Robin Lopez notched eight points, 12 rebounds, three assists and two blocks on Wednesday, despite playing only 23 minutes.
RoLo hasn't had a double-double in over two weeks. He was averaging just under 30 minutes in New York's previous three games, but his playing time continues to rise and fall based upon matchups and Derek Fisher's whims. Because of his fluctuating role, Lopez is a late-round option for the foreseeable future. Nov 25 - 10:01 PM

Robin Lopez scored eight points with six boards and two assists in 25 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

Even with Dwight Howard (rest) out for Houston, Lopez struggled in the paint against Clint Capela and failed to record any blocks or steals. His contract with the Knicks isn't looking too good at the moment as he is averaging just 4.6 points, 6.0 boards and 1.0 block in 23.0 minutes per game in his last five, but his starting spot should be safe because the Knicks have won four straight and have a lot of money invested in the big man. Treat him as a low-end asset until further notice.

An unfavorable matchup limited Robin Lopez to just 14 minutes during Sunday's win over the Pelicans, and he finished the game with just five boards, three assists, two blocks and a steal while missing all three of his shot attempts.

Head coach Derek Fisher referenced Anthony Davis' ability to knock down the 3-point shot as the reason for keeping Lopez' minutes low today, as he didn't think it was fair to ask Robin to guard AD on the perimeter. Lopez hasn’t been very involved on the offensive end this season (17.2 usage rate), and his inconsistent minutes totals (27 minutes per game on the season) limits his upside. He’s worth owning as a shot blocking specialist in deep leagues, but it’s looking like it’ll take an injury for Robin to get anywhere near mid-round value in standard leagues.

Robin Lopez's streak of three double-digit scoring games screeched to a halt on Wednesday, as he went scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting in 31 minutes.

To his credit, he did have nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block. RoLo has a respectable 19.3 percent usage rage, a shade under his career high, and his role has been more robust over the past 10 days. Owners don't rely on him for offense anyway, so just consider it a bonus when he chips in 12+ points.

Robin Lopez was a force on the defensive end in Tuesday's win over the Raptors, blocking four shots with 12 points, eight boards, two assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

Lopez is playing much better after a painfully slow start to the season, and he is now averaging 12.7 points, 7.7 boards, 2.0 assists and 2.0 blocks over his last three games. The Knicks suddenly look like a respectable team in the East, and Lopez is a big reason why. His owners can finally deploy him with confidence.

Robin Lopez scored 14 points and grabbed a season-high 13 rebounds on Sunday, adding four assists and one block in 31 minutes.

The Lakers' opponents are averaging 47.8 rebounds per game this season, fifth-most in the league, so the matchup certainly worked in RoLo's favor. Lopez made 5-of-9 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs tonight -- he's off to a slow start in New York, due largely to fluctuating playing time, but his owners should remain patient.
Nov 8 - 7:26 PM

Robin Lopez grabbed just two rebounds in 22 minutes in Friday's loss to the Bucks, but did chip in with 12 poins and one block.

Lopez has averaged 10.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 26 mpg this season and though he shows flashes of good play the injury concerns are evident. He should still be viewed as viable low-end big man for 12-14 team leagues, but that's only because he has no real competition for minutes in New York.
Nov 7 - 12:21 AM

Robin Lopez chipped in eight points, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks during Saturday's 117-110 road win in Washington.

He played a season-high 31 minutes which is a relief, as he was averaging just 20.5 in the Knicks' previous two games. He hasn't been as good as owners hoped out of the gates, but coach Derek Fisher is still tinkering with his rotations and RoLo should see his role increase in the coming weeks.
Oct 31 - 10:04 PM

Robin Lopez scored 18 points with four rebounds, one assist and one block in 21 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

He had a bad game in the opener, which will happen for a guy like Lopez. He's always had a low usage rate, so fantasy owners will have to count on blocks, boards and efficiency. Ro-Lo is still worth owning in standard leagues.
Oct 30 - 12:06 AM

Robin Lopez had a disappointing season opener, scoring eight points with two rebounds and two blocks in only 20 minutes of action.

He was strong defensively, as usual, but didn't help fantasy owners much in limited minutes -- there's no reason to panic, as even Carmelo Anthony was held to 29 minutes in the blowout win. He's been bothered by sore knees this preseason, which could be a factor, but we expect better from RoLo vs. the Hawks on Thursday.
Oct 29 - 12:38 AM

Robin Lopez has been bothered by sore knees during the preseason.

It was revealed on Friday that Lopez had an undisclosed injury, so at least we know what it was now. To be clear, Lopez is expected to be fine and it's not serious enough to put him on the injury report. Lopez is a nice big to target towards the end of the middle rounds for owners targeting boards, blocks and FG percentage.

Robin Lopez revealed that he is dealing with an "undisclosed injury."

Lopez has had a very quiet preseason and hasn't played many minutes, so this makes some sense. While we don't know what the injury is, Lopez said that it wasn't serious. "Yeah [I've been dealing with a physical ailment], but it wasn't anything too serious," Lopez said. "I'm on the right track. I'm getting back to where I want to be and I'm almost there. It's nothing serious. Just the regular wear and tear." It clearly doesn't sound bad at all and we will leave him off the injury report for now. Lopez will be a solid source of boards, blocks and FG percentage and he should available towards the end of the middle rounds.
Oct 23 - 1:25 PM

In his Knicks debut on Wednesday, Robin Lopez racked up six points, four rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes of action.

RoLo has never averaged more than 31.8 minutes in a season, but he has a great chance to exceed that mark as New York's undisputed starting center. He's a sneaky source of boards, blocks and FG% in the late-middle rounds, and is particularly useful in 9-cat leagues -- he averaged a mere 1.2 turnovers last year.
Oct 7 - 10:12 PM

Knicks head coach Derek Fisher expects Robin Lopez to touch the ball more often than he is used to.

The Knicks aren't exactly teeming with offensive weapons, so Lopez should see more looks on offense than he did in Portland. Lopez averaged 9.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game on 53.5 percent shooting from the field last season, but it's safe to expect those numbers to climb. Give him a look towards the end of the middle rounds.

Phil Jackson thinks Robin Lopez has a good ability to defend the screen-and-roll.

While no mention of Batman, Jackson also praised Lopez's ability to score on the opposite end of the floor when he operates on the low block. A player who can impact the game without having plays called for him, Lopez will be asked to anchor a Knicks' defense.
