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

Lou Amundson missed practice on Wednesday morning due to a sore back.

The good news is that Amundson is expected to practice later in the evening, so we will leave him off the injury report for now. The Knicks added a ton of frontcourt depth this summer, so Amundson's role is set to take a major hit. It's safe to ignore him in fantasy leagues.

Knicks sign F/C Lou Amundson.

The Knicks said they would prioritize bringing Amundson back and Knicks president Phil Jackson put his money where his mouth was in re-signing Amundson. Sweet Lou averaged 6.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.2 blocks in 19.8 minutes after the break last season, but will have a touch time finding minutes with Robin Lopez and Kyle O'Quinn now in town so he can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 30 - 9:55 AM

Head coach Derek Fisher said that the Knicks "prioritized" bringing back Lou Amundson this summer.

"We obviously prioritized having Lou back," Fisher said, "and we feel like from the time he joined our team during the season last year to finish the season, he was just very impactful and he picked up on a lot of things that we are trying to do. He's a worker and so we felt good about investing in him because of what he invested in us when he showed up last year." Amundson gave the Knicks some good minutes last season, but he will likely be buried on the depth chart after they acquired Robin Lopez, Kyle O'Quinn in free agency. Amundson can be ignored in standard leagues.
