  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Out for remainder of playoffs

    Sims underwent season-ending surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Sims had already missed the last three games due to right shoulder soreness, so his absence won't affect the Knicks' playoff rotation. The procedure will require five months of recovery on rehabilitation, but the 24-year-old center should be available for the start of training camp. Sims averaged 3.4 points and 4.7 rebounds in 15.6 minutes across 52 appearances, including 16 starts, in 2022-23.

    Sims (shoulder) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Cavaliers.

    Sims will miss a third straight game due to right shoulder soreness. He wasn't part of the Knicks' postseason rotation while healthy, so his prolonged absence shouldn't have an impact.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Won't play Friday

    Sims has been ruled out for Friday's Game 3 against the Cavaliers due to a sore right shoulder.

    Sims hasn't played in either of the first two games of the series, so his absence shouldn't impact the Knicks' postseason rotation.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Dominant rebounding in loss

    Sims tallied eight points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 17 rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 37 minutes during Thursday's 117-108 loss to the Mad Ants.

    Sims was two points shy of a double-double during his brief stint with the Westchester Knicks. Despite posting a game-high 17 rebounds, his point differential was the lowest on the team at minus-17.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Called up to parent club

    Sims was recalled by the NBA Knicks on Thursday after a brief G League stint.

    Sims was assigned to the Westchester Knicks earlier Thursday and will return to the NBA following Westchester's game against Fort Wayne. The center has not appeared in an NBA game since March 3 and shouldn't factor into the team's rotation.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Sent to G League

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

    Sims hasn't played in the NBA since Mar. 3, after starting in 14 games earlier in the season. However, he should see increased opportunities in the G League.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Not starting Friday

    Sims isn't starting Friday's game against the Wizards.

    With Mitchell Robinson (thumb) back in the mix, Sims will retreat to a bench role after starting 14 straight games. Across 30 games as a reserve, Sims has averaged 3.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 0.6 blocks in 12.3 minutes.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Minutes climb back up Tuesday

    Sims collected eight points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), nine rebounds, two steals and one assist in 35 minutes in Tuesday's 102-98 win over the Magic.

    Sims' playing time had been trending down even while he's maintained a spot in the starting five in place of the injured Mitchell Robinson (thumb), but the second-year big man out of Texas saw a big uptick in minutes Tuesday after playing no more than 27 in any of his previous five outings. The elevated run was a byproduct of backup center Isaiah Hartenstein accruing five fouls in just 13 minutes of court time, so Sims could easily see his minutes dip dramatically Friday in Philadelphia. Before running into foul trouble Tuesday, Hartenstein had handily outproduced Sims while playing more minutes in each of the previous four contests, despite continuing to come off the bench.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Zero impact despite start

    Sims produced one rebound, two assists, one block and one steal in 21 minutes during Saturday's 134-128 overtime loss to the Clippers.

    Sims remained in the starting lineup but was once again benched down the stretch. Despite his aforementioned role, Sims has been outplayed by Isaiah Hartenstein of late. He has failed to score in three straight games, adding basically nothing in terms of supporting stats. Hartenstein is clearly the preferred option right now.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Double-digit boards in loss

    Sims finished with six points (3-3 FG), 10 rebounds, one block and one steal in 27 minutes during Saturday's 122-115 loss to the Nets.

    Sims remained in the starting lineup Saturday, walking away with a modest fantasy line, including 10 rebounds. Despite being handed the starting position with Mitchell Robinson (thumb) out, Sims doesn't offer a lot in terms of overall value. He should be viewed as a streaming option across all standard leagues, at least until he can demonstrate a more well-rounded skillset.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Stays hot from field

    Sims finished with 10 points (5-5 FG), seven rebounds, three assists and one block across 33 minutes during Sunday's 125-116 loss to the Raptors.

    Sims was perfect from the field for a second straight game, as he's now 11-for-11 in his last two matchups. He also made an impact on the boards by collecting five of seven rebounds on the defensive end. Sims should continue to see his name in the starting lineup until Mitchell Robinson (thumb) returns from injury.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Perfect from the field in start

    Sims finished with 12 points (6-6 FG), eight rebounds and two steals over 28 minutes during Friday's 139-124 loss to the Hawks.

    Sims got the starting nod in place of injured Mitchell Robinson (thumb) and did an excellent job while on the court. He came close to a double-double in 28 minutes of playing time and converted all of his shot attempts. Though Sims is likely to see only light usage if he continues as the Knicks' starting center, the playing time he received Friday relative to Isaiah Hartenstein (17 minutes) suggests Sims may be the preferred fantasy option while Robinson is sidelined for at least the next three weeks.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Earns starting nod

    Sims will enter the starting five for Friday's game against the Hawks.

    Sims will get the first crack at the starting center job with Mitchell Robinson out at least three weeks with a broken thumb. However, the Knicks will likely run more of a rotation at the five with Isaiah Hartenstein and Obi Toppin also vying for center minutes. Sims is a solid streaming option considering his strong per-36 output of 10.1 points, 12.1 rebounds and 1.8 blocks.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Crashes offensive glass

    Sims tallied 19 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists and one block in 28 minutes during Monday's 131-111 win over the Go-Go.

    Sims collected seven offensive rebounds Monday, helping the Knicks out-rebound the Go-Go 54 to 39. Sims is averaging 19.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 2.0 assists in 25.5 minutes across two games in the G League this season.
