E'Twaun Moore returned to action on Sunday December 9.

Dec 10 - 4:00 AM

Frank Ntilikina fouled out of Sunday's game with a season-high 18 points on Sunday, making 7-of-11 shots with a perfect 4-of-4 mark from downtown.

It was 'French Heritage Night' at Madison Square Garden, so maybe Ntilikina had some extra juice tonight. He erupted after halftime but it wasn't all good, as he piled up the fouls and added just one assist with three turnovers and zero rebounds, steals or blocks. He's back in the rotation after three DNP-CDs to open December, but there's no reason to touch him in fantasy leagues. He hasn't even recorded a steal since Nov. 18, a span of eight games and 147 minutes.
Dec 9 - 11:01 PM

Kevin Knox started the second half of Sunday's game and finished with 26 points, a career-high 15 rebounds, four 3-pointers and one steal in 41 minutes.

The playing time was also a career-high mark, and he joins LeBron James as the only teenagers in league history to notch 25 & 15 in a game. Inconsistency is still an issue, predictably for a rookie, but in five December games he's averaging 15.6 points, 2.2 triples, 7.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists. He's shooting poorly and there aren't many defensive stats, but there's enough upside here to grab him in deeper leagues.
Dec 9 - 10:59 PM

Courtney Lee had four points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 13 minutes off the bench on Sunday.

The 33-year-old guard missed New York's first 24 games due to neck spasms, and he's averaging a modest 9.7 minutes since his return on Dec. 3. There's no fantasy value here.
Dec 9 - 10:56 PM

Mario Hezonja started Sunday's game but lasted only five minutes, and Kevin Knox assumed the starting SF job after halftime.

Hezonja went scoreless with one rebound and one personal foul, and this basically sums up his time with the Knicks -- short and disappointing. The former No. 5 overall draft pick is averaging fewer points and minutes as a starter for New York, compared to his role off the bench, and he's been ineffective no matter where he begins games. He belongs on the waiver wire.
Dec 9 - 10:53 PM

Enes Kanter had just six points and four rebounds in 18 minutes of action during Sunday's 119-107 loss to the Hornets.

The Knicks trailed 80-52 early in the third quarter tonight and coach David Fizdale turned to his bench early and often. Mitchell Robinson played 19 minutes and had six points, two rebounds and two blocks, and there were more small-ball lineups than usual for New York. Kanter should bounce back vs. Tristan Thompson and the Cavs on Wednesday.
Dec 9 - 10:48 PM

Kemba Walker made 8-of-20 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs to score 25 points on Sunday, adding six rebounds, six assists, four steals and four 3-pointers.

Walker broke out with a 14-point second quarter tonight, and this was his highest-scoring game since Nov. 23 -- he shot a combined 35.1% in the intervening seven games. He also passed Latrell Sprewell and Randy Foye for 79th in all-time 3-pointers made tonight. Next up are David Wesley, Gary Payton, Kevin Martin, Steve Smith and one of Kemba's current teammates -- Nicolas Batum. He'll erupt with a few huge scoring games soon enough, especially since the next five opponents aren't defensive juggernauts -- the Pistons (twice), Knicks, Lakers and Cavaliers.
Dec 9 - 10:47 PM

Tony Parker had 16 points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes vs. the Knicks on Sunday.

The veteran has had extra bounce in his step the past few games. He made 6-of-13 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs tonight, and if you toss out Wednesday's dud vs. the Wolves he's averaging 16.3 points in his past four games. Parker has been very hit-or-miss with the Hornets, though, so there's no reason to own him unless you're handcuffing him to Kemba Walker in deep leagues.
