Pablo Prigioni (back) is probable for Wednesday to face the Bulls.
He has been expected to play all along, but it's still not clear how the team will use him. Regardless, Prigioni doesn't fill up the stat sheet and is not a fantasy option almost anywhere Oct 28 - 3:25 PM

Pablo Prigioni (back) is probably for the Knicks' season opener against the Bulls.

While head coach Derek Fisher expects Jose Calderon (calf) to play, Prigioni would likely draw the start ahead of Shane Larkin if Calderon experiences any setbacks. Prigioni doesn't possess a ton of season-long fantasy upside, but he could be a sneaky play in daily leagues if Calderon is held out Wednesday night.

Pablo Prigioni (sore lower back) did not practice on Monday.

He was seen wearing a large wrapping around his back, but this seems like a minor thing at the moment. We'll be monitoring Prigioni's status going into Wednesday's game, but whether he suits up or not shouldn't be a concern for owners in standard leagues.

The Knicks may be trying to trade Pablo Prigioni as part of a package with recently-acquired SG Wayne Ellington.

New York's backcourt is crowded and their best bet of unloading Ellington may be pairing him with a useful PG such as Prigioni, who shot 46.4 percent from downtown last season and posted a stellar 3.9 assist-to-turnover ratio. If Prigioni is traded, Shane Larkin would likely assume backup PG duties behind Jose Calderon.
Aug 6 - 9:31 AM

Knicks PG Pablo Prigioni is excited to play alongside former teammate Jose Calderon this season.

Prigioni projects as the Knicks' primary backup PG, ahead of Shane Larkin. "[Calderon] is a great player and very good professional, a great 3-point shooting guy," said Prigioni. "He can run the team and read the game very well and is a good defender." While NBA fans may quibble with the last point, the combination of Calderon and Prigioni gives New York a pair of veteran, pass-first guards who are also deadly at the free throw line and behind the arc.

Pablo Prigioni will move to the bench on Monday night vs. the Pistons.

His playing time keeps going south and he's only seen 13.5 minutes per game over his past two games. Prigioni doesn't do enough in the stat sheet to count on him in fantasy leagues.
Mar 3 - 6:37 PM

Pablo Prigioni had seven points, five rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 3-of-5 shooting Tuesday.

He's starting for the Knicks but has been very inconsistent. He was clearly effective tonight, but getting him to do it again on Wednesday against the Pelicans will be easier said than done. Just keep an eye on him as long as he's starting for the Knicks.
Feb 18 - 11:45 PM

Pablo Prigioni scored three points on 1-of-2 shooting with six rebounds and one assist over 22 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bucks.

Prigioni will be worth keeping tabs on in deeper leagues as long as he's starting, but he's going to struggle to accumulate any value at 20 minutes per game, which is what it looks like he'll be getting now that Iman Shumpert is back.
Feb 4 - 12:59 AM

Pablo Prigioni started again at shooting guard and had six points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in Saturday's loss.

He's failed to even score in two of his last four games and is averaging just 3.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, a steal and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five. As long as he's starting he's worth a close eye, but he's not doing enough to be owned in most leagues.
Feb 2 - 1:35 AM

Mike Woodson is expected to start Pablo Prigioni next to Raymond Felton going forward.

The Andrea Bargnani injury has left coach Mike Woodson with little choice but to go with the double point guard lineup. However, that doesn't mean Prigioni will be a fantasy asset. He's started eight games this year, averaging 5.4 points, 3.8 assists and 2.5 rebounds while playing 26.5 minutes.
Jan 24 - 9:51 AM

Pablo Prigioni scored two points in 19 minutes in his return from a foot injury on Monday to go with five boards, two assists and three turnovers.

The Knicks like using Prigioni in the starting lineup and he's one of their better perimeter defenders. On the other hand, his 10.5 percent usage rate is dead last among all point guards with at least 10 minutes per game, which is obviously going to limit his fantasy upside. He's not on the radar in standard leagues.
Jan 20 - 9:12 PM

Pablo Prigioni will join Raymond Felton, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler in Monday's starting lineup.

Coach Mike Woodson has hinted at this lineup quite a bit this season and it's official now. The Knicks will still bring Andrea Bargnani off the bench a little earlier that usual, so this move doesn't hurt his value too much. The Knicks will mix and match their way with starting lineups until their team is healthy again. Prigioni is only on the radar in deep leagues.
Jan 20 - 1:48 PM

Pablo Prigioni (toe) could start against the Nets on Monday in his return from injury.

"I haven’t made that decision on which way to go,’’ coach Mike Woodson said after Sunday’s practice. "I’m going to sleep on it and make a decision tomorrow." The move would bump the struggling Iman Shumpert to the bench and the Knicks would go to a two-point guard lineup. The Knicks have some solid offensive and defensive splits with Prigioni on the court vs. when he's off, so it's not a bad idea to give him more burn. He's still only on the radar in deep leagues.

Pablo Prigioni (toe) will not play on Thursday or Friday.

He warmed up prior to Friday's game and is now targeting a return on Monday, but even that isn't guaranteed. His return is bad news for guards like Beno Udrih and J.R. Smith, whose roles are already on thin ice.
Jan 16 - 5:54 PM

Pablo Prigioni (foot) is hoping to return to action either Thursday or Friday.

Prigioni remarked, "I don't know if it's tonight or tomorrow but I'm happy how I feel now." While Thursday's game is a hope for Prigioni, he is not expected to play against the Pacers, making Friday's game against the Clippers more likely for his return. Prigioni's fantasy value will be low as long as Raymond Felton is healthy, but his return should cut into any remaining value that Beno Udrih and Toure Murray had left.
