Knicks' Taj Gibson: Likely to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Back spasms forced Gibson to miss Thursday's loss to Philadelphia, but he should be back as soon as Saturday. Across his past nine appearances, he's averaging 8.7 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15.9 minutes.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Likely out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (back) is expected to sit out Thursday against the 76ers, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Gibson is dealing with a bout of back spasms and is expected to sit out Thursday in Philadelphia as a result. In his absence, Bobby Portis will start at center, while Mitchell Robinson could also see increased run.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Efficient outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson posted 12 points (6-6 FG), 5 rebounds, an assist and a block during the Knicks' 100-92 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday night.

After failing to reach double-digits in scoring throughout the month of December, Gibson now has scored at least 10 in six of 12 January contests. Gibson is known as a steady veteran, but often his contributions don't resonate in the box score. He is likely best left on the wire and is a candidate to see his playing time wane as the season goes on.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Leads charge in loss to Pels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson scored a team-high 19 points (8-8 FG, 3-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds and a block in 26 minutes during Friday's 123-111 loss to the Pelicans.

The veteran big put together his best scoring effort of the year, scoring in double digits for only the second time in his last 23 contests. While Gibson has been a fixture in the Knicks' starting five, his minutes have been capped with Mitchell Robinson and Bobby Portis both fighting for court time as well, and it might take a trade for any of the trio to grow into reliable fantasy value.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Continues to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson produced just four points and one assist in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 128-104 loss to Utah.

Gibson played just 12 minutes Wednesday, once again failing to have any real impact. Despite the consistent role, Gibson has barely been a top-300 player over the past two weeks. He is well and truly past his prime and it would seem only a matter of time before he is out of the rotation. Gibson is not an asset anywhere outside of the deepest formats.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Fails to score in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson had just four rebounds and one assist in 12 minutes during Thursday's 94-82 victory over the Nets.

Gibson was back in the starting lineup after missing the previous game with an illness. He played just 12 minutes, missing all four of his shot attempts. The Knicks seem reluctant to start Mitchell Robinson despite the fact he is clearly the better option. Gibson should remain in his current role for the foreseeable future; however, there is no reason to pick him up outside of the deepest leagues.

December 26, 2019 06:16 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will start Thursday's game against the Nets, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Following a one-game absence, Gibson will return to the starting five. In December, he's averaging 3.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 16.8 minutes.

December 25, 2019 05:48 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (illness) is off the injury report ahead of Thursday's game against the Nets.

Gibson missed the Knicks' previous game due to an illness, but he's feeling better ahead of Thursday's game. In December, he's averaging 3.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 16.8 minutes.

December 24, 2019 02:08 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Trending toward playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Nets, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Gibson was also questionable for Monday's game but was unable to take the court. However, reports indicate that both Gibson and Marcus Morris (Achilles) are feeling better trending toward playing for Thursday's tilt against the Nets.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (illness) won't play Monday against the Wizards.

Gibson won't take the court due to sickness. Mitchell Robinson draws the start at center in Gibson's absence.

December 23, 2019 12:44 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson is listed as questionable for Monday's tilt with the Wizards due to an illness.

Gibson's status Monday is up in the air after the veteran forward fell ill overnight. If he's held out, Mitchell Robinson would be the favorite to see additional minutes.

December 21, 2019 12:20 AM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Plays just 14 minutes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson totaled two points, seven rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes during Friday's 129-114 loss to Miami.

Gibson continues to start for the Knicks but is far from a viable fantasy asset. The teams' reluctance to move Mitchell Robinson into the starting lineup is at least ensuring Gibson has a role with the team. It would make sense the Robinson will eventually oust Gibson, at which point he could fall out of the rotation altogether. Despite starting, Gibson should not be a target of anyone outside of the deepest formats.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Nine rebounds against Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson had seven points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 21 minutes of a 132-88 loss to the Bucks on Monday.

Gibson posted a season high in rebounds against the Bucks on a night his team will want to quickly forget. He also posted a season high in blocks in the losing effort. The Knicks will face the Nuggets on Thursday.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Effective shooting in limited time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson posted 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in Wednesday's 109-104 loss to the 76ers.

In his seventh start of the season, Gibson played his fewest amount of minutes since October, yet he was still able to reach double-digit scoring for the third time this season and missed only one shot. As a starter Gibson has played well, averaging 9.1 points (62.2 percent of field goals) and 6.1 rebounds in 19.4 minutes per game.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach David Fizdale said Gibson (foot) will start at center Saturday against the Hornets, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

Gibson was deemed probable due to left foot soreness, but there doesn't appear to be much question about his availability for Saturday. The veteran big man will make his fifth straight start at center while Mitchell Robinson comes off the bench.

November 15, 2019 02:24 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Listed as probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson didn't practice Friday due to a sore left plantar fascia but is considered probable for Saturday's game against Charlotte.

Gibson, R.J. Barrett (quadriceps) and Frank Ntilikina (abdomen/groin) all missed practice, but all are expected to play. Gibson has started each of the Knicks' last four games, though it's possible his minutes are reduced if the injury is still bothering him.

November 12, 2019 11:04 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Scores 17 in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson generated 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 120-102 loss to the Bulls.

Gibson was extremely efficient offensively while turning in a fairly well-rounded stat line. He continues to start at center with Mitchell Robinson (concussion) sidelined, though it's possible Robinson will be ready to return for Thursday's matchup with the Mavericks. If not though, Gibson can be expected to draw another start.
