Ron Baker: Inks deal in Russia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker signed a one-year contract Thursday with CSKA Moscow of the EuroLeague, Sportando reports.

Undrafted out of Wichita State in 2016, Baker ended up starting double-digit games as a rookie for the Knicks, but, due in part to injuries, he quickly fell out of favor and appeared in only 44 games over the last two seasons. Baker finished last year in Washington, where he failed to score a single point in 45 total minutes of action. The 26-year-old will now head overseas, where he'll have a much better chance to play an integral role on a night-to-night basis.

Ron Baker: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker underwent surgery to repair a torn right labrum Thursday, and he's expected to make a full recovery in 4-to-6 months, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Baker's shoulder was repaired by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, one of the top sports surgeons out there. Although Baker is currently a free agent, he should return to health sometime during the summer and could end up earning a spot on an NBA roster by the start of the 2019-20 campaign. However, given his struggles with the Knicks and Wizards this season, Baker is unlikely to secure a substantial role in any team's rotation.

Ron Baker: Waived by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker has been waived by Washington on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

After being let go by the Knicks on Dec. 13, Baker found a new home with the Wizards on Dec 19. However with the Wizards, Baker was a non-factor offensively as he only averaged 11.3 minutes across four appearances while failing to score. The move doesn't come to much of a surprise as the Wizards would of had to make Bakers' contract guaranteed before the deadline Monday. After clearing waivers, Baker will become a free agent.

Wizards' Ron Baker: Latches on with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Wizards, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

After being cut by the Knicks a week ago, Baker will stick on the East Coast and join a Wizards squad in need of guard depth following the recent trades of Austin Rivers and Kelly Oubre to the Suns. In a corresponding move, the Wizards will waive Okaro White. Baker suited up in 11 games for the Knicks this season, averaging 1.3 points and 1.2 assists in 9.7 minutes per contest.

Ron Baker: Let go by New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker was waived by the Knicks on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Due to the emergence of young talent such as Allonzo Trier and Damyean Dotson, Baker found himself on the outside of the rotation looking in for most of the season. Now, with Trier's two-way deal being converted into a full-time NBA contract, Baker was waived in order to create an open roster spot for the rookie.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Inactive Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker is inactive Saturday against the Bucks, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Baker is being used sparingly by coach David Fizdale. The guard has played 98 minutes this season, totaling nine points, 10 assists, six boards and four steals.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Listed as active
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (illness) was active for Sunday's matchup with Memphis but did not play.

Baker was a DNP-Coach's Decision in a 103-98 victory over the Grizzlies. He'd been battling an illness, although it appears he was available off the bench if needed. Baker hasn't taken the court since Nov. 14 against Oklahoma City and is unlikely to see much if any playing time in the near future.

Knicks' Ron Baker: May not play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker is dealing with an illness and may not be with the Knicks for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Ian Begley of reports.

Baker should be considered questionable for the contest. His absence wouldn't affect the Knicks' rotation, however, as he's seen just spot minutes all season.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Available Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (face) is available Wednesday against the Heat, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Baker needed stitches after taking an inadvertent elbow to the face during Monday's game. He's good to go Wednesday.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Suffers facial laceration, doesn't return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker exited Monday's game against Milwaukee after taking an inadvertent elbow to the face, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Baker suffered the injury after playing just one minute and he wouldn't come back into the game after heading to the locker room. The extent of the cut isn't clear at this moment, but given the nature of the issue, he figures to be available for Wednesday's contest in Miami.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Starting preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker will pick up the start at point guard in Friday's preseason finale against the Nets, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

The point guard job is largely considered a two-man race between Frank Ntilikina and Trey Burke, with Emmanuel Mudiay potentially being considered as well. However, it appears coach David Fizdale wants to get a long look at Baker in the preseason finale, so he'll draw the start at point guard. Despite the start, Baker should open the season in a bench role and will likely struggle to provide any sort of utility in the bulk of fantasy formats.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Plays 17 minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker played 17 minutes in Monday's preseason win over the Wizards.

In his first action since missing extended time with a shoulder injury, Baker scored seven points, hitting both of his field goal attempts -- including a three-pointer -- as well as going 2-for-2 at the line. The Wichita State product exercised his player option for the 2018-19 season but likely won't be a major factor in the Knicks' guard rotation.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Exercises player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (shoulder) officially exercised his player option for the 2018-19 season, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.

The decision doesn't come as much of a surprise considering the option will pay Baker more than $4.5 million next season. The former Wichita State standout was limited to just 29 games in 2017-18, and he underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder in early February. In those 29 games, the 25-year-old averaged just 2.4 points, 1.6 assists and 1.0 rebound per game while shooting 33.9 percent from the floor.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Set to undergo shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker will undergo an arthroscopic procedure on his shoulder later in the week and will miss the next 4-to-6 months, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.

Baker has been battling shoulder issues for the past week, and the Knicks have now decided that surgery is the best course of action for the 24-year-old, who had been a regular off the bench earlier in the season. The procedure will sideline Baker for the rest of the season, but the 4-to-6 month timetable should allow him to be back at close to full strength for the start of the 2018-19 campaign. Baker holds a player option for next season, which he'll likely opt into.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Out indefinitely with shoulder injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker will be out indefinitely after an MRI revealed a dislocated right shoulder and torn labrum, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

Baker suffered the injury during Tuesday's contest against the Nets. The initial X-ray came back negative, but an MRI revealed significant damage. With his extended absence, Frank Ntilikina and Trey Burke could see extra run, though Baker was averaging just 13.3 minutes in 29 games played this season.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Not traveling with team to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (shoulder) will not travel with the Knicks for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.

Baker suffered a right shoulder injury during Tuesday's game against the Nets and while a subsequent X-ray came back negative, the Knicks will now send him for a follow-up MRI on Wednesday to make sure there's no other significant damage. For that reason, Baker won't be able to travel with the team to Boston, so he'll miss at least one game. Baker's next shot to play will be Friday against the Bucks and considering he's played less than 10 minutes in two of the last three games, his absence shouldn't have a drastic impact on the regular rotation.

January 30, 2018 08:20 PM
Knicks' Ron Baker: Out for remainder of game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker has been ruled out for the remainder of Tuesday's game against the Nets with a right shoulder injury.

Baker has averaged slightly under nine minutes per contest over the past six games, so he hasn't played a major role in the rotation as of late. The Knicks are on the first game of a back-to-back set, which will leave Baker questionable for Wednesday's game at Boston.

Knicks' Ron Baker: Coming off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker will come off the bench for Friday's contest against the Suns while Tim Hardaway Jr. (rest) re-joins the starting lineup, Craig Grialou of reports.

Baker was inserted into the starting lineup Thursday as Hardaway was given the night off for rest. On the year, Baker is averaging 2.6 points and 1.7 assists across 14.1 minutes per game.

January 25, 2018 08:28 PM
Knicks' Ron Baker: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker will start in Thursday's matchup with the Nuggets in place of Tim Hardaway, Harrison Wind of reports.

With Hardaway out, Baker will start in his place and will likely see more than the 14.2 minutes he's averaging this season. Hardaway is only resting, so it's likely he will rejoin the starting lineup on Friday and bumping Baker back to a reserve role.

January 3, 2018 06:00 PM
Knicks' Ron Baker: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (orbital) will play during Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Ian Begley of reports.

Baker will be playing in a protective mask after suffering a fractured orbital during Saturday's game against the Pelicans. In his previous five appearances before that game, he was averaging 1.6 points and 1.8 assists across 14.8 minutes per contest.
