Sasha Vujacic hit just 2-of-8 shots and missed all three of his 3-pointers for four points, four rebounds and six assists in 22 minutes of Tuesday's start.
The boards and assists helped ease the blow to fantasy owners, but he was playing much better than this coming in. Thankfully, his season is officially in the books for the Knicks. Apr 12 - 9:22 PM

Date:

Sasha Vujacic stayed hot vs. Charlotte on Wednesday, hitting 6-of-9 shots to finish with 16 points, four 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists in just 25 minutes.

Vujacic scored 21 points with five 3-pointers on Sunday and has been unusually consistent from the field lately, hitting 53.7 percent of his attempts over the past six games. He's chipping in 1.8 triples, 3.5 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.0 steals during that span, so deep-league owners desperate for perimeter shooting should give him a look.
Apr 6 - 11:08 PM

Sasha Vujacic scored 21 points in a 92-87 loss to the Pacers on Sunday, shooting 7-of-15 from the field and 5-of-10 from deep.

With Carmelo Anthony (rest), Kristaps Porzingis (shoulder) and Jose Calderon (quad) out, the Knicks had to rely on Vujacic a lot tonight and he didn't disappoint, adding three boards, three assists and three steals in 32 minutes. He was held to single-digit points in each of his last 11 games, so there's obviously no reason to add him unless he posts another line like this.
Apr 3 - 10:09 PM

Sasha Vujacic will continue to start at shooting guard with Arron Afflalo coming off the bench.

Kurt Rambis has no intention of changing up his starting five or rotation despite the Knicks being eliminated from the playoffs, which makes absolutely no sense at all. Regardless, Vujacic isn't worth owning in any league while Afflalo is a (very) low-end asset in fantasy formats. Unfortunately, Jerian Grant is wavier wire fodder because his development apparently isn't a priority for an organization that needs to evaluate its future and desperately needs to find young players capable of stepping up. Weird.

Sasha Vujacic started again on Sunday but went scoreless on 0-of-5 shooting in 13 minutes vs. the Kings.

It's only a matter of time before Vujacic returns to a marginal bench role, as he's been lousy over his past four starts, averaging 4.5 points on combined 6-of-24 shooting. He belongs on the wire.
Mar 20 - 10:31 PM

Sasha Vujacic will continue to start at shooting guard on Saturday vs. the Wizards.

This means that Arron Afflalo will come off the bench again. Vujacic hasn't scored in double digits in three straight games, so most fantasy owners can continue to ignore him.
Mar 19 - 10:28 AM

Sasha Vujacic struggled in 21 minutes on Wednesday with four points on 2-of-8 shooting, four boards, one assist and one steal.

Vujacic has been bad all season and he got a rough matchup vs. Klay Thompson and the Warriors tonight, so this was a foreseeable outcome. Vujacic continues to start ahead of Arron Afflalo (15 points in 35 minutes), but even if he keeps the job he's hardly worth your attention.
Mar 17 - 1:08 AM

Sasha Vujacic will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Warriors, with Arron Afflalo coming off the bench.

Through 11 games as a starter this season, Vujacic has put in averages of just 7.3 points, 3.9 boards, 2.1 assists and 1.2 triples per game on 35.4 percent shooting, so he can't be considered a viable target in most settings. Afflalo's value takes a hit with the second unit.
Mar 16 - 1:06 PM

Sasha Vujacic struggled from the field on Sunday, hitting 1-of-8 field goals (1-of-7 from deep) to finish with five points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes.

Vujacic had a nice game as a fill-in starter on Wednesday, but in the two games since he's a combined 4-of-15 from the field. With Arron Afflalo (abdomen) back in action, the Machine is only worth your attention in very deep leagues.
Mar 14 - 12:32 AM

Sasha Vujacic will start vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

Arron Afflalo is questionable with a strained abdomen but regardless of his status, Vujacic will be starting alongside Jose Calderon. The Machine scored 23 points in his first fill-in start for Afflalo on Wednesday but he cooled off on Friday, and makes for a very volatile option at any depth.
Mar 13 - 8:16 PM

Sasha Vujacic earned another start at the two-spot on Friday with Arron Afflalo (abdomen) unavailable, but only managed to produce nine points, two boards, three assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

This was the expected letdown following Vujacic's random 23-point explosion vs. the Suns on Wednesday. Afflalo's being listed as day-to-day with his injury, so there's little incentive to swoop up Vujacic in most leagues.
Mar 12 - 2:34 AM

Sasha Vujacic started at SG on Wednesday in place of Arron Afflalo (abdomen), and he lit up the Suns for 23 points on 7-of-8 shooting with six 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes.

The Machine was well-oiled tonight. Vujacic came in with a True Shooting percentage of 41.3 percent, which ranked 333rd out of 336 qualifying players, but he had no trouble scoring vs. the Suns tonight. Phoenix has the league's worst 3-point defense, which played into Vujacic's strengths, and he's not a reliable pickup with Afflalo day-to-day.
Mar 9 - 11:56 PM

Sasha Vujacic will start Wednesday's game in place of Arron Afflalo (strained right abdominal).

Vujacic draws a favorable matchup vs. the Suns but there's no reason to anticipate substantial production. Afflalo's absence opens up more shot attempts, which could give a slight boost to Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Langston Galloway, among others.
Mar 9 - 7:34 PM

Sasha Vujacic scored 13 points vs. the Raptors on Thursday with six boards, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

The Knicks were missing three key players in Carmelo Anthony (knee), Kristaps Porzingis (illness) and Jose Calderon (groin), so Vujacic stepped back into the rotation tonight. Vujacic was a DNP-CD on Tuesday and doesn't play many minutes when the Knicks are healthy, so feel free to ignore him.
Jan 28 - 11:25 PM

Sasha Vujacic's familiarity with the offense is why he's getting minutes over Jerian Grant.

Of course, Grant isn't going to get more familiar with an offense he's uncomfortable with by sitting on the bench, so Derek Fisher may want to explore the other side of this coin, as well.
