New York Knicks Roster
- Eastern Atlantic
- Madison Square Garden
New York Knicks forward Ignas Brazdeikis was expected to be given an opportunity to play on the team before the league was suspended, according to Marc Berman. He was averaging 21 points while shooting a high percentage from the floor during his 21 games in the G League. Unfortunately, both the NBA and G League have suspended play until further notice. It's unclear if the Knicks still play to give Brazdeikis a shot when the league does return to action. Otherwise, he might have to wait until the Summer League before he gets a chance to prove himself.
New York Knicks guard Damyean Dotson has not been a big part of the rotation this season. He didn't appear in eight of the last nine games before the NBA was put on hiatus. There's a good chance that Dotson doesn't see much playing time when the NBA returns. The Knicks are likely going to use their younger players over Dotson at this point in the season. The Warriors, Bucks, and Jazz are reportedly interested in signing Dotson this offseason. He likely won't have much fantasy value on those organizations, but he'd probably get more playing time than he does in New York right now.
New York Knicks forward Julius Randle has had an up-and-down season in the Big Apple, though he was clicking on all cylinders against the Hawks on Wednesday. In 38 minutes, he scored 33 points on 13-for-22 shooting from the field, 3-for-6 from deep and he knocked down all four of his attempts from the charity stripe. Randle also grabbed 11 rebounds, dished out three assists and came up with a block and steal in a 136-131 overtime win for New York. Over his last 10 games, he is averaging 21.8 points and 10.4 rebounds, meaning he is someone who could be a worthwhile addition once the NBA season resumes.
New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson was his usual efficient self against the Hawks on Wednesday. In a team-high 26 minutes off the pine, he scored 16 points on a perfect 7-for-7 accuracy from the field. Also, Robinson pulled down six rebounds and ended up with a steal and two blocks. The one disappointing statistic for him was his free-throw shooting, as he only connected on two of his seven tries from the charity stripe in a 136-131 overtime win for the Knicks. Robinson is averaging 12.7 points and 8.8 rebounds over his last nine outings. Despite the fact that he is coming off the bench, the youngster is a reliable fantasy asset because of how he impacts the game on both ends of the floor.
New York Knicks guard RJ Barrett was able to put together a terrific all-around performance versus the Hawks on Wednesday. In 39 minutes of action, he scored 26 points on 9-for-14 shooting from the field, 6-for-6 from the charity stripe, and he converted on two of his five three-point attempts. Barrett also chipped in five rebounds and four assists, and he made an impact on both ends as he came up with two steals and one block in a 136-131 overtime victory for the Knicks. The rookie enjoyed his second straight solid outing, as he dropped 16 points against the Wizards on Tuesday. He is someone worth adding to your roster if/when the NBA campaign resumes.
