn't know if he'll play in Miami's home game tomorrow night against Milwaukee.
* The Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum suffered right knee injuries in a loss to Denver Sunday, but neither were serious.
Gasol suffered a bone bruise and is listed as day to day. Bynum, who left the game after teammate Lamar Odom fell into his right knee, said he will play tonight against Utah.
