Kyle O'Quinn hasn't decided if he will pick up his player option for 2018-19.
"I came into the season, I don’t want to say without a role, but knowing that anything can happen," KOQ said. "Whether it be trade talks or things like that, I think I handled it well by putting myself in a solid position where I could display what I could do." His player option is worth roughly $4.2M, but he should be able to command a raise this summer after a strong finish to the season. After the All-Star break, KOQ averaged 8.7 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.9 blocks in just 21.6 minutes. Apr 19 - 11:22 AM

Kyle O'Quinn went off again with 15 points, 16 boards, five assists, four blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Bucks during a 115-102 loss on Saturday.

He's absolutely rolling. O’Quinn is the first Knick since Patrick Ewing in 1999 to record at least 13 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks in three straight games. If you added him after the Enes Kanter injury, it could be the difference in your championship. He's also a real joy to watch, so it's been an enjoyable experience all around.
Apr 7 - 10:04 PM

Kyle O'Quinn is getting another start on Friday against the Heat.

It's the front end of a back-to-back set, but KOQ has a chance to be out there for both games. He'll be risky because of foul trouble, but he can fill it up.
Apr 6 - 7:17 PM

Kyle O'Quinn hit 6-of-13 shots for 13 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks in Tuesday's loss to the Magic.

He's played well in his two games since returning from a hip injury and five swats tied his season high. With Enes Kanter (back) and Michael Beasley (illness) out, O'Quinn was primed for a big night and he came through. Hopefully he can keep it going when those two get healthy.
Apr 3 - 10:11 PM

Kyle O'Quinn (hip) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Magic.

O'Quinn started in place of Enes Kanter (back) on Sunday and finished with eight points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one block and two turnovers in 32 minutes. Kanter is listed as doubtful for Tuesday, for KOQ is likely in line to draw another start.
Apr 3 - 1:38 PM

Kyle O'Quinn made a start on Saturday with eight points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one block and two turnovers in 32 minutes against Pistons.

After missing the last three games, O'Quinn logged a season-high 32 minutes, which is shockingly high after his next best was 32. Enes Kanter (back) not playing explains most of it and coach Jeff Hornacek likely wanted KOQ out there on Andre Drummond. The Knicks are off for a few days, so maybe Kanter could be back. Congrats if you used him, but he's not a strong pickup until we find out more on Kanter.
Mar 31 - 7:46 PM

Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr., Troy Williams, Michael Beasley and Kyle O'Quinn will start against the Pistons on Saturday.

This makes Luke Kornet a little riskier because the the Knicks could use more Isaiah Hicks. As for O'Quinn he's in a great spot tonight and he could be worth an add in most leagues, assuming he's healthy.
Mar 31 - 4:52 PM

Kyle O’Quinn (strained left hip) is available against the Pistons on Saturday.

He's back after missing a week and he's in a great spot with Enes Kanter out. KOQ should be seeing minutes in the 20s today, and he can certainly fill it up in that time. Of course, DFS players will tell you all about how chalk O'Quinn can burn you, but he could have a big game today.
Mar 31 - 3:23 PM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said that Kyle O'Quinn (hip) went through practice on Friday and "looked okay." Honacek considers O'Quinn probable for Saturday's game vs. Detroit.

O'Quinn has missed each of the Knicks last three games due to the hip injury. Enes Kanter (back) is doubtful for Saturday's contest. If Kanter is unable to play, O'Quinn would likely draw the start and divvy up minutes at center with Luke Kornet.
Mar 30 - 12:58 PM

Kyle O'Quinn (hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

This will be O'Quinn's third straight game on the sidelines, which will translate to more minutes for Enes Kanter and Luke Kornet, with Kanter offering the most upside. After Wednesday, the Knicks are off until Saturday, so for now, we'll be considering KOQ questionable for that one.
Mar 28 - 11:05 AM

Kyle O’Quinn (strained left hip) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

O'Quinn has missed each of the Knicks previous two contests due to the hip issue. If KQO remains sidelined on Wednesday, Enes Kanter and Luke Kornet will continue to soak up extra minutes.
Mar 27 - 5:12 PM

Kyle O’Quinn (strained left hip) will not play on Sunday vs. the Wizards.

This is a new injury for KOQ, and at this point in the season the Knicks will have every reason to be cautious moving forward. Enes Kanter's workload is safe as the starting center, but with KOQ out, that means we'll get an extended look at Luke Kornet. The rookie has only played more than 20 minutes three times this season, averaging 11.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.7 blocks and 2.7 triples in those contests.
Mar 25 - 11:23 AM

Kyle O'Quinn scored 15 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals in 24 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

He's looking at minutes in the 20s most nights and he got a slight boost because Enes Kanter struggled against Joel Embiid. O'Quinn could be an option in DFS or as a stream, but he's been known to disappoint.
Mar 15 - 10:56 PM

Kyle O'Quinn went 3-of-9 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line on his way to eight points in 22 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 132-106 loss to the Raptors.

O'Quinn added seven rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two turnovers while he was out there, and he was able to see a slight uptick in minutes with Enes Kanter (back) unavailable. O'Quinn is about as inconsistent as they come, but he's been playing well over the past few weeks with averages of 8.7 points, 5.5 boards, 3.2 dimes, 2.0 swats and just 1.2 turnovers per contest. He's on the radar in deep leagues.
Mar 11 - 4:50 PM

Kyle O'Quinn racked up 14 points across just 17 minutes in Friday's loss in Milwaukee.

O'Quinn was very effective from the floor, going 6-of-8 while adding 2-of-2 from the free-throw line. He also chipped in with six assists, two rebounds, three blocked shots and a steal in his limited work. O'Quinn has been alternative solid stat lines with poor ones lately. That type of inconsistency makes him risky to use outside of deeper fantasy play.
