    Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) is being listed as questionable vs. the Rockets on Monday.

    This ankle has been bothering him for the past couple of games and it caused him to completely miss Friday's matchup vs. the Pacers. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Payton was dealing with a sore right ankle which caused him to miss practice on Saturday and now his groin is also bothering him. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off but if he does suit up he'll be worth playing seeing as he's been an upper mid-round guy as of late.

    Mitchell Robinson (sprained left ankle) is being considered probable coming into Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

    He didn't practice on Saturday so it's good to see that he's made enough progress to play just two days later. Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis will take the biggest dip in minutes with Robinson returning.

  • Wayne Ellington
    SG, New York Knicks

    Wayne Ellington (strained right ankle) was a limited participant in Saturday's practice.

    Ellington did not make an appearance in Friday's game although his tag switched from questionable to available prior game-time. His playing time is too erratic to be of use in fantasy and he wouldn't be more than three-point specialist anyway. Leave him on waivers.

    Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) did not practice on Saturday.

    The Knicks' next game will be on Monday so we should have another update on Payton by then. Ignoring his free-throw percentage, he has been an upper mid-round guy for the last couple of months so he definitely a hold for now. Frank Ntilikina picked up the start on Friday with 14 points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two triples in 32 minutes with Dennis Smith Jr. putting up three points, six assists and two steals in 16 minutes as the backup.

    Mitchell Robinson (sprained left ankle) did not practice on Saturday.

    Robinson has been all over the injury report this season with a variety of ailments but has been able to play through them for the most part. The Knicks next game is on Monday so we should have another update by then. If Robinson cannot play, Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis will likely soak up most of his minutes.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina started and led the Knicks in minutes with 32 on Friday, adding 14 points (5-for-11 shooting), two triples, two rebounds, two assists and two steals as the Knicks fell 98-106 to the Pacers.

    Ntilikina saw extra time with Elfrid Payton out and put up a serviceable line. Look at him as a streaming source of steals and assists with some scoring while Payton is out.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    RJ Barrett scored 17 points (8-for-19 shooting), four rebounds and two assists in Friday's 98-106 loss to the pacers.

    Barrett missed all five of his three-point attempts and two of his three free-throw attempts but still did enough damage inside the arc to lead the Knicks in scoring. There really is nothing to see here as Barrett will struggle to put up relevant production even with a ton of minutes.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, New York Knicks

    Bobby Portis notched 19 points (6-for-11 shooting), six rebounds, three triples, one assist and a block across 28 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Portis was by far the leading scorer off the bench for the Knicks. Portis shouldn't factor into leagues outside of deep leagues. The next best bench player was Mitchell Robinson who had 8 points (4-for-5 shooting), eight rebounds and four blocks.

  • Maurice Harkless
    SF, New York Knicks

    Maurice Harkless will stay with the Knicks for the rest of the season and is no longer interested in seeking a buyout.

    It is pretty rare that any player wants to stay with the Knicks nowadays, but that appears to be the situation with Harkless. He's not much of a fantasy prospect, and the Knicks don't have any reason to give him major minutes. He's a deep league option for rebounds, steals and blocks.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina is likely to draw the start when the Knicks clash with the Pacers on Friday.

    With Elfrid Payton out of the lineup, Ntilikina will get the first crack at providing the Knicks with something serviceable out of the point guard position. If he is not up to the task things could quickly shift Dennis Smith Jr.'s way though. They both are streaming options while Payton is out.

  • Wayne Ellington
    SG, New York Knicks

    Wayne Ellington (strained right ankle) is available for Friday's game.

    Ellington was initially questionable. He might not be in the rotation, especially if the Knicks tilt towards playing their younger options, so his presence or absence only affects the deepest of fantasy leagues.

    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) will not play on Friday against the Pacers.

    Payton has been on fire of late so this is a tough development coming out of the All-Star break. Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith will split the point guard work for as long as Payton is out, though neither is a standard-league option. Smith has more upside as a scorer while Ntilikina might be safer as a simple steals specialist.

  • Wayne Ellington
    SG, New York Knicks

    Wayne Ellington (strained right ankle) is questionable to play on Friday.

    Ellington may not even be in the rotation if he suits up, and there are rumors that he's working towards a buyout to sign with a contender. He belongs on waivers in just about all formats.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) is questionable ahead of Friday's matchup with the Pacers.

    Payton has been absolutely rolling, and hopefully he's able to suit up and continue his positive momentum from before the All-Star break. If he's unable to play look for Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith to handle the PG minutes.
