Player News - Knicks

Date: Team: Pos:

Baron Davis told Sports Illustrated that he's been working out and is hoping to get a call from a team.

"I'm feeling good, man," Davis said. I'm working out a lot, getting back in basketball shape. At some point, I'm going to get a call and a workout, and I'll show them what I can do. But it feels good to just be able to play again and be back on the court, and now it's just a matter of climbing back up that mountain and proving to people that I can still do it." While the 35-year-old might have the desire to play, it takes two to tango and it would be a surprise to see an NBA team sign him at this point.

Ricky Ledo came off the bench for 12 points, three rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-14 shooting in Wednesday's brutal loss.

The Knicks are so bad that Ledo was one of their leading scorers tonight. He could have a good game or two, but it's hard to imagine him doing enough consistently to be worth owning.
Mar 26 - 12:06 AM

Cleanthony Early returned from an ankle injury and had a team-high 18 points, four rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-12 shooting in 25 minutes on Wednesday.

The Knicks are painful, in all aspects - to watch, to use in fantasy, to watch some more - and Early has really struggled on the season. The points were nice, but he never seems to shoot 50 percent and he's just as likely to give you a three-point game as he is to come through like he did tonight. Then again, maybe the Knicks are ready to wind him up and turn him loose, so it's also possible this was a sign of things to come. Keep a close eye on him on Friday night, and pounce if he does anything.
Mar 26 - 12:04 AM

Shane Larkin hit just 1-of-2 shots for two points and two assists in 30 minutes of Wednesday's blowout loss to the Clippers.

He's getting minutes for the banged up and dreadful Knicks, but he is also dreadful. If you thought Tony Snell didn't do anything with his minutes for the Bulls, take a look at Larkin's game log.
Mar 26 - 12:01 AM

Langston Galloway played through a hand injury suffered on Wednesday night and hit 5-of-13 shots for 11 points, two rebounds and three assists in 40 minutes.

This game was an ugly blowout and Galloway left in the first half with the hand injury, but was able to start the second half. This wasn't his best game, but if his hand is OK, he's worth hanging onto and starting in most formats. He said after the game that he'd be ready for Friday night.
Mar 25 - 11:58 PM

Andrea Bargnani played just 19 minutes and hit 2-of-7 shots for six points and one rebound in Wednesday's predictably ugly loss to the Clippers.

Bargs broke a streak of 12 straight games in double figures and while he generally doesn't do much besides score 16 a night, he at least had blocked five shots in his previous three games coming in. He got into some foul trouble and the Knicks had no reason to use him with the game basically over after the first quarter. He should bounce back soon, but just don't expect him to do much besides score.
Mar 25 - 11:55 PM

Langston Galloway started the second half against the Clippers on Wednesday following a hand injury.

Finally some good news on a chaotic night for injuries. Galloway is worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 25 - 8:33 PM

Langston Galloway (hand) went to the locker room in the first half on Wednesday.

It's one of those nights with injuries all over the place. Galloway has become the best option on the perimeter for the Knicks, so they'll need him back in a hurry. If he's out, Shane Larkin, Cleanthony Early and Ricky Ledo would step up. We'll look for an update on Galloway.
Mar 25 - 8:11 PM

Alexey Shved (ribs) suffered an incomplete fractured rib and will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks.

There is a good chance he is going to be out for the season, which is too bad because he was playing the best basketball of his life. With Shved out, Shane Larkin will start while Langston Galloway will run the offense a lot more for the Knicks. Galloway is worth owning in all standard leagues while Ricky Ledo and Cleanthony Early may also get some of Shved's minutes.
Mar 25 - 6:16 PM

Cleanthony Early (ankle) will play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He has a good chance for minutes tonight with the Knicks missing a few guys on the wing. Early has been awful this season, making 33.8 percent from the field in his 31 games. We'll let you know if he does anything noteworthy tonight.
Mar 25 - 5:24 PM

Travis Wear (back) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

It's his second straight game out of the lineup for the Knicks. He was on track to get some playing time with all the injuries, but there's no word on how long he'll be out. Keep him on the wire.
Mar 25 - 5:22 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (wrist) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Alexey Shved is also out of commission and New York will dress 10 players, opening up extra playing time for Lance Thomas, Langston Galloway, Cleanthony Early, Shane Larkin and Ricky Ledo. Hardaway Jr. is day-to-day and could return as soon as Friday's home game vs. Boston.
Mar 25 - 5:21 PM

Alexey Shved (ribs) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday night and coach Derek Fisher said he is "a ways away" from playing.

He was questionable to play but Knicks writer Ian Begley writes that Shved "will likely be out through the weekend at least," which is not what his fantasy owners wanted to hear. With Shved out, Shane Larkin and Langston Galloway will benefit the most. Galloway has played particularly well and is worth a long look in standard leagues.
Mar 25 - 5:19 PM

Alexey Shved (ribs) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

For what it's worth, Shved is being listed as the probable starter for Wednesday's matchup, but we'll have a better idea of his availability following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's unable to go, Langston Galloway and Shane Larkin would be asked to log heavy minutes for the injury depleted Knicks, with Galloway offering the most upside. Stay tuned.
Mar 24 - 4:58 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

Hardaway Jr. was struggling mightily before going down, averaging just 10.0 points and 1.8 three-pointers on 36.2 percent shooting from the field through six games in March. If he is able to play, owners in deep leagues desperate for some 3-point shooting could give him a look, but he's well off the standard league radar.
