Knicks coach Mike Woodson suggested that Toure Murry and Jeremy Tyler will play rotation minutes in the final two games of the regular season.
They each played exactly one minute in Sunday's victory, and the prospect of 15-20 minutes off the bench doesn't come close to giving them fantasy appeal. The Knicks can give Murry a $1.0 million qualifying offer for next season, while Tyler has a minimum deal which is only partially guaranteed, so both guys will be looking to impress on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Knicks assigned G Toure Murry to the Erie BayHawks.

Murry will get some burn on Friday night against the Springfield Armor. The rookie is expected back with the Knicks for Saturday's game against the Heat.

The Knicks have recalled Toure Murry from the Erie BayHawks of the D-League.

Murry was sent to the D-League on Wednesday in order to get more practice time, and will rejoin the Knicks on Thursday. The rookie has played well in spurts, but his playing time (9.1 minutes per game during January) severely limits his fantasy potential unless there are some injuries in front of him.
Jan 30 - 11:42 AM

Toure Murry played 27 minutes off the bench against the Raptors on Sunday with 11 points, three rebounds, six assists, three steals and two turnovers on 5-of-11 shooting.

He played very well and coach Mike Woodson praised Murry after the game. Beno Udrih is also falling out of favor, so it wouldn't be a total shock to see the Knicks make a change. At this stage right now, I'm about playing the guys who are gonna play hard," Woodson said. He's only worth a look in very deep leagues for now since there is no hard evidence on a lineup change just yet.

Toure Murry will play the second-string point guard spot behind Beno Udrih on Wednesday.

The Knicks are going to start with Iman Shumpert on Russell Westbrook to help take at least some pressure Ben Udrih. Murry is a long way from having fantasy value, but he had a great offseason and could be fun to watch.

Toure Murry tweaked an ankle in Wednesday's game against the Bucks and did not return.

The team announced he was able to return, but he did not after his 10 minutes prior to injury. Murry had no points, two boards, one assist and one steal, so it's hard to imagine him having any sort of value in almost any leagues, especially with Beno Udrih's performance.

Toure Murry may have locked up a roster spot on the Knicks with Monday's game, scoring 12 points with five boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

He hit a fadeaway jumper from halfcourt to beat the third-quarter buzzer. The Knicks broadcast was buzzing about him for much of their time on the air and he looks to be the 15th guy on the team. Murry can make plays, but he won't be in the rotation while the Knicks are at full strength.

Toure Murry appears to have made the Knicks opening-night roster.

C.J. Leslie looked to be ahead of Murry, but Leslie didn't get off the bench on Thursday, so his Knicks run is likely coming to an end. Murry looked great in the fourth quarter on Thursday, finishing with 14 points, two boards, two steals and one 3-pointer on 5-of-7 shooting. He's a bigger guard at 6'5", but is nothing more than emergency depth for New York.

The Knicks have signed G Toure Murry and G Chris Smith.

Murry had a nice summer league and the combo guard showed a full array of skills. He's a decent defender, but the deck is still stacked against him to contribute with the club. The team has plenty of backcourt depth, so they're likely a little more inclined to keep a big man after training camp.

Former Wichita State G Toure Murry will attend the Knicks' training camp.

The Heat reportedly showed interest in Murry, but he opted to join New York after an impressive showing at Summer League. Mike Woodson has praised his decision-making and defensive abilities, but there aren't enough minutes available in the Knicks' backcourt for Murry to have fantasy relevance.

The Knicks could invite Toure Murry to training camp after impressing coach Mike Woodson.

"He’s a kid who was a two and made the transition to the one and he’s a big one," Woodson said. "He gets up the floor and extends defensively and has good decision-making skills. He’s a guy we got to keep our eye on in bring to camp." Murry shot 57.1 percent from the field on his 14 shots in his first two summer-league games and received 25 minutes in his second outing. Of course, he has a long way to go to be a factor with the Knicks.
