Fantasy Impact: Rose didn't have his best game of the series in Game 4 on Sunday but he was still very good for the Knicks in the new starting role he has had. In the series Rose has averaged 22.7 ppg through the first four games which is more than the Knicks could have hoped for. Game 5 will take place on Wednesday night in NYC.

Fantasy Impact: Barrett was much better on Sunday having his best game of the series as he was able to shoot 53% from the field in Game 4. The Knicks will look to avoid elimination when they face the Hawks in Game 5 on Wednesday night.

Immanuel Quickley scored four points (2-9 FG, 0-4 3PT) to go along with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in the Knicks game two win Wednesday over Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: Quickley was unable to create the spark Wednesday that he showcased off the bench in game one. He did not lack any confidence, however, regardless of his struggles from the field and will look to bounce back on the road in Atlanta in game three.

Alec Burks scored 11 points (4-13 FG, 1-5 3PT, 2-4 FT) to go along with eight rebounds and two assists in the Knicks game two win Wednesday over Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: After dropping 27 points in game one, Burks really struggled to find his shot Wednesday evening in game two. The Knicks were still able to come away with the victory though, as Burks will look to rebound on the road in game three as he continues to see serious playing time off the bench.

Mitchell Robinson was initially labeled as a game time decision for Game 3, but will is now not expected to play and has no timetable for a return. (Source: Brett Siegel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With C Nerlens Noel playing well, the Knicks don't feel a need to rush their young center back from injury. Robinson last played on March 27, so it's no surprise the Knicks want to be patient with his return from injury. The aforementioned Noel remains a solid DFS play in the meantime.

Elfrid Payton managed zero points (0-4 FG), four rebounds, and one assist across 14 minutes during Sunday’s 96-92 win over the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Payton was the Knicks starting point guard in 2020-21 but was outplayed by veteran Derrick Rose and rookie Immanuel Quickley. He finished the season poorly, failing to score double figures in his last seven games. Payton’s role in the rotation was drastically reduced as the season wore on and he continued to lose playing time to Rose and Quickley. Payton finishes the 2020-21 campaign averaging 10.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.4 triples across 23.6 minutes.

Taj Gibson provided eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 17 minutes during Monday’s 111-96 win over the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: Gibson tied Julius Randle for the team lead in rebounds (10) and racked up defensive categories by recording three blocks and two steals during Monday’s win. The veteran PF doesn’t provide much in scoring but has now pulled down at least eight rebounds in two of his last three contests. Gibson will look to build on his impressive defensive performance when the Knicks visit the Pelicans on Wednesday.

Obi Toppin provided eight points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3PT), two rebounds and one assist across 16 minutes during Saturday’s 125-81 win over the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact: Toppin has seen an uptick in minutes recently with Kevin Knox falling out of the rotation. The Knicks rookie has scored at least eight points in his last two games. Toppin is averaging 4.3 points, 2.2 rebounds, 0.5 rebounds, and 0.3 steals across 11.8 minutes. The 23-year-old forward is mainly a stash in dynasty leagues only. The Knicks next scheduled game is Monday, away against the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Rivers has been away from the team for more than a month, so at this point, it's completely unclear when he'll return. Either way, Rivers is not a priority for the Knicks and can be ignored in most fantasy leagues.

Frank Ntilikina provided 13 points (4-9 FG, 3-7 3PT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 27 minutes during Thursday’s 94-93 win over the Magic.

Fantasy Impact: Ntilikina drew the start and poured in 13 points across 27 minutes in Thursday’s win over the Magic. He’s started three of the past seven games and reached double figures in scoring for only the third time this season. Ntilikina is worth adding in deep-league formats while the Knicks remain short-handed at point guard. The Knicks next scheduled game is Sunday, home against the 76ers.
