Knicks' RJ Barrett: Bounces back with 24 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett tallied 24 points (8-19 FG, 3-3 FT, 5-9 3Pt), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal in 41 minutes during Thursday's 102-98 win over the Spurs.

Barrett sank five of his nine three-point attempts Thursday against the Spurs, bouncing back from his 0-for-7 performance from deep against the Lakers on Tuesday. The lefty is shooting 44.2 percent over his last six games, but he is only shooting 33.3 percent from inside arc during that stretch, including 3-for-10 Thursday. Despite the inconsistent shooting, Barrett grabbed nine rebounds (most since April 24) and dished out five assists (most since May 2).

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Woeful shooting performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett tallied eight points (2-13 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 38 minutes in Tuesday's overtime loss against the Lakers.

Barrett has failed to reach the 20-point mark in four of his last five games, with poor shooting the culprit, as he's made just 33.3 percent of his field-goal attempts. Barrett has shot 43.2 percent from the field since the beginning of April, however, so he's due for a bounce-back performance sooner than later.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Continues to struggle shooting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett registered 18 points (7-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block across 45 minutes during Sunday's 106-100 win over the Clippers.

May has not been kind to Barrett as he's shooting 38.3 percent from the floor, though he's had much better luck from beyond the arc, hitting 50.0 percent of his threes. Barrett has still managed to score 15 points or more in four of his five contests this month while grabbing an average of 6.4 boards and dishing out 3.2 assists over that span. Barrett has seen his production increase across the board in his second season, sans steals.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Drops 23 with eight boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett had 23 points (8-22 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and three assists in Friday's loss to Phoenix.

It wasn't the most efficient night for Barrett, but he's becoming increasingly comfortable from beyond the arc, where he's shooting 45.5 percent on 7.0 attempts per game over his last 11 starts. That's an incredibly encouraging sign for the second-year guard, who shot just 32.0 percent from deep a season ago. Barrett's free-throw percentage is also up to 74.5 percent, compared to his rookie-year figure of 61.4 percent.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Puts up 21 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett recorded 21 points (7-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and two steals across 40 minutes in Sunday's win over the Rockets.

Barrett has surpassed the 20-point mark in three of his last four games and has also scored more than 15 points in each of his eight contests, so his role as the Knicks' second-best scoring threat behind Julius Randle is quite safe. He's doing more than just putting up points on the board, though, as he's also averaging 6.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game during that aforementioned eight-game span.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 22 in 42 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett racked up 22 points (9-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in Wednesday's win over the Bulls.

Barrett and Julius Randle (34 points) led the way for the Knicks, combining for 56 points, 14 rebounds, nine assists and two blocks in the 113-94 victory. The electric guard has now scored at least 20 points in four of the last seven games, and he's drained 17 of his last 40 attempts from three over the last five games.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Posts fifth double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett recorded 25 points (8-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 12 rebounds and four assists in 38 minutes during Saturday's win over the Raptors.

The 20-year-old been on a roll over his last five games, averaging 21.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.5 three-pointers while shooting 45.2 percent from the field in that span. Barrett is shooting a much improved 44.6 percent from this field this season compared to just 40.2 percent in his rookie year. The second-year guard will look to help the Knicks win their 10th game in a row on Monday against the Suns.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Hits six triples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett registered 24 points (8-17 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and one block in 39 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Hornets.

The 20-year-old has been on a roll since Wednesday's six-point dud, averaging 22.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.7 three-pointers over his last three games. Barrett now has scored 20-plus points in 27 out of 59 games this season. The second-year guard will look to keep it going Wednesday at home against the Hawks.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 18 with six turnovers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett posted 18 points (7-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and six turnovers in Sunday's overtime win over the Pelicans.

Barrett provided a nice scoring punch for the Knicks before fouling out in 36 minutes, but he didn't add much in terms of counting stats. Barrett snapped a five-game streak of posting at least one steal, and his six turnovers were his most in any game this season. Prior to Sunday, Barrett had committed just four total turnovers over his last five games.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Posts 24 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett totaled 24 points (9-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds and two assists across 46 minutes in a 117-109 victory over the Mavericks on Friday.

Julius Randle stole the show with his 44-point effort, but Barrett played an effective sidekick to lead New York to its 30th win of the campaign. The 20-year-old logged a season-high 46 minutes and hit half of his field-goal attempts after going just 4-for-21 over his previous two games. Barrett has improved in nearly every statistical category in his second season, posting per-game averages of 17.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.4 three-pointers.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Cools off in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett registered seven points (2-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 33 minutes during Monday's win over the Lakers.

The 20-year-old's seven-point performance was his lowest scoring output since Feb. 23. Before Monday's game, Barrett was averaging 20.8 points, 3.2 three-pointers, 3.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.0 steals over his past five games. He'll look to get back on track Wednesday on the road against the Pelicans.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 19 points against Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett mustered 19 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five assists, two steals and a rebound across 33 minutes in Sunday's win over the Raptors.

Barrett delivered a strong shooting performance and looked sharp from three-point range once again. The former Duke standout has drained two or more threes in four games in a row and has hit 15 of his last 22 shots from beyond the arc. He has also registered multiple threes in six of his last seven contests.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Pours 20 points over Grizzlies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett supplied 20 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Friday's overtime win over the Grizzlies.

Barrett has been on quite a scoring run of late, reaching the 20-point mark in three straight games and accomplishing that feat in seven of his last 10 contests. The second-year guard out of Duke has taken a massive leap this season and has established himself as the Knicks' second-best offensive threat behind Julius Randle -- he's averaging 19.0 points per game while shooting 45 percent from the field and 48 percent from three-point range during that aforementioned 10-game stretch.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores team-high 29 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett delivered 29 points (10-14 FG, 6-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 101-99 loss to the Celtics.

Barrett carried the Knicks offensively in this game and delivered one of his best shooting performances of the season. The second-year man has now scored at least 20 points in three of his last five games, and he's hit multiple threes in four of those five contests. He contributes with rebounds on a regular basis and can chip in with assists from time to time as well, but Barrett's main source of value comes from what he can do scoring the rock.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Enjoys strong shooting night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett scored 22 points (7-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with four rebounds across 33 minutes in Monday's loss to the Nets.

Barrett topped 20 points for the second time in his last five games on the strength of four threes and otherwise efficient shooting. The rest of his line was fairly empty, as he contributed no defensive stats or assists for the second time in his last three contests. Even so, Barrett should continue to see a heavy workload in terms of both minutes and usage down the stretch.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle) will play Saturday against the Pistons.

As expected, Barrett will see the court despite an ankle injury. Over the past five games, he's averaged 16.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 36.8 minutes.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: LIkely to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

Barrett played through a sprained right ankle in Friday's game against the Mavericks, and there was no word of any setback. Judging by his probable designation, he is seemingly on track to suit up again Saturday, but final confirmation on his status will depend on how he is feeling closer tip-off.

Barrett (ankle) will play Friday against the Mavericks.

Despite a sprained right ankle, Barrett will see the court. He hasn't missed a game this season. Since the start of March, he's averaged 20.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 36.4 minutes.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Questionable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett is questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks due to a right ankle sprain.

Barrett recorded 23 points across 41 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Minnesota, but he apparently sustained an ankle injury during the game. If he's held out Friday, Alec Burks and Kevin Knox could see increased run for the Knicks.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Drains three treys Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett delivered 23 points (8-17 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block across 41 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Timberwolves.

While he's never been much of a shooting threat from deep, it's worth noting that Barrett's made two or more treys in three of his last four contests. Barrett had a game to forget the last time out, scoring eight points while shooting 4-for-12 from the field, but he's still scored at least 20 points in four of his last five outings.
