Shane Larkin played 36 minutes against the Pistons on Friday with 16 points, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He started overtime for the Knicks and looks like the biggest beneficiary of the Jose Calderon (Achilles) injury. Larkin has rarely put up multiple good games in a row and has yet to score in double figures in consecutive games all season. We'd like to see it again before adding him in 14-team leagues.

Shane Larkin (illness) is a go for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

With Jose Calderon (Achilles) on the shelf, Larkin will have an opportunity to slide into the starting lineup tonight. However, with season averages of just 5.6 points, 3.1 assists, and 1.3 steal on 39.2 percent shooting as a starter, he's not a great option in most leagues.
Feb 27 - 10:14 AM

Head coach Derek Fisher is hopeful that Shane Larkin (illness) will be able to play on Friday against the Pistons.

Jose Calderon is doubtful for Friday with an Achilles issue, and after he was spotted wearing a walking boot at practice on Thursday, there's almost no chance that he plays against the Pistons. Larkin has missed the last three games due to strep throat, but he was able to get some conditioning work in recently. Even if Larkin returns and plays big minutes Friday, his value is still limited to deeper leagues for now. Langston Galloway stands to benefit the most from Calderon's absence and should be owned in almost all leagues.
Feb 26 - 7:22 PM

Shane Larkin (illness) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

This will be his third straight game on the sidelines, but head coach Derek Fisher said that Larkin could return later in the week. However, Larkin isn;t exactly a big part of the rotation in New York, and with averages of just 5.4 points, 2.5 assists, 2.0 boards and 1.3 steals per game, it's safe to leave him on the wire. Expect Jose Calderon and Langston Galloway to continue logging big minutes in the backcourt on Wednesday.
Feb 25 - 10:15 AM

Shane Larkin (illness) will not play vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

Larkin is expected to be out for several days according to coach Derek Fisher, but his role isn't big enough to impact most fantasy leagues. Jose Calderon and Langston Galloway should both see an uptick in minutes on Sunday, while newcomer Alexey Shved may see the floor as well.

Shane Larkin (illness) will not play against the Heat on Friday.

While Larkin's illness shouldn't keep him out long, he's not worth owning in standard fantasy leagues anyway. Even though he could have more playing time open up if Jose Calderon is traded, Larkin is better off left on the wire for now.
Feb 19 - 1:15 PM

Shane Larkin played nine minutes against the Magic on Friday with four points and one assist.

Jose Calderon (knee) is probably going to miss time, so he should get some run. Although, Langston Galloway is getting a lot of playing time at point guard now. Larkin is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 24 - 12:00 AM

Shane Larkin (ankle) is probable for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

He sprained his ankle on Thursday but it was never thought to be anything serious. Larkin should be good to go on Monday, but he is too unreliable to use outside of deeper leagues.
Jan 18 - 11:01 AM

Shane Larkin sprained his left ankle during Thursday's game against the Bucks, and he will not return.

Larkin finished Thursday's game with one assist, one rebound, and three turnovers over 19 minutes of action, which really highlights how ineffective he can be despite seeing quality minutes. The Knicks don't play again until Monday, and we'll be considering him questionable for that one.
Jan 15 - 5:22 PM

Shane Larkin will draw the start against the Bucks on Thursday.

Larkin's opportunity to start will come at the expense of Pablo Prigioni as the Knicks attempt to get a look at younger players. The 22-year-old is averaging 6.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.6 steals, and 0.8 three-pointers over his last three games and is worth a look in deeper leagues if for nothing else but his steals numbers.
Jan 15 - 1:56 PM

Shane Larkin played 27 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday with 12 points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

The Knicks look to be bumping Pablo Prigioni from the rotation, which will help Larkin. He's not much of a scorer, but the steals, dimes and treys could eventually make him a low-end asset in standard leagues. Additionally, the Knicks look bad for not picking up his option this offseason.
Jan 10 - 4:58 PM

Shane Larkin came off the bench for 10 points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Pablo Prigioni started and played 20 minutes, but had just three points, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer. As long as Prigioni is starting he looks like a better option than Larkin, but Larkin is worth keeping an eye on with his strong play of late.
Jan 7 - 10:00 PM

Shane Larkin will move to the bench against the Wizards.

He is going to move into the second unit because putting Larkin and Jose Calderon on the floor at the same time makes little since on defense. In his last six games Larkin averaged 7.2 points, 3.2 boards, 4.2 assists, 2.2 steals and 0.3 steals on 42.5 percent from the field. Outside of the steals and dimes, there’s not much to his fantasy game.
Jan 7 - 5:37 PM

Shane Larkin played 31 minutes against the Grizzlies on Monday with seven points, three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one 3-pointer during an ugly 105-83 loss.

It's a decent line and the Knicks are going to need him to play around 30 minutes while the team figures out what to do with scoring the ball. Larkin won't have an extremely high upside, so he's not a great add in standard leagues.
