New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson will come off the bench with the second unit in Wednesday's preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks. Robinson got into foul trouble last game, so the Knicks will give Bobby Portis a chance with the starting five. Robinson should be locked as the starting center, but the Knicks probably just want to see how Portis plays with Julius Randle. Robinson is a great option in the early rounds of category leagues.
New York Knicks guard Dennis Smith Jr. (back) is available for Wednesday's preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks. Smith has been sidelined due to back spasms, but appears ready to play now. Head coach David Fizdale wants to see how Smith plays as the starting point guard. He's a late round option in most formats because the Knicks have depth at guard and could easily change it up at any moment. Smith doesn't have a secure starting spot at the moment.
New York Knicks guard Dennis Smith Jr. (back) is listed as probable for Wednesday's preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks. He missed the last two preseason contests due to a lower back strain. He's battling with Elfrid Payton and Frank Ntilikina for minutes at the guard position. This might be a tough situation for standard league owners, so they may want to avoid this.
New York Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina (groin) was able to get through practice on Tuesday. Ntilikina is listed as probable for Wednesday's preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks. He did not practice on Monday due to a sore groin, but downplayed the severity of the injury. It appears he's actually fine, but will have to battle with Dennis Smith Jr. (back) and Elfrid Payton for minutes at the guard position.
New York Knicks forward Kevin Knox (calf) is hopeful to suit up for Wednesday's preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks. Knox tweaked his calf last week and was unable to play in Friday's game. He was able to get in a limited practice on Sunday, but we'll see how he progresses over the next few days. The Knicks might play it safe and have Knox rest, but he should be fine for the regular season opener. Knox should have decent fantasy appeal in most formats.
