Knicks owner James Dolan tested positive for Coronavirus on Saturday.
Dolan is in self-isolation and fortunately has "little to no symptoms". The Knicks' press release said that Dolan "continues to oversee business operations" which is hopefully, a good indicator that Dolan is feeling well.

Ian Begley of SNY is reporting that some inside the Knicks front office are "enamored" with pending free agent Christain Wood.
The Knicks overhauled there frontcourt last offseason with the additions of Juluis Randle, Marcus Morris, Bobby Portis and Taj Gibson joining Mitchell Robinson and Kevin Knox. The Knicks have since traded Morris and can decline Portis' 2020-21 team option if needed. Wood and the Knicks would make an interesting pairing, but this would once again curb the upside of Mitchell Robinson.

Mitchell Robinson scored 16 points on a perfect 7-of-7 shooting on Wednesday, also collecting six rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 26 minutes off the bench.
It's nice to see the points total staying in the teens for Robinson recently. Coupled with the shooting percentage and blocks, he can be a really solid contributor to fantasy teams needing big man stats.

Mitchell Robinson (illness) appears to be on the active roster for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.
The Knicks never updated Robinson's status so DFS players had to pivot in another direction. If Robinson is not a healthy scratch, he should have a productive night against a softer Wizards frontcourt. The media restrictions are going to be tough navigating for the fantasy community in the coming weeks.

Mitchell Robinson (illness) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.
Robinson missed a game last week but played nearly 30 minutes in Sunday's win against the Pistons. If he can't play, Bobby Portis would be the biggest beneficiary. Keep an eye on his status as the day moves along.

Mitchell Robinson played well on Sunday in a 96-84 win over the Pistons with 14 points and 11 boards in 27 minutes of action.
Robinson shot 5-of-6 from the field and added three blocks and one steal to the box score. He remains the best fantasy option on the Knicks due to his field goal percentage and blocks. It seems as though health will be his only obstacle to keep him from maintaining early-round value for the rest of the season.

Mitchell Robinson (left hamstring) will be on the floor to face the Thunder on Friday.
It was just a one-game absence for Robinson, who has been a beast since the All-Star break. He's replicating the closing stretch early-round value he displayed last season, and as long as he stays healthy there is no reason he can't keep it going.

Mitchell Robinson is questionable to face the Thunder on Friday as he continues to nurse a sore left hamstring.
Robinson missed his fourth game of the season on Wednesday and was able to play in 50 straight games prior. Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis are the primary beneficiaries when Robinson sits but both players have major holes in their fantasy games.

Mitchell Robinson will not be able to play against the Jazz on Wednesday as he nurses a sore left hamstring.
Robinson has been great over the last two weeks but will be forced to miss a fourth game this season. He has been able to play in the last 50 games before Wednesday. Taj Gibson, Bobby Portis and Kevin Knox could see additional minutes with Robinson sidelined.

Mitchell Robinson (hamstring) is being listed as questionable against the Jazz on Wednesday.
Robinson has seen his minutes rise since the break and has seen his production jump up because of it. Robinson is just outside the top-25/40 in 9/8 cat leagues over the past two weeks with averages of 11.8 points, 10.5 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 2.8 blocks on over .72 percent shooting from the field. He looks primed for another late-season resurgence.

Mitchell Robinson double-doubled on Monday with 12 points and 13 rebounds.
Robinson looked good when he was on the floor, posting solid per-minute production as always and looking even bigger than usual against a small Rockets team. He's finally getting unleashed and fantasy owners are loving it.

Mitchell Robinson continued to heat up on Saturday, gaining more steam thanks to his 23 points on 11-of-16 shooting with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks.
Robinson has been trending up and it looks like he's getting a bit more leash, leading the bench tonight with 29 minutes. A strong late-season surge from him now, would definitely be not too little nor too late for most of his owners.

Mitchell Robinson played 32 minutes off the bench on Thursday, scoring six points, grabbing eight boards and blocking three shots as the Knicks fell to the Sixers 115-106.
Robinson has really come on recently, posting nine points, 10 boards and almost four blocked shots over the last four games, good for the 20th ranked player in 9-category formats over the last week. It's not inconceivable that he could approach that output over the last month and a half of the regular season, especially if Bobby Portis continues to be uninspiring (seven points and one rebound in 22 minutes).

Mitchell Robinson posted a monster double-double on Wednesday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting with 16 boards, one steal and three blocks in 30 minutes off the bench.
This could be the break-out performance Robinson owners have been waiting for, and he is coming off a five-block performance in 26 minutes on Monday. Robinson was a top-20 player in just 25.4 minutes per game after the All-Star break last season. He could easily replicate that production down the stretch this season and is still a top-40 player in 9-cat leagues over the past month. He has a high floor and league-winning upside. Congrats if you bought low or held Robinson through his struggles this season.

Tom Thibodeau is the front runner to become the next coach of the Knicks, according to Jonathan Macri of SI.com.
In seven full seasons as coach with Chicago and Minnesota, Thibodeau has compiled a 352-246 record, while he has missed the playoffs just once, his first season with the Wolves. His serious demeanor and no-nonsense approach have earned him respect among team executives and stars like Jimmy Butler, but he has struggled to earn the trust of young and upcoming players. Leon Rose is also nearing his starting date as the team's president of basketball operations in what seems to be a busy offseason for the Knicks.
