Amundson had one rebound in six minutes during the Knicks' 102-84 win against the Suns on Friday. Amundson has now appeared in seven games this month, but is seeing just six minutes per contest. As a result, he can safely be avoided in all fantasy formats.
Amundson (back) has been active for the Knicks' last two games, but didn't see the court in either contest. Amundson had been inactive due to back spasms as recently as the Knicks' Jan. 3 game against the Hawks, but his availability off the bench the last two games suggests that he's now past the issue. However, his lack of usage indicates that he's not a part of coach Derek Fisher's rotation, as all of Robin Lopez, Kristaps Porzingis, Derrick Williams, Kyle O'Quinn, and Kevin Seraphin rank ahead of him for playing time in the frontcourt.
Amundson (back) has missed the past five games due to some lower-back tightness. Amundson is averaging just eight minutes per game this season when he has been healthy, so his absence isn't a dramatic loss for the Knicks. There is no clear timetable for his return, with his next chance to return to the court coming Tuesday against the Hawks.
Amundson (back) remained unavailable in Sunday's 111-97 win over the Hawks. Amundson hasn't appeared in a contest since Dec. 23, and it's not clear when he'll be ready to play again. Once he's fully healthy, Amundson will likely struggle to see more than 10 minutes off the bench on any given day.
Amundson (back) has officially been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Pistons, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Amundson is dealing with some lower back tightness and it will cost him his second straight game after sitting out on Saturday as well. Amundson's role off the bench isn't much, as he's averaging just eight minutes per game, so even when fully healhty his fantasy value will remain limited. Consider him questionable for Friday's matchup with the Bulls as well.
