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.

Emmanuel Mudiay and Lance Thomas will start on Friday vs. the Spurs.
Mudiay will be starting for Dennis Smith Jr. (sore back) while Lance Thomas will start for Noah Vonleh, who’ll head to the bench in this contest. Mudiay is a nice play in DFS if your lineup hasn’t locked.

Emmanuel Mudiay had a full line, including 21 points, four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes off the bench vs. Pacers.
Mudiay has stayed fantasy-relevant off the bench, often outperforming Dennis Smith Jr., who had just seven points in 25 minutes tonight.

Emmanuel Mudiay (strained left shoulder) returned from a 12-game absence on Friday and showed no signs of rust as he delivered 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting and a full line.
The .375 shooting clip from the field was nasty but that's par for the course with Mudiay. It was a pleasant surprise to see him fill up the box score as he added six rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers, three steals and a block to his line for the night. The Knicks' rotations have been a hot mess all season, so don't bank on Mudiay to deliver this kind of spread in the next one.

Coach David Fizdale said that he's open to Emmanuel Mudiay (shoulder) and Dennis Smith Jr. together in the backcourt.
This would make for an interesting albeit the most inefficient scoring backcourt in the league. Even if Mudiay does share the floor with DSJ, he's not going to bring enough fantasy juice to worth an add outside of very deep leagues.

Emmanuel Mudiay (strained left shoulder) will return to the lineup on Friday against the Wolves.
Mudiay won't be usurping Dennis Smith Jr.'s starting role, so he'll likely have to settle for battling with Frank Ntilikina for backup minutes. He's safe to cut in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.

Emmanuel Mudiay (strained left shoulder) is unsure of how he'll fit into the rotation when he returns from his injury.
Mudiay was locked in as the starting point guard but Dennis Smith Jr. has since joined the team. Beyond that, Mudiay is also an impending free agent whose cap hold will be renounced if the Knicks do deliver on their wildest dreams and land two max free agents. He's not going to be a priority for the rest of the season, and a timeshare seems like the best-case scenario here. Mudiay isn't worth holding onto outside of very deep leagues.

Emmanuel Mudiay (strained left shoulder) will not play on Thursday.
Mudiay was doubtful for Wednesday's game before sitting and didn't even get that tag on a back-to-back. We'll see if he's ready out of the break.

Emmanuel Mudiay (strained left shoulder) will not play against the Sixers on Wednesday.
As expected, with Mudiay previously listed as doubtful. He's safe to drop in most formats with Dennis Smith Jr. locked into the starting point guard role.
February 12, 2019, 5:52 pmEmmanuel Mudiay - G - New York Knicks
Emmanuel Mudiay (strained left shoulder) is doubtful for Wednesday against the Sixers.
No real news here, though it is technically an upgrade. Mudiay figures to be a deep-league option now that Dennis Smith Jr. is in New York, so you can move comfortably on unless you're in a 16-teamer.
January 31, 2019, 5:07 pmEmmanuel Mudiay - G - New York Knicks
Emmanuel Mudiay will likely become a full-time backup when he returns from his left shoulder strain following the acquisition of Dennis Smith Jr.
Mudiay had a nice run, but it's probably over unless the Knicks decided to go pure salary dump and don't care at all about what Smith can do. He might be worth holding onto in deeper formats because you can never predict what the Knicks will do, but anyone who was holding him through the injury in 12- or 14-team leagues can probably cut bait.
