Arron Afflalo scored 16 points with six boards, three assists and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday.
He shot just 6-of-18 from the field, but he had to take on a larger role in the offense with Carmelo Anthony in foul trouble. Afflalo has scored 14 or more points in his last three games with a total of eight 3-pointers in that span, so he should be able to return late-round value if he can stay healthy. Nov 21 - 11:34 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 14 points with two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

He was in a little bit of foul trouble and was still able to muster up a solid line. Afflalo has been healthy for five games now, averaging 12.0 points, 3.4 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.0 treys. That’s probably a fair expectation, which is good for late-round value. in 14-team leagues. He’s not a high-upside player.

Arron Afflalo scored a season-high 16 points against the Hornets on Tuesday with three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He attempted five shots from beyond the arc, which will be a key thing to watch for his fantasy value. Afflalo is surprisingly putting the ball on the floor a lot this season, but he would probably be better suited as a guy to hit spot-up threes. Afflalo's ceiling isn't too attractive and he doesn't even have a steal or a block yet, but feel free to give him a pickup while he's healthy.
Nov 17 - 10:45 PM

Arron Afflalo played 30 minutes in the starting lineup on Friday with 14 points, three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.

He didn't have any setbacks to his hamstring for the second game in a row. Afflalo could not shake his hamstring issue until this week and the Knicks should really be counting on him for offense. Also, he was a ghost in the first quarter, so he salvaged a decent line here. If you were eyeing him as a pickup, now's the time to get him.

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) made his season debut on Wednesday with 12 points on 6-of-13 shooting, six rebounds, one assist, and zero 3-pointers, steals, blocks or turnovers.

He played 28 minutes and should stick as the starting SG as long as he's healthy, making him worth a pickup in 12-team leagues. The scoring and 3-point shooting ought to be enough for low-end value, but don't expect more than a trickle of rebounds and assists to accompany non-existent defensive stats. We'll also keep an eye on how he responds physically over the next few days, as he was using a heating pad to stay loose throughout the game.
Nov 11 - 9:50 PM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

Sasha Vujacic is likely headed to the bench, and he can be cut in just about all leagues with the demotion to the second-unit. It's surprising to see Afflalo make his regular-season debut as a starter, but perhaps the extended time on the sidelines was him preparing himself to log major minutes right out the gates. We'll let you know how he fares after the game, but with no real certainty surrounding exactly how many minutes he'll play tonight, he'll make for a risky play in DFS.
Nov 11 - 5:41 PM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) has been put on the active roster for Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets.

Cleanthony Early will head to the inactive list with this move, and it sounds like there's a decent chance Afflalo makes his regular-season debut on Wednesday. He'll likely play limited minutes off the bench to start, but head coach Derek Fisher has implied time and again that he'll look to shake up the starting unit once Afflalo is 100 percent, meaning Sasha Vujacic days in the starting lineup are numbered. Afflalo will be one of the better offensive players for the Knicks this season, so he's worth a speculative add in standard leagues.
Nov 11 - 5:31 PM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) said that he is "probable" to play in Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets.

"I think I’m pretty much there," said Afflalo. "It’s just about the process of building up the endurance in my hamstring and make sure this time when I come back there’s no coming out now." Afflalo has yet to make his regular-season debut for the Knicks, but it sounds like he has a decent chance of suiting up on Wednesday. He'll likely be brought along slowly to ensure he doesn't aggravate the hamstring injury, but given the amount of opportunity he'll see in New York this season, he's worth a speculative add in standard leagues.
Nov 11 - 9:57 AM

Arron Afflalo (left hamstring strain) will not play against the Raptors on Tuesday.

Afflalo is now hoping to make his season debut against the Hornets on Wednesday, while Sasha Vujacic will likely against start in his place on Tuesday. Langston Galloway will also see an uptick in minutes and is worth a look in daily leagues.
Nov 10 - 12:28 PM

Arron Afflalo (left hamstring strain) is unlikely to make his season debut on Tuesday against the Raptors.

The Knicks have a back-to-back set and play again on Wednesday in Charlotte, so Afflalo could be targeting the second of the two games to finally get on the floor. Originally believed to be a 1-2 week injury, we're now about a month into Afflalo's injury and the veteran is still without a firm return date.
Nov 9 - 12:42 PM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will not play on Sunday vs. the Lakers.

Afflalo is said to be targeting a return for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, but the Knicks may ease him back into the rotation. The Knicks' backcourt is really struggling at the moment, so Afflalo's return will be a nice boost for the club. Sasha Vujacic will continue to start on Sunday.
Nov 7 - 1:29 PM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) said that it's possible that he could play on Sunday.

"They’re going to put me through some extreme tests [Saturday] to see how I respond. I will say that I will be out there within a week for sure," Afflalo said. "I think I can confidently say that from our discussions, and based on where I’m at. I can’t say Sunday for sure, but I am anticipating trying to get out there this road trip." It sounds like there is a much better chance that he debuts against the Raptors on Tuesday, but we could have another update this evening. The Knicks desperately need some production from their backcourt, so Afflalo should eventually step into a sizable role as arguably the No. 2 option on offense. For what it's worth, Afflalo did not practice on Saturday.
Nov 7 - 9:35 AM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) is unlikely to play on Sunday.

He said he is hoping to play on Tuesday against the Raptors or Wednesday against the Hornets. The Knicks will be keeping his minutes down for at least a few games due to how he's aggravated his hamstring multiple times. Sasha Vujacic gets the starts, but Langston Galloway is getting the value.
Nov 6 - 10:45 PM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will remain sidelined for Friday's matchup with the Bucks.

Afflalo is making progress, and his next chance to play will come Sunday vs. the Lakers. Sasha Vujacic will continue to start with Afflalo on the sidelines, but with averages of just 6.4 points and 1.0 steal per game, he can't be considered a viable option in any format.
Nov 6 - 5:54 PM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) could play on Friday.

He has to go through practice on Thursday without a setback. Afflalo has multiple aggravations of his hamstring, so the Knicks will be careful. Regardless, he'll have a minutes restriction.
