Knicks' Jericho Sims: Misses practice
Sims missed Saturday's practice due to general aches and pains, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
It does not sound like Sims is dealing with anything serious, just the usual soreness from training camp ramping up. Barring any setbacks, he should presumably be ready for the team's season opener. He is not expected to factor heavily in the rotation once the season kicks off but will be available off the bench for frontcourt depth if needed.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Back with Knicks on three-year deal
Sims and the Knicks agreed Thursday to a three-year contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Sims was drafted 58th overall by the Knicks last season and saw meaningful action as New York dealt with frontcourt injuries. He appeared in 41 games (five starts) and averaged 2.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 13.5 minutes. Per 36 minutes, he averaged 5.8 points, 11.0 rebounds (4.0 offensive), 1.4 blocks and 1.4 assists. Sims will be competing for backup center minutes with Isaiah Hartenstein.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Pulls down 14 rebounds
Sims registered six points (3-4 FG), 14 rebounds, one assist and two steals in 39 minutes during Sunday's 105-94 victory over the Raptors.
Sims didn't register impressive scoring figures but was a dominant force on the glass, and in fact, the 14 rebounds represented a season-high mark for him. He pulled down at least nine rebounds in each of the final three games of the regular season, starting each of those contests. He ended the season with averages of just 2.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game, though, as he saw an expanded role only down the stretch when the Knicks were out of the playoff race.... See More ...

Knicks' Jericho Sims: Gritty performance despite loss
Sims finished Wednesday's 110-98 loss to the Nets with 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-6 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and one steal in 35 minutes.
Sims notched the first double-double of his career Wednesday. Despite being listed as a power forward, Sims operates as an undersized center at 6-foot-9, but his 250-pound frame makes him an imposing force inside. Per-36 minutes, Sims is averaging 10.9 rebounds and 5.8 points on 76.1 percent shooting from the field.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Will start for Robinson
Sims will start Wednesday's game against the Nets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
With Mitchell Robinson (illness) ruled out, Sims will move into the lineup at center for his first start since March 25. The rookie out of Texas has averaged 3.1 points and 5.3 rebounds over his last 12 appearances (19.0 MPG).... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Back to bench
Sims will come off the bench during Sunday's contest against the Pistons.
With Mitchell Robinson (back) back in the starting lineup, Sims will operate off the bench. Before drawing back-to-back starts, the rookie had averaged just 2.6 points and 6.0 rebounds in 19.2 minutes per game over his previous five games.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Solid yet unspectacular Friday
Sims had six points (3-3 FG), seven rebounds, two assists and one block over 28 minutes during Friday's 111-103 victory over Miami.
Sims remained in the starting lineup despite the return of Mitchell Robinson, ending the night with a serviceable fantasy line. It is unclear if this move is going to stick moving forward or if it was simply a way of easing Robinson back into things. If he does hold down the starting role, Sims could be someone to grab in deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Getting first career start
Sims will start Wednesday's matchup against the Hornets, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.
Sims will get the first start of his career with Nerlens Noel (foot) and Mitchell Robinson (back) sidelined. He's been a consistent part of the rotation since late February. In the six games that he's seen at least 20 minutes, Sims has averaged 4.5 points and 7.7 rebounds.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Generates team-high rebound total
Sims ended Sunday's 110-107 loss to the Nets with six points (3-3 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block over 23 minutes.
Although Sims scored only six points, he was a rebound magnet during his season-high 23 minutes on the floor. The 2021 second-round draft pick usually has minimal impact, but we could see more of Sims as the team's playoff hopes dwindle.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Steps in as backup center
Sims recorded zero points (0-1 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 18 minutes in Sunday's 125-109 loss to the 76ers.
Prior to the All-Star break, the two-way rookie out of Texas had appeared in only two of the Knicks' last eight games, but he was a surprise inclusion in head coach Tom Thibodeau's rotation for both of the first two contests of the second half. On Sunday, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reported that Nerlens Noel is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot that had left him available only in an emergency for the past two contests, so Sims could end up losing hold of his role as Mitchell Robinson's top backup once Noel is healthy. Though Sims brought some energy off the bench Sunday, neither he nor Robinson had any answer for Joel Embiid, who made 27 trips to the free-throw line while both Knicks centers fouled out despite playing fewer than 20 minutes apiece....

Knicks' Jericho Sims: Heads to G League
Sims was assigned to the G League's Westchester Knicks on Tuesday.
Sims appeared in two of the last three games for New York, but he played just four total minutes. He's expected to see increased playing time during his stint in the G League.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Shines in G League on Tuesday
Sims registered 17 points (8-11 FG, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and two steals over 32 minutes Tuesday in Westchester's 110-105 victory over Motor City.
Sims has spent most of the season in a reserve role with the New York Knicks, but he was recently assigned to the G League to allow him to get more playing time. The rookie averaged only 6.5 minutes in 13 games with New York, preventing him from making much noise in the box score. Sims should get plenty of run with Westchester, for whom he is averaging 14.0 points, 15.5 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in two games this season.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Assigned to G League
Sims was assigned to the G League's Westchester Knicks on Tuesday.
Sims and Miles McBride will both be available for Westchester in Tuesday's contest against the Motor City Drive following their assignments. Sims has spent most of the season as a reserve for the NBA squad, but he's expected to get extended run during his stint in the G League. Sims recently exited the NBA's COVID-19 protocols and appeared in both of New York's past two games, playing five minutes in total.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Good to go Tuesday
Sims (COVID-19 protocols) is available for Tuesday's game against the Pacers.
Sims was considered questionable due to conditioning concerns after clearing the health and safety protocols, but he's ready to go after sitting out five games. Most of New York's frontcourt is available, so he's unlikely to have a significant role going forward.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Clears COVID-19 protocols
Sims cleared the NBA's health and safety protocols Monday and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Pacers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Sims landed in COVID-19 protocols Christmas Day and has been sidelined since. It's unclear if he will be available for Tuesday's contest against the Pacers. However, he's only played double-digits minutes three times this season, so his potential availability shouldn't impact Tom Thibodeau's rotations.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Out Christmas Day
Sims is in the NBA's health and safety protocols and will not play in Saturday's Christmas Day matchup with the Hawks.
Sims's absence means Mitchell Robinson, Taj Gibson, Julius Randle and Obi Toppin will be the only frontcourt players available for the Knicks, as Nerlens Noel (COVID-19 protocols) is also out.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Jericho Sims: Plays 22 minutes off bench
Sims ended Thursday's 124-117 loss to Washington with six points (3-3 FG) and six rebounds across 22 minutes.
The rookie's stat line was nothing remarkable, but it's notable that he served as the No. 2 center behind Mitchell Robinson -- who fouled out in 25 minutes -- with Nerlens Noel in COVID-19 protocols. Meanwhile, Taj Gibson saw only seven minutes of action off the bench, finishing with two points and three rebounds. Sims hasn't shown nearly enough to warrant attention in most fantasy leagues, but he's had some explosive performances in the G League, so he's a player to monitor for dynasty formats....

Knicks' Jericho Sims: Grabs 19 boards in G League contest
Sims tallied 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 FT), 19 rebounds and two blocked shots over 39 minutes for Westchester in a loss to Delaware on Friday.
Sims got an opportunity to log big minutes for New York's G League squad after playing in only one of the NBA Knicks' previous nine games. The center showed off his board-crashing ability, leading all players with 19 rebounds. Sims has spent most of his time this season in the NBA, but he has accumulated only 58 total minutes, so he could be assigned to Westchester on occasion in order to see more game action....
