    Dennis Smith Jr. (left oblique strain) has no timetable for a return.

    Smith says he's doing well, claiming "I heard with oblique strains, it can be two months. I’m actually coming along fast. I’m going through the process. I’m feeling better. The good thing about it is I’m making progress." That's all well and good but two months is a pretty long timetable, and even if he's ahead of that then we're looking at potentially another month on the shelf. He's been a partial participant in recent practices but the Knicks obviously have no intention of rushing him back. DSJ has missed the last nine games and is not close to the fantasy radar.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (strained left oblique) has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

    Smith is also the subject of contradicting injury reports coming out of New York, but given his place in the rotation, it's easier to believe that he'll sit this one out. Smith has fallen out of favor with the Knicks' coaching staff and is off the radar in fantasy.

    Dennis Smith Jr. will not play against the Pelicans on Friday as he continues to recover from a strained oblique.

    Smith Jr. is not fantasy relevant at this time as he is the third string point guard in the Knicks' rotation even when he is healthy enough to take the floor.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (strained oblique) is officially questionable for Friday's matchup vs. the Pelicans.

    Until Smith Jr. can lock down consistent minutes in the point guard rotation, he can be ignored from a fantasy perspective. It is clear that both Elfrid Payton and Frank Ntilikina are ahead of him on the depth chart.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (oblique) is out for Wednesday's game.

    The oblique strain has kept Smith jr. out for a week and change now. He's a drop even in 20-team leagues.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (left oblique strain) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    Reggie Bullock started at point guard on Tuesday while Frank Ntilikina got the nod on Sunday. Even if Smith is ready to go, how many minutes he gets is anyone's guess.

    Marcus Morris (sore neck) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Lakers.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (left oblique) has also been ruled out. Morris was able to drop 38 points on Sunday night so this is some poor timing. Look for more Kevin Knox in LA tonight, though it'll be Reggie Bullock who draws the start. Bullock's the more interesting fantasy guy, too.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (strained left oblique) is questionable to face the Lakers on Tuesday.

    With Elfrid Payton also questionable, Frank Ntilikina may be the last man standing at point guard for the Knicks. So far, Smith is not making anyone in Gotham City forget about Kristaps Porzingis.

    Elfrid Payton (personal) is considered questionable for Tuesday against the Lakers.

    Payton has been spending time with his newborn daughter. Frank Ntilikina could see a lot of minutes if Payton and Dennis Smith Jr. cannot play. Owning a point guard on the Knicks has been a real headache this season.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (left oblique strain) will not suit up in Sunday's matchup vs. the Clippers.

    Both DSJ and Elfrid Payton are set to miss this game so Frank Ntilikina should be in for a big workload. This is DSJ's fifth straight missed game and he has never really found his footing this season. He'd need to be traded in order to regain some value.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (left oblique strain) is questionable to play on Sunday.

    Smith was questionable but ended up sitting out. He's missed the last four games and it would take a trade or two to get him back on the fantasy map.

    Dennis Smith Jr. (strained left oblique) is being listed as questionable to play against the Suns on Friday.

    Elfrid Payton (personal) is also being listed as questionable for this one, and there would be some extra minutes available if Smith can suit up. Frank Ntilikina would be staring at all the minutes he can handle if both Smith and Payton can't play on Friday.

    Elfrid Payton (personal) is being listed as questionable ahead of Friday's game against the Suns.

    No information was provided other than it is a personal reason, so we hope all is well with Payton. Dennis Smith Jr. (oblique) is also questionable for this one. If neither can go, Frank Ntilikina would be looking at all the minutes he can handle at PG.

    Dennis Smith Jr. will not play against the Blazers on Wednesday as he continues to recover from an oblique injury.

    With DSJ ruled out, expect Elfrid Payton and Frank Ntilikina to handle the point guard duties while Payton has become the most valuable guard on the Knicks' roster.
