Arron Afflalo (strained glute) said that he expects to play in Sacramento's regular-season opener against the Suns.
Afflalo sat out Sacramento's previous preseason game, but he described the strained glute as a minor injury, so it doesn't sound like this is an issue that will linger into the regular season. Afflalo was in an ideal situation to produce in New York last year, but only managed to put up 15th-round value in standard 9-cat leagues. He has some more competition for minutes in Sacramento, so he's not worth drafting in standard leagues. Oct 20 - 7:00 PM

Arron Afflalo (strained glute) and Matt Barnes (ribs) will not play vs. the Clippers on Tuesday.

Afflalo has nothing to prove in the preseason and will be the starter at SG on opening night, assuming this injury is as minor as it sounds. However, his upside is low after averaging 12.8 points, 3.7 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.3 treys and 0.4 steals in 33.4 minutes per game for the Knicks last season. Garrett Temple, Ben McLemore and Malachi Richardson will see more run Tuesday.

Arron Afflalo (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Wizards.

AA doesn't have anything to prove to his new team, so he'll join fellow teammate Rudy Gay on the sidelines for this one.
Oct 15 - 6:16 PM

Arron Afflalo started at shooting guard vs. the Lakers on Tuesday and scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting.

He’s the heavy favorite to start on opening night and solidified his case tonight. Afflalo added five rebounds, one steal and two treys, and he did all of his damage in 18 minutes. However, he only averaged 12.8 points, 3.7 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.3 treys and 0.4 steals in 33.4 minutes per game for the Knicks last season, so we’re not expecting a whole lot of improvement from the 30-year-old wing. Give him a look late if you're desperate for a SG.

Arron Afflalo said he's never been more eager to prove his worth as a player.

"I can say this is probably the hungriest I’ve ever been in my life, just to prove myself as a player, not for selfish reasons, but just to show that I can really be a part of a team and help them go to the next level," Afflalo said. "Sacramento wasn’t too far from making the playoffs. That’s my goal, just to work hard and get these guys on the right train and get us into the playoffs." He signed a two-year, $25 million deal, so he's likely going to be the starting shooting guard on opening night. Regardless, he's a low-end asset at best after averaging 12.8 points, 3.7 boards, 2.0 assists and 1.3 triples last season.
Jul 22 - 12:21 PM

Unrestricted free agent Arron Afflalo has agreed to a two-year, $25M deal with the Kings.

The Kings continue their search for a shooting guard and get Afflalo on a short, solid deal. He will enter his age-31 season and it'll be interesting to see how his post-up game meshes with DeMarcus Cousins. Afflalo won't be getting a ton of shots once again, so his fantasy value doesn't increase here. This addition makes it less likely the Kings land Dion Waiters.
Jul 2 - 2:52 PM

Arron Afflalo will reportedly opt out of his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.

This was the expected move all along, as Afflalo made numerous comments throughout the year about being upset with regards to how he was utilized in New York. Afflalo will now be free to sign with a team of his choosing, but after compiling averages of just 12.8 points and 1.3 triples per game with the Knicks this past season, it's unlikely he'll be able to establish himself as a standard league asset next year.
Jun 21 - 2:24 PM

Arron Affalo is expected to opt out of his player option for the 2016-17 season.

Affalo hasn't made a decision yet on his $8 million option for next season, but he is expected bet on himself and opt out. The 30-year-old averaged 12.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.3 treys in 2016-17 and won't be much of a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues no matter where he ends up.

Arron Afflalo said that he still views himself as a "premier two-guard" in the league, and implied that he'll be opting out of his contract if a starting spot in New York's backcourt is not guaranteed.

"I still believe I'm one of the premier two guards in this league and part of being an elite two guard in this league is opportunity," Afflalo said. "You have to be in a certain environment where you can excel and show what you can do and hopefully that contributes to winning. And I still believe I'm that player so I'll find the best opportunity for me whether it's in New York or anywhere else." It doesn't seem very likely that Afflalo will be back with the Knicks next season.

Arron Afflalo will likely wait until the late-June deadline to decide if he'll opt-out of his contract.

Afflalo has until late-June to decide he'll pick up his $8 million player option and said he'll likely take his time on the decision. Afflalo is all but certain to exercise his option after expressing displeasure with his bench role in New York, so we'll probably see the 30-year-old in a new uniform next year. While a bounce-back season is always a possibility, it's hard to look at Afflalo as anything more than a late-round flier in 2016-17 drafts after averaging just 8.0 points per game in 2015-16.
Apr 12 - 12:54 PM

Arron Afflalo missed his lone field goal attempt on Sunday, finishing scoreless with three boards and one assist in 23 minutes off the bench.

The Knicks were surprisingly competitive in this game, keeping it close before falling 93-89 to the visiting Raptors, so Afflalo's lack of production is even more glaring. He's expressed displeasure with his bench role and is all but certain to opt out of his $8 million player option this summer.
Apr 10 - 10:25 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 15 points with eight boards, two assists, one block and one steal in 34 minutes vs. the Pacers on Sunday.

He was just 5-of-15 from the field, but he had to be aggressive with Carmelo Anthony (rest), Kristaps Porzingis (shoulder) and Jose Calderon (quad) all on the shelf. Afflalo is playing for a new deal this summer, but his fantasy value has taken a major hit since his move to the bench. Unless Anthony gets another night off to rest, Afflalo will be difficult to rely on outside of deeper leagues.
Apr 3 - 10:28 PM

Arron Afflalo came off the bench on Wednesday with just three points on 1-of-7 shooting, three rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

Afflalo made it clear that he's unhappy with a reserve role but said that he hasn't spoken about it with coach Kurt Rambis -- which is odd, because Rambis said they have spoken about it. It's a strange situation that dents Afflalo's fantasy appeal and makes it more likely that he'll opt out of his contract this summer.
Mar 30 - 11:46 PM

Arron Afflalo made it clear that he is not happy coming off the bench in New York.

"Frustration ain’t the word," Afflalo said of his reserve role. "It is what it is." Kurt Rambis said that Sasha Vujacic brings more "speed" and a "level of activity" to the first unit than Afflalo, but Afflalo clearly does not agree with that assertion. Afflalo also maintains that the interim head coach never had a conversation with him regarding a permanent move to the bench, and with AA's season ending on a sour note, he seems very likely to opt out of his deal this offseason. As a reserve for the Knicks, Afflalo isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 30 - 2:10 PM

Arron Afflalo is expected to remain in his bench role for the remainder of the season.

Kurt Rambis said he doesn't intend to change his starting lineup or rotations with the Knicks officially eliminated from the playoff picture, so AA should get used to his sixth man role. He's really not an appealing asset, is not a specialist and carries basically no upside. You should be able to do better.
