Emmanuel Mudiay’s season was cut short by a left shoulder injury, but he still delivered the finest campaign of his career with 14.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.2 3-pointers per game on .446 from the field across 59 contests.
Mudiay’s biggest development was the efficiency, as his previous career-best was an ugly .388 mark. He had to battle the likes of Trey Burke, Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith Jr. for playing time but ended up winning out thanks to a combination of effectiveness and injuries to others, making 42 starts. A left shoulder strain took the wind out of his sails in January as Mudiay spent 12 straight games on the sidelines, and he’d miss the season’s final four contests with left shoulder soreness. He also missed the first six games of the year with a sprained right ankle but quickly asserted himself as one of the top guard options on the Knicks. While a top-150/205 season (in 8/9-cat) might not feel like much, it’s a big leap forward from previous seasons where Mudiay was a complete afterthought. We doubt that he’ll find such friendly circumstances for empty production next year, but it’s nice to know that he’s got this in him.

Emmanuel Mudiay (sore left shoulder) will not play again this season.
Mario Hezonja is locked into a huge finish to the season while Dennis Smith Jr. is in line for a big role off the bench. With games against the Bulls and Pistons on tap, each makes for a nice DFS play.

Emmanuel Mudiay (sore left shoulder) will miss Tuesday's game against the Bulls.
Mudiay was doubtful for Sunday and ended up missing that game, and the Knicks haven't even bothered leaving the door open for him to return tomorrow. David Fizdale was optimistic that Mudiay could play again this season so we'll see if he plays on Wednesday, but don't get your hopes up. Mario Hezonja is lined up for a huge finish while Dennis Smith Jr. should get whatever minutes Super Mario leaves behind.

Emmanuel Mudiay (sore left shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Wizards.
Mudiay was playing heavy minutes before going down and has an easy schedule for the last few games. While playing against the Wizards is unlikely, there's a chance he can return for the Bulls and Pistons.

David Fizdale is optimistic that Emmanuel Mudiay (sore left shoulder) will play again this season.
Be sure to continue to check back before each game as it seems Mudiay has a chance to return this season. Mudiay was playing 37.0 mpg over his last three and would make for a nice DFS play if he can return with games against the Wizards, Bulls and Pistons remaining.

Emmanuel Mudiay (sore left shoulder) is out for Friday's tilt against the Rockets.
The Knicks are down their top four PG's tonight. Billy Garrett and John Jenkins become value plays as they are likely to get a ton of run tonight by default. Damyean Dotson has struggled shooting the ball recently, but his stock continues to go up as the only playmaking guard left standing for the Knicks.

Emmanuel Mudiay double-doubled on Wednesday with 13 points and 10 assists to go with seven boards, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer.
Mudiay is the guy to own in New York right now as he has full control of the point guard position and is battering the box score. He went 3-for-13 from the field and 6-for-8 at the line which shouldn't surprise anyone and if you need a late push with some dimes, he's a guy worth looking into.
April 1, 2019, 10:50 pmEmmanuel Mudiay - G - New York Knicks
Emmanuel Mudiay scored 17 points on 7-of-21 shooting while adding five rebounds, four assists and two triples against the Bulls on Monday.
Mudiay is worth owning in most formats if you need counting stats and don't mind the inefficiencies that come with him. He logged 36 minutes and coach Fizdale is tightening up his rotation which means there'll be a lot of opportunity for Mudiay to beat down the box score.

Emmanuel Mudiay hit 6-of-12 from the field to finish Saturday's loss to the Heat with 24 points, two 3s, five rebounds, four assists and four turnovers in 35 minutes.
Mudiay has been a top-140 player in the past week and it's nights like this why coach David Fizdale prefers playing him over Frank Ntilikina. Although, Mudiay is just a streaming option at best for fantasy owners who need some extra scoring and assists to their team.

Emmanuel Mudiay dropped a huge line in Sunday's loss to the Clippers, scoring 26 points to go along with seven assists, six rebounds, one steal and two three points.
Mudiay was also 10-for-19 from the field and 4-for-4 from the free throw line to round out a very nice game. While it was a nice game, the Knicks play on Thursday and Saturday this upcoming week, so there should be better streaming options out there.

Emmanuel Mudiay hit 9-of-21 from the field to finish Friday's home loss to the Nuggets with 21 points, two 3s, seven rebounds, four assists, a block and three turnovers.
Mudiay has been a top-120 player in 9-cat over his last four games but has just top-180 value over the last two weeks. With only two games next week, he's nothing more than a plug-and-play for those needing inefficient points.
March 22, 2019, 5:45 pmFrank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks
Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) and Kadeem Allen (illness) will both be available to play on Friday.
Neither is a particularly inspired play playing distributor behind Emmanuel Mudiay and both can be left on the wire.

Emmanuel Mudiay started for Dennis Smith Jr. (back) again on Sunday and came through with 28 points on an uncharacterstic 8-of-11 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line.
Mudiay also added eight assists, a block and three 3-pointers. This will probably go down as his line of the season, but it certainly came at the right time for fantasy owners on the final day of a playoff matchup. Expect Mudiay to keep starting while Smith is out. He's worth an add on the heels of this performance, but isn't necessarily a must-add if you're wary of his efficiency. He's gone on hot streaks before but one game is a lot to pin your hopes on.

Emmanuel Mudiay went 6-for-14 from the field to finish Friday's loss to the Spurs with 14 points, four rebounds, two 3s and two assists.
Mudiay started for an injured Dennis Smith Jr. (sore lower back) but has been widely inconsistent and disappointing with value outside the top-200 over the last couple of weeks. He's a marginal hold even with the Knicks' four games next week.
