Knicks' Julius Randle: Puts up 20 points vs Celtics
Randle recorded 20 points (7-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal over 34 minutes during Friday's 133-123 loss to Boston.
Randle is one of the most versatile power forwards in the Eastern Conference and tends to fill the stat sheet on a regular basis, but he had a tough task Friday while dealing with the frontcourt of Jayson Tatum and Kristaps Porzingis. Randle has scored 20 or more points in six games in a row, however, and he will look to extend that streak against the Raptors on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' RJ Barrett: Goes for 23 points in loss
Barrett notched 23 points (9-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 31 minutes during Friday's 133-123 loss to the Celtics.
Barrett cleared the 20-point mark for the second consecutive game, and while he's firmly entrenched as one of New York's primary scoring alternatives alongside Jalen Brunson and Julius Randle, this was the first time he posted back-to-back 20-point games since a three-game stretch between Nov. 6 and Nov. 12. His overall numbers are a bit down compared to last season in most major categories, however, perhaps signaling his role as New York's clear third-best option on offense.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jalen Brunson: Scores 23 points Friday
Brunson ended Friday's 133-123 loss to Boston with 23 points (8-17 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 7-9 FT), one rebound, four assists and one steal in 34 minutes.
Brunson scored at least 20 points for the fourth consecutive game and the 13th time over his last 14 appearances, as he's been one of the most consistent scoring guards in the league this season. His contributions in other categories have been scarce, but he earns most of his value through his scoring prowess. He's averaging 26.1 points per game while shooting 50 percent from the field in that aforementioned 14-game stretch.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Quentin Grimes: Moved to bench
Grimes won't start Friday's game against the Celtics, Stefan Bondy of the New York Post reports.
Grimes is off to an abysmal start this year, averaging career lows in nearly every category. In his stead, Donte DiVincenzo will enter the starting lineup. Grimes figures to have a role off the bench for a Knicks squad that struggles to shoot threes at times, but he's falling out of favor with coach Tom Thibodeau.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Donte DiVincenzo: Set to start Friday
DiVincenzo is in the starting lineup for Friday's game versus the Celtics, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
DiVincenzo will replace Quentin Grimes in the starting lineup Friday. DiVincenzo is averaging 19.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 26.5 minutes across his previous two starting appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' DaQuan Jeffries: Suiting up Friday

Knicks' Evan Fournier: Left off injury report
Fournier (illness) is available for Friday's game versus the Celtics.

Knicks' Quentin Grimes: Fails to score Tuesday
Grimes accumulated zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and one steal in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 146-122 loss to Milwaukee.
Grimes was a non-factor yet again Tuesday, failing to score in 18 minutes of playing time. Despite the starting tag, his production has been far from positive. He is outside the top 250 for the season, making him one of the more empty starters in the NBA. To be clear, there is no reason to roster him, even in deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' RJ Barrett: Flirts with double-double in loss
Barrett logged 23 points (7-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), eight rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 146-122 loss to the Bucks.
Barrett scored at least 20 points for the first time in the past eight games, adding a season-high eight rebounds. After a hot start to the season, Barrett's numbers have declined of late. His efficiency was unsustainable to begin the campaign, as we have seen over the past three weeks. He still warrants a roster spot in most leagues, although managers should note that he doesn't offer much upside outside of points and threes.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' DaQuan Jeffries: Ruled out Tuesday
Jeffries (illness) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Knicks.
Jeffries is on the fringe of the rotation, so his absence won't have many fantasy implications.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Evan Fournier: Inactive against Milwaukee
Fournier (illness) won't play in Tuesday's In-Season Tournament Quarterfinal game against the Bucks.
Fournier has been downgraded from questionable to out Tuesday due to a non-COVID illness. His absence shouldn't affect the team's rotation.... See More ... See Less
