Dotson underwent surgery Wednesday to address a torn labrum on his right shoulder, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Dotson may have suffered the injury when he missed a few games in mid-December. He played a significant role for the Knicks down the stretch, starting the final 25 games of the season and averaging 13.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 32.5 minutes. Chances are, the Knicks will try to find a way to reduce his role next season, so it seems unlikely he'll be fantasy relevant.
Dotson generated 18 points (6-8 FG, 6-7 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 41 minutes Monday in the Knicks' 113-105 win over the Bulls.
Dotson has settled in as a deadly three-point specialist for New York since the All-Star break, converting on 38.6 percent of his attempts from distance for 2.7 triples per game. He shouldn't be expected to turn in rebound and assist totals on this level over the Knicks' final five games, but with his playing time seemingly secure, Dotson profiles as a strong scoring and three-point streamer.
Dotson totaled 18 points (7-16 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 44 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Clippers on Sunday.
Dotson had a solid game in Sunday's loss, continuing to stay involved in the offense. He's playing heavy minutes for the Knicks down the stretch and should be a good bet for healthy scoring totals as the season comes to a close.
Dotson scored 25 points (10-20 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding six rebounds and an assist in 41 minutes during Sunday's 124-123 win over the Lakers.
The second-year guard is hot right now, scoring at least 20 points in three of the last four games while averaging 22.5 points, 5.0 boards, 3.5 three-pointers, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals over that stretch. Dotson's starting role and ability to fill up the basket from long range makes him worth considering for fantasy GMs in need of last-minute reinforcements in the backcourt.
Dotson tallied 21 points (9-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 35 minutes during Friday's 109-83 loss to San Antonio.
Dotson led the Knicks with 21 points Friday, hitting 9-of-19 from the field, including three triples. Dotson has been arguably the most consistent Knicks player over the past two weeks, scoring in double-digits in six of his last seven games. Playing time is the key for any of the Knicks players and Dotson appears to have earned a sizeable role. He is primarily a point and three-point streamer but can contribute in both rebounds and assists.
Dotson finished with 18 points (6-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 36 minutes in Tuesday's 103-98 loss to the Pacers.
Dotson continues to showcase his scoring ability with Knicks and has now found himself playing consistently over 30 minutes each night. His four threes on Tuesday night provided just a glimpse of what he can do on the offensive end, but he also contributes a fair amount on the boards for a guard.
Dotson finished with 26 points (10-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, six assists, and two steals in 41 minutes during Sunday's 103-92 loss to the Timberwolves.
Dotson led all scorers with 26 points Sunday, his highest points total in almost three weeks. He has now played at least 30 minutes in four straight games and appears to have carved out a sizeable role in the rotation. Dotson has the ability to score in bunches and can provide both assists and rebounds from time-to-time. If you need points with a smattering of other stats, Dotson could be worth considering in competitive formats.
Dotson produced 27 points (9-17 FG, 8-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's 130-118 victory over the Spurs.
Dotson stayed hot Sunday, coming away with a career-high eight three-pointers in the Knicks victory over the Spurs. He has now scored in double-digits in four straight games, playing at least 30 minutes in three of those. The Knicks rotations are highly unpredictable meaning Dotson could drop off as soon as his shot begins to cool down. For right now, however, he is worth a look as a points and three's streamer in standard formats.
Dotson totaled 20 points (7-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists and a block over 34 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Timberwolves on Friday.
Dotson paced the Knicks in scoring, tying with Alonzo Trier for the team lead. Although he's found success scoring in his most recent three games (16.3 points per game), Dotson continues to be inefficient with his shot averaging only 37.5 percent shooting from the field on the season. He has the capability to pop off for large scoring hauls, but Dotson's modest output across most categories makes him better suited for deep leagues.
Dotson produced 13 points (4-11 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 21 minutes Thursday in the Knicks' 106-91 win over the Hawks.
With Mario Hezonja (leg) sidelined, Dotson moved back into a starting role at the wing in what marked his fourth turn with the top unit in five games. The appointment didn't come with an uptick in playing time, but Dotson was still able to fill out the box score adequately. As a player who's production is highly dependent on outside shooting, Dotson's numbers will likely be highly variable from game to game, so he'll remain mostly a deep-league consideration until he shows more stability with his fantasy profile.
Dotson will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Dotson will be replaced by Noah Vonleh after a three-game stint in the starting five. The second-year pro guard is averaging 9.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.4 threes in 24.7 minutes per game this season.
Dotson registered 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes Friday against Detroit.
Dotson had been held to just nine total points over his previous two matchups heading into Friday's clash, but he responded well from a pair of poor showings, knocking down 50.0 percent of his field goals. Despite taking a 120-103 loss on the night, Friday marked the second time in four games that Dotson has finished with 10 or more points, and he's also contributed on the boards over that span. After the Knicks traded away Tim Hardaway and bought out Wesley Matthews, it appears Dotson will remain in the starting lineup at shooting guard going forward.
Dotson will start at shooting guard in Friday's game against the Pistons and is in line to start for the rest of the season, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
The Knicks have not committed to anything regarding the starting lineup for the rest of the year, but given that Wesley Matthews is no longer with the team, it looks like it is Dotson's spot to lose. Given that the Knicks are now also without Tim Hardaway, Dotson should have the opportunity to take on a heavier minutes load moving forward.
Dotson contributed four points (1-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three assists, three rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes Tuesday in the Knicks' 105-92 loss to the Pistons.
Despite moving back to the bench after a two-game run as starter, Dotson received the exact same minutes total as he had in the Knicks' previous contest. The rebuilding club would presumably like to move some veterans ahead of Thursday's trade deadline, with the recently acquired Wesley Matthews included among that group. If Matthews is moved or bought out of his contract at some point and no other impact wings are added to the roster, Dotson could get a look in a more expanded role.
Dotson will come off the bench Tuesday against the Pistons, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.
Dotson has started the past two games for the Knicks, totaling 27 points, nine rebounds and two assists in 58 minutes. However, coach David FIzdale will opt to start the veteran Wesley Matthews on Tuesday, which is a trend that may continue for the foreseeable future.
Dotson scored a season-high 22 points (9-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt) while adding six rebounds in 38 minutes during Friday's 113-99 loss to the Celtics.
Forced into the starting lineup following the trade of Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee to Dallas, Dotson was one of only two Knicks to score more than 10 points on the night. Once Dennis Smith Jr. and Wesley Matthews and integrated into the team's backcourt rotation, Dotson's minutes and production should return to their usual levels.
Dotson is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Boston, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
A day after the Knicks sent a good chunk of their team to Dallas, Dotson will enter the starting lineup. His last start dates back to Jan. 13 against Philadelphia, when he finished with eight points, four rebounds and five assists in 36 minutes. Dotson could be in for a heavy workload with the Knicks playing short-handed.
Dotson supplied 14 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-5 FT), four assists, two steals, one rebound, and one block in 26 minutes during Sunday's 106-97 loss to the Heat.
Dotson's role has remained steady all season. With that being said, his scoring average has dipped with each passing month, and he's best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
Dotson (calf) will start at shooting guard in Sunday's tilt against Philadelphia, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Dotson was probable entering Sunday's game and is getting the starting nod over Tim Hardaway (hamstring), who'll come off the bench. Look for Dotson to see a bit more than his 25 minute average while in the starting lineup.
Dotson is probable for Sunday's matchup against the 76ers due to a left calf injury, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
Dotson emerged from Friday's game against the Pacers with a calf injury, though he still managed to drop 15 points, six rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes. It would be unexpected if he misses Sunday's tilt.
