Obi Toppin News
New York Knicks forward Obi Toppin could find himself wearing a new uniform next season. The 23-year-old, who was selected with the No. 8 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, is rumored to be included in a potential deal that could bring Collin Sexton to The Big Apple. The former Dayton Flyer had a successful collegiate career but averaged just 4.1 points and 2.2 rebounds last season, primarily due to the presence of Julius Randle. However, if given some minutes and a more prominent role, the upside is certainly there, making Toppin an adequate late-round option in fantasy drafts for the 2021-22 campaign.
New York Knicks forward Obi Toppin (calf) is still at least a week away from returning to the court, despite warming up ahead of Friday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Head coach Tom Thibodeau stated it will "take some time" before Toppin is ready to play again. Calf injuries are always tough, as they have one of the highest rates of aggravation. Friday will be the eighth game Toppin has missed already, and he could miss at least four more if he is not ready by next week. RJ Barrett will continue seeing heavy minutes at the 3 in the near future.
New York Knicks forward Obi Toppin (calf) is going to miss at least six games. He suffered a strained left calf and will be re-evaluated in a week or possibly 10 days. However, that is just to clear him to practice, so he won't be taking the court anytime soon. Fantasy managers can expect Toppin to miss at least six games and possibly more. Kevin Knox is expected to benefit the most from the loss of Toppin. However, we've seen what Knox has done during his NBA career, so he's not an immediate pick up just yet.
New York Knicks small/power forward Obi Toppin (calf) and point guard Immanuel Quickley (hip) will miss Saturday's game versus the 76ers due to respective injuries. The loss of the rookies will dampen New York's depth, with each player's status for Sunday against Milwaukee currently up in the air. Toppin shot 3-for-7 from behind the three-point line in his first NBA action, while Quickley showcased his myriad skills and that his preseason breakout has the chance to avoid being a brief flash in the pan. Frank Ntilikina and Kevin Knox II both figure to see added roles with Quickley and Toppin, out respectively.
