Sasha Vujacic scored 10 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.
He almost led a comeback in this game, but it came up just short. Vujacic logged all of his minutes as the point guard, but coach Jeff Hornacek didn't have him defend John Wall for most of his minutes out there. If Chasson Randle (ankle) misses another game and Carmelo Anthony gets a night off, The Machine may actually be busy. It would take a little slice of crazy to use him, of course. Apr 6 - 10:44 PM

Date:

Sasha Vujacic started Sunday's game but shot just 1-of-10 from the field for four points, five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 25 minutes.

Carmelo Anthony (back) was out again and it's unclear when he might return. With Lance Thomas (hip) also ailing, it's possible Vujacic will continue to play a big role after playing 36 minutes on Friday. His shot looks busted, though, and he's not worth your attention outside of the deepest leagues.
Apr 2 - 3:51 PM

Sasha Vujacic started on Friday vs. the Heat and scored nine points on 4-of-12 shooting with seven assists, three rebounds, one assist and one triple in 36 minutes.

The Knicks don't always tank games, but when they do, they deploy Sasha Vujacic. The Knicks rested their studs tonight and may continue to do so, but Vujacic isn't a fantasy pickup.
Mar 31 - 10:48 PM

Sasha Vujacic will start against the Heat on Friday night.

The Knicks will get The Machine in there as they have their players "hurt" for today's game. Mindaugas Kuzminskas should still get plenty of minutes off the bench, and he's a better option than Vujacic.
Mar 31 - 7:28 PM

Sasha Vujacic scored a season-high 12 points in 22 minutes on Wednesday, making 4-of-10 shots with two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one block.

Vujacic gave New York some scoring punch on a night they desperately needed it. The fact that this was his season-high, though, says all you need to know about his fantasy prospects.
Feb 1 - 11:29 PM

Sasha Vujacic started at shooting guard on Wednesday vs. the Hawks and scored two points on 1-of-7 shooting.

Starting in place of Courtney Lee (wrist), Vujacic brought almost nothing to the table with five rebounds, one assist and one steal. Lee is day-to-day and Justin Holiday had a big game off the bench with 14 points in 34 minutes, so fantasy owners can comfortably ignore Vujacic.

Sasha Vujacic will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, with Courtney Lee (wrist) unavailable.

This will be Vujacic's first start of the year, but we're not expecting much with Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis healthy. He's shooting just 34.4 percent from the field this season with unimpressive statistics, so he can't be considered a viable target in most settings.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 06:43:00 PM

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.

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.
Tue, Apr 12, 2016 09:22:00 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.
Wed, Apr 6, 2016 11:08:00 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.
