In his first season with the Knicks, Bobby Portis played in all 66 games but saw his minutes decline from 26.0 in 2018-19 to 21.1 in the 2019-20 season.
Portis was healthy throughout the season as he didn't miss a single game for the first time in his career. He finished just outside the top-225 in 8/9-cat leagues as his stat-set leaves much to be desired. His value is derived solely from his ability to score and rebound and that didn't change in 2019-20 as he posted 10.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.0 threes with .450/.358/.763 splits. His fantasy ceiling will continue to be limited as he only posted 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.1 turnovers in 21.1 mpg. The Knicks have a $15.75M team option for Portis and it is unclear at this time whether they will choose to pick it up. Expect Portis to produce similar numbers for the Knicks or another team next season.

Bobby Portis had 20 points, six rebounds and five assists on Tuesday in a loss to the Bulls.
He's been usable over the last two weeks, nearly ranking inside the top-125 during those eight games. His production and volume is just too inconsistent for him to be trusted in fantasy formats. Portis has gotten more playing time lately and has been productive in the past with more opportunities, so he could definitely be a streaming option if you are desperate.

Bobby Portis managed to rustle up a fantasy-worthy line in Friday's loss to the Thunder, posting 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds, one steal and one block.
Portis has been up and down lately, but we've grown accustomed to that by now. Over the last couple of weeks, he's been lurking outside the top-120 value range in 9-cat, mostly buoyed by .548 shooting from the field and .875 from the line. Still, he's too erratic to be trusted in standard leagues right now, capping his appeal to 18-teamers or deeper.

Mitchell Robinson is questionable to face the Thunder on Friday as he continues to nurse a sore left hamstring.
Robinson missed his fourth game of the season on Wednesday and was able to play in 50 straight games prior. Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis are the primary beneficiaries when Robinson sits but both players have major holes in their fantasy games.

Bobby Portis turned 30 minutes off the bench into 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-4 3PT), four rebounds and one steal.
Portis was able to take advantage of Mitchell Robinson's absence tonight. If this is an extended absence, Portis could be a nice streaming option for points and rebounds.

Mitchell Robinson will not be able to play against the Jazz on Wednesday as he nurses a sore left hamstring.
Robinson has been great over the last two weeks but will be forced to miss a fourth game this season. He has been able to play in the last 50 games before Wednesday. Taj Gibson, Bobby Portis and Kevin Knox could see additional minutes with Robinson sidelined.

Taj Gibson scored eight points with 10 boards, two assists and a block on Monday.
The trio of forwards absolutely clobbered the small-ball Rockets on the glass tonight. Each of them had a solid game and took full advantage of their size, but tonight was definitely an outlier in terms of fantasy production. Bobby Portis came off the bench and scored 15 points with five boards, a steal two blocks and two triples and Julius Randle had a huge night with 16 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and a block.

Mitchell Robinson played 32 minutes off the bench on Thursday, scoring six points, grabbing eight boards and blocking three shots as the Knicks fell to the Sixers 115-106.
Robinson has really come on recently, posting nine points, 10 boards and almost four blocked shots over the last four games, good for the 20th ranked player in 9-category formats over the last week. It's not inconceivable that he could approach that output over the last month and a half of the regular season, especially if Bobby Portis continues to be uninspiring (seven points and one rebound in 22 minutes).

Taj Gibson is questionable to face the Sixers on Thursday as he deals with back spasms.
Bobby Portis will replace Gibson in the starting lineup regardless of Gibson's availability. Taj has no value outside of the deepest of leagues.

Bobby Portis will replace Taj Gibson, who is questionable, in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest vs. the Sixers.
Portis has had a nice stretch over the last three games and has streaming appeal in standard leagues. Portis' strength comes with his ability to score and rebound well.

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.

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.

Bobby Portis was ejected on Wednesday and finished the game with seven points and seven rebounds in 15 minutes.
Portis was ejected for throwing the ball at Shabazz Napier and shot 2-of-6 from the field before exiting the game. Portis has played under 20 minutes in four straight games and can be left on the waiver wire in 14-team leagues. Portis has low upside and is trending down.

Ian Begley of SNY is reporting that the Knicks have taken calls on Bobby Portis.
Portis inked a two-year, $15 million deal with the Knicks this past summer but that second season isn't fully guaranteed. Begley also adds that the Warriors have spoken with the Knicks, though we don't know what they discussed — only that Golden State is looking to trim its future tax bill. A move out of New York may help Portis reestablish his fantasy relevance. It might be a lateral move, but at least he'd have a shot at getting back into the top-150 on another team.

Bobby Portis played 27 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with 12 points (5-for-8 shooting), four rebounds, three assists and a triple.
Portis played more minutes than starters Reggie Bullock (11 points, three rebounds, one assist) and Taj Gibson (four points, five rebounds, two assists, one block). It's tough to predict which Knicks bench player will produce each night.
