Seraphin scored two points (1-4 FG) and added a rebound in the Knicks' 95-78 loss to the Heat on Monday. Outside of two double-digit point games back-to-back against Charlotte and New Orleans, Seraphin hasn't been very productive on the offensive end and has seen more than eight minutes just twice in New York's other 13 contests. He currently comes off the bench behind Robin Lopez, Kristaps Porzingis, and Derrick Williams.
Seraphin (knee) made his season debut Monday against the Spurs, finishing with two points (1-3 FG) and two boards in five minutes. Seraphin entered the game in the second half after missing the Knicks' first three games of the season with the sore right knee. While Seraphin could see his role evolve as he becomes further removed from the injury, he saw fewer minutes than fellow frontcourt players Robin Lopez (32), Kristaps Porzingis (24), Kyle O'Quinn (19), and Derrick Williams (11), indicating that he's not a high-priority bench option for coach Derek Fisher.
Seraphin (knee) is out against the Hawks on Thursday, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports. Seraphin was hoping to return after sitting out of the Knicks' opener versus the Bucks, but the Hawks have elected to wait another game to bring the 25-year-old back. Lance Thomas could pick up some minutes in his stead. His next opportunity to return will come on Saturday when the Knicks play the Wizards.
Seraphin (knee) is listed as questionable to participate against the Hawks on Thursday, KL Chouinard of NBA.com reports. Seraphin has had an ongoing battle with knee soreness, but it seems like there is a possibility for him to play against the Hawks. If the center is able to participate Thursday, he probably wouldn't see much playing time as he is deep in the depth chart behind Robin Lopez, Kyle O'Quinn, Kristaps Porzingis and Derrick Williams.
Seraphin (knee) will not play Wednesday, Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal reports. Burried on the depth chart behind Kristaps Porzingis, Robin Lopez, Kyle O'Quinn and Derrick Williams, it's unlikely Seraphin will suit up until he is fully healthy. Once he's active, he could provide a handful of quality minutes off the bench, but it's unlikely he will provide much fantasy production unless one or two of the aforementioned players above succumbs to an injury.
