Robin Lopez had 17 points, 13 rebounds and three assists on 6-of-12 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Celtics.

He also had 11 offensive rebounds, which is a dream if you played him in a league that counts them. Ro-Lo has been very good all season long and doesn't appear ready to slow down any time soon.
Feb 2 - 10:19 PM

Robin Lopez admitted that he overreacted a little bit when he made contact with Chris Paul during Friday's game.

"Things were getting pretty chippy out there," Lopez said. "It happened so fast. Kind of hard to recall, but maybe I overreacted a little bit. What happened, happened. I'm OK with it." Lopez was ejected with two technical fouls, but a suspension doesn't seem likely. For now, Lopez is safe to leave in active lineups for Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Robin Lopez was ejected for two technical fouls on Friday against the Clippers.

It was the right call with his contact on Chris Paul and losing his cool after. He's probably not going to be suspended for this given that he doesn't have a bad history -- not counting mascots. Lopez finished with six points, seven rebounds and one steal in 17 minutes.
Jan 22 - 9:15 PM

The Knicks won their sixth straight home game on Wednesday, aided by Robin Lopez's 22 points on 11-of-14 shooting, 12 rebounds and three blocked shots.

RoLo snared six offensive boards and was aggressive offensively all night, appearing to relish the matchup vs. Rudy Gobert. He added just one turnover in 40 minutes and has officially turned the corner after a sluggish start to the season, posting mid-round value in his past 10 games.
Jan 20 - 11:49 PM

Robin Lopez double-doubled against the 76ers on Monday with 16 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 33 minutes.

He's logging consistent minutes when he's not in foul trouble and is getting more chances to produce on offense. In his last nine, Lopez averaged 12.8 points, 7.1 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.8 turnovers on 57.0 percent from the field and 89.5 percent from the line. He has sixth-round value in that span and should be owned in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 5:17 PM

Robin Lopez played well against his brother on Wednesday, finishing the Knicks' 104-110 loss with nine points, 12 rebounds (seven offensive) and one block in 31 minutes.

The Knicks' jumper-heavy offense is producing the fewest points in the paint this season, at a mere 35.8 per game, but RoLo's opportunities have been steadily increasing in recent weeks. He's played a minimum of 26 minutes in seven straight games, something that hadn't happened more than three straight times previously this season, and at this point he shouldn't be on any waiver wires.
Jan 13 - 11:39 PM

Robin Lopez hit 6-of-7 shots for 15 points, five rebounds and a block in Tuesday's win over the Celtics.

Ro-Lo has been quite relevant lately and is averaging 13.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks over his last five games. Those aren't mind-blowing numbers, but he's worth an add if you are hurting at center.
Jan 12 - 11:46 PM

Knicks coach Derek Fisher said that Robin Lopez is starting to take advantage of some opportunities on the offensive end.

"He has gotten stronger and in better condition as the season has gone on,’’ Fisher said. "I think he’s continuing to be aware of where his opportunities are offensively. He’s taking advantage of what’s there.’’ Lopez's minutes are finally on the rise and he is averaging 12.0 points, 6.4 boards, 2.4 assists and 1.8 blocks in 31.2 minutes over his last five games. That's good for top-75 value, so pick him up if you need a center.
Jan 10 - 10:40 AM

Robin Lopez continued his strong play vs. the Heat on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 19 points on 9-of-12 shooting with four boards, one assist, two blocks and one turnover.

Lopez got the better of Hassan Whiteside tonight and his role has really stabilized recently, with fewer unexpected dips in playing time (35 minutes tonight). His usage rate has also ticked upward and he's averaging 11.8 points on 58.7 percent shooting in his past five games, to go along with 7.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 3.0 blocks. Pick him up if you need a center.
Jan 6 - 10:16 PM

Robin Lopez had nine points, eight rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 35 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

Ro-Lo's not the most exciting center to own, but he has been effective lately, averaging 9.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.8 blocks over his last five. If those numbers ring your bell, feel free to take a flier on him.
Jan 5 - 11:38 PM

Robin Lopez scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds on Sunday for his second double-double of the season, making 7-of-10 shots with a season-high five assists and three blocks.

RoLo is warming up after an icy start to the season, averaging 10.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 3.7 blocks in New York's past three games. He did commit five turnovers tonight, and his minutes still aren't robust (23.0 per game in January), but he's worth a look if you need a low-end source of boards, blocks and FG percentage.
Jan 3 - 9:52 PM

Robin Lopez wasn't intimidated by Andre Drummond on Tuesday, racking up 11 points, seven rebounds, a steal and a season-high six blocks in a tough win over the Pistons.

Ro-lo is averaging 9.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.6 blocks over his last five games, putting him on the center radar in many fantasy leagues.

Robin Lopez, who exited Saturday's game due to a cut above his right eye, started Sunday's game and had eight points, six rebounds, two assists and one block in 30 minutes.

He was available to return on Saturday and the injury was never considered serious. The real challenge for his fantasy value is a lack of consistent minutes (23.4 per game) and an unexpectedly small role offensively -- his usage rate of 16.2 ranks 10th on the Knicks' roster.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 10:37:00 PM

Robin Lopez (eye) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

His face was in rough shape after Saturday's loss to the Hawks and he needed six stitches above his right eye, but he will obviously be fine. He is averaging 9.0 points, 5.2 boards and 1.4 blocks over his last five games, so he isn't a must-own player by any means.
