Knicks' Taj Gibson: Nice effort in loss to Phoenix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson had 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in Friday's loss to the Suns.

Nerlens Noel fouled out in 22 minutes, so Gibson was called upon for a slightly larger workload (25 minutes) off the bench. The veteran took full advantage, scoring in double figures for the first time in over a month while racking up a pair of blocks to give him eight total over the last three games.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Shifts back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

With Nerlens Noel rejoining the starting five after a one-game absence, Gibson will return to his usual bench role. The 35-year-old is averaging 5.2 points and 5,6 rebounds in 20.9 minutes per game this season.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Excellent on defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson registered six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 12 rebounds, five blocks and two assists across 33 minutes in Monday's win over the Grizzlies.

Gibson started for the first time since April 14 due to Nerlens Noel's ankle injury, and he responded well to the opportunity with strong contributions on defense and efficiency -- albeit in a limited role -- at the other end. Gibson figures to work as the Knicks' starting center if Noel misses any additional time, but even after Monday's performance he's not much of a fantasy consideration.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will start Monday's game against the Gizzlies at center.

Gibson will draw his first start since Apr. 14 due to an injury to Nerlens Noel (ankle). Gibson logged 32 minutes Sunday against the Rockets and figures to handle a similar workload Monday evening.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Will play in goggles Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (eye) will play in goggles during Saturday's contest against the Raptors, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

Gibson suffered a lacerated right eyelid during Wednesday's game against the Hawks, but he'll suit up with some protective eyewear Saturday. This month, the veteran has averaged 5.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in 22.0 minutes.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Unlikely to return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson is doubtful to return after exiting Wednesday's game against the Hawks with a lacerated right eyelid.

Gibson was down for a long time after taking a shot to the face from Atlanta's Solomon Hill. He was bleeding and eventually went to the locker room, so it appears that he is likely done for the night.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Starting for Noel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will start in Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

With Nerlens Noel (ankle) ruled out shortly before tip, Gibson will make just his second start of the season Wednesday. The 35-year-old is averaging 4.9 points and 5.2 rebounds across 20.3 minutes per game this season.

March 29, 2021 07:00 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Returns to bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will come off the bench Monday against the Heat.

The 35-year-old made a spot start Saturday and had six points, eight rebounds, four assists and four blocks in 34 minutes, but he'll move back to the bench with Julius Randle (thigh) rejoining the lineup Monday. Gibson should operate as New York's secondary center behind starter Nerlens Noel now that Mitchell Robinson (foot) is sidelined indefinitely.

March 27, 2021 07:28 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Starting for injured Randle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will start Saturday's game against the Bucks.

With Julius Randle (thigh) sidelined, Gibson will draw his first start of the season. Since the start of February, Gibson has averaged 5.1 points and 5.0 rebounds in 19.6 minutes per game.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Matches season high
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson managed 10 points (3-5 FG, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal Thursday in a 106-102 win against the Wizards.

Gibson was able to tie his season high of 10 points Thursday thanks to his ability to grab seven offensive rebounds, including a couple crucial ones late in the comeback win. The veteran's 27 minutes was a byproduct of Nerlens Noel's injury (shoulder) coupled with Mitchell Robinson, who continues to remain on a minutes restriction after recently coming back from a hand injury. Don't expect many more near double-doubles considering Gibson was a healthy DNP for the last two games.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Big minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) played 26 minutes and provided seven points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, two steals and two blocks Thursday in the Knicks' 134-101 loss to the Bucks.

Gibson settled back in as the backup center behind Nerlens Noel after missing the Knicks' final three games prior to the All-Star break with a sprained left ankle. Given the big minutes he played, Gibson doesn't look like he'll face any restrictions moving forward, but he'll struggle to see this level of playing time in more competitive contests.

March 11, 2021 06:20 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) has been cleared to play in Thursday's game against the Bucks.

A sprained left ankle kept Gibson out of the final three games before the break, but he used the extra time to recover and will be back to availability off the bench Thursday. With Mitchell Robinson (hand) still sidelined, expect Gibson to function as the primary backup to Nerlens Noel.

March 10, 2021 03:48 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against Milwaukee, Ian Begley of SNY reports.

The veteran big man missed the final three games before the break with a sprained left ankle, but he's made some progress in recent days and will be evaluated again after shootaround Thursday morning. If Gibson is able to play, he'll likely return to his role as the primary backup to Nerlens Noel while Mitchell Robinson works back from a hand injury.

Knicks' Taj Gibson: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) will not play Thursday against Detroit.

As expected, the veteran will miss a third straight game as he deals with a sprained left ankle. With the All-Star break set to begin Friday, Gibson will have seven more days to recover before the Knicks resume play next Thursday at Milwaukee.

March 3, 2021 05:40 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Doubtful vs. Pistons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) is doubtful for Thursday's matchup against the Pistons.

Gibson is likely to miss a third game in a row as he recovers from a sprained left ankle. In his place, Kevin Knox and Obi Toppin are candidates to see expanded roles.

March 2, 2021 10:44 AM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) will not play Tuesday against the Spurs, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Gibson did not travel with the team and will miss his second game in a row with a left ankle sprain. The team has only one more game left prior to the All-Star Break, so the 35-year-old could be held out through the break if the injury lingers.

February 28, 2021 01:48 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Pistons.

Gibson picked up a left ankle sprain in Saturday's win over Indiana, which will keep him sidelined in the second half of a back-to-back. Obi Toppin should see an increased workload with Gibson on the bench.

February 27, 2021 08:56 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Exits due to ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will not return to Saturday's game against the Pacers due to an ankle injury, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

The ankle injury that Gibson suffered during the contest is causing him enough discomfort to prevent him from returning. In his absence, Obi Toppin and Kevin Knox could see more playing time.

February 24, 2021 01:08 AM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Secures 11 rebounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson recorded eight points (2-3 FG, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes during New York's 114-106 loss to Golden State on Tuesday.

After signing with New York in January and sitting out several games due to COVID-19 protocols, Gibson has carved out a role in the rotation over the last month. His 24 minutes Tuesday were the most he's played this season. The center also was able to come away with a new season-high rebound total. Gibson is not someone to pursue in fantasy leagues as he is only playing 15.3 minutes per game.

February 15, 2021 10:40 PM
Knicks' Taj Gibson: Logs 17 minutes Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson had one point (1-2 FT), three rebounds and one block during Monday's win over Atlanta.

Gibson made his third straight appearance but this time wasn't much of a factor in 17 minutes of action. Gibson has played well off the bench considering his minutes, averaging 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds over his past three outings before Monday.
