Kevin Seraphin is beginning to find his place with the Knicks.
"I think he’s getting more comfortable being on this team and understanding what it is we’re asking our big men to do offensively and defensively," Derek Fisher said. Seraphin played a season-high 32 minutes on Sunday with 14 points, seven boards, four dimes, a steal and four blocks, but his role and production is too volatile to be relied upon. Nov 30 - 9:48 AM

Kevin Seraphin set season-highs across the board vs. Houston, notching 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and four blocks in 32 minutes.

He got hot and Derek Fisher rode him down the stretch, with the result that starter Robin Lopez (15 minutes) was rooted to the bench. Owners in standard leagues should only glance at Seraphin despite this solid outing -- he's cracked 20 minutes twice all season and his matchup-based role is as mercurial as they come.

Kevin Seraphin played 11 minutes and did not score on Friday, adding two assists, one steal and five fouls.

Coach Derek Fisher is probably going to shuffle his bench bigs here and there, so owning Seraphin won't be smooth sailing. You have to be in a very deep league to even consider him.

Kevin Seraphin scored 10 points in 21 minutes against the Hornets on Tuesday with five rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

Coach Derek Fisher rode the momentum of Seraphin's strong game from Sunday and he had another nice game today. He's pushed Kyle O'Quinn out of the rotation at least for now, so maybe Seraphin can keep a role in the low 20s for minutes. Of course, he's extremely inconsistent in his career. He's only worth a look if you're desperate for a big.

Kevin Seraphin and Derek Fisher recently had a meeting to discuss Seraphin's playing time.

"It’s frustration when you don’t play for sure,’’ Seraphin said. "I went to his office and asked him, ‘What do you expect from me?’ ‘What I should do more and better to be on the court?. He expects more from the defensive part. He told me the offensive part, don’t worry about this part, get more rebounds and make some stops.'" Seraphin saw a season-high 14 minutes in Sunday's game, an indication of where his fantasy value stands.

Kevin Seraphin was a spark off the bench for the Knicks during Sunday's win over the Pelicans, putting up 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go with three boards, two assists, one steal and two turnovers in 14 minutes.

Seraphin didn't get into the game until the second-half, but he was extremely effective once he got on the court, and played most of the fourth quarter. Derek Fisher praised Seraphin's energy on defense, and perhaps after today's strong showing, Seraphin has earned himself a larger role in the rotation. That being said, Seraphin is still nothing more than a reserve for the Knicks and he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues as he fights for reserve minutes with Kyle O'Quinn.
Nov 15 - 3:55 PM

Kevin Seraphin logged 10 minutes off the bench vs. Cleveland, scoring four points on 2-of-4 shooting with one block and no other stats to his credit.

Seraphin was in poor condition during the preseason and he's reportedly still out of shape after rehabbing a knee injury. We'll let you know if he puts together any fantasy-worthy performances.
Nov 4 - 11:07 PM

Kevin Seraphin (knee) made his Knicks debut on Monday in a five-minute stint.

Word from team friendly reporting outlets is that he is out of shape. Whether it's his knee or being out of shape, Seraphin hasn't shown anything to warrant fantasy consideration.
Nov 2 - 11:13 PM

Kevin Seraphin (knee) will be in uniform for Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

This doesn't mean he will play, but it's a great sign that he is getting closer. With Kyle O'Quinn playing so well off the bench, the best-case scenario for Seraphin would be to see minutes in the low teens moving forward. Owners in most leagues can comfortably ignore him.
Oct 31 - 11:22 AM

Kevin Seraphin (knee) is now considered questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards.

Seraphin hasn't made his season debut yet, but the good news is that he is just dealing with knee soreness. Kyle O'Quinn is playing really well off the bench at the moment, so Seraphin won't see too many minutes upon his return.
Oct 31 - 9:14 AM

Kevin Seraphin (sore right knee) will not play against the Hawks on Thursday.

Seraphin will be joining a crowded frontcourt rotation when he is able to return, so he isn't worth keeping an eye on in most leagues. Kyle O'Quinn will continue to see solid minutes off the bench.
Oct 29 - 6:37 PM

Kevin Seraphin (sore right knee) will miss Wednesday's regular season opener against the Bucks.

Seraphin doesn't have any pain in his knee, but is dealing with swelling and is without a timetable. The 25-year-old has been dealing with knee problems since his time with the Wizards and can be left on waivers as Kyle O'Quinn, Kristaps Porzingis, and Derrick Williams are set to see time ahead of him.

Kevin Seraphin (sore right knee) did not practice on Monday.

Seraphin's knee has been an issue dating back to his Wizards tenure, and it's not a good sign that he's now missing time again following returning from the same injury earlier in the preseason. Until he can stay on the court consistently, Seraphin will have a hard time asserting himself in the rotation. And even then, it may be a challenge.
Oct 26 - 12:55 PM

Kevin Seraphin (sore right knee) struggled in New York's exhibitions on Friday and Saturday, scoring a combined four points on 2-of-15 shooting.

Kyle O'Quinn is having an excellent preseason, the Knicks are committed to playing Kristaps Porzingis, and even Derrick Williams has emerged as a rotation player in the frontcourt. Seraphin's stock continues to dwindle and it could take a few injuries for him to land a fantasy-worthy role.
Oct 19 - 1:55 PM

Kevin Seraphin (knee) will play on Friday.

He has probably lost a little bit of ground due to Kyle O'Quinn looking good. Seraphin can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
