Lance Thomas: Waived by Knicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was waived by the Knicks on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Thomas, who averaged 4.5 points, and 2.5 rebounds in 17.0 minutes per game last year, was let go Saturday after five seasons with the Knicks. After shooting better than 40 percent from three from 2015-17, Thomas shot just 27.8 percent from behind the arc in 2018. He'll likely garner some interest later on in free agency and could find a rotational role elsewhere.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Questionable for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (personal) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against Detroit.

Thomas was held out of Tuesday's game while dealing with a personal matter, and the Knicks still aren't sure if he'll be back with the team for Wednesday's regular season finale. Regardless, Thomas isn't much of a fantasy consideration, as he's averaged just 4.8 points and 3.8 rebounds across 21.2 minutes per game over his last five healthy contests.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas figures to have a chance to return for New York's final regular-season contest Wednesday against Detroit.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Headed to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas will come off the bench Friday against San Antonio, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

The Knicks initially named Thomas as the starter at power forward over Noah Vonleh, but they've made a last-minute change, bumping Thomas back to the bench. He's totaled just five total points in his previous two matchups as a reserve.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas will start Friday's contest against the Spurs, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

The move will bump Noah Vonleh to the bench. Across 16 previous starts, Thomas is averaging 5.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 19.0 minutes.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Starting vs. Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas will start Saturday's game against the Kings, Chris Iseman of The Record reports.

With Noah Vonleh (hip) out, Thomas will move into the lineup at his familiar power forward spot. The Duke product played 14 minutes in the Knicks' last game, totaling five points and three rebounds. During a three-game run as the starter at the end of last month, Thomas averaged 9.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 21.3 minutes.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Shifts to bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas will move to a bench role Monday against Sacramento, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

Thomas has been bumped out of the starting lineup in favor of Luke Kornet. Thomas is averaging 7.3 points and 2.8 boards over his previous four contests and was shut out in eight minutes Sunday, so he'll aim to provide a spark off the bench for the Knicks on Monday.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Enters starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas is starting at power forward Sunday against the Spurs.

Surprisingly, it's Thomas who is set to draw the start ahead of both Luke Kornet and Mario Hezonja at power forward. While Hezonja wasn't listed on New York's injury report for their previous contest Friday against Minnesota, he didn't check into the game, so he may still be dealing with a leg injury. Regardless, Thomas will join the first unit for the first time since Jan. 30, and he's averaging 4.8 points and 1.7 rebounds over his preceding six contests.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Sent back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas will come off the bench Friday against the Celtics, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

Thomas has started the past six games for the Knicks, though has had little impact, playing 20-plus minutes just twice. With Luke Kornet healthy, he'll reclaim his starting center spot, with Noah Vonleh sliding down to power forward.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Little impact in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas started at power forward Wednesday and contributed two points (0-1 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 14 minutes in the Knicks' 114-110 loss to the Rockets.

After being withheld from the rotation the previous two games, Thomas got the call to the top unit in place of the injured Luke Kornet (ankle). The assignment didn't translate to big minutes for Thomas, and there's a real chance he's dropped from the top unit in the Knicks' next game Friday against the Nets, a team that boasts a bigger frontcourt than the Rockets. If Thomas does check out of the lineup, Enes Kanter or Mitchell Robinson would be the top candidates to slide in next to Noah Vonleh.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas will draw the start Wednesday against the Rockets, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

With Luke Kornet out of the starting lineup with an ankle injury, Lance Thomas will join the starters in his place. It's unclear if he will remain with the starters for the duration of Kornet's absence. While with the starters, Thomas, who is averaging 15.2 minutes per game, should see a larger role.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Drawing start Sunday vs. 76ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas will start at power forward in Sunday's game against the 76ers, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

Thomas started the first five games of the season but has seen limited action since. He played 21 minutes or less in each of those five starts and could see a similar workload while in the starting lineup Sunday.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Grabs seven boards in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas tallied two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, and one assist in 15 minutes during Friday's 121-106 loss to the Pacers.

Thomas had been a healthy scratch through the first four games of January. While he hauled in a season high rebounding total, Thomas has appeared in only 17 of the team's 42 games thus far, leaving little reason to trust him in most leagues.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Logs first action since November
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas played 20 minutes and finished with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and five rebounds Monday in the Knicks' 128-110 loss to the Suns.

Thomas, who had been sidelined since Nov. 5 after requiring surgery on his sore left knee, had actually been available for Sunday's game against the Pacers, but coach David Fizdale waited until the second half of the back-to-back set to integrate the forward in the rotation. It's unclear if Thomas will be a fixture on the second unit on a consistent basis moving forward, as the Knicks were without the services of four rotation regulars Monday in Tim Hardaway (heel), Damyean Dotson (shoulder), Allonzo Trier (hamstring) and Mitchell Robinson (ankle), leaving more minutes up for grabs than usual.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Available to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

After being out for over a month following knee surgery, Thomas will make his return to the court Sunday in Indiana. Given his lengthy absence, it's unclear where exactly Thomas fits in the Knicks' current rotation, especially given how they've made a point of favoring the younger players. If Thomas does see the floor Sunday afternoon, don't expect a large dose of minutes.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hornets, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

As expected, Lance Thomas will remain sidelined for Friday's game while he continues to work his way back from surgery on his left knee. It's unclear exactly when Thomas will be cleared to return, but his next opportunity will be when the team heads to Indiana on Sunday.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Doubtful to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) is considered doubtful to return for Friday's game against the Hornets, Steve Popper of The Record reports.

Thomas has been out since early November after undergoing a minor procedure on his left knee, and while he's nearing a return, the Knicks don't expect to have him back Friday. His next chance to play will arrive Sunday in Indianapolis. Once Thomas is cleared to play, he'll likely have his workload monitored.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Out at least one month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas underwent surgery on his left knee Thursday and will be re-evaluated in one month, Ian Begley of reports.

Thomas has been dealing with lingering knee soreness for a couple of weeks now, and it was finally determined that surgery was required. Thomas was being used off the bench in a limited fashion, so his absence likely won't have too much impact on the Knicks' rotation going forward, but more minutes should open up for both Mario Hezonja and rookie Kevin Knox.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Questionable Wednesday vs. Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

Thomas has been nursing left knee soreness since late October, but has yet to miss a game because of it. That said, he's only played a total of 13 minutes across the Knicks' past two outings. More information about his availability for Wednesday may arrive closer to the 7:30 p.m. EST tipoff, but even if cleared, Thomas could be excluded from the rotation with forward Kevin Knox back from an ankle injury and ready to fill a larger role.

Knicks' Lance Thomas: Expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (knee) will be available for Friday's game against Golden State.

Thomas was nursing some minor knee soreness following New York's last game, but he'll be good to go off the bench in what figures to be a challenging contest. He's averaging 3.8 points and 3.2 rebounds across 18.4 minutes in five games this season.
