• Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton will miss his third consecutive game on Sunday with a strained right hamstring.

    Payton has made some noise at PG for the Knicks this season, but he continues to miss time. David Fizdale hasn't exactly shown a willingness to start an actual point guard while Payton and Dennis Smith Jr. are out, but he reluctantly started Frank Ntlikina in the last game and was richly rewarded. It's impossible to predict how this lineup will shake out, but it's a position worth streaming whenever the minutes logjam can be avoided. Sunday looks like it'll be Frank, although that means nothing with Fizdale at the helm.
