Top Obi Toppin News

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Solid work from three

    Toppin logged eight points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 140-110 win over Detroit.

    Toppin scored six of his eight points from beyond the arc and also managed to chip in as a passer. He'd been held to only three total assists over his last six contests heading into Tuesday's clash, so his production in this category is a step in the right direction.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Struggles from field in loss

    Toppin tallied one point (0-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and one block in 19 minutes during Friday's 111-101 loss to the Warriors.

    Toppin has had an up-and-down season and has failed to score double-digit points in his last three outings. Though Toppin has shown the ability to produce interesting numbers when given extended minutes, he's unlikely to get the playing time he needs to achieve lasting fantasy value while Julius Randle is healthy.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Muted effort in Wednesday's win

    Toppin finished Wednesday's 106-103 win over the Nuggets with seven points (3-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt) and three rebounds across 23 minutes.

    Toppin saw 23 minutes off the bench in the win but was unable to follow through with a tangible fantasy line. Despite flashes of upside thus far, Toppin typically sees fewer minutes than what is required to be a 12-team asset. He can have some limited streaming appeal, especially on low-volume nights, but for now should be left for those in slightly deeper formats.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Looks great in victory Monday

    Toppin closed with 15 points (4-10 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and four steals over 26 minutes during Monday's 120-107 victory over the Timberwolves.

    Toppin had his best game of the season, turning things up a notch on both ends of the floor. He flashed some nice upside down the stretch last season but has been unable to carve out a consistent role thus far. If he can find a way to at least 22 minutes per night, he could be considered in 12-team leagues.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Tallies 12 points off bench

    Toppin registered 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt) and three rebounds across 18 minutes during Wednesday's 112-99 loss to the Hawks.

    Toppin scored six of his 12 points from beyond the arc, where he's found decent success in the early going. He's now 11-for-24 from deep through his first seven games of the 2022-23 campaign. Toppin has also added somewhat consistent scoring as a reserve, totaling double figures in four of seven matchups.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Team option picked up

    New York exercised the fourth-year team option on Toppin's rookie contract Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    With the move, the 2020 first-round pick is now under contract with the Knicks through the 2023-24 campaign. After garnering a small role in his rookie season, Toppin improved in nearly every statistical category last year, posting 9.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 17.1 minutes per game. The 6-foot-9 forward has garnered a similar role to start the 2022-23 campaign and figures to be a key reserve for the Knicks throughout the season.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Quality per-minute production

    Toppin closed with 10 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 14 minutes during Monday's 115-102 win over Orlando.

    Toppin racked up 16 points, four rebounds and three assists in 21 minutes Friday, but that effort failed to unlock any bump in usage. The third-year forward was once again efficient and active Monday, but he still saw only 14 minutes of action. Toppin has averaged just 14.3 minutes per game for his career, and his role doesn't seem to be evolving to start the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Expected to play Wednesdasy

    Coach Tom Thibodeau revealed Tuesday that Toppin (undisclosed) will play in Wednesday's opener "barring something unforeseen," Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Toppin practiced in a limited fashion Monday and looks to be trending in the right direction ahead of the opening tip. Toppin fully participated in practice Tuesday and should fill a frontcourt bench role Wednesday if he avoids a setback.

    Toppin (undisclosed) is officially off the injury report for Wednesday's season opener at Memphis.

    Toppin (undisclosed) participated in parts of Monday's practice, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Misses Sunday's practice

    Toppin didn't practice Sunday due to an unspecified injury, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Whatever issue Toppin may be dealing with isn't believed to be a major concern, as head coach Tom Thibodeau said that the third-year big man will likely be ready to go for Wednesday's season opener in Memphis. Toppin is projected to begin the campaign as the top backup to Julius Randle at power forward.
