Knicks' Enes Kanter: Double-double in losing effort
Kanter scored 13 points (4-11 FG. 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 28 minutes during Monday's 128-110 loss to the Suns.
It's his 10th double-double in the last 14 games and 21st of the year. Kanter is on pace to average a double-double for the second straight season, and while he typically doesn't offer much defensive production, he should continue to provide a solid frontcourt presence for a Knicks team anxiously awaiting the return of Kristaps Porzingis (knee)....

Knicks' Emmanuel Mudiay: Paces Knicks in loss
Mudiay scored a team-high 32 points (12-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding six rebounds and six assists in 33 minutes during Monday's 128-110 loss to the Suns.
After scoring a career-high 34 points against the Hornets last week, Mudiay nearly bettered that performance just four days later. He's scored in double digits in eight of the last nine games, averaging 20.0 points, 5.6 assists, 3.6 boards and 1.6 three-pointers over that stretch as he locks down the starting PG spot for the Knicks, at least in the short term....

Knicks' Courtney Lee: Joins starting lineup
Lee will start Monday against the Suns, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.
Lee will join the starting five for the first time all season with the likes of Tim Hardaway (heel), Damyean Dotson (shoulder) and Allonzo Trier (hamstring) all unavailable. He's played more than 20 minutes just once this season, posting seven points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in that game.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Tim Hardaway: Out Monday
Hardaway won't play in Monday's game against the Suns, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Hardaway is dealing with some right heel soreness he likely picked up during Sunday's game against the Pacers. In his stead, Courtney Lee and Frank Ntilikina figure to gain some extra minutes, especially considering Damyean Dotson (shoulder), and Alonzo Trier (hamstring) are also set to miss Monday's game....

Knicks' Allonzo Trier: Ruled out Monday
Trier (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Suns, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Trier is set to miss a fifth consecutive game as he continues to battle a balky hamstring. Courtney Lee is an option to see increased minutes in his absence. Trier will continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis, with Wednesday's matchup against the 76ers marking his next chance to return.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Out again Monday
Robinson (ankle) will not play Monday against the Suns, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Robinson continues to nurse a sprained ankle, which he picked up during Friday's game against the Hornets. The rookie will sit out for a second straight game, meaning Enes Kanter should again serve as the Knicks' primary option at center.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Damyean Dotson: Out again Monday
Dotson (shoulder) has been ruled out Monday against the Suns, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Dotson is still nursing a bruised shoulder, so he'll remain sidelined for a third straight game. Look for Courtney Lee to continue to see extended run in his absence, while Dotson will set his sights on potentially returning for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Trey Burke: Plays 13 minutes in return
Burke played 13 minutes off the bench Sunday against the Pacers after missing the previous six games.
Burke returned from a sprained knee and hit just one of his seven field goal attempts, though he did add four rebounds, three assists and a steal. For now, Emmanuel Mudiay appears to have a hold on the starting point guard job, though the Knicks' rotation has been as unpredictable as any in the league, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Burke works his way back into the lineup at some point in the near future....

Knicks' Enes Kanter: Big double-double against Pacers
Kanter scored a team-high 20 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 Ft) while adding 15 rebounds in 36 minutes during Sunday's 110-99 loss to the Pacers.
It's the third time in the last five games Kanter has delivered a 20-and-10 performance, and the 26-year-old now has 20 double-doubles in 31 contests. Developing Mitchell Robinson (ankle) will remain a top priority for the Knicks as the season progresses, which could make Kanter's role and court time erratic, but as long as he's seeing close to starter's minutes he'll be one of the few reliable fantasy assets on the roster....

Knicks' Frank Ntilikina: Will play Sunday
Ntilikina (ankle) is available to play in Sunday's game against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
As expected, Ntilikina will suit up Sunday despite leaving Friday's game with a sprained right ankle. Trey Burke (knee) is making his return from a six-game absence, however, and will likely cut into Ntilikina's work load in his first game back.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Damyean Dotson: Won't play Sunday
Dotson (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
This will be Dotson's second straight absence since he suffered a bruised shoulder in Wednesday's game against the Hornets. With the Knicks facing a back-to-back on Sunday and Monday, it's possible that Dotson could be facing a third straight absence due to the quick turnaround. Courtney Lee should once again see extended minutes off the bench in Dotson's absence Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Lance Thomas: Available to play Sunday
Thomas (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
After being out for over a month following knee surgery, Thomas will make his return to the court Sunday in Indiana. Given his lengthy absence, it's unclear where exactly Thomas fits in the Knicks' current rotation, especially given how they've made a point of favoring the younger players. If Thomas does see the floor Sunday afternoon, don't expect a large dose of minutes.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Trey Burke: Good to go Sunday
Burke (knee) will be available for Sunday's game against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
As expected, Burke will be back in action after a six-game absence due to a sprained right knee. Emmanuel Mudiay has performed admirably while taking on a larger role in Burke's absence, but with those two and Frank Ntilikina all healthy and active again, all three will likely be fighting for minutes at point guard going forward, which could put a cap on all of their fantasy values.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Damyean Dotson: Questionable for Sunday
Dotson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Pacers.
Dotson picked up a shoulder bruise during Wednesday's contest against the Hornets, forcing him to miss Friday's game against the Hornets. While he's apparently still dealing with soreness, there's a chance he'll be able to return Sunday after just a one-game absence.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Won't play Sunday
Robinson (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
Robinson doesn't appear to have made much progress on a sprained ankle he suffered in Friday's tilt with the Hornets. Although an official timetable for his return hasn't been made clear, fortunately for Robinson, the X-rays came back negative which indicates that he could be back sooner rather than later. In his stead, Noah Vonleh and Luke Kornet figure to see a boost in minutes.... See More ... See Less
Knicks' Trey Burke: Probable for Sunday
Burke (knee) is probable for Sunday's matchup against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
Burke has a strong chance of returning from his six-game absence Sunday, which has been the result of a sprained right knee. Assuming he's cleared to play, we may learn more following morning shootaround regarding his potential role during his first game back. While he's been out, Emmanuel Mudiay has stepped in, averaging 29.5 fantasy points in games Burke has missed. The two may battle for minutes moving forward.... See More ... See Less
