Kornet finished with 12 points (5-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt), 13 rebounds, six blocks, and four assists in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 96-86 victory over the Bulls.
Kornet blocked a career-high six shots in Tuesday's win, adding 12 points and 13 rebounds. He has come on strong to end the season and has certainly impacted more than just a few fantasy leagues. He has interesting upside should he ever carve out a regular role but at this stage, his playing time heading into next season is far from set.
Kornet tallied 17 points (6-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, four blocks, one assist, and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 113-110 victory over Washington.
Kornet bounced back after a couple of poor showings, finishing Sunday's victory with 17 points to go with four blocked shots. The playing time remains inconsistent, however, he has now blocked a combined 13 shots over his past five games, also connecting on 14 triples. His unique skill set may afford him some interest in the upcoming fantasy draft but that will, of course, depend on his role moving forward into next season.
Kornet will come off the bench Wednesday against the Magic, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
Coach David Fizdale will give Mario Hezonja the nod at power forward, despite Kornet averaging 20.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and a combined 4.5 blocks/steals over the past two games. As is often the case with the Knicks, it's not clear if this move is temporary or permanent.
Coach David Fizdale ran a streamlined eight-man rotation Monday, allowing Kornet to once again handle an elevated role as the Knicks' starting power forward. Kornet has delivered on both occasions, averaging 20.5 points, 7.0 boards, 5.0 triples, 3.0 blocks, 2.0 assists and 1.5 steals in both contests. Fizdale has often changed his rotation on a whim this season, but with five players on the roster currently tending to injuries and center DeAndre Jordan perhaps shut down for good, the opportunity looks to be there for Kornet to continue receiving sizable minutes the rest of the way.
Kornet finished with 17 points (5-14 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, and three blocks in 36 minutes during Saturday's 100-92 loss to Miami.
Kornet moved into the starting lineup Saturday, replacing Mario Hezonja who was an apparent DNP-CD. This is not surprising at all given how bad the Knicks rotations have been across the season, however, Kornet took full advantage with a gem of a performance. This was basically impossible to see coming and chances are he could be out of the rotation in the next game. Outside of Emmanuel Mudiay and Mitchell Robinson, the Knicks players are all too hard to trust beyond streaming.
