Vujacic supplied 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six boards, two assists, and two steals across 24 minutes in Thursday's 103-93 loss to the Raptors. Vujacic was able to surpass 20 minutes and score double-digit points for the first time since Dec. 9, which likely wouldn't have been possible if Jose Calderon (groin), Carmelo Anthony (knee), and Kristaps Porzingis (illness) were available. At least one of those three players figures to be back for Friday's game against the Suns, which should result in a lesser role for Vujacic, who is only averaging 7.4 minutes in January.
Vujacic scored two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and added one rebound over six minutes in Monday's double-overtime victory against the 76ers. Vujacic has played in all of the Knicks' last three games, but has seen just 12 total minutes of floor time. Unless Arron Afflalo succumbs to another injury at some point later this season, Vujacic likely won't have much of an opportunity to see extended minutes.
Vujacic posted 10 points (3-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven assists, three steals, and one rebound in 27 minutes in Wednesday's 106-85 loss to the Jazz. Vujacic hasn't logged this many minutes since Nov. 6, and he managed to put up quite a solid line as a result. Still, this doesn't mean anything from a fantasy standpoint, because the outcome of the game was a blowout, and Vujacic picked up a lot of garbage-time minutes. He's played in just 16 games this season, and is averaging just 17 minutes per contest, so Wednesday's outing was an anomaly and can be ignored for now.
Vujacic played only three minutes and did not score in Monday's 95-78 loss to the Heat. After averaging about 23 minutes per game in the Knicks' first eight games, Vujacic's minutes have dropped drastically as he has only played 16 minutes total in the previous seven contests. The main reason for that is the shooting guard has shot very poorly this season (.286 FG%, .167 3P%) which has kept him out of the rotation as of late.
Knicks shooting guard Sasha Vujacic will get the start in the Wednesday season opener in Milwaukee, reports Ian Begley of ESPN. Vujacic has never averaged more than 10 points or two assists over the course of his previous eight years in the NBA and now that he's 31 years old things aren't expected to suddenly change. Until Arron Afflalo (hamstring) returns, expect Vujacic to see extended time on the court with limited production.
