Dotson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Thunder while Kevin Knox draws the start, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.
With rookie Kevin Knox returning from his sprained ankle, Dotson will resume his expected bench role. Dotson has played well, however, and still may be able to reach close to the 29.0 minutes per game he's seen this year. In that time, he's averaged 11.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists on 44.4 percent from the field and 33.9 percent from deep.
Dotson tallied 18 points (7-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and two assists in 41 minutes during Monday's 116-115 loss to Chicago.
Dotson continues to play well for the Knicks, finishing with 18 points in Monday's double-overtime loss. He is by no means a standard league player but has started to make some noise if you are in a deeper format.
Dotson posted 11 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes in Sunday's 108-95 loss to the Wizards.
Dotson has now recorded over 30 minutes in the last three games, as his role with the team continues to expand after not playing the first two games of the year. He has averaged 11 points over his last five games with not much variation, so more of the same should be expected moving forward, as the minutes have been given to him to produce.
Dotson will draw the start Friday against the Warriors, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Coach David Fizdale is switching things up against the Warriors. Dotson has played well this season, averaging 14.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.3 assists in 29.3 minutes.
Dotson had struggled with his shot prior to Friday's game, as he'd drained just 26.0 percent of his 31 attempts over the prior four contests of summer league play. The 2017 second-round pick's 75.0 percent success rate from the field was easily his best in Las Vegas, and the strong performance certainly gives him impressive momentum heading into training camp.
