  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    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.

  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    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 - G - New York Knicks

    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 - F - New York Knicks

    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.

  • Lance 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.

  • Luke 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 - F - New York Knicks

    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.

  • Lance Thomas - F - New York Knicks

    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 - F - New York Knicks

    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.

  • Lance Thomas - F - New York Knicks

    Lance Thomas (knee) has been downgraded to out ahead of Friday night's game.

    Thomas was doubtful, so this isn't surprising, and he is slowly but surely nearing a return. Given the pace of changes in New York and the fact that Thomas opened the year as a starter, you have to at least file his name away in deep leagues, but we'd be surprised if he ended up impacting Kevin Knox or Noah Vonleh substantially.

  • Lance Thomas - F - New York Knicks

    Lance Thomas (arthroscopic knee surgery) is doubtful for Friday's game.

    Thomas had surgery a little over a month ago, and is nearing a return. He shouldn't have much of a role upon his return, but he could steal a few minutes from other bigs.

  • Lance Thomas - F - New York Knicks

    Lance Thomas (arthroscoptic knee surgery) is expected to miss at least four weeks and will then be re-evaluated.

    Thomas has been dealing with knee soreness for sometime now and it looks like the surgery was to remove loose bodies in the knee. Noah Vonleh should continue to start at power forward and Kevin Knox will likely see this biggest impact minutes wise once healthy enough to take on the load.

  • Lance Thomas - F - New York Knicks

    Lance Thomas is questionable to face the Hawks tonight as he is still bothered by left knee soreness.

    Thomas is already an afterthought in the Big Apple after earning the starting power forward position for the Knicks at the beginning of the season. The team has used Noah Vonleh and Mario Hezonja in his place and the return of Kevin Knox could very well mean that Thomas gets pushed out of the rotation.

    Lance Thomas (sore left knee) is available to play on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Despite continued soreness in his left knee Thomas keeps on going. Aside from a hot game here and there, he's not a very good option, even for a DFS punt.

  • Lance Thomas - F - New York Knicks

    Despite dealing with a sore left knee, Lance Thomas is expected to play tonight as the Knicks face the Heat.

    Dave Fizdale said that he is giving his current starting lineup one more game to prove themselves and Thomas could soon find himself out of the rotation. Mario Hezonja and Noah Vonleh have been playing well after Kevin Knox went down and one of them might enter the lineup soon. Super Mario should be owned in all formats as he has top-75 potential when given the minutes.
