Sasha Vujacic, Courtney Lee, Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah started on Thursday.
Vujacic is more of a placeholder to keep Brandon Jennings as a leader of the bench unit. This is also a good indicator the Knicks will have Derrick Rose available to start the season. Oct 20 - 7:58 PM

When discussing New York's options at point guard behind Brandon Jennings with Derrick Rose (personal) sidelined, Jeff Hornacek mentioned Sasha Vujacic, Ron Baker and Chasson Randle as possibilities.

Woof. Vujacic has a guaranteed contract so he's the default third-string option behind Rose and Jennings, but this is obviously a less than ideal situation.

Sasha Vujacic has officially re-signed with the Knicks.

Vujacic will re-join the Knicks on a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum. He'll help the team with a veteran presence off the bench, but he can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Knicks re-sign G/F Sasha Vujacic.

Marc Berman of the New York Post reports Vujacic's deal is a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum. While Vujacic will provide the team with a veteran presence off the bench, he's not on the fantasy radar.

According to the New York Post, the Knicks are interested in re-signing Sasha Vujacic.

Langston Galloway has moved on to the Pelicans, so the Knicks need to add some more depth at shooting guard behind Courtney Lee and Justin Holiday. The Knicks can only offer Vujacic the veteran’s minimum, but it's unclear if any other teams are interested in the 32-year-old guard. He's not on the fantasy radar.

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

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.
