Shane Larkin played 44 minutes against the Celtics on Friday during a 96-92 loss with 14 points, one rebound, six assists and one steal.

It's his second 44-minute game in his last three, but it's his first game with double-digit points in his last four. Larkin isn't exactly a per-minute dynamo, but he'll be on the radar if he's logging 44 minutes. He's still not a must-own player or anything, but give him a look if you really need a point guard.

Cleanthony Early scored 12 points with five rebounds, one assist, three steals and one turnover in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

He was 5-of-13 from the field and he's finally starting to get some significant run. Alexey Shved (ribs) is likely out for the season, so Early could have an impact in deeper leagues. Until he starts to make shots, he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 28 - 12:35 AM

Andrea Bargnani scored a game-high 25 points against the Celtics on Friday with seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He played a season high in minutes and matched his season high in scoring. Bargnani was starting to fade before tonight with a six-point game on Wednesday while he only had 1.0 boards per game in his last two. He should still be worth owning in standard leagues even with his inconsistency.
Mar 28 - 12:31 AM

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will be in a walking boot for 10-days.

While Jose would not rule out the possibility of him making a return this season, he admitted that he doesn't like his chances. There's really no reason for Calderon to risk a setback playing for the worst team in basketball, so we don't expect to see him back on the floor this season. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 27 - 7:35 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (wrist) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Celtics, and he's unlikely for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

With Hardaway Jr. and Alexey Shved (ribs) sidelined, Langston Galloway will get all the run he can handle. Ricky Ledo could also enter the rotation, but Galloway is the better play in standard leagues.

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.
