  • McDermott tallied 20 points (7-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 27 minutes during Tuesday's 118-113 win over the Hornets. McDermott was nearly perfect from the field en route to dropping a season-high 20 points on the Hornets, helping lead the team to victory. He scored 20 or more points just four times all of last season, so this performance is certainly one to remember for the fourth-year player.

  • McDermott had four points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, and one assist in 19 minutes during Sunday's 108-101 win over the Pacers. McDermott was held to single digits in scoring for the sixth time in nine games, and this was the fourth time he failed to earn at least 20 minutes. Those who were expecting McDermott to flourish in fantasy this season have to be a bit disappointed, as it's been more of the same for the inconsistent fourth-year small forward.

  • Knicks' Doug McDermott: Excels in preseason finale
    By RotoWire Staff

    McDermott had 21 points (8-12 FG, 4-6 3PT, 1-2 FT) off the bench in Friday's preseason finale against the Wizards. McDermott came into Friday with a minor finger injury, but he played through the ailment and impressed in 24 minutes of action. Look for McDermott, who came over from Oklahoma City in the Carmelo Anthony deal, to be a consistent part of the Knicks' frontcourt rotation this season.

  • McDermott is dealing with a finger injury and has been ruled out for Monday's preseason matchup with the Rockets, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports. It's the first we've heard of the injury for McDermott, but there's no reason for him to play through it in a meaningless preseason contest. He remains on track to be ready for the regular-season opener, though the Knicks could remain cautious and keep him out for the preseason finale on Friday. Tentatively consider him questionable for that contest.

  • McDermott will start at small forward for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Nets,Ian Begley of ESPN reports. Fellow wing Courtney Lee started 74-of-77 games he played in with the Knicks last season, so it's a least somewhat notable that McDermott is being rolled out with the starters in the opener. That being said, coach Jeff Hornacek is expected to try different lineups throughout the preseason, so there's a chance the two ultimately flip flop between the bench and top unit until a starter is announced prior to the regular season. For what it's worth, McDermott also ran with the first unit during Sunday's intra-squad scrimmage.
