  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke (illness) is being listed as questionable vs. the Thunder on Monday.

    In Burke's past three games he's the 304th ranked player in fantasy and hasn't been very valuable as of late. The Knicks are pretty stacked when it comes to guards and Burke has missed the last two games with this illness. However, he did play at least 24 minutes in each of the two games before he got sick. It's a messy situation over in New York and Burke only needs to be owned in deeper leagues.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (strained left ankle tendon) is listed as out for Friday’s game against the Pacers.

    This will make it three straight games that Ntilikina’s missed due to the ankle strain and leaves Trey Burke as the only backup point guard. Burke has scored 10-plus points in three straight but his lack of peripheral stats makes him a better play in deeper formats or as a DFS punt play if you’re feeling lucky.

  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke put up 12 points in eight minutes on Saturday.

    This isn't usually notable but Emmanuel Mudiay left the game with an injury after piling up 13 points and five assists in 24 minutes. Frank Ntilikina was junk with two points on 1-of-7 shooting and a minus-36 mark in only 16 minutes, and while Burke's garbage time output isn't much to chase it certainly makes him look like the preferred option if Mudiay has to miss time.

  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke was a DNP-CD on Wednesday night.

    Burke played 13 and 24 minutes in his first two games back from a sprained MCL but didn't see the court tonight. You can cut ties for now, but know that the Knicks are probably going to throw him back into the mix eventually.

  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke (sprained MCL) is active on Sunday but David Fizdale said he will not play much, if at all.

    Burke might get a handful of minutes backing up Emmanuel Mudiay today but it sounds like the Knicks will take it slow here for the time being. He's only an option in deep leagues, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Burke play his way back into the starting lineup eventually.

  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke (right MCL sprain), Lance Thomas (knee) and Frank Ntilikina (ankle) will all play vs. the Pacers on Sunday.

    Burke is returning from a six-game absence and Allonzo Trier and Damyean Dotson are both out. Burke should be coming off the bench as their primary scorer while Thomas and Ntilikina will continue to be role players. All three players will see an uptick in minutes with the Knicks dealing with injuries.

    Trey Burke (right knee sprain) is probable to face the Pacers on Sunday.

    It looks like Burke will return from a six-game absence. He has certainly had his moments this season but will be impossible to trust in fantasy with the Knicks' ever-changing rotations.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina sprained his right ankle on Friday and will not return.

    The hits just keep on coming for the Knicks and with Trey Burke (knee) also out, it’s once again the Emmanuel Mudiay show. He’s a lower-end stream as long as he’s the only point guard standing.

  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke (sprained right MCL) remains out for Friday's game.

    Burke was hoping to return by Sunday, but that is sounding unlikely. He's rehabbing well, but he might need to wait until after the team's three-game road trip ends and return next week. His return is going to make the point guard situation very cloudy in New York. It should be avoided in standard leagues unless we get some clarity.

  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke (MCL sprain) says his knee is no longer swelling and that his pain is subsiding, and he hopes to be able to return by Sunday.

    While Burke wants to be back by the end of New York's current three-game road trip, it's not looking all that likely. He's been able to cut without pain and is slated to start taking contact in the "next couple days." Burke's return is only going to cloud the point guard situation in New York even further, and given how frequently the rotation changes it's a situation that should be avoided in 12-team leagues.

    Trey Burke (sprained right MCL) will not play on Wednesday.

    Burke was supposed to be re-evaluated on the weekend but the Knicks never updated his condition. Consider him out indefinitely, and you should plan on going without him for this week at the very least. Frank Ntilikina has gotten back into the rotation but Emmanuel Mudiay is still starting, so good luck with that.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    New York Knicks beat reporter Chris Iseman relayed that coach David Fizdale benched second-year guard Frank Ntilikina so he could take a step back and see the game from a different perspective.

    Ntilikina has gotten DNPed for three straight games and coach Fiz noted that he has benched Emmanuel Mudiay, Trey Burke and Damyean Dotson for consecutive games at different points in the season and they have largely responded well upon returning to the court. We can only hope Ntilikina has gotten some new insights from the bench and although we don’t know when the young guard will make it back, it looks like it could be sooner than later. Emmanuel Mudiay will hold down the fort with no Ntilikina or Burke (knee) and is a steaming option as long as he’s the only point guard playing.

  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke will be evaluated on the weekend, meaning he'll miss at least the next three games as a result of his sprained right MCL.

    Burke's sprain is said to be mild but fantasy owners shouldn't plan on having him available next week either, just to play it safe. Emmanuel Mudiay is the guy you'll want to target as Frank Ntilikina can't get off the bench these days. Damyean Dotson has also been playing well lately though it's much harder to draw a line from Burke's absence to his production on the wings.

  • Trey Burke - G - New York Knicks

    Trey Burke (sprained right knee) has been ruled out of Monday's matchup vs. the Wizards.

    He played just one minute in the Knicks' last matchup and was diagnosed with the sprained right knee. Owners knew he would miss multiple games with this being the first of them. Emmanuel Mudiay and Frank Ntilikina are going to be getting some more opportunity but they've both been hard to trust in leagues.
