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.
Dotson dialed up 15 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, and four assists in 28 minutes during Friday's 121-106 loss to the Pacers.
Dotson matched his career high in assists while reaching double figures in scoring for the 19th time through 33 appearances this season. The 24-year-old sophomore has improved his per-game numbers in every statistical category, more than doubling his scoring average. With that being said, Dotson is still best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
After missing the previous three games, Dotson immediately re-entered the rotation and reached double digits in the scoring column for the seventh time in his last nine appearances. The second-year swingman should hold a stable role off the bench moving forward now that his health isn't a concern, but Dotson's fantasy production almost entirely hinges on his ability to score. On off shooting nights, Dotson doesn't bring much else to the table, as his season averages of 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.9 steals and 0.2 blocks illustrate.
Dotson (shoulder) will be available to play Wednesday against the 76ers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
It's unexpected positive news for the swingman, who was viewed as doubtful for the contest as of Tuesday. Dotson, who has missed the last three games with a bruised shoulder, apparently allayed any concerns the Knicks might have had about his health during the team's morning shootaround. Though he'll dress Wednesday, Dotson may not be pressed into a key rotation role right away with the Knicks set to have their full complement of wings available with the exception of Allonzo Trier (hamstring).
