(SOUNDBITE) (English) MARIO HEZONJA (NEW YORK KNICKS) ON ENES KANTER'S ABSENCE SAYING: "No.

I'm extremely sad that he couldn't come here.

That's a big hit for us.

You know as a team, as a competitor is through and under just having him around.

He's an amazing guy to be around so I mean I'm extremely sad that he's not here." Question - "Have you spoken to him.

How's he feeling at the moment?" "Yeah I mean he's a great friend of mine, we are in touch all the time but he's doing some other meetings right now.

So I'm sure he's having fun but we miss him over here." STORY: The New York Knicks and Washington Wizards were in London on Wednesday (January 17), preparing for the latest NBA match to take place in the city.

Build-up to the fixture has been dominated by the Knicks player Enes Kanter, who decided not to travel to the UK, over fears for his safety, due to his ongoing clash with Turkish President Recep Erdogan.

Kanter, a native of Turkey, has been an outspoken critic of the Turkish government and Erdogan.

Knicks teammates Mario Hezonja and Frank Ntilkina fully support his decision but admit that the side will miss the 6 foot 11 center.
