Wayne Ellington will start on Wednesday vs. the Knicks in place of the injured Elfrid Payton (strained right hamstring) while Dennis Smith Jr. (personal) is away from the team during their two-game road trip.
Coach Fizdale chose to start Ellington next to RJ Barrett in the backcourt tonight instead of Frank Ntilikina who will be the primary point guard off the bench. As long as Fizdale is the coach of the Knicks, the starting lineup is subject to change from one night to the other. Expect Fizdale to go with the hot-hand approach on Wednesday. Ellington doesn't have much fantasy appeal and is a risky dart throw in DFS lineups.
