Top Taj Gibson News

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Blocks three shots in return

    Gibson (illness) logged five points (2-2 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, three blocks and one steal over 26 minutes during Monday's 131-115 win over the Kings.

    Gibson missed the Knicks' previous two games due to an illness, but he was able to log 26 minutes against Sacramento. The veteran didn't do much offensively, but he made nice contributions otherwise with eight boards and three blocks while posting a plus-16 during his time on the court. Gibson can still be a useful contributor off the bench for the Knicks, but his fantasy value is almost non-existent.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Cleared to play

    Gibson (illness) is available for Monday's game against Sacramento.

    Gibson has missed the last two contests due to illness but will be available off the bench Monday evening. He's averaging 6.4 points and 4.7 rebounds over his last seven matchups.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Questionable Monday

    Gibson (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against Sacramento.

    Gibson was unavailable for Sunday's game against the Clippers, but he'll have a chance to return for the second half of the back-to-back set. If he's forced to miss a second straight game, Jericho Sims should continue to see additional run.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Ruled out Sunday

    Gibson (illness) is out Sunday against the Clippers.

    Gibson was considered doubtful ahead of Sunday's matchup, but coach Tom Thibodeau said that the big man was considered a gam-time decision. He'll ultimately be unavailable, which should lead to increased playing time for Jericho Sims as the primary backup behind Mitchell Robinson.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Will be game-time call

    Gibson (illness) is considered a game-time call for Sunday's matchup against the Clippers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson was initially deemed doubtful, but it looks like there's a chance he could be available off the bench for coach Tom Thibodeau. Even if that ends up being the case, Thibs would likely lean on rookie Jericho Sims as the primary backup to Mitchell Robinson, given the circumstances. New York will once again be without Nerlens Noel (foot).

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Gibson is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Clippers due to an illness, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

    With Nerlens Noel (knee) out and Gibson unlikely to play, two-way big man Jericho Sims figures to see an increased role behind Mitchell Robinson. If Gibson is sidelined as expected, he'll also likely be in jeopardy of missing the second half of the Knicks' back-to-back set Monday.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Returns to bench role

    Gibson will come off the bench Thursday against the Warriors, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

    Gibson drew a spot start against the Nuggets on Tuesday, finishing with 12 points, four boards, one assist and two steals in 27 minutes. With Mitchell Robinson back in action, Gibson will return to a bench role. It's worth noting that he's averaging just 9.4 minutes as a reserve over his last five contests.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Starting with Robinson, Noel out

    Gibson will start Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    Gibson will start due to absences of both Nerlens Noel (knee) and Mitchell Robinson (back). In three previous starts, Gibson averaged 3.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 23.7 minutes.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Scores seven points off bench

    Gibson ended Saturday's 117-108 victory over the Hawks with seven points (3-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and three rebounds in 17 minutes.

    With Nerlens Noel (knee) a late scratch, Gibson saw an increased role behind Mitchell Robinson. The veteran forward doesn't hold much fantasy value for season long leagues, but he can certainly offer some high-floor value in DFS if one or both of the aforementioned centers are sidelined.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Available Wednesday

    Gibson (wrist) is available for Wednesday's matchup against the Mavericks, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Gibson was initially questionable. He'll play, but he could see a reduced workload with Nerlens Noel and Mitchell Robinson both available.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Dealing with wrist soreness

    Gibson is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks with right wrist soreness.

    Nerlens Noel (conditioning) is also listed as questionable, so the Knicks may be shorthanded at center during their matchup with Dallas if neither he nor Gibson are available to play.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Starting at center

    Gibson will start Sunday's game against Toronto, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

    With Mitchell Robinson and Nerlens Noel both in COVID-19 protocols, Gibson is the next man up for coach Tom Thibodeau. The veteran is typically the No. 3 center when Noel and Robinson are healthy, but he'll function as the top option Sunday, while Obi Toppin will also see plenty of minutes at the five, per Thibs.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Well-rounded effort

    Gibson ended with four points (1-2 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, four blocks and one steal over 28 minutes during Wednesday's 94-85 win over the Pistons.

    Gibson logged an absurd plus-31 in the box score, coming off the bench and trailing only Immanuel Quickley in minutes played. Despite the muted scoring impact, Gibson recorded a season-high four blocks and was active on the glass. A plus-matchup is on deck for Friday when the Knicks face Oklahoma City.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Starting over Robinson

    Gibson will start Wednesday's contest against the Pacers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    The 36-year-old forward will slide into the Knicks' starting lineup with Nerlens Noel (back) out. It's worth noting that Mitchell Robinson is healthy, but it appears coach Tom Thibodeau would like to get a longer look at him in a bench role. This will be Gibson's first start of the season.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Good to go Tuesday

    Gibson (groin) is available for Tuesday's matchup against the Nets, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

    After five missed games, Gibson will return to the court Tuesday. In 20.2 minutes per game this season, he's averaging 3.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Questionable again

    Gibson (groin) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran continues to nurse a sore groin that's kept him out of the last five games. The Knicks will wait to see how he responds at shootaround in the morning before issuing an update.
