    Kevin Knox (sore right calf) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks after returning to practice on Tuesday.

    Knox returns to a crowded forward rotation where he is expected to slot in as the backup SF behind Marcus Morris. After a disappointing rookie year, Knox is off the standard-league radar.

    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 (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.

    Kevin Knox (strained right calf) and Wayne Ellington (illness) are questionable to play the Wizards in Friday's preseason matchup.

    Knox is only 20 years old and still has room to grow, but he is expected to come off the bench and doesn't project to see enough time to meaningfully contribute to a fantasy team. Ellington is also slotting back to a reserve role after starting for the Pistons in the second half of last season.

    Kevin Knox did not practice on Wednesday due to a right calf strain.

    Knox had a reasonable game on Monday against the Wizards, but the Knicks are playing it safe with his calf. Amir Hinton (groin) and Wayne Ellington (illness) also did not practice.

    Kevin Knox came off the bench and played 29 minutes on Monday in a 104-99 win over the Wizards, putting up 12 points (5-of-12 FGs), seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Knox may have gotten a few extra minutes with Marcus Morris's early exit, but this is a performance with which fantasy players can get on board. Knox struggled mightily from the field last season. He just turned 20, though, so there's still plenty of room to grow. He just might not grow enough this season to matter in fantasy.

    Coach Fizdale told the Knicks players that no starters have been determined and players had to earn their minutes.

    Kevin Knox will battle with veteran Marcus Morris for the starting small forward spot. Knox has been working on getting his body stronger to be able to take on more contact on drives to the basket. Last season as a rookie, he averaged 12.8 points on a putrid 37 percent from the field. Knox will look to get more looks closer to the basket and increase his field goal percentage to more respectable levels. Knox provided little else outside of points and rebounds last season and will need to improve his shooting and defense to be considered a standard-league player.

    Kevin Knox shot poorly on Saturday, going 3-for-9 from the field and 7-for-12 from the line but was able to score 15 points and chip in across the board.

    He added four rebounds, five dimes, two triples, two steals and two blocks to complete his line for the night. Knox has always been an intriguing talent. However, until he figures out to score more efficiently and regularly his ceiling in fantasy will have a hard cap.

    Kevin Knox put up 25 points on 7-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds in 24 minutes in a win over the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Knox had his best game of the Summer League thus far as he efficiently dropped 25 points. He made two triples and also added three assists to the box score. Knox is a key piece for the Knicks' NBA squad, so it would not be a surprise to see him rest the next game after this dominant outing.

    Kevin Knox made just three of his 15 field goal attempts in a Summer League loss on Tuesday.

    Knox did shoot 8-for-11 from the line to get to 15 points at least. He added a three, two steals, five rebounds and one assists in 30 minutes. With the Knicks starting three key pieces of their NBA squad in Summer League, you'd expect to see a better team performance, but there have certainly been some struggles.

    Kevin Knox scored 17 points on 6-for-12 shooting to go along with eight rebounds, three 3s and two blocks on Friday night.

    The hot shooting was quite encouraging, especially after recent reports that he's been spending extra time honing his game in recent weeks. It's a shame this game was cut short due to an earthquake because Knox was feeling it.

    Knicks coach David Fizdale revealed that he spent all of last week with Kevin Knox in the team’s practice facility working on elements of the forward’s game.

    The 19-year-old Knox experienced ups and downs as the second-youngest player in the NBA, with strength and defense becoming the biggest issues as the season progressed. Knox shot poorly both from the field and from the charity line and his fantasy game has plenty of holes, but it’s good to see him committed to taking the next step.

    Kevin Knox started and played 28 minutes in Wednesday's season finale against the Pistons, scoring nine points and grabbing seven rebounds on 3-of-12 shooting

    That line sort of encapsulates Knox's season. He had some post-draft hype leading into fantasy drafts this year, and as a result wound up on the end of several team’s benches in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. He didn’t quite live up to expectations, however, ending his rookie campaign with top-270/300 value (8-cat/9-cat) due in large part to his very poor shooting percentages (.371 FG, .716 FT). He showed chops as a scorer with 12.7 points and 1.7 3-pointers per game, but beyond that left a lot of holes in his fantasy game. He is also at risk of losing his starting job from numerous different angles (Durant or Zion come to mind), making him potentially a tough sell on draft day.

    Kevin Knox put up 17 points and 10 rebounds while shooting 4-of-8 from three-point land against the Bulls on Tuesday.

    Knox didn’t provide any defensive stats, but it was nice to see him crash the boards against a depleted Bulls team. Knox will look to finish the season on a high note in Wednesday’s season finale against the Pistons before the Knicks try to make a splash in free agency this summer.
