Seraphin finished with 12 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, and one steal in 22 minutes during the Knicks' 105-91 win against the Nets on Friday. Seraphin posted his sixth double-digit scoring effort of the season on Friday while making his sixth straight appearance. He had not played in six consecutive contests since the first months of the season, but Seraphin could receive more regular minutes down the stretch given that the Knicks aren't in contention for a playoff spot.
Imterim coach Kirk Rambis said that Seraphin (foot) would be available to play Wednesday against the Bulls. Seraphin's sore left foot kept him out of Sunday's game against the Kings and prevented him from practicing Tuesday, but it appears those absences may only have been precautionary. The big man took part in the Knicks' morning shootaround and should be ready to play if called upon, but don't expect getting Seraphin on the court to be one of Rambis' top priorities. Seraphin is averaging just 10.6 minutes over his 39 appearances on the campaign.
Seraphin (foot) did not practice Tuesday, Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports. Seraphin is still dealing with soreness in his left foot, though he told the assembled media Tuesday that he believes the injury is only minor. Still, his status would appear to be very much in jeopardy for Wednesday's game against Chicago. Seraphin has been in and out of the rotation this season, and he's appeared in five games this month while also racking up five DNP-CDs.
Seraphin is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Kings, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports. Seraphin has played four the Knicks last six games, and averaged 5.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.0 assists in 13 minutes per game. He doesn't play much so this isn't likely to heavily affect the Knicks performance. Look for Kyle O'Quinn and Lou Amundson to fill the big man's minutes while he sits out.
Seraphin has appeared in four of the Knicks' five February games and is averaging 3.5 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 1.3 turnovers over eight minutes. Seraphin has been getting a little more time lately than Kyle O'Quinn as the Knicks' fourth big man off the bench, but that role is far from fertile territory for fantasy production. He'll need an injury to either Robin Lopez or Kristaps Porzingis before claiming relevance in most formats.
