November 8, 2019, 9:59 amDennis Smith Jr.PG, New York Knicks
Dennis Smith has traveled with the Knicks, but his status is questionable vs. the Mavs on Friday.
Smith had been on bereavement leave since October 27 due to the death of his stepmother. He's been "with" the team for the last few games, but the Knicks have ruled him out anyway. There's a small chance that he could be active tonight as he's been upgraded to questionable, but Sunday against the Cavs still looks like his likely return date. Upon his return, he and Frank Ntilikina figure to split the PG minutes right down the middle in the absence of Elfrid Payton. Outside of RJ Barrett, this entire backcourt is off limits for fantasy purposes.
