New York Knicks guard/forward Lance Thomas (left orbital fracture) is being listed as doubtful against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday. What It Means: Thomas is also dealing with concussion-like symptoms, so it seems like he's a serious long-shot to suit up. Look for Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Justin Holiday to see increased minutes with Thomas out. Holiday has averaged 6.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 19.4 minutes per game in 11 games without Thomas this season. He's sporting a shaky -0.9 nERD on the season, which ranks 313th in the NBA. Source:...

New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will not play on Sunday versus the Toronto Raptors. What It Means: Porzingis will miss his second straight game and fifth overall with the sore Achilles issue. The Knicks big man was expected to sit out on Sunday with hopes he would be good to go for New York on Monday. Lance Thomas is projected to get the start in Porzingis' place with Carmelo Anthony taking on a larger portion of the offensive responsibility. Thomas has not done much in Porzingis' absence, scoring a total of four points with eight rebounds and four assists...

New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will not play against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday. What It Means: Porzingis already sat out three games with the Achilles injury but has not looked sharp this week. He has averaged only 10.7 points and 3.7 rebounds while shooting 32.4% from the floor in his last three games. Particularly with the Knicks playing the second game of a back-to-back on Thursday, it makes sense for the big man to take a rest. Lance Thomas is expected to start in his absence. Thomas averaged 9.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 30.1...

Lance Thomas ruled out Monday in New York

New York Knicks forward Lance Thomas (left orbital fracture) will not play on Monday against the Atlanta Hawks. What It Means: Mindaugas Kuzminskas is in the starting lineup with Thomas and Kristaps Porzingis sitting out Monday afternoon. Thomas has a broken orbital bone and is out indefinitely, so Kuzminskas could be looking at some extended time while Thomas is out. Our models project Kuzminskas to score 12.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists over 24.7 minutes against the Hawks. Source: Rotoworld.com

Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis is ruled out Monday

Updating a previous report, New York Knicks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will not play on Monday against the Hawks. What It Means: The Knicks are pretty thin at forward with the injury to Lance Thomas, but Porzingis said he felt good during shootaround and was supposed to warm up pregame, so this is a bit surprising he has already been ruled out. Carmelo Anthony will once again be very busy, while Joakim Noah and Mindaugas Kuzminskas should see some big minutes. Our models project Anthony for 21.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 0.9 steals over 33.5...

Lance Thomas suffering from concussion symptoms, orbital bone fracture following Sunday’s game

If the Knicks lead the league in anything this season, they lead the league in orbital bone fractures. Knicks forward Lance Thomas suffered a particularly brutal blow to the head a mere two minutes into Sunday’s game against the Toronto Raptors. He struggled to get off the court, and would not return in New York’s 116-101. Now that the proper tests have been conducted, we are learning the full extent of the damage. And it ain’t good: Thomas has l. orbital fracture & concussion-like symptoms.He will be further evaluated tomorrow in New York& is expected to be out tomorrow.—...

Raptors 116, Knicks 101: Scenes from a leisurely afternoon in Crapville

LOL Knicks you suck. Clyde Frazier, the Bard of Rockin’ Steady, put it best: “This is the worst ever.” The venerable clothes horse has seen his share of Knicks basketball over the years, but Sunday afternoon’s 116-101 loss in Toronto against the Raptors might have been actually been the worst. Lance Thomas, starting in the place of the injured Kristaps Porzingis, got conked in the head by an elbow and had to leave the game after two minutes. Toronto scored 42 points in the second quarter. The Knicks scored 8 points in the third (and had to seriously hustle to get 6 of those points...

Knicks officially rule out Kristaps Porzingis against Milwaukee

New York Knicks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (sore left Achilles) will not play against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. What It Means: The Knicks seem to be playing it safe with Porzingis, who is expected to return soon. Lance Thomas will make his third consecutive start, while Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah should all benefit from more work. Our models Noah is a decent value play on FanDuel with a $4,900 price tag. We project him to turn in 6.1 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.1 blocks and 0.9 steals versus the Bucks. Source:...

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) downgraded to doubtful for Knicks

New York Knicks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (sore left Achilles) is unlikely to play Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks. What It Means: Porzingis will miss his third consecutive game, but he's expected to return soon. Lance Thomas is averaging 26.1 minutes in two starts since Porzingis went down. Our models don't like Thomas very much, but we think Joakim Noah might not be too bad on FanDuel with a $4,900 price tag. We project him to turn in 6.1 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.1 blocks and 0.9 steals. Source: Rotoworld.com
