Jeff Hornacek was disappointed that the Knicks had to waive Lou Amundson.
"With Lou, it came down to a matter of how many bigs we have. We have a lot of bigs on the team," Hornacek said. "So that was a tough one." Amundson is nearing the end of the road in his NBA career. Oct 22 - 4:42 PM

Knicks waive F/C Lou Amundson.

He had a guaranteed portion to his contract, so the Knicks let talent trump money on this one. Amundson will likely get picked back up at some point after he gets healthy.
Oct 21 - 2:25 PM

Lou Amundson (back) won't play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Rockets.

Amundson has dealt with back issues in the past, so it's not great that this is already cropping up for him this early in the year. Amundson is nothing more than an emergency depth kind of guy with the Knicks, and is not worth drafting in any setting.
Oct 4 - 6:56 PM

Knicks sign F/C Lou Amundson.

It's a fully guaranteed deal for the 33-year-old big man. Amundson played just 7.0 minutes per outing in his 29 games last season. While he may make the team, Amundson isn't in line for minutes next season while the Knicks are healthy.
Sep 19 - 3:56 PM

Lou Amundson (respiratory illness) will not play vs. the Heat on Sunday.

The late-breaking announcement shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups, given that the veteran has played a total of two minutes in February. Consider him day-to-day.
Feb 28 - 7:37 PM

Lou Amundson (back) did not play in Wednesday's 98-90 win at Miami.

It's unclear whether he's still suffering from back spasms or was merely the victim of a healthy DNP-CD. Either way, he's a non-entity in the fantasy realm.
Jan 6 - 10:12 PM

Lou Amundson (back) did not play on Sunday.

He's dealing with lower back spasms but his availability doesn't matter for fantasy purposes -- he's appeared in four games in December.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 10:39:00 PM

Lou Amundson (back) will not play on Saturday vs. the Hawks.

Amundson is not in the rotation, so his absence won't have any fantasy implications.
Sat, Dec 26, 2015 07:11:00 PM

Lou Amundson recorded one assist and two fouls in eight minutes in Saturday's win over the Knicks.

He was on the injury report earlier in the week for a lacerated scalp that he suffered against the Hornets, but he will obviously be fine. Amundson isn't a factor in fantasy leagues.
Sat, Nov 21, 2015 11:24:00 PM

Lou Amundson (lacerated scalp) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

He was elbowed in the head by Marvin Williams (he was ejected) and there were only a few minutes left, but the injury isn't serious. Consider Amundson day to day. He finished with one board and one assist in seven minutes.

Lou Amundson was a DNP-CD vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

He recently dealt with a back injury but isn't a part of Derek Fisher's rotation even at full strength. We're taking him off the injury report.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 11:19:00 PM

Lou Amundson (back) did not play vs. the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

He was probable to play and it's unclear whether he's still injured or Derek Fisher simply didn't opt to deploy him. Either way, his permanent home is the waiver wire.
Wed, Nov 4, 2015 11:08:00 PM

Lou Amundson (back) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

Amundson has yet to make his regular-season debut, and while he may be available to play on Wednesday, there are no guarantees he actually steps foot on the court. He's not worth owning in any league.

Lou Amundson (back) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Amundson still hasn't played this season and will be joining a crowded frontcourt rotation when he does return. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Nov 2, 2015 05:54:00 PM

Lou Amundson (back) will not play on Saturday vs. the Wizards.

Kevin Seraphin (knee) is available to play on Saturday, meaning Amundson's path to minutes just got even harder. He is not on the fantasy radar.
