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.

Kevin Knox had a rare multi-cat performance on Sunday night, putting up 16 points, seven rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer.
Knox's stat set remains poor, and even despite the solid counting numbers here he went 5-of-14 from the field and 5-of-8 from the line. We're skeptical of his short-term future as a fantasy asset, especially if the Knicks can get everything on their shopping list this summer. Points-leaguers can enjoy the final two games of his season, however.

Kevin Knox scored 13 points in Friday’s loss to the Rockets but struggled with his shot, hitting just 5-of-14 from the field and 2-of-7 from the line.
Knox added a trey, five rebounds and two turnovers in 31 minutes and his lack of peripheral stats combined with awful efficiency leaves him at an even top-300 value for the season so far in 9-cat. He’s only been marginally better since the break (top-250ish) and will have to work on his game a ton if he hopes to have a larger impact in real-life and in fantasy. Lance Thomas chipped in 10 points, a triple and four rebounds in 19 minutes.

Kevin Knox scored 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting with four rebounds, an assist, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers on Wednesday.
Knox had a rare efficient shooting night and he also added some defense for good measure, but he's still nothing more than a points and triples player.
April 1, 2019, 10:49 pmKevin Knox - F - New York Knicks
Kevin Knox scored 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting while adding nine rebounds, three assists and two triples on Monday.
Knox continues to fill the role of scorer for the Knicks, but he still can't get it done efficiently which makes him a tough fantasy play. He logged 40 minutes tonight and Mario Hezonja was a DNP-CD so it's safe to say you can use Knox if you don't mind the drag on your percentages.

Kevin Knox put up 16 points, one rebound, two 3s and one steal on 7-of-16 shooting from the field on Saturday against the Heat.
Knox has only been a scoring option for much of this year and doesn't exactly help fantasy owners in other categories. He's not a must-own fantasy player and is a streaming option for points at best.

Kevin Knox (sprained right ankle) put up nine points, three rebounds, a steal, two blocks and two triples on 3-of-10 from the field on Thursday.
It was good to see Knox on the court after getting hurt on Sunday. His well-rounded production in this one is very much an outlier, and he's only an option in points leagues at this point. Mario Hezonja got benched after deciding not to contest a 3-pointer and finished his night with eight points and four rebounds in 21 minutes. There's not a lot to like about this roster (for fantasy purposes, at least) outside of the center spot.

Kevin Knox (sprained right ankle) will play on Thursday against the Raptors.
All signs pointed to Knox starting Thursday and this news confirms it. Look for him to fire away as the Knicks want to see what they have in their young talent with nothing to play for.

The Knicks are listing Kevin Knox (sprained right ankle) as questionable for Thursday's game against the Raptors after Knox participated in practice on Wednesday.
It looks like Knox has a real chance of playing on Thursday. The matchup isn't great for Knox, but he has averaged 19 ppg and 2.7 treys over the last week. Be sure to check back in on his status closer to tip-off.

Kevin Knox (sprained right ankle) participated in non-contact drills on Tuesday but is still looking unlikely for Thursday's game against the Raptors.
Knox doesn't look like he will miss too much time if any, but any missed time this late in the season hurts. If Knox can't go, Mario Hezonja would see even more minutes, while Lance Thomas and Noah Vonleh, if he can return, could see some more time as well.

Kevin Knox (sprained right ankle) is being considered day-to-day after leaving Sunday's game vs. the Clippers late in the second quarter.
This is great news for Knox and the Knicks in general and coach David Fizdale said that this injury isn't thought to be as severe as the ankle injury that held him out for multiple weeks earlier in the season. The Knicks only have nine games left so they'll be cautious with him, but it seems like Sunday's game won't be the last we see of Knox this season.

Kevin Knox (sprained right ankle) won't return to Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.
Knox has been ruled out for the remainder of the game and with only nine games left this might be the last we see of Knox for the rest of the season. Missing Knox will definitely help the Knicks' efforts to tank but stay tuned for updates regarding the severity of the sprain.
