Date:

Ramon Sessions was a DNP-CD on Friday.

With the Knicks earning a win, you can probably assume Sessions is going to be out of the rotation again. Drop him.
Oct 27 - 10:33 PM

Ramon Sessions will move to the bench on Friday.

It has not gone well for the Knicks with Session on the court with his rough -28.3 net rating. Sessions may get bumped from the rotation entirely, so he's not really worth owning in almost any fantasy league.
Oct 27 - 3:50 PM

Ramon Sessions tallied 10 points, seven boards and five assists in 33 minutes during Saturday's loss to Detroit.

With Frank Ntilikina (knee) sidelined, Sessions ceded backup minutes only to Ron Baker, who was largely ineffective. Sessions is arguably the worst starting point guard in the NBA, but he'll continue to log heavy minutes for a Knicks team without a more attractive alternative. As long as Ntilikina is sidelined, Sessions is worth consideration in DFS if you're looking to save money at PG.
Oct 21 - 10:53 PM

Ramon Sessions scored three points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes during his start against the Thunder on Thursday.

He's not exactly going to be a fan favorite because he's not exactly a highlight factory and all Knicks fans will want to see what Frank Ntilikina can do. Sessions could be a fantasy adhesive bandage until they can find someone else to pick up in deep leagues.
Oct 19 - 11:58 PM

Ramon Sessions scored nine points with five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 23 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

John Wall turned him inside-out in the first quarter and Sessions just won't be able to make a positive impact on a team that needs help from the point guard spot. Still, he could start on opening night, but he's not a reliable fantasy option.
Oct 6 - 10:34 PM

Ramon Sessions, Tim Hardaway Jr., Doug McDermott, Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle O'Quinn will start the Knicks preseason opener on Tuesday.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said he would experiment with different lineups for the first few games, so we won't read too much into this. As it stands, only two players are guaranteed to start this season and that is THJ and Porzingis.
Oct 3 - 7:06 PM

The Knicks officially announced the signing of Ramon Sessions on Tuesday.

Sessions could realistically open the 2017-18 season as New York's starting point guard, but he'll likely cede that starting spot to Frank Ntilikina towards the second half of the year when player development becomes a primary focus for the Knicks.

Ramon Sessions and the Knicks have agreed on a one-year, $2.3 million deal, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

There's a decent chance he starts for the Knicks. Frank Ntilikina is a serious project and the Knicks likely don't want to start Ron Baker despite his contract. Sessions has been very durable in his NBA career and his claim to fame is his 83-game season in 2013-14, so he could actually be a name to watch in fantasy.
Jul 28 - 2:43 PM

The Knicks may consider signing Ramon Sessions.

New York desperately needs to add a point guard or will risk entering the 2017-18 season with Ron Baker as their starting PG. Sessions is coming off a disappointing season in which he averaged 6.2 points and 2.6 assists, while shooting just 38.0 percent from the floor, before undergoing season-ending knee surgery in February. The Knicks can only offer the veteran's minimum, but Sessions may not receive a better offer. He actually might have some fantasy value in deeper leagues if he landed a starting gig in New York.
Jul 13 - 10:22 AM

The Hornets will decline Ramon Sessions' $6.3M contract option for the 2017-18 season, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

Sessions will likely have to settle for something closer to the veteran's minimum in order to keep playing, and he's hitting free agency at the wrong time in a flooded point guard market. There is no fantasy relevance to be found here regardless of where Sessions makes his next home.
Jun 29 - 6:40 PM

The Hornets aren't expected to exercise Ramon Sessions' team option for 2017-18.

Thursday is the deadline, but Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer said the Hornets won't pick up his $6.3 million option "barring an extreme change in circumstance." Hornets GM Rich Cho has said many times that he wants to address the backup PG this spot this offseason, so this shouldn't be a surprise. If the Hornets aren't able to bring in a quality backup behind Kemba Walker, we could see Malik Monk play some PG during his rookie season -- the Hornets are going to experiment with him there during the Summer League.
Jun 26 - 11:24 AM

Hornets GM Rich Cho said the team will likely address their backup PG spot this summer.

In short, don't expect the Hornets pick up Sessions' player option for $6.2 million next season. Sessions had a brutal year for the Hornets, averaging 6.2 points, 2.6 assists and 1.5 rebounds on 38.0 percent shooting. He just turned 31 years old and had knee surgery back in February, so the demand for Sessions as a free agent probably won't be too high.
Apr 13 - 11:33 AM

Ramon Sessions (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

Sessions was cleared to play on March 24, but he never actually made his way back to the court. With both Sessions and Kemba Walker (knee) unavailable for the Hornet's regular-season finale, Brian Roberts and Briante Weber will split the point guard minutes in Charlotte.
Apr 11 - 6:23 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) has been cleared to play, but will not on Friday.

He is way past his original timeline and it's more about Briante Weber being ahead of him right now. Sessions could get minutes at some point, but he's not a fantasy option.
