    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.

    Taj Gibson scored eight points with 10 boards, two assists and a block on Monday.

    The trio of forwards absolutely clobbered the small-ball Rockets on the glass tonight. Each of them had a solid game and took full advantage of their size, but tonight was definitely an outlier in terms of fantasy production. Bobby Portis came off the bench and scored 15 points with five boards, a steal two blocks and two triples and Julius Randle had a huge night with 16 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and a block.

    Taj Gibson (backs spasms) returned from a one-game absence on Saturday and was able to play well in 19 minutes, helping the Knicks come away with a 125-115 win with 17 points (5-of-6 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    Gibson remains a deep-league asset and is capped thanks to his lower than average minutes and usage.

    Taj Gibson (back spasms) will return from a one-game absence on Saturday.

    Gibson will be back in the starting five, clogging up the rotation and limiting the more promising fantasy options behind him. He can be left on the wire in nearly all formats.

    Taj Gibson is probable to meet the Bulls on Saturday due to back spasms.

    Gibson gets the starts when he's healthy but he only picks up minutes in the teens. He's just a deep league center and nothing more.

    Taj Gibson is questionable to face the Sixers on Thursday as he deals with back spasms.

    Bobby Portis will replace Gibson in the starting lineup regardless of Gibson's availability. Taj has no value outside of the deepest of leagues.

    Bobby Portis will replace Taj Gibson, who is questionable, in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest vs. the Sixers.

    Portis has had a nice stretch over the last three games and has streaming appeal in standard leagues. Portis' strength comes with his ability to score and rebound well.

    Mitchell Robinson (sprained left ankle) did not practice on Saturday.

    Robinson has been all over the injury report this season with a variety of ailments but has been able to play through them for the most part. The Knicks next game is on Monday so we should have another update by then. If Robinson cannot play, Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis will likely soak up most of his minutes.

    Mitchell Robinson was limited to 19 minutes on Thursday as he dealt with an illness, scoring just six points and blocking a shot.

    Robinson's disappointing year continued, as Taj Gibson outplayed him and got 28 minutes, scoring 19 points on 13 field goal attempts. It's getting harder and harder to promote a buy for MitchRob. If the minutes won't come now that the trade deadline has passed, it might end up being a sunk cost.

    Despite fouling out in just 17 minutes versus the Nets, Mitchell Robinson produced 12 points (6-of-6 FG), five rebounds and two blocks.

    The foul issue was a huge problem for Robinson at the start of the year, and hopefully, it does not boomerang back into the picture on a regular basis. Considering he only got 17 minutes it was nice to see Robinson get six field-goal attempts up, and delivered his trademark blocks. He remains a mid-round value with tantalizing upside that could be tapped into down the stretch. Taj Gibson was also productive with 11 points, seven rebounds and two blocks. Gibson has streaming appeal when you are in need of traditional center stats, rebounds, blocks and strong shooting from the field.

  • Bobby Portis

    Bobby Portis played 27 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with 12 points (5-for-8 shooting), four rebounds, three assists and a triple.

    Portis played more minutes than starters Reggie Bullock (11 points, three rebounds, one assist) and Taj Gibson (four points, five rebounds, two assists, one block). It's tough to predict which Knicks bench player will produce each night.

  • Marcus Morris

    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.
