    Bobby Portis (left rib contusion) has been cleared to play on Friday.

    Portis was initially probable so this isn't a surprise. He's fine to use in DFS if you feel so inclined.

    Bobby Portis (contused left rib) is probable to face the Wizards on Friday after logging a full practice on Thursday.

    Portis should slot back in as the first big man off the bench for the Knicks and could push for 20 plus minutes per game. The frontcourt is crowded, but Portis is a name to keep in mind for deeper leagues.

    Bobby Portis was a limited participant in practice as he battles through bruised ribs.

    Kadeem Allen was able to return to practice after dealing with a strained right foot. Portis missed Monday's preseason action, but this issue doesn't seem too serious. The Knicks have a pretty crowded frontcourt, so Portis could have less fantasy value than he did last season.

    Bobby Portis (bruised left rib) will miss Monday's preseason game.

    That should open up more minutes for someone like Taj Gibson, should the Knicks want to push him into extended preseason action. Julius Randle's floor also becomes safer, if you're playing DFS tonight. Portis should be alright moving forward.

    According to Marc Berman of the NY Post, Bobby Portis will be coming off the bench and the Knicks will look to start Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson.

    Portis envisions himself to be a Sixth Man of the Year candidate. He averaged 14.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 39.3 percent from 3-point range last year but may find it difficult to improve on those numbers with Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, Marcus Morris and Taj Gibson also competing for minutes in the front court. Randle and Robinson are expected to take the bulk of the minutes as the starters.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    The Knicks have officially announced the signings of Julius Randle, Wayne Ellington, Taj Gibson, Elfrid Payton and Bobby Portis on Tuesday.

    Randle is expected to start at PF as the big-ticket free agent signing, while Payton will compete for a starting job and Portis should see a hefty dose of backup minutes at the four and five. Ellington had a strong finish with the Pistons and could compete for a starting wing job. Coach David Fizdale was pretty unpredictable with his rotations last year, but we can't imagine Taj Gibson taking too many minutes away from the trio of Portis, Randle and Mitchell Robinson.

    Bobby Portis has agreed to a two-year, $31 million deal with the Knicks.

    New York drafted Kevin Knox last season but decided to spend a combined $94 million on five years of Julius Randle and Bobby Portis tonight. The newcomers may handle some backup center minutes but Randle and Portis figure to cut into each other's minutes, and therefore fantasy value, at the four spot. Portis was said to be looking for $16 million annually and this will certainly fit the bill. We'll see what his minutes look like once the games begin, but it's not a great spot for fantasy value given the other bodies in New York's frontcourt. The Wizards will rescind their qualifying offer, allowing Portis to head to the Knicks as an unrestricted free agent.

    Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis are unlikely to return to the Wizards, per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

    And with that, the Wizards dealt Otto Porter for nothing but cap space and a second-rounder in 2023. There were earlier reports that the Wizards wanted to work on a new deal with Parker but apparently they will let him leave in free agency. Washington has no forward depth to speak of at the moment, and we could be seeing a ton of rookies Rui Hachimura and Admiral Schofield this season.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    Tony Jones of The Athletic is reporting that the Jazz will meet with Bojan Bogdanovic on Sunday afternoon.

    The Jazz have emerged as a major player in the Bogdanovic market, and they have since shelved their scheduled meeting with Bobby Portis until they get some resolution with Bogdanovic. Bogdanovic is coming off a career year where he shot 49.7 percent from the field and 42.5 percent from deep, and his addition would make the Jazz a much more dangerous team on either end of the floor.

    In addition to the Wizards, Jazz and Knicks, the Clippers are another team showing significant interest in Bobby Portis according to Alex Kennedy of Hoopshype.

    The 24 year old big man has been a hot commodity on the market, and is searching for a contract in the $16 million range. The Clippers are likely to not make any sort of move until they know what is happening with Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant, and with Portis already expected to hold meetings on day one of free agency, they may not get the opportunity to get in a room with him.

    Bobby Portis will meet with the Jazz when free agency opens, per Tony Jones of The Athletic.

    About 10 days ago Jones also reported that Portis has "significant interest" in joining the Jazz, and he would give the team a more dynamic look out of the four spot than incumbent Derrick Favors. He's said to be looking for $16 million annually and is also receiving interest from the Knicks, among others. Portis put together a career year last season and is looking to parlay that into a larger role with a bigger paycheck.

    The Knicks are interested in young bigs like Bobby Portis and Julius Randle should they miss out on the top tier free agents, per SNY's Ian Begley.

    The interest in Randle is well-known at this point, with other reports indicating that the interest is mutual. Portis is said to be looking for $16 million in free agency, and if the Knicks miss out on the top dogs and find themselves with $70 million to spend they could certainly outdo most other bidders for Portis. New York does not want to lock up long-term deals with anyone other than superstars, but a heavy, short-term commitment would be awfully appealing. Begley also confirms that the Knicks have some interest in DeMarcus Cousins, but it sounds as though they're prioritizing younger players if they strike out with the superstars.

    Tony Jones and Fred Katz of The Athletic are reporting Bobby Portis is looking for as much as $16 million in free agency and has interest from multiple teams.

    According to Jones and Katz, the Wizards aren't expected to match a huge offer sheet on Portis. As a restricted free agent, the Wiz declining to match would allow him to go elsewhere. The Utah Jazz have been a team at the top of the list on the rumor mill. Portis averaged 14.3 points and 8.6 rebounds in 28 games for the Wiz last season.

    According to Tony Jones of The Athletic, Bobby Portis has "significant interest" joining the Jazz.

    Jones is the top Jazz writer on the circuit, so this is worth taking seriously. Portis put together a solid finish to his season with Washington and wound up with borderline top-100 value, and the Jazz have a big opening at the four spot with Derrick Favors potentially headed elsewhere and Jae Crowder just traded to Memphis. Portis would give the team some balance, offering more shooting and mobility than Favors with more rebounding than Crowder. There are surely more suitors out there, but it would be a good fit if BP does indeed end up in Utah.

    Bobby Portis, who will likely become a restricted free agent after the Wizards extend a qualifying offer, is expected to be pursued by at least 5-10 teams once free agency begins.

    Among the teams that are reportedly interested in Portis are the Lakers, Clippers, Jazz, Bucks, Magic and the Knicks among others. If the Wizards extend the $3.6 million qualifying offer to Portis, they will have the chance to match any contract offer Portis receives from another team.
