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.

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

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.

April 1, 2021 04:40 PM
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.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Off night in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett finished with eight points (4-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds and four assists in Monday's loss to the Heat.

Barrett had been playing well over the last several games, but this was one to forget for the second-year guard. Barrett missed all four of his three-point attempts and posted meager complementary numberswhile failing to record a steal or block for the just the second time in his last nine appearances.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Well-rounded line in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett submitted 21 points (8-22 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal across 38 minutes in Saturday's 102-96 win over the Bucks.

Barrett co-led the Knicks in scoring alongside Alec Burks, but he also paced the team in assists while ending as the fourth-best rebounder. Barrett has been struggling from the field in recent weeks and needed 22 shots to deliver 21 points in this one, but that won't matter much if he continues to scoring at a strong clip while also posting decent numbers in other categories. He is doing enough to make up for his lack of accuracy from the field.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 24 on 22 shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett registered 24 points (7-22 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-11 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals in 41 minutes during Thursday's 106-102 win over the Wizards.

The 20-year-old only shot 32 percent from the field but provided fantasy managers with plenty of other goodies across the board to make up for it. Barrett matched season highs in assists and steals with five and three, respectively. He's looking at 35-40 minutes a game the rest of the way with the Knicks sitting as the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference.

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

Barrett had 21 points (8-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two blocks across 39 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Wizards.

Barrett was coming off three straight games where he couldn't reach the 20-point mark, but he bounced back here and posted his 19th game of the season with at least 20 points. The former Duke star has settled himself as the Knicks' second-best offensive threat behind Julius Randle, and he has scored in double digits in 12 games in a row, giving a decent scoring floor even if he doesn't really stand out in any other categories. He is averaging 21.1 points per game during that 12-game span.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Goes for 19-8-4 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett had 19 points (9-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal across 39 minutes in Sunday's 101-100 overtime loss to the 76ers.

Barrett scored under 20 points for the third straight game and once again struggled from beyond the arc. On the whole, though, the second-year guard has demonstrated tangible improvement as a scorer this season. While he still has his off nights, Barrett is up to 17.2 points per game with 45.3-34.8-73.0 percent shooting splits. As a rookie, Barrett shot just 40.2 percent from the field and 61.4 percent at the line.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Grabs eight boards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett scored 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-7 FT) with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in a 99-96 loss to the 76ers on Tuesday.

Barrett was able to finish with a solid line in a game that the Knicks got outscored 26-14 in the fourth quarter. Coming off a game where he made all 10 of his free throws, Barrett struggled from the line Tuesday, making only 42.9 percent of his attempts. The guard's streak of four consecutive games of scoring at least 21 points also came to an end. Barrett will continue to provide fantasy managers with solid all-around stats due to volume and consistent playing time.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Drops 23 points Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett recorded 23 points (6-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 10-10 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block during Monday's loss to Brooklyn.

Coming off a career-high 32-point outing Saturday against the Thunder, Barrett stayed hot and dropped at least 20 points for a fourth straight matchup in Monday's defeat. Since posting just four points against the Warriors on Feb. 23, Barrett has stepped things up offensively and is averaging 21.3 points over his past eight games played.
