    Taj Gibson had 16 points (5-for-9 FGs, 4-for-5 FTs), nine rebounds, two assists, two threes and a block in 19 minutes in the Knicks' win on Monday.

    Gibson has pretty much been written off by fantasy drafters this season. And while he may have only gotten this much run since Bobby Portis missed this game, it serves as a reminder that Gibson is quite efficient and could play a significant enough role to mess things up for those with other Knicks frontcourt players on their rosters..

    The Knicks have officially announced the signings of Julius Randle, Wayne Ellington, Taj Gibson, Elfrid Payton and Bobby Portis on Tuesday.

    Randle is expected to start at PF as the big-ticket free agent signing, while Payton will compete for a starting job and Portis should see a hefty dose of backup minutes at the four and five. Ellington had a strong finish with the Pistons and could compete for a starting wing job. Coach David Fizdale was pretty unpredictable with his rotations last year, but we can't imagine Taj Gibson taking too many minutes away from the trio of Portis, Randle and Mitchell Robinson.

    Taj Gibson and the Knicks have agreed in principle to a two-year deal worth $20 million, as per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The Knicks failed to land any big free agents and are now scampering to sign anyone. Gibson, who is entering his 10th year in the league should be in for a back-up role for Julius Randle. Gibson's shooting efficiency should keep him borderline-relevant as long as he can carve out 22-25 minutes per game.

    The Knicks are interested in Wayne Ellington and Taj Gibson, according to Ian Begley of SNY.

    New York has cash to burn and will be looking to sign players to short-term contracts, according to earlier reports. Gibson and Ellington fit the bill as quality vets who can stay in their lanes, help the young guys learn and then be flipped for futures at the trade deadline, so the interest makes sense now that the Knicks haven't made good use of their vast cap space.

    Darren Wolfson is reporting that the Clippers, Nets, Bucks, Raptors, Warriors, Lakers, Bulls, Hornets and Blazers all have "some level of interest" in Taj Gibson.

    Not all of those teams figure to be in serious pursuit of Gibson, but there will clearly be a competitive market for his services. All of those teams have need for a hard-nosed rebounder and solid veteran, though at this point you'd imagine that teams close to title contention will capture Gibson's attention more easily than rebuilding ones. His days as a standard-league fantasy asset are likely over but Gibson still has some real-life utility and won't break the bank to sign.

    A left calf strain forced Taj Gibson to miss the final 11 games of the season.

    Gibson ended the year with averages of 10.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.6 blocks on .566 shooting in 24.1 mpg. His minutes really declined over the final two months as the Wolves fell out of the race and Ryan Saunders chose to get a better look at younger options, and the late swoon leaves Gibson with top-150/130 value in 8/9-cat. His starting days might be over, so a late-round ceiling is a safe expectation if you have interest in rostering Taj in the future.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) will sit out Minnesota's regular season finale against the Nuggets.

    This one doesn't come as a surprise, as Gibson hasn't suited up for nearly a month. Dario Saric will continue to see minutes, while Keita Bates-Diop could see extended run as well.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is doubtful for Wednesday's game with the Nuggets.

    The Wolves never shut Gibson down officially but we all knew where this was headed as soon as he popped up on the injury report a handful of games ago. Dario Saric, Anthony Tolliver and Keita Bates-Diop will look to finish their seasons on strong notes here.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is out for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

    Dario Saric, who's had a top-50 9-cat value the past week, will look to continue his strong finish to the season. Anthony Tolliver is in line for extra minutes tonight.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is being termed doubtful for Tuesday's game with the Raptors.

    That's generous, because he's not going to play. Dario Saric has put a few nice games together, so that's where you'll want to look if your fantasy season is still rolling.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) will not play on Sunday.

    The Wolves keep listing Gibson as doubtful but he's likely done for the year. Dario Saric and Anthony Tolliver should continue to split the power forward minutes, but they're not quite 12-team assets.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    Gibson isn't officially ruled out for the season, but it's not looking good. Anthony Tolliver should get extra run again, but is not much of a fantasy option.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) will not play on Friday vs. the Heat.

    Gibson hasn’t been officially ruled out for the season but it’s looking like he’s done for the year. Anthony Tolliver will get some extra run but isn’t an ideal option for fantasy.

    Taj Gibson is doubtful for Friday against the Heat with a left calf strain.

    Gibson will probably not go again in this one, so it's possibly just a curtain call on his season at this point. The end of the season shutdowns are undefeated.
