  • Allonzo Trier - G - New York Knicks

    Allonzo Trier (strained left calf) is expected to miss a few more games.

    Trier is joining Dennis Smith Jr. on the sidelines for at least a few more games, opening up extra bench minutes for Kadeem Allen, John Jenkins and potentially Frank Ntilikina behind Damyean Dotson, who has been a top-100 player in 9-cat leagues the past month. Allen looks like a nice streaming and DFS option, with the potential for 30+ minutes.

  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    Noah Vonleh (sprained right ankle) is questionable to play the Nuggets on Friday.

    Super Mario Hezonja, who has provided top-60 value in 9-cat leagues the past month, will continue to benefit from Vonleh's injury.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Coach David Fizdale said the Knicks didn't really have a practice today, so Frank Ntilikina (groin) is still questionable for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    When Ntilikina returns, he will battle Kadeem Allen for backup PG minutes behind Emmanuel Mudiay while Dennis Smith Jr. is sidelined.

  • Kevin Knox - F - New York Knicks

    Kevin Knox blew up for 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting with eight rebounds, three dimes, three 3s and one block in 47 minutes as the Knicks fell to the Jazz 137-116 on Wednesday.

    The scoring and peripherals are nice but the .588 shooting from the field is something that's doubtful for him to sustain. Knox has proven to be a raw scoring talent with some nice upside. Hopefully, he takes a leap in his sophomore season.

  • Mario Hezonja - F - New York Knicks

    Mario Hezonja was active on offense on Wednesday, recording 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting (four 3s), two rebounds and one assist.

    He's coming off an eight-point dud on Tuesday but has overall been a deep-league asset since returning to the Knicks starting lineup on March 18.

  • Mitchell Robinson - C - New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson held his own against the Jazz on Wednesday and put up 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks.

    Robinson now holds the franchise rookie record for blocks at 135, previously held by Kristaps Porzingis (134). He's emerging as one of the league's more reliable block machines and will be a hot target in drafts next season for his defense.

  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    Noah Vonleh (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Wednesday's matchup with the Jazz.

    Vonleh was initially doubtful, which doesn't bode well for a speedy return. He had some nice runs of standard-league value this year but can be dropped in most formats if you're still holding on. This will be game No. 3 on the sidelines for Vonleh, and hopefully Mario Hezonja plays more like his first-game self than he did on Monday.

  • Dennis Smith Jr. - G - New York Knicks

    David Fizdale said that Dennis Smith Jr. (sore lower back) "may be" re-evaluated next week.

    It looks like Smith is headed for a shutdown, and if he does play again this season it may come too late to help fantasy owners. DSJ is a drop in just about all formats with this news, unless you're able to tuck him on IR in 8-cat leagues.

  • Allonzo Trier - G - New York Knicks

    Allonzo Trier (strained left calf) has been ruled out on Wednesday against the Jazz.

    Trier put up 22 points in Monday's garbage time session against the Raptors, but his absence tonight will open up even more time for Damyean Dotson and Kadeem Allen. Dotson's been on a scoring tear that deserves standard-league ownership while Allen's been able to post a few intriguing lines and is worth streaming in deeper leagues.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Jazz, and the Knicks want to see him get through another practice before returning.

    That makes it sound like Ntilikina will play in the next one barring a setback. He's going to be battling with Kadeem Allen for the backup point guard work with Dennis Smith Jr. sidelined, but it'd be surprising if he made an impact in fantasy leagues. Deep-league steals appeal is just about all Ntilikina is bringing to the table right now.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) has rejoined the Knicks and is questionable to play on Wednesday against the Jazz.

    Ntilikina was sent to the G-League for practice today but he'll be back with the big club moving forward. He's not a fantasy option, but the fact that he's nearing a return while Dennis Smith Jr. is out gives him a shot at additional playing time.

  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    Noah Vonleh (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    Mario Hezonja has seen 32 mpg over the last two weeks and should continue to play a substantial role Wednesday with Vonleh likely out again. Hezonja is averaging 12.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals with 0.5 treys and 0.5 blocks over the last two weeks and is worth a look at the end of your bench with minutes in the thirties.

  • Dennis Smith Jr. - G - New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr. (sore lower back) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    Emmanuel Mudiay has averaged 17.5 points, 4.3 assists and .500 percent shooting in 30.7 mpg over the last week and should continue to produce with Smith out. Frank Ntilikina just returned to practice and may carve out a role if Smith's absence continues, while Kadeem Allen is also on the deep-league radar off the bench.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) was assigned to the Westchester Knicks as part of his rehab after being cleared to practice.

    Ntilikina could join the Knicks as early as Wednesday, but his role remains unclear. Keep tabs on the situation, as the injury to Dennis Smith Jr. could provide an opening for Ntilikina to get some minutes if it lingers.

  • Mitchell Robinson - C - New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson scored zero points with five rebounds and three blocks on Monday.

    With his three blocks tonight, Robinson has now tied Patrick Ewing for the Knicks' franchise rookie record for consecutive games with a block. He's swatted a shot in 28 consecutive games and even though he fouled out in 14 minutes, you have to hang onto him because of his insane per-minute production. On the year he's averaging 2.4 blocks in only 18.9 minutes.
