Quickley had 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) and two assists in 15 minutes of action Monday against the Magic.
Quickley did much of his damage early in the game and was able to get to his spots and convert a few difficult floaters in the lane. Elfrid Payton (33 minutes) got the bulk of the workload at point guard, and Quickley's 15 minutes were his fewest in any game since Jan. 10, when he played 13 minutes off the bench against Denver. Nonetheless, the rookie was still able to reach double figures in scoring for the fourth consecutive contest.
Quickley finished with 17 points (7-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight assists, one steal and one block across 21 minutes Sunday in the Knicks' 105-75 win over the Celtics.
Though he remains stuck in a bench role behind Elfrid Payton, Quickley has made a case for a larger role with his play over the past three games. During that stretch, the rookie is averaging 19.7 points, 5.0 assists, 2.7 triples, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 23.7 minutes. Expect some level of regression, however; he's shooting an unsustainable 52.3 percent from the field and 47.1 percent from three-point range over those three games, and the Knicks backcourt will become more crowded when Alec Burks (ankle) likely returns at some point during the upcoming week.
Quickley recorded 23 points (9-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes during Friday's 106-103 loss to the Cavaliers.
Just two days after setting a career-high 19 points, the rookie topped that with a career-high 23 points Friday. Quickley's five rebounds and four assists also represented career marks. We saw flashes from the guard in preseason, so it's not a shock that he's found his way into a consistent role, averaging 26.3 minutes across the past three games. Quickley makes for an interesting waiver wire option in deeper fantasy leagues, but it's tough to tell if he'll be viable yet in standard formats. At the very least, he's worth putting on a watchlist.
Quickley dropped a career-high 19 points (7-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal over 22 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 116-109 loss to the Nets.
This breakout game was a welcome sight, as he'd only scored 10 points on 2-of-24 shooting over his last four contests. Quickley played the second-most minutes off the Knicks' bench Wednesday -- trailing only Kevin Knox, who had a good game himself.
Quickley played 29 minutes and submitted three points (1-10 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and three assists Monday in the Knicks' 109-88 loss to the Hornets.
The blowout nature of the game along with three guards (Reggie Bullock, Alec Burks and Frank Ntilikina) sitting out with injuries opened up some extra run for Quickley, but he was unable to capitalize. Though he looked like a candidate to eat into Elfrid Payton's playing time after he put up 16 points in 19 minutes off the bench in a Jan. 4 win over the Hawks, Quickley's horrid shooting in the games that followed have dimmed his outlook. In his last four outings, the rookie has converted on only two of his 24 shot attempts (8.3 percent). He could find himself out of the rotation once the Knicks get healthier in the backcourt.
Quickley put up 16 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 19 minutes off the bench Monday in the Knicks' 113-108 win over the Hawks.
After checking into the contest with 3:51 remaining in the third quarter, Quickley played 15 consecutive minutes while helping the Knicks claw back from an 11-point deficit before heading back to the bench with 42 seconds remaining. The Knicks' decision to play Quickley over veteran Elfrid Payton for much of that stretch speaks to the goodwill the 21-year-old has already established with head coach Tom Thibodeau, who has historically been reluctant to trust rookies with major roles. Thibodeau didn't suggest after the game that Quickley's strong outing would earn him a major uptick in minutes moving forward, but the No. 25 overall pick is at least worth keeping on a watchlist, especially if the 4-3 Knicks' season starts to go sideways.
Quickley (hip) finished with nine points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and one rebound across 15 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Knicks' 106-102 win over the Pacers.
Suiting up for the first time after missing four straight games due to a left hip pointer, Quickley was hot from the field in his first shift off the bench Saturday, but his production slowed thereafter. Meanwhile, starting point guard Elfrid Payton turned in a stellar line (19 points, eight rebounds and five assists in 34 minutes), which should give him some extra job security as he looks to hold off the first-round pick for playing time. Quickley turned some heads with his play in the preseason, but a 15-minute role may be the norm for him unless Payton's productivity takes a turn for the worse.
Quickley (hip) is active for Saturday's game against the Pacers.

Quickley was doubtful heading into Sunday's contest, but he won't be able to suit up against the Bucks. However, he's currently considered day-to-day, and coach Tom Thibodeau sounded optimistic that the guard could return soon. Quickley's next chance to play will be Tuesday against the Cavaliers.
Coach Tom Thibodeau said Quickley (hip) is considered day-to-day, but the rookie first-round pick is "most likely out" Sunday against the Bucks, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.
The 21-year-old sustained a hip pointer during Wednesday's season opener and was unable to play Saturday, and he's also expected to sit out Sunday's contest. Dennis Smith should see increased work as the backup point guard if Quickley is ultimately ruled out.
Quickley (hip) is out Saturday against the 76ers, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

Quickley (hip) is day-to-day ahead of Saturday's contest against the 76ers, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

Quickley won't return to Wednesday's game against the Pacers after suffering a hip pointer.
The 21-year-old played 12 minutes during the first half before exiting with the injury, and he had five points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal. It's unclear if the injury will affect Quickley's availability for Saturday's matchup with Philadelphia.
Quickley registered 22 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five assists and five steals across 29 minutes in Friday's 119-83 preseason win over the Cavaliers.
Quickley got the start in the preseason finale and didn't disappoint, as he paced the Knicks offensively while also leaving his mark both as a facilitator and as a tenacious defender. Quickley has a crowded path towards playing time at point guard, but this performance could result in him finding a role on the bench ahead of the team's regular-season debut Wednesday at Indiana.
