Dotson underwent surgery Wednesday to address a torn labrum on his right shoulder, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Dotson may have suffered the injury when he missed a few games in mid-December. He played a significant role for the Knicks down the stretch, starting the final 25 games of the season and averaging 13.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 32.5 minutes. Chances are, the Knicks will try to find a way to reduce his role next season, so it seems unlikely he'll be fantasy relevant.
Dotson generated 18 points (6-8 FG, 6-7 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 41 minutes Monday in the Knicks' 113-105 win over the Bulls. Dotson has settled in as a deadly three-point specialist for New York since the All-Star break, converting on 38.6 percent of his attempts from distance for 2.7 triples per game. He shouldn't be expected to turn in rebound and assist totals on this level over the Knicks' final five games, but with his playing time seemingly secure, Dotson profiles as a strong scoring and three-point streamer.
Dotson totaled 18 points (7-16 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 44 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Clippers on Sunday. Dotson had a solid game in Sunday's loss, continuing to stay involved in the offense. He's playing heavy minutes for the Knicks down the stretch and should be a good bet for healthy scoring totals as the season comes to a close.
Dotson scored 25 points (10-20 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding six rebounds and an assist in 41 minutes during Sunday's 124-123 win over the Lakers. The second-year guard is hot right now, scoring at least 20 points in three of the last four games while averaging 22.5 points, 5.0 boards, 3.5 three-pointers, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals over that stretch. Dotson's starting role and ability to fill up the basket from long range makes him worth considering for fantasy GMs in need of last-minute reinforcements in the backcourt.
Dotson tallied 21 points (9-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 35 minutes during Friday's 109-83 loss to San Antonio. Dotson led the Knicks with 21 points Friday, hitting 9-of-19 from the field, including three triples. Dotson has been arguably the most consistent Knicks player over the past two weeks, scoring in double-digits in six of his last seven games. Playing time is the key for any of the Knicks players and Dotson appears to have earned a sizeable role. He is primarily a point and three-point streamer but can contribute in both rebounds and assists.
