Top Obi Toppin News

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Explodes for 42 points

    Toppin provided 42 points (16-28 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and one block in 40 minutes during Sunday's 105-94 win over Toronto.

    Toppin had a career-best performance in this game, and there's a chance his strong end to the regular season might mean more minutes -- and a bigger role -- in the 2022-23 campaign. Toppin scored a combined 77 points over his final two appearances of the season and started the final five games of the campaign, averaging 27.2 points per game in that span. He could be in line for a bigger role next season, though that will ultimately depend on the roster moves made by the Knicks during the offseason.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Game-high 35 points

    Toppin dropped 35 points (14-22 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist in the 114-92 win over Washington on Friday.

    Toppin drained six three-pointers to continue his solid start to April. The second-year forward is up to 19.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 blocks on 48.7 percent shooting from the field and 38.9 percent from deep in four games this month.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Cherry on Toppin

    Toppin racked up 19 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal across 43 minutes during Wednesday's 110-98 loss to the Nets.

    Logging a whopping 43 minutes, Toppin scored at all three levels while showing off solid moves as an attacker. His three blocks marked a season high and featured a highlight-worthy rejection on Bruce Brown. The 24-year-old has only logged 20-plus minutes 17 times this season, so it remains difficult to gauge his long-term worth and expanded productivity.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Finishes plus-46 in 35 minutes

    Toppin provided 20 points (7-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one block over 35 minutes during Sunday's 118-88 victory over the Magic.

    With Julius Randle (quad) sidelined, Toppin was able to make his second straight start at power forward. After posting 20 points, four rebounds and four assists Saturday against the Cavs, he followed up with an even better effort Sunday. The second-year Dayton product established a new career best with four three-pointers. With Randle likely shut down for the year, Toppin will likely start all three of the Knicks' games over the final week of the regular season.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Scores career-high 20 points

    Toppin racked up 20 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 9-9 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal over 31 minutes during Saturday's 119-101 loss to the Cavaliers.

    With Julius Randle (quadriceps) expected to be out for the season, Toppin should continue starting and seeing increased usage, which could lead to more career-best performances. Toppin's 20 points represented a career high, with his previous high of 19 coming in a start in early January. In addition to scoring in double digits in five of his six starts this season, he's now posted four games with at least three assists in those nods.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Starting in place of Randle

    Toppin is starting Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Toppin had come off the bench in each of his last three appearances, but he'll return to the starting lineup Saturday since Julius Randle (quadriceps) is unavailable. Coach Tom Thibodeau said Saturday that Randle will likely miss the remainder of the season, so Toppin could continue to serve as a starter down the stretch.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Shifts back to bench

    Toppin will come off the bench Sunday against the Pistons.

    The 24-year-old started the past three games and averaged 14.3 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 30.0 minutes, but he'll move back to the bench with Julius Randle (quadriceps) rejoining the lineup. Toppin averaged 11.0 minutes in the four games preceding that starting run, so he may not be a significant rotation piece with Randle back on the court.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Efficient double-double

    Toppin produced 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 11 rebounds, six assists, one block and one steal over 40 minutes during Wednesday's 121-106 win over the Hornets.

    Toppin started once again with Julius Randle (quadriceps) sidelined, and the dunk specialist had another strong performance -- he barely missed from the field and recorded his second double-double of the season. As if that was not enough, he also posted season-high numbers in both rebounds and assists.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Scores 10 points in spot start

    Toppin totaled 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 loss to the Hawks.

    Toppin moved into the starting lineup Tuesday, replacing Julius Randle, who was ruled out with a quad injury. It was Toppin's third start of the season, and while the opportunity warrants some attention from fantasy managers, the productivity left a lot to be desired. As long as Randle remains on the sideline, Toppin should continue to see a bump in playing time, making him at least a streaming option in 12-team leagues.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Starting for injured Randle

    Toppin will start Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    With Julius Randle (quadriceps) out, Toppin will make his third start of the season. In his previous two nods, he averaged 12.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 blocks in 36.0 minutes.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Fails to have impact Sunday

    Toppin closed with nine points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one block and one steal across 13 minutes during Sunday's 108-93 loss to Utah.

    Toppin scored nine points off the bench Sunday as he continues to have very little impact for the Knicks. Even with Taj Gibson and Nerlens Noel out of the lineup, Toppin has not been able to carve out a meaningful role, playing fewer than 15 minutes in each of his last four games. Outside of the deepest fantasy formats, Toppin appears highly unlikely to have any real value, this season or next.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Displays shooting touch in return

    Toppin (hamstring) posted eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and four rebounds in eight minutes Sunday in the Knicks' 110-107 loss to the Nets.

    Toppin has typically held a small role all season as the primary backup to starting power forward Julius Randle, but the second-year player saw even less run than usual Sunday in his return from a five-game absence. Because Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau leaned heavily on Toppin in a game that was closely contested throughout, Toppin fell seven minutes below his season average. Toppin was at least productive during his time on the court, finishing plus-seven for the day while hitting two three-pointers in a game for the first time since Jan. 26.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Available Sunday

    Toppin (hamstring) is available for Sunday's contest against the Nets.

    Toppin will make his return from a five-game absence due to a left hamstring strain, but it's unclear how big of a role he will have. When healthy, he typically sees between 10-to-15 minutes, though he may see more with Nerlens Noel (foot) sidelined.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Questionable Sunday

    Toppin (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Nets.

    Toppin has missed five straight due to a strained left hamstring. A minutes limit is possible if he returns, though he typically sees only 10-15 minutes when fully healthy.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Questionable Friday

    Toppin (hamstring) is questionable Friday against the Grizzlies.

    Toppin has missed the past four games but could return Friday. If he does, he could be on a minutes limit, though he typically only sees around 10 to 15 minutes.
