    Marcus Morris scored 17 points in 33 minutes in his return to the court on Thursday in a loss to the Suns.

    Morris's return put a dent in any short-term value that Bobby Portis and Taj Gibson had. Morris had an inefficient night, shooting just 4-of-11 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line. He should be a mid-to-late round value going forward. Portis had five points and 10 rebounds in 17 minutes and Gibson had five points in 13 minutes.

    Marcus Morris (sore neck) will play in Thursday’s game vs. the Suns.

    Morris will return to the court after missing the last five contests. Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis will lose any streaming appeal that they might have had with Morris' return.

    Taj Gibson went scoreless in 11 minutes on Tuesday night.

    The earth is back on its normal axis after Gibson had back-to-back solid games. Continue to ignore the veteran.

  • Taj Gibson
    PF, New York Knicks

    Taj Gibson corralled 14 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block in 31 minutes on Sunday afternoon.

    Gibson went 5-of-6 from the field and hit all four of his freebies in 31 minutes. Mitchell Robinson was in foul trouble so Gibson got some extra run, but we wouldn't expect it to continue even if this makes two straight solid games from the veteran.

  • Taj Gibson

    Taj Gibson turned back the clock on Friday, going 8-for-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line to finish with 19 points, eight rebounds and one block.

    Gibson was one of the few Knicks bigs left standing tonight with both Julius Randle and Marcus Morris sitting this one out. Gibson is not on any fantasy radars and can be left on the wire.

    Marcus Morris will sit out Friday's tilt with the Pelicans due to a sore neck.

    That's three missed games for Morris in a row. Certainly not making our attempts to sell-high on him any easier. The Knicks are also without Julius Randle, which means Bobby Portis, Kevin Knox and Taj Gibson will all see extra minutes.

    Marcus Morris (sore neck) has been downgraded to doubtful for Friday's tilt vs. the Pelicans.

    It does not appear as if Morris will play in Friday's game which would mark his third consecutive missed game. Julius Randle has already been ruled out for personal reasons so Bobby Portis, Kevin Knox and Taj Gibson could all see an increase in playing time.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, New York Knicks

    Bobby Portis was solid off the bench on Wednesday as he put up 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, three triples and one assist in 21 minutes.

    The Knicks were in full control of this game and Portis shined in some garbage-time minutes. That said, this is his second straight 17-point outing, giving him some deep-league appeal as an add on the strength of his recent games. Taj Gibson continues to start and waste everybody's time. He played 10 minutes in this game and produced just two points and one assist.

  • Taj Gibson
    PF, New York Knicks

    Taj Gibson (illness) is no longer on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Nets.

    Gibson gets placeholder minutes as a starter and anytime he's active or not, it doesn't have too much impact other than to aggravate the whole team of power forwards situation.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris (sore left Achilles) and Taj Gibson (illness) are questionable for Thursday's game.

    Morris missed Monday's game, allowing Kevin Knox and Damyean Dotson to play more than usual. Morris remains a steady late-middle round option, as it doesn't appear he'll miss much time. Gibson isn't on the fantasy radar.

    Taj Gibson (illness) will be unavailable for Monday's game.

    Gibson's role has been pretty small of late. Bobby Portis will have a bit more value for the moment, though.

  • Taj Gibson

    Taj Gibson (illness) is questionable for Monday's tilt with the Wizards.

    Gibson has been trending down lately, seeing playing time decreases in each of his last five games. He's not a fantasy option but his absence would open up a little more room for Mitch Robinson and Bobby Portis to work.

  • Mitchell Robinson

    Knicks coach David Fizdale said that Mitchell Robinson will not start but is available off the bench on Monday despite his sprained right ankle.

    Fizdale tabbed Taj Gibson, Julius Randle, and Marcus Morris as starters in the frontcourt. It seems odd that Robinson would be deployed if he's not fully healthy considering the Knicks' record, but Fizdale is desperate for a win.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, New York Knicks

    Bobby Portis scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting, adding two rebounds, one assist and one steal in Saturday's loss to the Hornets.

    Teammate Taj Gibson got the start at center over Mitchell Robinson but Portis was still able to play 22 minutes off the bench. The Knicks wanted to go small this game, though they actually found a lot of success when they plugged Robinson in, and Portis was an integral part of their offense putting up 10 shots. Offensively Portis provides a punch but leaves a lot to be desired with the rest of his game. Fantasy managers should be wary with the current logjam in the Knicks front court.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson came off the bench and double-doubled with 17 points, 12 rebounds, one assist, and a steal and block in Saturday's home loss to the Hornets.

    Teammate Taj Gibson got the start for the Knicks but Robinson ended up playing more minutes off the bench. The Knicks appeared to want to go small in this match but found success when they put Robinson in against Charlotte's front court. He did a lot of damage around the rim and collected six offensive boards, leading to easy put-backs and dunks. This game should give fantasy managers confidence that no matter if Robinson starts or not that he will be able to generate the same types of lines as long as he gets his minutes.
