Ian Begley is reporting that the Knicks are expected to waive Lance Thomas in hopes of re-signing him at a discounted price.
Thomas is due to make $7.6 million next season but only $1 million is guaranteed so this is the obvious move to free up more cap space. Thomas played 46 games for the Knicks last year with only 4.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 17.0 minutes but his, “leadership and professionalism is held in high regard in the organization and he is respected for his mentorship to younger players.”

Lance Thomas finished the season with a DNP-CD in Wednesday's blowout against Detroit.
Thomas, who for what it's worth, is New York's longest tenured player, and has probably overseen far more losing than any player should. He got on the floor for 46 games this year, and was outside the top-400 in value. He's not on the fantasy radar in any format.

Lance Thomas (personal) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.
Thomas missed Tuesday's game. He isn't a factor in fantasy, but we hope all is well with him.

Lance Thomas (personal) will miss Tuesday's game against the Bulls.
The Knicks have been working on their silly season lineups since December so Thomas has been in and out of the rotation for most of the year. There's no need to monitor his status in fantasy.

April 5, 2019, 10:35 pmKevin Knox - F - New York Knicks
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.

Noah Vonleh sprained his right ankle and will not return to Friday’s game vs. the Spurs.
Lance Thomas and John Jenkins will get more minutes at the four but neither is an especially appealing add for fantasy.

The Knicks shuffled their starting lineup once again and Noah Vonleh will start on Friday vs. the Spurs.
Coach David Fizdale must be running out of tricks to keep us reporters on our toes so he went with the old switcheroo. Vonleh hasn’t been the best option of late in fantasy, however.

Emmanuel Mudiay and Lance Thomas will start on Friday vs. the Spurs.
Mudiay will be starting for Dennis Smith Jr. (sore back) while Lance Thomas will start for Noah Vonleh, who’ll head to the bench in this contest. Mudiay is a nice play in DFS if your lineup hasn’t locked.

Lance Thomas started with Noah Vonleh out on Saturday and was able to post 10 points, seven rebounds and two 3-pointers against the Kings.
Thomas did his damage in 25 minutes. He's only a DFS punt on days where he's starting, and this performance was better than you should expect from Thomas anyway.
February 24, 2019, 10:20 pmLance Thomas - F - New York Knicks
Lance Thomas started for Luke Kornet on Sunday and put up 16 points with seven rebounds on 7-of-13 shooting in a win over the Spurs.
Although he may have been a good DFS stream for this game, he can be left on the wire since his days as a starter are temporary.
February 1, 2019, 7:51 pmLuke Kornet - F/C - New York Knicks
Luke Kornet (left ankle sprain) started on Friday vs. the Celtics, sending Lance Thomas back to the bench.
Kornet started at center in his first game back though that was with newly acquired DeAndre Jordan unavailable. There’s a chance Jordan is moved again before the February 7 trade deadline, but if he ends up staying in New York, Kornet’s chance at standard-league value will be severely impacted.

Lance Thomas started on Friday night and wound up with six points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes of work.
Thomas went from out of the rotation to starting as the Knicks try to erase any edge they might have in Enes Kanter trade discussions, so that's where we're at here. Thomas is only an option in 30-team leagues and we'd bet on him falling out of the rotation again by the end of the year.

While Lance Thomas (knee) is officially available on Sunday, he may not play.
Thomas is probably on the outside looking into the rotation right now, and that's a good development for fantasy owners. We'll let you know if he plays today.

Lance Thomas (knee) is questionable to play on Sunday.
Thomas has been sidelined since early November because of an arthroscopic procedure. He had been starting early in the season but figures to stick in a limited bench role now that Kevin Knox and Noah Vonleh are giving the Knicks solid play at the forward spots. Fantasy owners don't need to monitor Thomas at all.
