Top Obi Toppin News

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Efficient off bench

    Toppin finished with 11 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and three rebounds across 10 minutes during Tuesday's 105-103 win over Cleveland.

    The third-year forward continues to see minimal court time behind the red-hot Julius Randle, but Toppin has scored in double digits in back-to-back games while going 6-for-8 from three-point range. In nine games since recovering from a lower-leg injury and rejoining the Knicks' frontcourt rotation, Toppin is averaging 5.0 points, 2.4 boards and 1.1 threes in only 11.1 minutes a night.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Maintains modest role behind Randle

    Toppin scored five points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added two rebounds, two assists and one steal in nine minutes during Wednesday's 119-113 win over the Pacers.

    Making his second appearance since sitting out for around a month due to a fractured fibula, Toppin once again held a limited role behind starting power forward Julius Randle. Though Toppin has shown the ability to put up interesting counting stats on the rare occasions he's received extended run during his career, his opportunities are likely to remain minimal while Randle and starting center Mitchell Robinson are healthy and producing well for the Knicks, who have won five of their last six games.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Logs full practice Sunday

    Toppin went through the entire practice Sunday, according to head coach Tom Thibodeau, and there's a chance he could play Monday against the Bucks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Toppin has not played in the NBA since Dec. 7, but the fractured right fibula that kept him on the sidelines for several weeks seems to be a thing of the past. He could be eased back into action and might be on a minutes restriction if he's able to return Monday.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Rehabbing in G League

    The Knicks assigned Toppin to the Westchester Knicks of the G League on Thursday.

    Toppin will be recalled to the NBA after a quick rehab stint in time for Friday's game versus the Raptors. Despite being available Wednesday after a thirteen-game absence due to a fractured right fibula, the 24-year-old big man saw no playing time against the Spurs. He could be more involved Friday after getting some additional work under his belt in the G League

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Available Wednesday

    Toppin (lower leg) is available for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    Toppin missed the last 13 games due to a fractured right fibula, but he was upgraded to questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup. He'll officially be able to return to the court against San Antonio, but he'll likely face a minutes restriction following his lengthy absence. He averaged 7.7 points and 3.8 rebounds in 17.1 minutes per game over his first 25 appearances this season.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Upgraded again to questionable

    Toppin (lower leg) has been upgraded to questionable ahead of Wednesday's game versus the Spurs.

    After sitting for nearly a month, Toppin was upgraded to doubtful on the initial injury report after previously being listed as out numerous times. He has earned another upgrade of his status to questionable ahead of Wednesday's tilt, with the current trend likely placing him on a path to make his return. Given the duration of Toppin's absence, he may face a minutes restriction of some kind, though he averaged just 16.4 minutes over the five games before he departed with the injury.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Upgraded to doubtful

    Toppin (lower leg) is doubtful for Wednesday's game versus the Spurs, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Toppin has been upgraded from out to doubtful after missing the last 13 games with a fracture in his right fibula. Even if the 24-year-old big man is unable to suit up Wednesday, as expected, his upgraded injury status is a good sign for his availability moving forward.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Needs additional recovery time

    Toppin (lower leg) was re-evaluated recently and indicated Tuesday that he will likely need a "couple more re-evaluations, Stefan Brody of the New York Daily News reports.

    Toppin is nearing the end of the initial 2-to-3-week recovery window he was given when the injury happened and it appears he's still got some mending time ahead. The team should provide additional updates as he draws closer to retaking the floor, but it's best to consider him sidelined indefinitely until then.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Still out

    Toppin (leg) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks.

    An MRI on Dec. 8 revealed a non-displaced fracture in Toppin's fight fibula head, and the third-year forward was expected to miss at least 2-to-3 weeks. The backend of that estimate is around the corner, so another update should be coming soon. Meanwhile, Toppin will miss a 10th straight game Tuesday, and his next chance to suit up will come Thursday against the Spurs.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Will miss at least two weeks

    Toppin (knee) is expected to be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks after imaging revealed a non-displaced fracture in his right fibula head Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Toppin injured his knee during Wednesday's game against Atlanta. Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said Thursday that RJ Barrett could play more power forward with Toppin out, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports. Cam Reddish and Jericho Sims will also be candidates to see increased roles in the young big man's absence.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Out for remainder of game

    Toppin won't return to Wednesday's game against the Hawks due to right knee soreness.

    Toppin tallied three points and one rebound in eight minutes before exiting Wednesday's game. His status for Friday's game in Charlotte is uncertain.

  • 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.
