Kevin Knox II
F - NYK
Kevin Know managed three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3PT) two rebounds, one assist across 15 minutes during Sunday’s 105-75 win over the Celtics.
Knox was held under single digits in scoring for the second consecutive game. Knicks rookie Obi Toppin returned from his calf injury recently, which has cut into Knox’s playing time. Unless Knox’s role in the Knicks rotation suddenly increases, he is more of an option in deep-league formats. The Knicks next scheduled game is Monday, home against the Magic.
Kevin Knox scored a team-high 19 points (7-17 FG, 5-12 3PT) with five rebounds, two assists and one block across 29 minutes in Monday's 109-88 loss to the Hornets.
Knox led the Knicks in scoring and poured in a season-high 19 points during Monday's loss to the Hornets. It was only the second time this season that Knox scored in double figures. The 21-year-old is behind Julius Randle and RJ Barrett on the depth chart, but can be used as a steamer while rookie Obi Toppin remains sidelined. He is averaging 7.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.6 triples across 21.8 minutes. Knox will try to build on Monday's performance when the Knicks host the Nets on Wednesday.
Kevin Knox managed seven points (3-3 FG, 1-1 3PT) one rebound and one block across 16 minutes during Wednesday's 112-100 win over the Jazz.
Knox is dealing with a knee injury and has been limited to under 20 minutes in his las three contests. He has only reached double digits in scoring once over eight games this season. The 21-year-old is averaging 6.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 triples across 21.4 minutes in 2020-21. Knox is mainly an option in deep-league formats only. The Knicks next scheduled contest is Friday, home against the Thunder.
Kevin Knox provided 16 points (5-14 FG, 2-8 3PT, 4-5 FT) six rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes during Thursday's 100-83 loss to the Raptors.
Knox was one of the few bright spots for the Knicks in Thursday's loss, tying Julius Randle for a team-high 16 points. He played a season-high 31 minutes and notched his first double-digit scoring effort of the year. Knox is averaging 8.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 triples across 24.2 minutes in 2020-21. The 21-year-old is mainly an option in deep-league formats. Knox will look to continue his strong play in Saturday's away matchup against the Pacers.
Kevin Knox II (knee) is probable for Thursday's game against the Raptors.
Knox is averaging 22.5 minutes a game up to this point in the season. If his shooting percentage stays around 45.5%, expect his role to expand moving forward.
