Eastern Atlantic


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.

Nerlens Noel compiled six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, four steals, two assists and two blocks across 30 minutes during Monday's 111-96 win over the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: Noel doesn’t provide much in scoring but continues to rack up defensive stats. He’s recorded at least one steal and two blocks in the last three contests. Noel is averaging 6.3 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 2.1 blocks in 2020-21. The 27-year-old continues to have a key role in the Knicks rotation with starting center Mitchell Robinson (hand) remains sidelined. Noel will look to keep up his strong defensive play when the Knicks visit the Pelicans on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old PG has been solid for the Knicks in 2020-21, averaging 12.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 0.8 steals across 26.1 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Randle led the Knicks in scoring and reached the 30-point plateau for the first time since March 23rd. He recorded his 33rd double-double on Monday, good for eighth overall in the NBA.

Randle will look to keep up his strong play when the Knicks visit the Pelicans on Wednesday.

RJ Barrett registered 19 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3PT, 2-3 FT), five assists, two steals and one rebound across 33 minutes in Sunday's 102-96 win over the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: Barrett has been on a roll lately, scoring 19 points or more in four straight contests. He’s buried at least two triples during that four-game stretch. Barrett is a secondary option in the Knicks offense behind star power forward Julius Randle. The 20-year-old is averaging 17.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.4 triples across 34.0 minutes in 2020-21. Barrett will look to keep up his hot shooting from downtown when the Knicks host the Lakers on Monday.

Derrick Rose amassed 19 points (8-17 FG, 0-4 3PT, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and two blocks across 26 minutes during Friday’s 133-129 overtime win over Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact: Rose filled the stat sheet by contributing all across the board during Friday’s win over the Grizzlies. He’s now scored double figures in three straight contests. The veteran PG is averaging 12.0 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.0 triples across 25.6 minutes in his last seven games. Rose will try to keep up his strong play when the Knicks host the Raptors on Sunday.

Alec Burks totaled 19 points (5-15 FG, 3-8 3PT, 6-6 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes during Friday’s 133-129 overtime win over Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact: Burks led the Knicks bench in minutes and poured in 19 points during Friday’s win over the Grizzlies. He’s struggled to find his shot recently, shooting a woeful 29% from the floor in his last four contests. Burks provides the Knicks a scoring threat off the bench, but the 29-year-old guard is mainly an option in deep-league formats. Burks will look to get his shot back on track when the Knicks host the Raptors on Sunday.

Immanuel Quickley supplied 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal across 31 minutes during Friday’s 133-129 win over the Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact: Quickley led the Knicks bench in scoring with 20 points and tied RJ Barrett for the overall lead during Friday’s win over the Grizzlies. He reached the 20-point plateau mark for the first time since March 15th. Before his 20-point outburst, Quickley had been quiet recently. The Knicks rookie PG failed to score double figures in his previous five games. Quickley will look to build on Friday’s performance when the Knicks host the Raptors on Sunday.

Reggie Bullock supplied 21 points (6-11 FG, 5-10 3PT, 4-4 FT) three rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes in Monday's 114-112 loss to the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Bullock continues to stay hot from downtown, shooting 55% (11-for-22) in his last two contests. He’s now scored double figures in four straight games. Bullock is averaging 16.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals, and 4.3 triples across 30.0 minutes during that four-game stretch. Fantasy managers who need help in scoring and threes should look to pick up Bullock off the waiver wire. The Knicks next scheduled game is Wednesday, away against the Celtics.

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: After undergoing successful surgery on Monday to repair a fracture in his right foot, it's unclear how long Robinson will be out for. With the fantasy season coming to a close in the next two months, it's likely Robinson is a non factor the rest of the way making him a clear drop in all formats.

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.

Fantasy Impact: If Knox were to be moved to Cleveland he would likely compete with Isaac Okoro or Cedi Osman for minutes at SF. The two players have similar numbers in terms of season averages.

Dennis Smith Jr. and some draft compensation has been sent to the Pistons for Derrick Rose. (Source: James Edwards III on Tiwtter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith Jr., 2017's ninth overall pick has only played in three games this season. The extremely athletic point guard could find himself in a starting position right off the bat as Delon Wright is averaging just 9.3 points and 4.7 assists per game. Injuries have marred Smith's last two seasons but he averaged 15.2 points and 5.2 rebounds as a rookie and the Pistons will hope that he can return to form, still being just 23 years old.
