The New York Knicks will be without forward Carmelo Anthony (sore left knee), point guard Derrick Rose (sore right foot), and forward Lance Thomas (sore hip) on Thursday against the Portland Trail Blazers. What It Means: Rose and Thomas both were injured during Wednesday's loss to the Utah Jazz, while Anthony is getting extra rest. Justin Holiday, Chasson Randle, and Mindaugas Kuzminskas will see extra time against the Blazers. None are strong fantasy plays, though. Kristaps Porzingis will shoulder a heavy offensive load on Thursday. Porzingis was projected for 16.3 points, 7.0...

Trail Blazers 110, Knicks 95: Scenes from a youthful loss

Lots of rookies, lots of missed jumpers. The New York Knicks’ young bench has often kept games close after the starting lineup has crapped all over the court at the outset. What Thursday’s matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers presupposed is...what if the youngsters were starting? With Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Lance Thomas all on the shelf with various injuries, Jeff Hornacek with three rookies in the starting lineup: Ron Baker, Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Will Hernangomez. As if to show their veteran mentors all the valuable lessons they’ve learned this past season, the young...

Injured Knicks Derrick Rose, Carmelo Anthony, Lance Thomas sit out

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Derrick Rose said if it were a playoff game he would have taken some painkillers and tried to play. Because the Knicks aren't playing for anything but lottery position, he didn't push it.

Guillermo Hernangomez to come off Knicks' bench Wednesday

New York Knicks center Guillermo Hernangomez is listed as a reserve for Wednesday's game, with guard/forward Lance Thomas starting. What It Means: The Knicks are mixing things up against Utah's imposing defense, with Kristaps Porzingis lining up across from Jazz center Rudy Gobert. Hernangomez hasn't been great as a starter in his past few games, so hopefully the benching will fire him up. In a starting role tonight, Thomas projects for 28.4 minutes, but just 8.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.1 assists. Source: Rotoworld.com

New York Knicks: Evaluating Lance Thomas’ Future With The Team

In what was a quiet year for Lance Thomas, we look at his future down the stretch with the New York Knicks, and the looming possibilities that come with the 3 years remaining on his contract.

Willy Hernangomez starting for Knicks, Lance Thomas to bench

New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez will start and guard/forward Lance Thomas will move to the bench against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. What It Means: Head coach Jeff Hornacek said he wants to develop chemistry between Hernangomez and Kristaps Porzingis. The additional size up front should bode well against Milwaukee's length. Hernangomez is worth holding in most formats. numberFire's models project Hernangomez for 8.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 20.4 minutes on Wednesday night. Source: Rotoworld.com

Lance Thomas: Face fracture was an indirect ‘blessing’

Lance Thomas fought plantar fasciitis early in the season then was out for 14 games after suffering a fractured orbital bone. But he is back, and his presence has helped the Knicks’ defense. “Continue to stay vocal, just be aggressive. Do the things that my teammates expect of me. And just do it at a...

76ers 105, Knicks 102: Scenes from a wasted Lance Thomas masterpiece

You don’t deserve Lance, Knicks. The New York Knicks went into Philadelphia and against all odds they pulled out a loss for the tank. Derrick Rose missed two drives late, Carmelo Anthony bricked a horrible iso-Melo jumper and Courtney Lee whiffed on a game-tying three at the buzzer. Strong stuff, guys. Lance Thomas led the Knicks with 21 points.

New York Knicks: Lance Thomas Is Finally Playing Like Himself

For the first time this season, New York Knicks forward Lance Thomas is playing like himself. The key: being healthy for the first time this season.

This is the player Jeff Hornacek has waited all season for

ORLANDO — Lance Thomas has replaced Ron “Burgundy’’ Baker as Jeff Hornacek’s favorite player. With the Knicks defense rising up, Hornacek dished all the credit to Thomas’ return after a month-long absence. Thomas broke the orbital bone in his face in mid-January when he got clocked by the elbow of Raptors center Jonas Valunciunas. Thomas never...
