Knicks' RJ Barrett: Re-evaluation on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle) is expected to "be evaluated soon," Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Barrett has already missed over a week due to a right ankle sprain, though it sounds as though the Knicks may evaluate the rookie within the next few days. An updated timetable for his return should come following the evaluation.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Out at least a week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain Friday after X-rays came back negative and will be reevaluated in one week.

The rookie first-round pick sustained the injury during Thursday's loss to the Suns and originally attempted to remain in the game before being ruled out. Overall it's good news for Barrett, but he'll still end up missing at least the next three games. Damyean Dotson ended up playing 26 minutes in his absence Thursday and is likely in line for an increased role.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Won't return following injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett won't return to Thursday's game against the Suns after suffering a sprained right ankle.

Barrett stayed in the contest initially after tweaking his ankle, but after undergoing further tests in the locker room, the team has shut him down for the night. His status for Saturday's game against the 76ers is up in the air at this point.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Productive from distance in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett notched 22 points (6-15 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 128-102 loss to the Bucks.

The 40 percent mark from the field wasn't great, but Barrett's showing from the three-point and free-throw lines were encouraging in what's been a rough rookie season from an efficiency standpoint. Even if Barrett continues to show further improvement in the 39.5/60.6/32.6 percent shooting splits he's holding down for the season, he'll still be far more desirable in points leagues than categorical formats. He's averaging 19.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 three-pointers and 1.2 steals in his last six outings.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 23 to go with complete line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett chipped in 23 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-10 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Sunday's 124-121 win over the Heat.

Barrett was extremely efficient offensively, finishing with over twice as many points as field goal attempts while committing zero turnovers. He has scored at least 20 nine times through 39 appearances and continues to be a solid source of counting stats, albeit with subpar efficiency on most nights.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Just misses double-double Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett scored 16 points (5-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Friday's 123-111 loss to the Pelicans.

The rookie has scored in double digits in five straight games, his longest such streak so far, and Barrett fell one board shy of his third double-double. The 19-year-old remains an inconsistent contributor in other categories, but he's starting to become a reliable asset on offense for the Knicks despite the muddled and underpowered roster around him.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores an empty 19 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett compiled 19 points (9-19 FG, 0-2 3Pt. 1-2 FT) and five rebounds in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 117-87 loss to the Lakers.

Barrett led the Knicks with 19 points but failed to round out his performance with any peripheral numbers. He can be a nice source of points but when that is really the only positive in his game, he shouldn't be on the radar in 12-team formats.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 24 in efficient fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett contributed 24 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 9-11 FT), six rebounds, one steal and one block in 37 minutes during Sunday's 135-132 loss to the Clippers.

Barrett lived at the line and had himself an extremely efficient night as a scorer. He didn't tally a single assist, but it was a solid showing nonetheless, as the rookie has now scored at least 20 eight times through 35 appearances.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Counter-productive in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett ended with seven points (3-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and four rebounds in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 117-93 victory over Portland.

Barrett continues to be a source of frustration for many in fantasy basketball. He has a clear path to minutes but is yet to make the most of his situation. He is well outside the top-200 in standard formats, yet is rostered in almost every league. If you are in any sort of battle for a playoff spot, Barrett can be released back into the wild in all 12-team leagues.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Efficient night despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett had 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-4 3PT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Monday's 121-115 loss against the Wizards.

The rookie out of Duke has scored in single digits in three of his last six games, while making 40 percent of his field goals over that span. Considering Barrett has shown those issues from the field on a regular basis during his rookie year, fantasy owners should accept those inconsistencies since he is worth a roster spot in most formats due to his scoring ability.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Terrible performance Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett ended with two points (1-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), and two rebounds in 20 minutes during Friday's 129-114 loss to Miami.

Barrett was disgusting Friday, shooting 10 percent from the field and missing both of his free-throws. Despite playing 32 minutes per night and scoring 13.8 points, Barrett is just the 327th ranked player in nine-category leagues. The Knicks are trash and so he is going to get plenty of opportunities moving forward. With that being said, he is by no means a must-roster player unless you are punting percentages.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Drops career-high 27 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett posted a career-high 27 points (10-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT) to go with six boards, one assist and one steal across 29 minutes Tuesday in a 143-120 win over the Hawks.

After failing to reach double-digit points in five of his previous seven games, Barrett finally showed why some fantasy managers might have been reluctant to send him to the waiver wire. His shot hasn't been failing recently, as he's hit just 27.3 percent of his shots in those previous seven games, but he was scorching from the floor Tuesday. The 19-year-old's low percentages from the field and free-throw line make him tougher to hold on to in categorical leagues, but he'll be a must-roster player in points leagues so long as he continues to see heavy minutes.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Double-doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett posted 22 points (8-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 46 minutes during Wednesday's win over Golden State.

Barrett generated his second double-double of the season in a whopping 46 minutes of run during Wednesday's overtime win. The rookie has struggled of late, reaching double-figures just once in his past four games and making nine-of-39 shots over that span. While Barrett's flashed immense talent, his production is sporadic and his poor shooting percentages of 39.3 from the field, 32.1 percent from three and 54.6 percent from the line may be too much of a setback for him to hold value in most season-long formats.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: One board shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett collected 12 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Saturday's 104-103 loss to the Pacers.

Barrett paced the team in minutes while falling one board shy of a double-double. He continues to struggle from the field, beyond the arc and the charity stripe, but Barrett holds decent value in leagues that primarily value counting stats.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Quiet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett posted nine points (4-10 FT, 1-5 3Pt), five assists, three rebounds, three steals and a block in 22 minutes as the Knicks fell 129-92 to the Nuggets on Thursday.

This was the second consecutive game that Barrett has failed to reach double-digits in scoring as well as the second consecutive game that the Knicks have been pummeled. Through these two games, Barrett has only played a combined 42 minutes. The lack of minutes in blowouts is somewhat concerning since the Knicks may suffer more than their fair share, however they have no reason not to feed Barrett in the midst of their youth movement.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Struggles mightily in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett compiled two points (0-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one assist and one block over 20 minutes of play in the Knicks' 132-88 loss to the Bucks on Monday night.

Barrett's underwhelming performance marked what was certainly the worst outing of his young career. In addition to the rookie recording career lows in minutes played, points, rebounds and field-goal percentage, it was also the first time he failed to grab a single rebound or convert on any of his field-goal attempts. While the former Blue Devil's performance was disappointing, the Knicks' 4-17 start to the season bodes well for Barrett in regards to his playing and scoring opportunities looking forward.

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

Barrett managed 16 points (5-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, four assists and three steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 126-98 loss to the Raptors.

Barrett was back in the starting lineup Wednesday after missing the previous game due to an illness. He ended with solid production, however, he continues to destroy teams' field goal percentage. If you can deal with the inefficient shooting, Barrett makes for a solid enough fantasy asset despite sitting outside the top-300 for the season.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett will be back in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Raptors, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Barrett will make his return to the lineup after missing Sunday's game with an illness, and he'll be back at his usual starting spot in the backcourt. As a result, the Knicks will shift Kevin Knox back to the bench.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Available as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (illness) will play Wednesday against the Raptors, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Barrett was sidelined for the Knicks' previous game, but he's feeling better enough to play in his home country of Canada. Since the start of November, he's averaging 13.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals in 32.3 minutes.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Intends to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (illness) stated that he's playing Wednesday against Toronto, Barbara Barker of Newsday Sports reports.

Barrett was a late scratch from Sunday's matchup with Brooklyn due to illness, but the rookie expects to be back in action Wednesday. He's averaging 13.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists over his last 10 games.
