  • Luke Kornet - F/C - New York Knicks

    Luke Kornet stuffed the stat sheet against the Wizards on Thursday, finishing a close loss with 16 points, three rebounds, two assists, five steals, a block and four 3-pointers.

    Normally owners expect blocks and threes from Kornet but they'll happily take the steals instead. He dominated the minutes with Enes Kanter back in New York and Mitchell Robinson playing his return game, so this will likely go down as a high-water mark in terms of the sheer volume of cash counters. You can view it as a sell-high opportunity if you'd like, or take it as a sign of things to come once Kanter is removed from the rotation. Either way, Kornet is a must-own player right now. Just hope that David Fizdale still gives him quality minutes until the rotation gets cleared up.

    Luke Kornet racked up 23 points, five rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in Sunday's 108-105 loss to the Sixers.

    Kornet was 7-for-13 from the field, 3-for-8 from downtown and 6-for-8 from the free throw line and played 34 minutes in what was a 'vintage' UniKornet game. After disappearing for a few games, Kornet showed his diverse stat set once again. If he is going to get the playing time, he's a must-own player with his blocks and 3-pointers combination. He's worth a look if someone dropped him, but with Enes Kanter (illness) and Mitchell Robinson (ankle) due back soon, Kornet will have a hard time carving out playing time.

    Despite the absence of Enes Kanter (overeating), Luke Kornet disappeared in Friday's 106-121 loss to the Pacers, with three points on 1-of-7 shooting, three rebounds and three assists.

    He had a chance to shine and he botched it, which brings to question whether or not Kornet is a truly high-upside pickup. For now, he appears to lack both the spunk and the consistency to be a reliable asset in standard leagues and clings onto late-round value in deep leagues, while Mitchell Robinson and Enes Kanter are fighting him for those minutes.

  • Enes Kanter - C - New York Knicks

    Enes Kanter (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Pacers.

    With Kanter missing this one and Mitchell Robinson (ankle, groin) also out, the Knicks will have only Luke Kornet and Noah Vonleh to man the front court, with Vonleh being the better option in DFS.

  • Luke Kornet - F/C - New York Knicks

    Luke Kornet scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, one steal and one block over 19 minutes in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

    The Warriors are a tough matchup for anybody but especially for a younger player with athleticism issues, so the four cash counters are appreciated to offset the damage of the rest of his line. Kornet has been a top 70-100 player over the last two weeks in just 24.7 mpg, and though his value is complicated right now with Enes Kanter around and Mitchell Robinson (groin) around, but there is tremendous upside and we're still advising a hold.

  • Luke Kornet - F/C - New York Knicks

    Luke Kornet scored six points on 2-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, one steal and one trey over 21 minutes in Friday's win over the Lakers.

    Kornet has been on fire and has posted late-round value over the last month in a 16.6 mpg sample. It's a small sample size but he has a history of producing when getting the minutes and he looks plenty competent out there. Even if this wasn't his best outing and Mitchell Robinson (ankle) is coming back soon, there's enough upside for us to tell you that he's well worth owning in standard formats to see where this goes.

  • Luke Kornet - F/C - New York Knicks

    Luke Kornet started in Tuesday's loss to the Nuggets, scoring 19 points on 6-of-9 shooting with four threes, six boards, one assist and one block in 27 minutes.

    Yeeeee haw. Mitchell Robinson is coming back soon and this isn't going to be pretty, but all we know is that the UniKornet will produce when given the minutes and given his upside he's a must-own player.

  • Luke Kornet - F/C - New York Knicks

    Saturday's blowout didn't affect Luke Kornet much, as he still posted 14 points, six rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers against the Jazz.

    Kornet should continue to start considering his solid performance in 29 minutes tonight. It also helps that he was only a minus-three. The vast amounts of garbage time certainly helped him out there but Enes Kanter finished minus-30 in only 17 minutes and did himself no favors if he's angling for a quick return to the starting five. The Knicks stink like a dumpster in the summer but Kornet's got a fun stat set and is worth putting into lineups as long as he's starting.

  • Luke Kornet - F/C - New York Knicks

    Luke Kornet will remain the starting lineup when the Knicks visit the Jazz on Saturday.

    Kornet produced 23 points with three rebounds, five assists, a block and seven triples in Thursday's start so he should remain a solid low-cost daily league option and deserving of a pickup in standard leagues, at least temporarily. Coach David Fizadale's said he wants to "look at [this lineup] for a little bit" and that it looked "pretty good" on Thursday. Keep in mind that Mitchell Robinson is due back soon which could affect Kornet's minutes.
