New York Knicks center Guillermo Hernangomez will start at center on Wednesday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. What It Means: Hernangomez will be filling in for Joakim Noah (hamstring), who will not suit up tonight. Look for Kyle O'Quinn to also see an up-tick in minutes while Kristaps Porzingis also gets a slight boost in fantasy value. Our models have Hernangomez playing 29.0 minutes tonight, and we project him to turn that playing time into 11.8 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists. Source: Rotoworld.com

Joakim Noah missing third straight for Knicks

New York Knicks forward/center Joakim Noah (hamstring) and guard/forward Lance Thomas (face) will not play against the Denver Nuggets on Friday. What It Means: Noah missed the past two as well due to a hamstring strain. Kyle O'Quinn should continue to start and makes for an attractive play on FanDuel with his $4,200 price tag. numberFire's models project O'Quinn to record 30.0 fantasy points against Denver, in the form of 11.0 points, 9.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 2.1 blocks, 24.7 minutes. He's our top-rated value play for the Friday night slate. Source:...

Joakim Noah (hamstring) sidelined Wednesday for Bulls, likely out Friday too

New York Knicks forward/center Joakim Noah (hamstring) will not play against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday and is unlikely to play Friday against the Denver Nuggets. What It Means: Noah has a chance to play on Sunday, according to head coach Jeff Hornacek, but he'll likely have a strict minutes limit upon return. Willy Hernangomez needs to be owned everywhere while Kyle O'Quinn is always an intriguing short-term option when given extra opportunity. Our models expect Hernangomez to record 12.3 points, 10.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 blocks in 28.2 minutes on...

Knicks starting Kyle O'Quinn on Monday

New York Knicks forward/center Kyle O'Quinn will be in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers, with Joakim Noah (hamstring) unavailable. What It Means: Noah is expected to miss more time, so O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez will both be on the streaming radar this week. O'Quinn is as volatile as they come with both foul trouble and monster stat lines, making him suitable as a DFS tournament play. He's averaging 8.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks in six starts this season. Our models have O'Quinn down for 9.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.4...

Knicks expected to start Kyle O'Quinn on Monday

New York Knicks center Kyle O'Quinn is expected to start in place of center Joakim Noah (hamstring) on Monday against the Los Angeles Lakers. What It Means: Despite O'Quinn being the expected starter, Willy Hernangomez has been out-playing both Noah and O'Quinn recently, so expect him to get plenty of run on Monday as well. O'Quinn is averaging 8.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks in his six previous starts, but he is also averaging about 4.5 fouls per-36 minutes in those six games. O'Quinn is averaging 6.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 blocks over...

Knicks will be without Joakim Noah on Monday night

New York Knicks center Joakim Noah (hamstring) will not play against the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night. What It Means: Noah hurt his hamstring on Saturday but despite this he returned to the game, only to leave again after a brief stint. He might be looking at a hefty absence if his hamstring injury is serious, so adding Willy Hernangomez right now is a must in fantasy hoops. Kyle O'Quinn should get some extra minutes as well while Noah is out. Noah is having a disappointing first season in New York with just 5.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 22.1 minutes per...

Knicks bringing Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) off bench in return

New York Knicks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) is coming off the bench in his return to the lineup on Thursday versus the Washington Wizards. What It Means: Derrick Rose, Ron Baker, Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Kyle O'Quinn will all start again after pulling out a win in Boston on Wednesday night. Porzingis should be on a strict minutes limit in his first game since January 11, but he's expected to play some time at the five. Our models expect Porzingis to play 30.5 minutes on Thursday and turn in 17.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.7 blocks against...

Knicks will be without Joakim Noah versus Wizards

New York Knicks center Joakim Noah has a sprained ankle and will not play on Thursday versus the Washington Wizards. What It Means: Noah missed Wednesday's game as well and is without a timetable for his return. We would expect him to be doubtful to play Saturday versus the Phoenix Suns as well. Kyle O'Quinn started in Noah's place on Wednesday, but Willy Hernangomez benefited the most with 17 points and 11 rebounds in 20 minutes. Kristaps Porgzingis will also play on Thursday and will take a few minutes at the five spot as well. In five starts this year, O'Quinn has averaged...

Joakim Noah (ankle) doubtful for Knicks Thursday

New York Knicks forward/center Joakim Noah (ankle) is not expected to play on Thursday versus the Washington Wizards. What It Means: Noah sat out on Wednesday and will receive an MRI Thursday morning to evaluate his ailing ankle. Kyle O'Quinn, Willy Hernangomez and Marshall Plumlee are all helping fill the void up front, but none have been consistent enough to be worth picking up. Noah is averaging 5.6 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 23.1 minutes per game this season. He currently ranks 127th in the NBA with a 0.3 nERD. Source: Rotoworld.com
