  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pacers.

    Ntilikina was initially listed as probable for Saturday after missing Tuesday's game but it appears he has endured a setback. This will be a good opportunity for Dennis Smith who is likely to get the start with Elfrid Payton serving his one-game suspension while Kadeem Allen will serve as the backup.

    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.

    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.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton was the only one of New York's three main point guards available on Sunday but didn't do too much with the opportunity, posting 10 points, four rebounds, five assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

    That's not a bad line by any means but it is a mild letdown considering the circumstances. Payton should be a fine low-end option in standard leagues as long as he's the clear starter for the Knicks. Kadeem Allen took over the backup work today and had 10 points, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in 17 minutes off the bench.

  • Kenny Wooten
    PF, New York Knicks

    The Knicks are considering calling up Kenny Wooten from the Westchester Knicks but would first need to make room on their active roster.

    Wooten has been gaining steam lately by averaging 3.7 blocks on only 23 minutes per game on the minor league squad. They would need to waive some active players or open up one of their two-way contract slots prior to January 15th. Marc Berman sees Ivan Rabb or Kadeem Allen getting the axe, but he also suspects Allonzo Trier's roster spot could be in jeopardy. In any case, Wooten would remain well off the fantasy radar despite his ability to pluck floaters right off the air, but their Jan. 15th roster churn may be worth monitoring since their players would benefit from more stable rotations moving forward.

  • Allonzo Trier
    PG, New York Knicks

    Allonzo Trier (concussion) has been ruled out of his next two games vs. the Kings and Nuggets.

    He was doubtful just a couple of hours ago but it looks like the Knicks are going to play things safe with him. Kadeem Allen is being summoned to play in the game vs. the Knicks with Trier and Wayne Ellington also out.

  • Kadeem Allen
    SG, New York Knicks

    Kadeem Allen will remain sidelined when the Knicks face the Magic on Wednesday, as he is still dealing with a sore right knee.

    Allen is missing on a huge opportunity to get some playing time with Elfrid Payton injured and Dennis Smith Jr. away from the team with a personal issue. He is nowhere close to being fantasy relevant right now.

  • Kadeem Allen
    SG, New York Knicks

    Kadeem Allen (sore right knee) is listed as out on the injury report for Saturday's game against Boston.

    Details of Allen's current knee injury are unknown after he missed the preseason with a strained right foot. After a guest appearance on the fantasy radar toward the end of last season, he will have a hard time finding playing time even when healthy with a slew of players in front on him on the depth chart at the moment.

  • Damyean Dotson
    SG, New York Knicks

    Damyean Dotson (right shoulder surgery), Kadeem Allen (foot) and Allonzo Trier (neck) are all available for Wednesday's preseason game against the Hawks.

    It is good to see guys getting healthy in time for the start of the regular season. Although all three of these players had roles for the Knicks at times last season, it is very difficult to project any of them as having value outside of very deep leagues this upcoming season.

  • Kadeem Allen
    SG, New York Knicks

    Kadeem Allen is questionable to face the Hawks on Wednesday due to a strained right foot.

    Allen has been fighting this injury for much of training camp. Allen showed some good range last season, but how much playing time he gets going forward is in question.

  • Kevin Knox
    SF, New York Knicks

    Kevin Knox (sore right calf) was a limited practice participant for the second straight day on Monday.

    Kadeem Allen (right foot strain) was also limited again. The Knicks have a lot of forwards and will be able to deal with it if Knox misses time, though it's not ideal for a second-year player who has already lost his starting job. Although David Fizdale mused about Knox playing some shooting guard this year, it would take a major rotation shakeup to get him near the standard-league radar.

  • Kevin Knox
    SF, New York Knicks

    Kevin Knox (strained right calf) was a limited participant in Sunday's practice.

    Kadeem Allen (right foot strain) was also limited. It appears as though Knox will come off the bench behind Marcus Morris this season, so he's only going to be a fantasy option in deep points leagues. We wouldn't expect this injury to affect his regular season availability, of course.

  • Kadeem Allen
    SG, New York Knicks

    The Knicks have ruled Kadeem Allen (strained right foot), Kenny Wooten (sprained left ankle) and Amir Hinton (strained right groin) out of Friday's preseason game.

    While Allen had some nice moments at the end of last season, the fantasy impact is minimal. DFS players will at least have a clearer sense of which Knicks to play tonight.

    Bobby Portis was a limited participant in practice as he battles through bruised ribs.

    Kadeem Allen was able to return to practice after dealing with a strained right foot. Portis missed Monday's preseason action, but this issue doesn't seem too serious. The Knicks have a pretty crowded frontcourt, so Portis could have less fantasy value than he did last season.

  • Kadeem Allen
    SG, New York Knicks

    Kadeem Allen (strained right foot) will not play in Monday's preseason game versus the Wizards.

    The injury has been cloudy and there is still no concrete timetable for Allen's return. The Knicks are crowded in their backcourt regardless and Allen should not be drafted in year long leagues.
