Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Balanced line in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton provided 16 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six assists, five rebounds and a steal across 31 minutes in Sunday's 96-84 win over the Pistons.

Payton is in the midst of an excellent three-game run of production during which he's averaging 18.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 7.7 assists. He's also converting an eye-popping 61.1 percent of his shots, which is 17 percent higher than his season-long average.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Another near triple-double Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton recorded 18 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds and eight assists across 30 minutes during Friday's 126-103 loss to the Thunder.

Payton continues to stuff the stat sheet lately, and he's emerged as one of the most stable aspects of the Knicks' gameplan. Over the past two games, he's totaled 38 points, 17 assists and 16 rebounds. When seeing over 30 minutes this season, he's averaging 11.9 points, 8.2 assists (2.6 turnovers), 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Teases triple-double against Utah
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton pitched in 20 points (8-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine assists and seven rebounds in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 112-104 loss to the Jazz.

Payton finished one dime and a few boards shy of a triple-double while committing just one turnover. He did all this despite a modest minute total, and Payton has been one of the few pleasant surprises for the Knicks thus far this season. He'll look to build on this performance heading into Friday's tilt against the Thunder.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Finds teammates in win over Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton recorded three points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-4 FT), 10 assists and one rebound across 33 minutes during Saturday's 125-115 win over the Bulls.

Payton's shooting was a disaster, but he helped fuel a victory by getting his teammates involved. Saturday's performance marked the eighth time this season that Payton has racked up double-digit assists. In February, he averaged 12.5 points, 9.8 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 2.3 steals in 32.5 minutes.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton put up 18 points (7-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 12 assists and six rebounds in 36 minutes during Thursday's loss to the 76ers.

In his second game back from a two-game absence due to an ankle issue, Payton saw a heavier workload after Dennis Smith Jr didn't return from a possible concussion, and he answered the call. His shooting may not be appealing, but Payton is adept at contributing in certain other areas for fantasy purposes. The 26-year old is producing a level of value worth owning in most leagues, but his 54.8 percent shooting from the charity stripe is a career-low. This is coming just one year after springing to a career-high 74.3 percent in the 2018-19 season. While that number was nothing to write home about, if Payton can work his way back up to that free-throw percentage he displayed last season, his fantasy value would spike tremendously.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Hands out nine dimes versus Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton (ankle) pitched in six points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), nine assists, two rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 107-101 loss to the Hornets.

Payton returned to the lineup following a two-game absence with a sore ankle and logged the second-most minutes on the team. While he committed six turnovers, Payton provided a decent line considering it was his first game back. He'll look to build on this effort heading into Thursday's matchup versus a shorthanded 76ers team that's already been without Ben Simmons (back) and could be missing Joel Embiid (shoulder) as well.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Available vs. Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Hornets.

As expected, Payton has been cleared to return after missing the past two games with a sore right ankle. When healthy, the point guard is averaging 14.6 points, 9.4 assists, 6.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists in five games this month.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Expects to return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton (ankle) is considered probable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

The point guard missed the previous two games with a sore right ankle, but he looks to be set for a return Wednesday night. Payton started every healthy game since Dec. 21, so he'll likely reclaim his spot in the starting lineup.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton (ankle) will not play Monday against the Rockets, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

Payton will miss a second straight game as he continues to recover from a sore right ankle. With Frank Ntilikina (groin) also unavailable, Dennis Smith Jr. should benefit from increased run at point guard.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against the Rockets.

Payton missed Friday's loss to the Pacers and didn't take part in Saturday's practice, but he may be able to retake the court Monday. Frank Ntilikina (groin) is also questionable, leaving Dennis Smith as the team's top fully healthy point guard.

February 22, 2020 01:36 PM
Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Held out of Saturday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton (ankle) didn't practice Saturday, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Payton's inability to practice doesn't bode well for his availability Monday against Houston. Look for the team to provide an update clarifying his status ahead of the contest.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton (ankle) was ruled out for Friday's game against the Pacers.

Payton was considered questionable with a sore right ankle but won't be available coming out of the All-Star break. Dennis Smith and Frank Ntilikina should see increased run at the point for the Knicks.

February 20, 2020 01:16 PM
Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Questionable for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton is considered questionable for Friday's game against Indiana due to a sore right ankle, Ian Begley of SNY reports.

Payton apparently tweaked the ankle sometime over the All-Star break, and the Knicks will wait to see how he feels Friday before making a call on his status. Payton has started all but two games for the Knicks since Dec. 21.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Another solid outing in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton pitched in 19 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-9 FT), eight assists, five steals and four rebounds in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 114-96 loss to the Wizards.

Payton reached double figures in scoring for the seventh straight game and has amassed 16 steals across the last four tilts. He's in the midst of by far the best month of the campaign. Moreover, Payton seems like a strong bet to keep producing well-rounded counting stats as long as he's earning 30-plus minutes, which he has now done in 10 straight contests.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: One assist shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton registered 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine assists, seven steals and four rebounds in 33 minutes during Thursday's 105-103 win over the Magic.

Payton has logged 30 or more minutes in seven straight contests and has been extremely productive during that stretch, as he is averaging 12.4 points, 10.3 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game in that aforementioned span. He has dished out eight or more assists in each one of those contests as well.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Triple-double in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton scored 17 points (8-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding 15 assists, 11 rebounds and a steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 139-134 overtime win over the Cavaliers.

It's his first triple-double as a Knick and the 17th of his career. Payton's offense remains erratic, but he's otherwise delivering solid fantasy value in the Knicks' starting lineup with 10.5 points, 8.5 assists, 5.7 boards and 1.5 steals over his last 12 games.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Rejoins starting lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton is starting Monday against the Cavaliers.

Payton will reclaim his spot in the starting lineup Monday after missing Saturday's game against the Pacers while serving a one-game suspension. Across his past five games, Payton has averaged 11.0 points, 9.6 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 33.0 minutes.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Hit with one-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was suspended for one game for his role in Wednesday night's altercation against Memphis, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Payton will be forced to miss Saturday's matchup against the Pacers as a result of the suspension. Frank Ntilikina (groin) and Dennis Smith should take over at point guard during Payton's brief absence. He'll be eligible to return Monday in Cleveland.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Gets ejected, may face suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was ejected in the final minute of Wednesday's 127-106 loss to the Grizzlies for his Flagrant 2 foul on Memphis' Jae Crowder, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports. The point guard turned in 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes prior to his ejection.

Though he turned in one of his best stat lines of the season, Payton's strong outing was marred by the suspension or fine that likely awaits him after he took his frustration out on Crowder, who stole an inbounds pass while the Grizzlies were up 15 with less than a minute to go. When Crowder attempted a three-pointer seconds later, Payton shoved him into the stands, inciting a scrum that also resulted in ejections for Crowder and Marcus Morris. Expect the NBA to announcement punishment for Payton at some point before the Knicks' next game Saturday in Indiana.

Knicks' Elfrid Payton: Fills up stat sheet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton scored 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and added eight rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 97-92 loss to Charlotte.

Payton was the Knicks' third-leading scorer on the evening, which perhaps goes a long way toward explaining the loss. While the 25-year-old had a pretty standard game in terms of points and assists, the eight rebounds were his second-highest total for the entire season.
