    SF, New York Knicks

    RJ Barrett played just 14 minutes on Thursday against the Suns due to a right ankle injury, scoring seven points.

    Barrett's injury was a big blow to what has been his best run of the season. He has been a late-round value over the last couple weeks as his scoring output has ticked up. We'll see if he'll miss time, in which case Damyean Dotson and Frank Ntilikina could have more of an impact. Dotson had six points in 26 minutes and Ntilikina had two points (1-of-7 shooting) to go with six assists and three defensive counters in 24 minutes.

    RJ Barrett won't return to Thursday's game against the Suns after suffering a right ankle injury.

    We'll have to see what the severity is for Barrett's injury. If he is forced to miss time, we may see an uptick in minutes for Damyean Dotson and Frank Ntilikina.

    Frank Ntilikina will face the Suns on Thursday despite dealing with a sore groin.

    Ntilikina should not be rostered in standard leagues at this time as he is providing per-game value just below the top-200. He does have a consistent role as the backup point guard to Elfrid Payton and can be deployed in a 18-team league.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is questionable for Thursday's contest.

    Kadeem Allen played 24 minutes with Ntilikina out on Tuesday. Ntilikina is a fine defender but he holds only limited fantasy value.

    The Knicks have recalled Ignas Brazdeikis from the G League.

    With Marcus Morris injured and Frank Ntilikina missing Tuesday's game, Brazdeikis was a logical recall. He has averaged 19.8 points and 7.3 rebounds for Westchester. However, his role is unlikely to be fantasy relevant in the short run.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    With Ntilikina officially ruled out, Elfrid Payton will be looking at all the run that he can handle. Kadeem Allen and Damyean Dotson are also on hand to get extra minutes off the bench.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is being listed as doubtful to play against the Bucks on Tuesday.

    With Ntilikina likely to join Dennis Smith Jr. in street clothes on the bench, Elfrid Payton is looking at all the minutes he can handle, while Kadeem Allen and Damyean Dotson see a few extra minutes off the bench.

    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    It looks like Ntilikina will end up just missing the one game he sat out over the weekend. With Dennis Smith Jr. (left oblique strain) out indefinitely, Ntilikina has been playing almost 19 minutes per game as the backup point guard. He currently only has value in deep leagues.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Heat.

    A Knicks PR tweet listed the French Prince as out minutes before the official NBA injury report listed him as probable. We should get more clarity closer to game time, but it looks like Ntilikina will be held out of this one. Elfrid Payton will have all of the PG minutes to himself.

    PG, New York Knicks

    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.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    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
    PG, New York Knicks

    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.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton (personal) is en route to join the Knicks in Phoenix but his status for Friday is uncertain.

    Whether or not Payton will appear in the game is still up in the air, but it sounds like he will be back soon enough. If he is still out Frank Ntilikina could be in for big minutes as Dennis Smith Jr. is questionable with a left oblique strain.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    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.

    Frank Ntilikina teased owners with nine points (3-of-5 shooting), 10 assists, three rebounds, one 3-pointers, one steal and two blocks in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

    Ntilikina was the beneficiary of the Blazers throwing in the towel in the fourth quarter, so don't get too excited. Elfrid Payton, who remains the PG to own out of New York, was quiet in 25 minutes with four points (2-of-9 FGs, 0-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, eight assists and two blocks.
