The New York Knicks allow more points to small forwards than any other in the NBA. With the massive concerns centered around concussions, Doug McDermott will be 100% after being medically cleared from his concussion. McDermott is a great start in seasonal and daily leagues.
Robin Lopez Headshot

Lopez managed just one point (0-6 FG, 1-2 FT) with one rebound and a blocked shot across 18 minutes in Friday's 117-107 loss against the 76ers.

Added 1:38 am (EST)
Lopez was making his way back from a one-game suspension, but he was terribly rusty. He'll look to bounce back against the Bucks on Sunday afternoon. Milwaukee allows 104.1 points per game.
Bobby Portis Headshot

Portis finished with 17 points (8-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two blocked shots and an assist over 22 minutes in Friday's 117-107 loss against the 76ers.

Added 1:35 am (EST)
Portis was moved to the bench prior to the March 18 game against the Jazz but that has lit a fire under him. He is averaging 15.0 points and 6.8 rebounds over the past four outings. Whether in a starting role or as a reserve he is worth a look in most deeper fantasy leagues.
Jimmy Butler Headshot

Butler finished with 36 points (10-24 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 16-21 FT), 11 assists, seven rebounds and three steals across 42 minutes in Friday's 117-107 loss against the 76ers.

Added 1:30 am (EST)
Occasionally Butler has a stinker, but he usually rebounds rather nicely. Since his five-point outing March 12 he is averaging 25.3 points per game, slightly above his season mark. He also has double-doubles in three straight outings, his longest streak of the season.
Sergio Rodriguez Headshot

Rodriguez posted 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), seven assists, four rebounds and a steal over 22 minutes off the bench in Friday's 117-107 win against the Bulls.

Added 1:26 am (EST)
Rodriguez has been seeing a steady amount of playing time in Philly, but he has just eight total double-digit point totals over his past 24 outings. He is a cheap source of assists for fantasy owners in deeper rotisserie formats, but he isn't dependable in most other categories.
Brandon Ingram Headshot

Ingram will not return to Friday's matchup versus the Timberwolves due to tendinitis in his knee, Mike Trudell of reports.

Added 1:15 am (EST)
The rookie was questionable heading into the game due to a knee issue, and appears to have aggravated it. The severity of the injury is not known at this time. His status for Sunday's tilt against the Trail Blazers is seemingly up in the air until the Lakers provide more information clarity on the matter.
Shawn Long Headshot

Long ended up with 18 points (8-10 FG, 2-3 FT) with seven rebounds, two steals and an assist across 19 minutes off the bench in Friday's 117-107 win against the Bulls.

Added 12:53 am (EST)
Long, an undrafted free agent, recently inked to a partially guaranteed multi-year contract with the team. The former standout at Louisiana-Lafayette has rewarded the team with 15.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game over his past two outings. He is speculative pick-up in deeper fantasy leagues, as the team is likely to give him plenty of minutes down the stretch.
T.J. McConnell Headshot

McConnell posted 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT) with eight assists, five rebounds and three steals over 26 minutes in Friday's 117-107 win against the Bulls.

Added 12:46 am (EST)
While McConnell has been a bit erratic in the scoring department he is a steady source of assists and steals. In fact, McConnell has at least one steals in 22 straight games dating back to Feb. 4. Despite up-and-down offense he remains a must-start across most fantasy formats because of his help across multiple categories.
Dario Saric Headshot

Saric scored 32 points (12-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Friday's 117-107 win against the Bulls.

Added 12:42 am (EST)
The Croatian power forward is easily having his best month of the season, averaging 19.8 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game in 13 outings in March. He also has at least one triple in 12 of those contests. Saric has emerged as a must-start across all fantasy formats with his March Mayhem.
Jon Leuer Headshot

Leuer contributed 16 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal across 28 minutes during a 115-87 loss to the Magic on Friday.

Added 12:38 am (EST)
Leuer led the team in scoring off the bench in the blowout loss, which basically means he excelled in garbage time. Friday's game did mark a good outing for him, as the 16 points marked his highest scoring total since March 1 and the eight rebounds were his highest total since Feb, 23. Leuer is a low-end source of points and rebounds to close out the season.
Ish Smith Headshot

Smith totaled six points (3-7 FG) and three rebounds across 16 minutes during a 115-87 loss to the Magic on Friday.

Added 12:37 am (EST)
Smith got his second consecutive start at point guard but played only 16 minutes as the team got destroyed by Orlando. Reggie Jackson had a better overall game off the bench, as he received a few more minutes in the blowout. Smith's two starts have not resulted in wins for the team, so his days as a starter could be limited with the team battling for a playoff spot.
