Vujacic (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 113-105 win over the Magic on Monday. Vujacic hasn't played in any of the Knicks' last four games and has logged just five minutes total since Feb. 8. The Knicks aren't serious contenders for the postseason and will likely lessen the workloads of their starters in the final month of the season, but don't expect the 32-year-old to poach much playing time, as he doesn't have a place in the team's long-term plans.
Vujacic (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 116-105 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday. Vucevic hasn't played in four consecutive games, and with the Knicks fairly healthy on the wing, it doesn't look like there will be much opportunity for the veteran to crack the rotation in the near future. The 32-year-old is averaging 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds over a career-low 8.2 minutes per game on the season.
Vujacic did not play in Thursday night's loss to the Wizards, marking his ninth DNP in 11 games this month. Vujacic has been used sparingly throughout this season, evidenced by his mere 8.5-minute average across 23 appearances. Despite coach Jeff Hornacek tweaking his rotation over the past week, the veteran has remained glued to the Knicks bench. Such inactivity puts a severe restriction on Vujacic's fantasy value, which seems reliant on an injury to one of his teammates to gain significance.
Vujacic will move back to the bench Saturday against Houston, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports. Courtney Lee (wrist) remains out Saturday, but the Knicks will elect to have Brandon Jennings start in the backcourt instead. Despite starting in each of the last two games, Vujacic only amassed five total points over 49 minutes on the court.
Vujacic will start at shooting guard for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports. The Knicks are set to be without Courtney Lee, as he's been ruled out with a wrist injury. That will allow Vujacic to jump into the starting lineup, which likely means a decent bump in playing time. Vujacic hasn't seen more than two minutes in each of the Knicks' last seven games, but should push for a much bigger role while working with the top unit. That said, guys like Brandon Jennings and Justin Holiday will likely share the added time, which limits the fantasy impact Vujacic may have been able to contribute.
