Lance Thomas    F  Knicks

 

 

Lance Thomas started at SF on Wednesday, making both of his field goals to finish with eight points, four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer. With Tim Hardaway Jr. (leg stress injury) out for at least a few weeks, Thomas is one of the guys who will need to step up. He logged 32 minutes tonight, but even that role isn't a guarantee of fantasy value -- he's in there for defense and rarely fills up the boxscore. Just keep an eye on him.

Thomas will enter the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, Al Iannazone of Newsday Sports reports. The Knicks are set to be without Tim Hardaway (leg) for the foreseeable future and after attempting to use an ineffective Damyean Dotson over the last two contests, Thomas will now get his shot to work with the top unit. Look for Thomas to see an uptick in minutes with the promotion after logging just 17 minutes in each of the last two contests, which should mean a temporary uptick in fantasy value. Dotson heads back to the bench in the corresponding move.

Lance Thomas will start next to Courtney Lee on the wing against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. Damyean Dotson will move to the bench as the Knicks go bigger in this matchup. Dotson could fall out of the rotation or it could be a move to tweak the combinations. Thomas may get a chance to produce, but the matchup isn't great and Kristaps Porzingis will be taking most of the shots.

Thomas tallied eight points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, and two assists in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 115-86 win over the Heat. Thomas saw 20-plus minutes for the third time in 18 appearances this season. His modest averages don't give him much value in most leagues, but every now and then he'll have a decent night.
