New York Knicks Roster

New York Knicks forward Julius Randle scored a season-high on Tuesday as the team dispatched the Detroit Pistons by a score of 140-110. The 28-year-old posted 36 points on 14-for-24 shooting and 6-for-11 from beyond the arc. He also added seven rebounds, five assists, and one steal. The whole team caught fire at the same time as they shot 56.3% overall and 45.7% from deep collectively. Randle was the only player with more than 20 points though. He still shows flashes reminiscent of his 2020-21 season, but the consistency isn't quite there.
New York Knicks guard Immanuel Quickley (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Detroit Pistons. The 23-year-old was forced to exit the team's last game with knee soreness, so it's no surprise that he appeared on the injury report. There were no other reports to suggest it was more serious than some soreness or pain. He seems to be more on the side of questionable which means he'll play, but fantasy managers should stay tuned for more updates right before game time in case some pain returns and the team plays it safe.
New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson scored a season-high 34 points Monday in a dominating 129-119 win over OKC. It was an incredibly hot 14-for-20 shooting night for him and Brunson wasn't far away from a double-double either, recording nine assists with one turnover in 34 minutes. He also had one steal while shooting 1-for-6 from downtown. Brunson, who earned a big contract from the Knicks in the offseason, has finally started to play like he's worth every buck of the $104 million deal. He's gone for 20-plus points with rock-solid shooting numbers in four of his past five games. Following some off time, Brunson gets a pair of really good matchups to close out the week, with the Knicks facing Portland and Memphis. Both teams are without their backcourt superstars, which should mean that Brunson doesn't have to spend too much energy on the defensive end and can focus on leading his side's offense.
New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose (toe) and forward Cam Reddish (groin) have been ruled out for Monday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The absence of Rose will mean more playing time for Immanuel Quickley and Miles McBride. Between the two, Quickley is the better streaming option for Monday's slate. Reddish will miss his second straight game due to groin soreness. Quentin Grimes filled in nicely for Reddish during their last game. Fantasy managers looking for a streaming option on Monday should see if Grimes is available.
New York Knicks forward Cam Reddish (groin) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The young forward was forced to sit out of Sunday's game because of the same issue. Quentin Grimes filled in nicely with 10 points, five rebounds, and eight assists across 32 minutes. He's an interesting streaming option with Derrick Rose (toe) also questionable for this game. Both Grimes and Immanuel Quickley would see increased minutes if Rose or Reddish are out. Between the two, Grimes is looking like the better streaming option right now.
