Mudiay totaled 17 points (5-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, and two rebounds in 34 minutes during Thursday's 128-100 loss to Boston. Mudiay continues to put up standard league numbers despite the Knicks being blown out again. Trey Burke (knee) remains without a timetable for his return giving Mudiay plenty of run. His upside is limited but he has been taking advantage of the opportunity presented to him and owners should ride him while he is hot.
Mudiay registered 16 points (6-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one block across 36 minutes in Monday's 110-107 loss to the Wizards. After a 28-point outburst his last time out, Mudiay followed that up with a 16-point game Monday night, which is encouraging given he had just 12 points in the two games prior to his season-high scoring outing. Mudiay appears to be back on track and should remain in the starting lineup for the Knicks, which provides him with plenty of opportunity.
Mudiay amassed 28 points (10-18 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and one steal across 36 minutes in Saturday's 136-134 overtime win over the Bucks. Mudiay has surpassed the 25-point plateau twice in the last five games, but those performances have bookended a three-game stretch where Mudiay totaled 29 points combined and played 23 minutes or fewer on each occasion. Coach David Fizdale's finicky rotations have made projecting playing time a difficult task game in and game out, but Mudiay should at least benefit from top backup Trey Burke exiting Saturday with a knee injury and having already been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Wizards. Burke's absence should pave the way for Frank Ntilikina to re-enter the rotation as Mudiay's top backup.
Mudiay had just three points, one rebound, and one assist in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 117-91 loss to Philadelphia. Mudiay was a non-factor Wednesday, scoring just three points in 21 minutes as the starting point-guard. After two strong performances, Mudial has put up back-to-back stinkers much to the disappointment of those who added him off waivers. There is no indication he is going to lose the starting spot but the minutes are clearly going to fluctuate depending on who has the hot hand.
Mudiay contributed 27 points (10-20 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, four steals and two assists across 29 minutes in Friday's 114-109 win over the Pelicans. Mudiay had a scoring outburst Friday night, as the 27-point performance marked his first game of over 20 points on the season. It was a much needed effort from Mudiay, not only for the team but for his self-confidence and his ability to maintain his role as the starting point guard moving forward.
