Omari Spellman: Productive against Westchester
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman compiled 17 points (5-6 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block over 22 minutes in Friday's 130-124 loss to Westchester.

Spellman had inconsistent results over much of the year, but he scored in double figures during each of the final two games of the regular season. He's now averaging 7.9 points and 5.0 rebounds over 20.8 minutes per contest heading into the playoffs.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman totaled four points (1-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal over 24 minutes in Tuesday's 106-103 win over the Mad Ants.

Spellman was incredibly inefficient and shot just 10 percent from the floor Tuesday, but he led the BayHawks on the boards during the narrow victory over Fort Wayne. He's been in the starting lineup for five of the first nine games of the season, averaging 8.1 points and 5.8 rebounds over 22.7 minutes per contest during that time.

Omari Spellman: Team leader on boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman posted eight points (4-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds and three steals over 29 minutes in Wednesday's 127-87 win over the G League Ignite.

Spellman joined the starting five for the first time this season against the Ignite, but he was the only starter for the BayHawks to not score in double figures Wednesday. However, he put up a team-high 10 rebounds in the blowout win. He's now averaging 8.8 points and 4.8 rebounds over 22.1 minutes per game to begin the year, although it's not yet clear whether his starting role will continue.

Omari Spellman: Scores 15 against Austin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman logged 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, two blocks and one assist over 26 minutes in Saturday's 115-108 loss to the Austin Spurs.

Spellman has carved out a consistent role off the bench early in the G League season, and he was one of the team's top contributors in Saturday's loss. The 23-year-old should continue to see considerable usage for the BayHawks this year, even if he remains in a bench role.

Omari Spellman: Productive in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman recorded 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt), six rebounds and three assists over 21 minutes in Friday's 138-126 win over Raptors 905.

Spellman has come off the bench in each of the first two games of the G League season, but he's been relatively productive for the BayHawks. During that time, he's averaging 10.5 points and 4.0 assists over 21.3 minutes per game.

Omari Spellman: Will play in G League bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman will play in the G League bubble with the Erie Bayhawks, freelance journalist Adam Zagoria reports.

Spellman was let go by the Knicks earlier in the year to make room for Taj Gibson. The Pelicans' organization has some interest in Spellman, since it is the BayHawks' parent club.

Knicks' Omari Spellman: Expected to be waived
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman is expected to be waived, with the Knicks planning to sign veteran Taj Gibson, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

Nothing is set in stone yet, but Spellman will likely be cut before seeing action for the Knicks this season. Even if he lands with another team, he's unlikely to see a workload that would lead to fantasy-relevant production.

Spellman has yet to play this year due to a sore right knee, but it looks like he has a good chance to suit for tomorrow's contest. The 23-year-old power forward likely isn't looking at much of a role right away in his return.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pacers.

Knicks' Omari Spellman: Ruled out with sore knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman (knee) will not play in Saturday's game against the 76ers, Ian Begley of SNY reports.

A sore right knee will keep the Villanova product out of a second straight game to begin the season. The Knicks also play Sunday against Milwaukee, so Spellman will likely miss that contest as well.

Knicks' Omari Spellman: Ruled out for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman has been ruled out for Wednesday's season opener versus the Pacers due to a sore right knee.

Spellman isn't expected to be a regular part of head coach Tom Thibodeau's rotation to begin the season, so his absence Wednesday likely won't affect how the minutes are distributed among the Knicks' big men.

Knicks' Omari Spellman: Headed to New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman was traded from the Timberwolves to the Knicks on Sunday in exchange for Ed Davis, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Spellman and teammate Jacob Evans will head to the Knicks as part of the deal. The 2018 first-rounder was part of Minnesota's G League club after being dealt in February, but he averaged 7.6 points and 4.5 rebounds over 18.1 minutes per game with the Warriors last season.

Timberwolves' Omari Spellman: Fills stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spellman registered 19 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 128-126 win over the Vipers.

Spellman has looked impressive for the Wolves and was doing enough to be considered for a promotion to the Timberwolves roster. However, it's unclear when he and the rest of the Wolves will be able to take the floor again, however, as the G League has suspended its season indefinitely amid coronavirus concerns.

Spellman keeps showing he's just too good for the G League level, and it seems it will only be a matter of time before he can carve a regular role in the Timberwolves' rotation. Spellman has averaged 19.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 31.1 minutes per game in six outings with Iowa.
