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.

Sasha Vujacic scored eight points with two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

He played a lot of important minutes in the fourth quarter. Vujacic picked up 27 minutes on Wednesday because of garbage time, but he did not play in his previous three games. Leave the Machine on the wire.

Sasha Vujacic played well in 27 minutes during Wednesday's blowout, scoring 10 points with two 3-pointers, seven assists and three steals.

He took advantage of extra playing time with Derek Fisher going deep into his bench to rest his starters in a lopsided game during a back-to-back set. Vujacic was awful as a starter to begin the season and he was coming off three straight DNP-CDs, which tells you all you need to know.

Sasha Vujacic was a healthy DNP-CD on Wednesday.

Vuc can be cut in all leagues now that Arron Afflalo (hamstring) has taken his spot in the starting lineup.

Sasha Vujacic will move to the bench on Wednesday.

He has not been good at all, making 18.5 percent from deep. Vujacic may get bumped to single digits in minutes tonight.

Sasha Vujacic acknowledged that he's in a shooting slump.

Shooting 30.2 percent from the field and 19.2 percent from distance, The Machine appears to be broken at this time. "I got to make a better friendship with the baskets at the Garden and everything will be OK," Vujacic said. Derek Fisher said recently that he didn't want to shake up the Knicks' solid second unit, so Vujacic is likely to stick in the starting five until Arron Afflalo (hamstring) returns.

Knicks head coach Derek Fisher said that he won't think about changing New York's starting lineup until Arron Afflalo (hamstring) is able to return to the court.

That means it'll be Sasha Vujacic as New York’s starting shooting guard for the foreseeable future, although with averages of just 5.8 points, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game on 29.0 percent shooting, Sasha isn't worth owning in almost any league.
Tue, Nov 3, 2015 04:12:00 PM

Sasha Vujacic hit just 1-of-7 shots for two points, four rebounds and three assists over 20 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

Vujacic might have gotten some attention in deep leagues for his starting role and the Knicks' four-game week. As you can see he needs to go on a prolonged hot streak before owners should take him seriously in most formats.
Mon, Nov 2, 2015 11:16:00 PM

Sasha Vujacic had 11 points, six rebounds, three assists, four steals and zero turnovers as a fill-in starter on Wednesday, hitting 4-of-6 shots with one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

The Machine started because Arron Afflalo is out with a hamstring injury, and Afflalo has suggested that he might need another week or two to fully recover. Tonight's line is quite encouraging, but even with a starting job gifted to him Vujacic isn't an exciting play in DFS or standard leagues.

Sasha Vujacic will start at shooting guard on Wednesday against the Bucks.

Arron Afllalo (hamstring) isn't in a hurry to come back, so Vujacic has a small window to emerge as a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues. Jose Calerdon, Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Robin Lopez will also start on Wednesday.
Wed, Oct 28, 2015 12:28:00 PM

Sasha Vujacic started at SG on Wednesday and had nine points, five rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 20 minutes of action.

Vujacic's familiarity with the triangle offense makes him a favorite of Derek Fisher and Phil Jackson, but he's expected to shift to a bench role once Arron Afflalo (hamstring) is healthy.
Wed, Oct 7, 2015 10:23:00 PM

Sasha Vujacic will start at shooting guard for the Knicks' preseason game on Wednesday.

Arron Afflalo recovering from a hamstring injury, so Vujacic will get the call tonight as he's proficient in the triangle offense. Perhaps Sasha can establish himself as a 3-point specialist in deep leagues, but he's not making a blip on the radar in standard formats.
Wed, Oct 7, 2015 05:55:00 PM

Sasha Vujacic said that he is open to helping players learn the triangle offense.

"Of course, of course. I was always someone that helped players on the court. We have a lot of rookies and a lot of younger players –- I still consider myself young by the way -– so we have a great mix of guys and I’m looking forward to teaching them and giving them help," Vujacic said. "I don’t want to be a teacher because we have a coach that will lead us towards something [but] if there’s going to be anything needed for me to show or do I’ll be more than happy to do so." Phil Jackson previously said that Vujacic will be a "significant force" off the bench this season, but he isn't on the radar in standard leagues.

Phil Jackson said Sasha Vujacic will be a "significant force" for the Knicks off the bench.

"The bonus is that, having played for me in L.A., Sasha knows the triangle and can help our off-guards get the hang of playing on top of the floor," Jackson said. Vujacic is likely already ahead of Cleanthony Early, but the Knicks are likely going to try and play Jerian Grant right off the bat. Sasha is only a target in deep leagues.
