  • Doug McDermott scored 10 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.
    Advice: Revenge game? Before the game, coach Jeff Hornacek said something most wouldn't expect, saying McDermott is one of the best defenders on the Knicks. If you want to go off Synergy's tracking, that does check out with McDermott coming in at 84th percentile in halfcourt defense. His offense hasn't really been there and he's not really worth owning in standard leagues.

  • Doug McDermott scored 23 points Sunday on 9-of-13 shooting as the New York Knicks defeated the Atlanta Hawks 111-107. McDermott pulled down three rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +10 in his 31:04 of playing time. McDermott went 2 of 4 from 3-point range.
    Advice: With Tim Hardaway Jr. sidelined, McDermott has more opportunities to score and he took advantage in this one with a season-high 23 points. McDermoott didn't have any assists, steals or blocks but he hit a season-best nine field goals and scored at least 20 for just the second time this season.

  • Doug McDermott scored a season-high 23 points in 31 minutes on Sunday, making 9-of-13 field goals with two 3-pointers and three rebounds.
    Advice: He also went 3-of-3 at the free throw line, but didn't have any assists, steals or blocks. This was a terrific turn of events if you were somehow playing him tonight, but he's still untouchable in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.

    Advice: Dougie McBuckets still has some game, especially when the Knicks are so shorthanded as the moment. He's not a fantasy option, however.

  • Doug McDermott couldn't get anything to drop during Sunday's loss to the Magic, scoring four points on 1-of-7 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.
    Advice: McDermott could be flirting with minutes in the 30s while Tim Hardaway Jr. (leg) is out, but as you can see, the minutes don't always translate to value for McBuckets. He's worth keeping an eye on in deep leagues, but until he does something noteworthy, this is a situation that most fantasy GMs can watch from the waiver wire.
