steph_zeke.jpgThe rift between Isiah Thomas and Stephon Marbury is widening as Thomas has reportedly instructed the former all-star to not attend any Knicks home games for the remainder of the season.

 According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, a Marbury confidant has told the paper that management has placed a gag order on Marbury, forbidding him from speaking with the media.

Its been a tumultuous season for Marbury, as he’s been out of action for the majority of season. 

In November, Marbury left the team before an away game in Phoenix reportedly after Thomas planned to remove the Brooklyn native from the starting lineup. Tragedy then hit the Marbury clan, as its patriarch passed away minutes before the end of a December home game at Madison Square Garden. Weeks later it then discovered that Marbury was to undergo season-ending surgery to remove bone spurs in his bum left ankle.

Thomas refused to mention Marbury by name, Wednesday, when talking about the club’s backcourt plans for next season.

Marbury has one year and $21 million remaining on his contract: a potential bargaining chip for the salary cap straddled Knicks.
