Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 16, swipes four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett collected 16 points (5-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), six rebounds, four steals and one assist in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 122-115 loss to the Wizards.

Barrett recorded at least one steal for the fifth straight game to begin the month of March. Moreover, he has scored in double figures in seven straight matchups. Barrett's efficiency leaves plenty to be desired, but he's likely to provide quality counting stats down the stretch this season.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Supplies 12 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett produced 12 points (5-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists and a steal across 26 minutes in Sunday's 96-84 win over Detroit.

Although Barrett has been less consistent since his nine-game absence, he's still putting together respectable stat lines. He's averaging 14.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists over the past 13 games, which is about what he was producing before being sidelined. The Duke product is one of the best players out of the 2019 draft class, but he needs to improve on his 39.3 field-goal percentage to take his game to the next level.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Goes for 17 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett had 17 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3PT, 6-6 FT), four rebounds and three assists in Friday's loss to the Thunder.

Barrett struggled from the field and committed four turnovers, but he's still averaging 18.4 points on 52.3 percent shooting over his last five games. The rookie has hit his last nine free throw attempts, which has helped pull his season-long conversation rate up to 60.8 percent.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Ties season-high scoring output
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett went for 27 points (10-18 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-7 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 125-123 win over the Rockets.

This was Barrett's best game since returning from a nine-game absence between January and February, as he tied his season-high mark for points while looking very efficient from the field. The Duke product has also scored in double digits in six of his last seven games, averaging 17.1 points on 45.2 percent shooting during that stretch.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 15 in loss to 76ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett contributed 15 points (6-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and five assists in 35 minutes during Thursday's loss to the 76ers.

While Barrett is putting up decent counting stats of 13.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 0.9 steals per game on the season, his fantasy rank is still miles away from standard-league territory because of his poor shooting (38.9 percent from the field, and 60.4 percent from the line) and turnovers. The 19-year old is seeing a 25.2 usage rate this season, and could potentially have the ball in his hands even more down the stretch. Hopefully head coach Mike Miller allows his rookie to show off his playmaking skills a bit more.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Scores 21 despite shooting woes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett notched 21 points (8-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-7 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 34 minutes during Monday's 123-112 loss at Houston.

Barrett has been on the rise of late and has topped himself -- from a scoring point of view -- in each of his last five games while topping the 15-point plateau in each of his last three outings. The rookie out of Duke missed nine games between January and early February, but he is averaging 12.4 points in the five games he's played as a starter since then. He is expected to remain in that role moving forward.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Goes for 17 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett registered 17 points (8-19 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Friday's 106-98 loss against the Pacers.

Barrett missed nine games between January and February and moved back to the starting lineup four contests ago, but he is averaging just 10.3 points per game -- while shooting 32.7 percent from the field -- in those four starts. That said, Barrett is coming off 16-point and 17-point performances against the Wizards and the Pacers, so he seems to be on the rise of late.

February 15, 2020 12:00 AM
Knicks' RJ Barrett: Drops game-high 27 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett tallied 27 points (11-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, five assists and three steals in 24 minutes during Friday's Team World loss to Team USA in the Rising Stars Challenge.

Barrett may have put up his best line of the season in the loss, demonstrating where he currently sits in terms of overall fantasy value. He is currently the 334th ranked player in nine-category formats despite playing more than 30 minutes a night. He offers very little outside of scoring and his percentages are a real concern. The Knicks have absolutely nothing to play for and so it makes sense that Barrett should continue to see big minutes moving forward. He is fine to have on your roster if you can deal with the inefficiencies and simply need a boost in points.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Needs 16 shots for 16 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett posted 16 points (5-16 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and five rebounds across 29 minutes Wednesday in the Knicks' 114-96 loss to the Wizards.

This was the best of Barrett's four outings since he returned to action earlier this month following a nine-game absence due to a sprained ankle, but that's mostly a testament to how poorly he performed in the prior three contests. A 61.1 percent free-throw shooter for the season, Barrett needed an uncharacteristically strong showing from the line to make up for his typically inefficient shooting from the field. The rookie doesn't look like a must-roster player in most 12-team leagues at this time, though he's far more valuable in points formats, where his wretched percentages won't hurt him.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Returns to starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett will start Saturday's game against the Pistons.

In his second game back from injury, Barrett returns to the starting five. Since the new year, he's averaged 15.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 28.8 minutes.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Good chance to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett has a good chance at starting Saturday's game against Detroit, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Barrett looks set to take on his usual starting role after scoring 12 points in 18 minutes in his return from a nine-game absence due to an ankle injury. He'll presumably take over for Frank Ntilikina, with Reggie Bullock likely staying on as the first-unit small forward.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Impresses in return from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle) notched 12 points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-9 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 18 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 105-103 win over the Magic.

The Duke product returned after a nine-game absence and while he came off the bench here, he shouldn't waste time to recover his starting role alongside Elfrid Payton in the backcourt. He averaged 15.6 points per game in his last five starts prior to the injury.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Officially available
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle) will be available for Thursday's game against Orlando.

As expected, the rookie will make his return to the floor for the first time in several weeks, but he'll come off the bench and could face a minutes limitation.

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

Barrett (ankle) is expected to play Thursday against the Magic, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

Barrett hasn't played since mid-January due to a sprained right ankle, but the plan is for him to get some minutes Thursday after successfully returning to practice earlier in the week. He'll come off the bench, though it's not yet known whether Barrett will face a minutes restriction.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle), who is questionable for Thursday's game against the Magic, was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Barrett hasn't played since mid-January -- a span of nine games -- due to a sprained right ankle, but it sounds like he could return Thursday against Orlando. The Knicks will likely wait and see how the rookie feels during morning shootaround before updating his status.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Could be available Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle), who is listed as out for Monday's game against the Cavaliers, said that he "hopes" to resuming practicing Tuesday before possibly playing Thursday against the Magic, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Barrett's high right ankle sprain will sideline him for a ninth straight game Monday, but the rookie is optimistic he'll move past the injury soon so he can head into All-Star weekend healthy and ready to participate in the annual NBA Rising Stars exhibition. The injury came at a tough time for Barrett, who had just been starting to show improved efficiency with his shooting. Over his final six games before getting hurt, Barrett converted 44.3 percent of his field goals, 42.9 percent of his three-point attempts and 75.6 percent of his free-throw tries, all of which were well ahead of his season-long shooting splits (39.3, 32.9 and 60.3 percent, respectively).

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle) is out for Monday's contest against Cleveland.

The rookie hasn't seen the court since suffering the ankle injury during the loss against the Suns on Jan. 16, a span of what is now nine contests. Although the former Duke product is officially listed as out for Monday's matchup, the Knicks will likely provide further clarification sometime soon as to when Barrett is expected back on the floor.

Knicks' RJ Barrett: Out through end of January
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle) has transitioned from crutches to a walking boot and will be re-evaluated in one week.

While Barrett's making progress in his return from a severe right ankle sprain, he'll be held out for at least another week. If he's cleared during his re-evaluation, Barrett will need to go through a series of tests in practice prior to being allowed to return to game action. Look for the team to provide a more defined timeline once Barret's evaluated again.

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.

January 17, 2020 01:32 PM
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.
