    RJ Barrett secured his first career double-double on Wednesday night, ending with 22 points, 10 boards, three assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.

    Barrett logged over 40 minutes before the game even went into overtime and finished the game seeing 46 minutes. The Knicks aren't afraid to use their first-round pick, however, this hasn't turned into fantasy relevance yet. Games like this will help put him on the radar in standard leagues.

    RJ Barrett had yet another dreadful game on Tuesday as he made just 1-of-9 field goals in 19 minutes, resulting in just five points and four rebounds as the Knicks were blown out by the Blazers.

    The train wreck rolls on for Barrett and the Knicks. In case you're still holding him in standard leagues, you can cut bait now. Barrett should have a bright future, but it's not likely to be here soon with the terrible efficiency he's shown. Frank Ntilikina didn't fare much better, shooting 1-for-5 for two points, an assist and a steal in 17 minutes. Similarly, Kevin Knox had two points (1-of-7 FGs), three rebounds, three assists and a block in 20 minutes.

    Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that head coach David Fizdale has been fired by the New York Knicks.

    So ends a brutal run for David Fizdale, going 21-83 over the course of two seasons. You can't really blame him for this team's failure though. Fantasy wise, the Knicks have been getting blown out rapidly of late. Keeping the games semi-competitive should give the starters more consistent minutes. This could be good news for youngsters like Mitchell Robinson, Frank Ntilikina, Kevin Knox, as the focus could shift to youth development under a new head coach. Under James Dolan's watch anything can happen though, it is hard to expect any major fantasy prospect to emerge from the shakeup.

    RJ Barrett had a game to forget on Monday against the Bucks as he missed all nine of his field goal attempts while producing just two free throws, one rebound and one block in 20 minutes.

    Yikes. Hopefully this is rock-bottom for Barrett and the Knicks. Kevin Knox (1-of-9 FGs) and Dennis Smith Jr. (1-of-7 FGs) also started and had poor nights.

    RJ Barrett had a reasonable showing for the Knicks on Friday, posting 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, one 3-pointer and two assists.

    At least it was an efficient scoring night, which at this point, has been the biggest question mark surrounding Barrett's game. He's still got star potential but needs the game to slow down for him more.

    RJ Barrett received a warm reception from the Toronto crowd on Wednesday and put up 16 points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in a blowout loss.

    Barrett went 5-of-17 from the floor and 4-of-6 from the line, and that horrific inefficiency has kept him well outside the top-200 despite respectable production in the counting stats. If you punt free throws Barrett moves up to around the top-125, and if you also punt field goal percentage, the rookie clocks in with top-100 numbers. Barrett's completely build-dependent.

    Kevin Knox (left quad) is available to play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Knox will move back to his usual bench role with RJ Barrett (illness) returning to the starting lineup. Similar to Barrett, Knox finds himself outside of the top-250 in per-game value so far this season.

    RJ Barrett (illness) will start on Wednesday vs. the Raptors, moving Kevin Knox back to the bench.

    Barrett will return after a one-game absence. Like most rookies, RJ is currently struggling with his efficiency numbers, making him a difficult play in most fantasy leagues. He is currently on pace to finish with top 240/310 per-game value in 8/9 cat leagues.

    The Knicks announced this morning that RJ Barrett, Kevin Knox and Frank Ntilikina are all probable for tonight’s game against the Raptors.

    This is a homecoming game for Barrett who was only battling an illness. Knox, who started in the rookie’s place on Sunday, should go back to the bench, while it’s good to see Ntilikina quickly recovering from his contused quad.

    RJ Barrett remains questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Raptors.

    This is just an illness so we should get another update tomorrow after the Knicks’ shootaround. The rookie is having a nice season overall but his free throw percentage and turnovers make him a consideration only in deep leagues.

    RJ Barrett (illness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Nets.

    Kevin Knox is expected to draw the spot start in place of Barrett and comes into play for streaming and DFS. He is very boom or bust, but if you are not worried about percentages he won't harm you too much.

    David Fizdale confirmed that RJ Barrett will play against the Sixers on Wednesday.

    The rookie wasn’t really in danger of missing any time and he will continue to start and to be one of the few bright spots for the struggling Knicks.

    RJ Barrett (sprained left thumb) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Sixers.

    Barrett has had a solid season in the counting stats this year with 15.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.2 threes and 1.3 steals per game. Of course the caveat being that those numbers come with some of the worst percentages in the league and 2.7 turnovers per game. Barrett will have every opportunity to fix those issues this year and remains a must-own on a bad Knicks team.

    RJ Barrett showed some positive signs in Monday's win over the Cavs as he collected two steals and two blocks while hitting 4-of-5 free throws in addition to his 15 points (5-of-13 FGs) in just 24 minutes.

    Barrett is one of the players most harmful to your free throw percentage, so any improvement there is a great sign. Barrett's first two-block game of his career follows six games with zero blocks, so it's not a trend quite yet. But speaking of blocks, Mitchell Robinson had four in just 17 minutes tonight.

    RJ Barrett (right quad contusion) poured in 22 points on 8-of-16 shooting, adding five rebounds and two assists in Saturday's 103-102 home loss to the Hornets.

    Barrett has taken his fantasy owners on a roller-coaster ride in his rookie season. Tonight's game was a solid outing for the first year player and highlighted his ability to carry the load offensively as he paced the Knicks in scoring. Unfortunately he failed to produce in other categories and ended up coughing up the ball four times.
