    Isaiah Hicks has signed with Russia's Avtodor Saratov.

    Hicks appeared in 18 games with the Knicks as a rookie but only played in three games last season and spent Summer League with the Hornets. We should see his name resurface on the NBA radar next summer.

    Isaiah Hicks led the Hornets in Wednesday's Summer League loss, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds and three steals.

    Hicks only appeared in three games for the Knicks last season and was let go without any fanfare. He was once thought to be a player that the team was interested in developing, which seems like the kiss of death in New York. Hicks shouldn't have many issues landing in the G-League this year.

    Isaiah Hicks (sore left hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Wizards.

    Hicks isn't out for the season yet, but he's unlikely to play much even if he is active.

    Isaiah Hicks (sore left hip) has been ruled out of Wednesday's matchup with the Magic.

    Hicks was doubtful yesterday and hasn't played in an NBA game since February 8. Even with silly season upon us, Hicks isn't in the equation.

    Isaiah Hicks (sore left hip) has been upgraded to doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Hicks hasn't played in a game since February 8, and he only played four minutes in that one. He can be ignored in the deepest of leagues.

    The Knicks have signed Isaiah Hicks and Allonzo Trier to two-way contracts, the team has announced.

    Hicks was with New York on a two-way deal and returns again. He played in 18 games for the Knicks and in 37 games for the team's G-League squad. Trier is an undrafted guard out of Arizona. Both will play in Summer League.

    According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Knicks have a "strong interest" in re-signing restricted free agent Isaiah Hicks.

    Since he's restricted, the Knicks have the right to match any offer that is given to Hicks and it sounds like they plan to do so. Hicks played 18 games for the Knicks in his rookie season and averaged 4.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 13.2 minutes. It's highly unlikely that a team offers him something outrageous so the Knicks don't really have anything to lose with matching whatever offer he receives. With Kristaps Porzingis presumably out until after the All-Star break, the Knicks will need some front court depth that make up for all of the minutes they play Porzingis.

    The New York Knicks have announced two-way player Isaiah Hicks will play in the 2018 Summer League.

    Hicks played in 37 games in the 2017-18 G-League after going undrafted in last year's draft. He put up 15.6 points, eight rebounds, two blocks, and 0.8 steals in 29.5 minutes in the G-League, but only appeared in 18 NBA games. Hicks will most likely be joined by many other young bigs which could include first round pick Kevin Knox, second round pick Mitchell Robinson, and fellow 2017 un-draftee Luke Kornet.

  • Kyle O'Quinn

    It "sounds like" Kyle O'Quinn will be probable for Saturday's matchup with the Pistons.

    O'Quinn is dealing with a hip issue but should be good to go in a matchup with Detroit. He could be looking at huge minutes as well with Enes Kanter doubtful, but the Knicks have spread more work around to their other younger frontcourt options so it's not as much of a slam dunk as it might seem on the surface. Still, assuming KOQ suits up tomorrow, you almost have to give him a look with Kanter out of commission. He's only needed minutes in the high teens or low twenties to produce enough rebounds, assists and blocks to be worthwhile.

  • Enes Kanter
    PF/C, New York Knicks

    Enes Kanter (back/wrist) is doubtful ahead of Saturday's game.

    Kanter has been pretty consistent this season even amidst a changing rotation in New York, so this is a big inconvenience for his fantasy owners. Kyle O'Quinn should see extra work assuming he's healthy himself, while young players Luke Kornet and Isaiah Hicks should get nice run. Kornet started the last time Kanter was out and makes for a fun stream as a guy who can produce rebounds, blocks and 3-pointers.

    The Knicks have sent Isaiah Hicks and Damyean Dotson to G-League Westchester for Friday’s game against Erie.

    The duo was named as part of the young group that the Knicks would like to look at down the stretch, but apparently that won’t come tonight when New York takes on Minnesota. Both players are worth knowing in 30-team leagues and could climb the ladder if the Knicks stay true to their word but you shouldn’t be counting on them for anything.

    SF/PF, New York Knicks

    Lance Thomas is out for Friday’s game as he is not with the team for personal reasons.

    This will be four of the last five games that Thomas will be out. In his absence, Michael Beasley should draw another start with Isaiah Hicks and Troy Williams getting minutes off the bench. Beasley is the only one that holds any fantasy value with Thomas out and he has returned mid-round value over the past two weeks. You can fire him up as long as Thomas is not playing.

  • Luke Kornet

    Giving Isaiah Hicks and Luke Kornet double-digit minutes the rest of the way is now an aim for the Knicks who were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention for a fifth straight year on Monday night.

    The team will audition Hicks and Kornet in the remaining games of the season in order to figure out if they have found a reliable big man in any of them. Hicks is a four-year player who advanced to two straight NCAA Championship games and went undrafted in June despite being a key cog on the Tar Heels’ championship squad. The Knicks have liked his basketball IQ and his quick grasp of learning but he needs to improve his deep jumper and become a more mobile defender in space. Another priority is evaluating rookie center Kornet, also on a two-way contract and already advertised as a stretch big man. His 3-pointer hasn’t fallen as much as needed as he is shooting just 28.6 percent from deep in 10 appearances. Both players should be on your radar as streaming options since the team might opt to start them giving the occasional night off to veterans like Enes Kanter and Kyle O’Quinn.

    Lance Thomas (sprained thumb) will be back in action when the Knicks host the Mavs on Tuesday.

    Thomas missed Sunday’s game with the injury, allowing the recently-maligned Michael Beasley to start in his place. Beas responded with an empty double-double and could return to the bench tonight. He’s the power forward of choice here for fantasy owners but you’re banking on an unexpected scoring outburst if you roll with him at this point. Thomas’ availability will likely bump rookie Isaiah Hicks from the rotation.

    Lance Thomas was able to practice in a limited fashion on Monday.

    A sprained thumb cost Thomas Sunday’s game and allowed Michael Beasley to draw the start. He picked up a hollow double-double but did manage to play a long time on five fouls without picking up number six, so credit where credit is due. Rookie Isaiah Hicks also got some playing time as a result. None of the three are fantasy options at the moment but Beasley is the best of the bunch if you have to make a move. Just know that he’ll probably head back to the bench when Thomas is ready to return. For the record, he’s questionable ahead of Tuesday’s game.
