News: Toronto guard Landry Fields (strep throat) was available for Sunday's matchup against the Nets after missing the past two games. However, he did not appear in the 93-87 win, earning a DNP-coach's decision on the box score.
Analysis: Fields may be limited throughout the rest of the regular season for the Raptors. He had played just 14.8 minutes per game over his previous four contests and has minimal Fantasy value, when healthy.
News: Raptors guard Landry Fields was ruled out for Friday's contest against the Bulls due to an illness. Fields has now missed a career-high 30 games this season due to a variety of injuries. He is being listed as day to day, according to the team's official website.
Analysis: Fields first season in Toronto has not gone according to plan as injuries have really derailed the 24-year-old's 2012-13 campaign. He has only started 22 games and scored in double figures three times on the year, which is part of the reason why he is putting up just 4.7 points per game. Fields in under contract with the Raptors next season, but won't have much Fantasy value unless takes on a larger role with the team.
News: Raptors guard Landry Fields was back on the court Wednesday against the Wizards, after missing the team's previous game with an elbow injury. He played 18 minutes off the bench, finishing with three points and three rebounds, in an 88-78 win.
Analysis: Fields is averaging just 4.9 points per game on the season, and can safely be ignored in most Fantasy formats down the stretch, even if healthy.
News: The Raptors report Wednesday that guard Landry Fields will play Wednesday night against the Wizards. Fields missed Monday's game against the Pistons due to a right elbow injury. He then went to Los Angeles for follow-up tests, but he was back Wednesday for shootaround and will play against Washington.
Analysis: Fields has minimal Fantasy value even when healthy. Ignore him in most formats even if he does return as expected against the Wizards.
News: Raptors forward Landry Fields was ruled out for Monday's contest against the Pistons due to a right elbow injury, reports the team's official website. Fields flew back to Los Angeles to have his surgically right elbow looked at after he felt a tingling sensation during Toronto's loss to the Wizards on Sunday night.
Analysis: Fields has been a major bust during his first season with the Raptors as his year has been derailed by injuries and inconsistent production. The 24-year-old is averaging just 4.9 points over his 45 games on the year and has only made two 3-pointers the entire year. At this point in the season, Fields should not be active in any formats no matter if he is healthy or not.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields will spend time working with coach John Townsend this offseason to "rebuild his shooting stroke," reports the National Post. Fields has been awful shooting the basketball in his first season with the Raptors. He's at just under 46 percent from the field for the year and is hitting 14 percent of his threes.
Analysis: Fields averages over eight points per game for his career but has been only able to muster 4.9 points per contest this season for the Raptors. He's a career 48 percent shooter from the field and historically has hit around 33 percent of his 3-point shots. He'll need to improve drastically over the offseason to become a viable Fantasy option next season once again in anything but the deepest of leagues.
News: Raptors guard Landry Fields did not have one of his better offensive games of the season during Friday's contest against the Bobcats. Fields, who entered his latest tilt averaging 4.9 points on the year, was shutout for the fifth time this season in the 92-78 win. He missed on all four of his field-goal attempts and added just one rebound to his stat line, while logging 14 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Fields' first season in Toronto has not gone as planned as injuries have limited him to just 37 games thus far. He has also been reduced to a reserve role over the past few weeks and was averaging just 5.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists over his previous 10 games entering Friday's tilt. At this point in the season, Fields' value lies mostly in daily formats when he has a favorable matchup on tap.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields earned his 19th start of the season but failed to get it going offensively Friday night against the Knicks. Field, who earned to the start to defend Carmelo Anthony, went 2 of 4 shooting from the field and 2 of 2 from the charity stripe. He finished with six points, two rebounds and a steal while logging 23 minutes of game action in a 100-98 victory.
Analysis: Fields could not get the job done defensively neither as Anthony lit up the Raptors for 32 points on the night. The 24-year-old has been in and out of the lineup all season long as has been way to inconsistent for Fantasy owners to trust. He is averaging 4.9 points and 4.8 rebounds per game this season and should be left for the deepest of Fantasy formats moving forward.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields received a DNP-CD on Tuesday as the Raptors opened the second half of the season with a win at Washington. Fields did not get into the game.
Analysis: The 24-year-old Fields is averaging just 4.7 points per game over his previous 10 contests. He's falling out of the rotation and without significant minutes has almost zero Fantasy value.
News: After missing the previous three games due to a back injury, Raptors forward Landry Fields was back in action Sunday night against the Hornets. He played 18 minutes off the bench and scored four points on 2-of-3 shooting. Fields also posted two rebounds and an assist in the 102-89 win.
Analysis: Fields was seeing some decent playing time before going down with the injury. His production has tailed off since the arrival of Rudy Gay to the team, however, and the 24-year-old has been limited to single-digits in points over the past seven games played. Consider him a marginal option in the majority of Fantasy formats at this point.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields is expected to be available for Sunday's game against New Orleans after combating a back issue over the past week, NBA.com reports. Fields missed the past three games for the Raptors as a result of lingering back spasms.
Analysis: Fields was able to participate during Saturday's practice so it appears his back issue is behind him. However, his production has tailed off since the arrival of Rudy Gay to the team and the 24-year-old has been limited to single-digits in points over the past six games played. Consider him a marginal option in the majority of Fantasy formats at this point as his spot in the starting lineup could also be tenuous.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields (back spasms) returned to the practice court on Saturday, reports the team. Fields' status for Sunday's game against New Orleans remains in doubt, however.
Analysis: Fields is getting closer to being considered day to day but we still expect him to miss Sunday's game against the Hornets. He should be fine shortly after that, though, perhaps Tuesday against Denver. Fields' Fantasy value has taken a hit since the arrival of Rudy Gay. It's not like he has a major Fantasy player before that, but obviously he will see less playing time now that Gay is on the roster. Fields continues to have marginal Fantasy appeal.
News: The National Post reports Raptors coach Dwane Casey said guard Landry Fields isn't close to returning from back spasms. "He's going to be out for a while," Casey said.
Analysis: Fields' Fantasy value has taken a hit since the arrival of Rudy Gay. It's not like he has a major Fantasy player before that, but obviously he will see less playing time now that Gay is on the roster. Fields continues to have marginal Fantasy appeal.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields was ruled out for Wednesday's game against Boston as he continues to deal with a back issue. Fields was unable to practice Tuesday and will be sidelined for the second straight game while dealing with back spasms. He is considered day to day.
Analysis: Despite averaging less than 5.5 points per game for most of the season, Fields has remained in the starting lineup for the Raptors. However, that run could be halted following the team's acquisition of Rudy Gay, who assumed his spot in the starting five for Monday's game against Miami. Fields is connecting on just 43.1 percent of his attempts this season and holds low-end Fantasy value even when he is healthy.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields missed Sunday's game versus Miami due to back spasms, reports the team's official site. Fields is day to day for the Raptors.
Analysis: Fields has played 15 or fewer minutes in three straight games. He's struggling to score and doing little that would make Fantasy owners trust his usage. Plus, he's injured now and dealing with back spasms. Fields can be left on benches in most Fantasy formats.
News: After leaving the previous contest due to an illness, Raptors forward Landry Fields was able to play Wednesday night against the Hawks. He scored three points on 1-of-5 shooting in the 93-92 loss. He also went 1 for 2 from the foul line. Fields posted four rebounds and two assists while playing 15 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Fields has scored in double figures just twice so far this season and has struggled with his shot of late. He is averaging just four points with 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in the previous five contests on 39 percent shooting. Continue to view Fields as a low-end option in deeper Fantasy formats at this point.
News: Raptors guard Landry Fields was forced to leave Monday's contest against the Warriors due to flu-like symptoms. Fields, who was dealing with his illness prior to tippff, finished with two points and two rebounds while logging 13 minutes of game action. He is being listed as day to day.
Analysis: Fields was unable to shake his symptoms once the game started, so the Raptors decided to pull him out as a precaution. The 24-year-old has been much more efficient since he returned from an elbow injury and is averaging 7.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals over his last five games. Fields can be considered a viable low-end option in deeper Rotisserie formats when healthy.
News: Raptors guard Landry Fields was able to play Saturday night against the Cavaliers despite dealing with flu-like symptoms. Fields was held in check throughout most of the night and finished with just four points on 1 of 3 shooting in a 99-98 defeat. He also chipped in with five rebounds and three assists while logging 22 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Fields has logged roughly 25 minutes of game action this season but is a marginal contributor in Fantasy, even when healthy. He is averaging 5.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game this season while shooting 40.7 percent from the field. Fantasy owners should view him as a low-end option heading into Week 14 (Jan. 28-Feb. 3).
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields is expected to play Saturday night against the Cavaliers despite dealing with flu-like symptoms. Fields is averaging 6.4 points and 5.4 rebounds over his last five games and has yet to miss a game with the flu this season.
Analysis: Fields has logged roughly 25 minutes of game action this season but is a marginal contributor in Fantasy, even when healthy. He is averaging 5.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game this season while shooting 42.7 percent from the field. Consider him a low-end Fantasy option for now.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields had a big game to lead the Raptors to a home win over the Lakers Sunday. Fields scored 18 points as a starter as he shot 8 for 11 from the field over 38 minutes. He grabbed 10 rebounds to record the double-double and chipped in with four steals for the Raptors in the game.
Analysis: Fields is averaging just 4.2 points per game on the season and has not equaled 18 points in his previous four games combined. He can rebound for a guard, but isn't going to score consistently at any point. He has value only in deeper Fantasy formats.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields started and played 29 minutes on Sunday during a loss to Milwaukee. Fields took five shots in the game and hit just one of them to score three points. He was 1 of 2 from the free throw line. Fields grabbed just one rebound and dished out two assists.
Analysis: Fields has become a starter for the Raptors but he contributes more defensively than he does on the offensive end. He's recorded double figures in rebounds in two of his last three games, but showed Sunday that won't be consistent. Fields really only has low-end Fantasy value in most formats at this time.
News: Raptors guard Landry Fields was back in the starting lineup Wednesday, and he played a big role in a win over the 76ers. Fields scored 10 points on 5 of 10 shooting, while playing a team-high 42 minutes. He added 11 rebounds and three steals, in a 90-72 win.
Analysis: Fields has been back in the rotation in recent games, but this was the biggest role he has had at any point this season. His previous high in minutes played was 24, but he provided energy on defense and on the glass that proved critical. His scoring touch is largely gone, and has been since his rookie season, but Fields is finding other ways to contribute. The 24-year-old is averaging 6.2 points and 7.0 rebounds per game over the last five, but remains just a low-end Fantasy option going forward.
News: Raptors coach Dwane Casey told the National Post on Monday that Landry Fields could see time at the power forward spot with Andrea Bargnani and Jonas Valanciunas dealing with injuries. Fields played 21 minutes at that position Saturday and scored six points with nine rebounds. His rotations are totally different, Casey said of Fields playing in the frontcourt. Thats what we worked on [Monday in practice]. Hes done a good job of working. I think he sees that Terrence Ross is playing well, DeMar [DeRozan] is playing well, Alan is playing well. For [him] to get on the floor that position is a place where we will need spells.
Analysis: Fields is averaging just 2.9 points in seven games this season and missed six weeks because of a nerve injury that affected stability in his wrist. It looks as though his role is about to improve, however, so keep an eye on how the 24-year-old does. Fields has seen his production go down since his solid rookie campaign and remains more of a low-end option in deeper Fantasy formats at this point.
News: Raptors guard Landry Fields was active for Wednesday's contest against the Pistons but did not see the floor in the 97-91 win. Fields was also active for Toronto's win over the Cavaliers Tuesday night but earned a DNP-coach's decision in that contest as well.
Analysis: Fields had not suited up for a game since Nov. 7 due to an elbow injury but was active for the first time since then Tuesday night. However, he has yet to see the court so it remains uncertain if he is still not ready to play yet or has lost his spot in the team's rotation. Either way, Fields clearly doesn't have much Fantasy value right now and should only be owned in deeper formats.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields was expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's game at Cleveland after being sidelined since early November with a troublesome elbow issue, the team's radio analyst reported. Unfortunately, Fields never got off the bench due to a coach's decision. Fields, in his first season with the Raptors, has missed the past 21 games after having surgery to repair a nerve in his right elbow on Nov. 14. He should be considered day to day for now.
Analysis: Fields has not suited up for a game since Nov. 7 -- the team's fifth game of the season -- and is scheduled to be eased back into action. Toronto coach Dwane Casey said his minutes will be limited at first as he likes the current rotation of Terrence Ross and Alan Anderson. Fields is connecting on a career-low 20.8 percent from the field and is not considered a worthwhile Fantasy option outside of deeper formats for now.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields had the sutures removed from his injured elbow Monday, reports the team's PR staff Tuesday. Fields, however, still has no timetable to return to action for the Raptors. He's expected to be re-evaluated in two weeks' time.
Analysis: Fields seems like he's going to be out until at least the middle of December at this point if he's first going to be evaluated in two weeks. Fields usually averages a little more than 20 minutes per game when healthy, but he is averaging just 2.4 points per game in his first season with the Raptors and wasn't helping out Fantasy owners much before getting hurt. Only stash Fields in the deepest of Fantasy formats.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields was able to participate in shooting drills Saturday, reports the team's official site. Fields is recovering from an elbow injury and still has no official timetable to return.
Analysis: Fields usually averages a little more than 20 minutes per game when healthy, but he is averaging just 2.4 points per game in his first season with the Raptors and wasn't helping out Fantasy owners much before getting hurt. Only stash Fields in the deepest of Fantasy formats.
News: The Raptors announced Thursday forward Landry Fields underwent ulnar nerve transposition surgery Wednesday to address compression/entrapment in his right elbow. There is no timetable for Fields' return to basketball activities and he will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Analysis: Fields usually averages a little more than 20 minutes per game when healthy, but he is averaging just 2.4 points per game in his first season with the Raptors and wasn't helping out Fantasy owners much before getting hurt. Only stash Fields in the deepest of Fantasy formats.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields (hand, wrist) joined guard Kyle Lowry on a trip to New York City in order to visit doctors set up by the Raptors, reports the Toronto Star Tuesday. Fields missed Tuesday's game at Indiana due to leaving the team. Fields has missed three straight outings.
Analysis: Fields is averaging just 2.4 points per game this season for the Raptors and has low-end Fantasy value at the moment. He's not hitting his shots and that really zaps his value as he's known as a bit of a sharpshooter. He should only be on benches in deeper formats as he works his way through this issue.
News: The Raptors were without a trio of players, including two starters, during Monday's game against Utah, according to the team's official website. Toronto was missing guards Kyle Lowry (right ankle sprain) and Landry Fields (right hand, wrist), and forward Alan Anderson (left foot sprain). Fields, who is averaging a paltry 2.4 points per game this season, has now missed the past two outings with the issue.
Analysis: Fields has been a disappointment for the Raptors after the first three weeks of the season as he has struggled to develop a rhythm with his new team and is averaging a lowly 20.8 percent from the field. He has also missed all three of attempts from beyond the arc as his distinction as a sharp-shooter continues to fade. Fantasy owners shouldn't rely on him outside of deeper formats, especially as he misses time with an injury.
News: Toronto guard Landry Fields will miss Saturday's game against Philadelphia, reports TSN Canada. Fields visited a hand specialist Friday and is experiencing "sensitivity" in his right hand. Fields is day to day for the Raptors.
Analysis: Fields is seeing a tick over 20 minutes per game after his first five contests. He's averaging just 2.4 points and 1.6 assists per game with 3.2 rebounds. Fields has low-end Fantasy value for the time being, when healthy.
News: Just three games into the season, Raptors guard Landry Fields has already drawn minor criticism from his coach. Fields, the team's top offseason acquisition when he signed a three-year $19 million offer sheet, has totaled just seven points in his first three outings since coming over from the Knicks. "(Hes) still picking up the system and were not putting a lot of credence into (his start)," coach Dwane Casey told the Toronto Star. "We knew he wasnt going to be a 15- or 20-point-a-night guy but the type of things he does that are very effective as far as running the floor, cutting without the basketball -- we have to get more of that from him."
Analysis: Casey can try and spin Fields' intangibles as much as he wants, but his lackluster production just won't cut it, especially as a starter. Fields is averaging just over 22 minutes per game, but has gone a freezing 3 for 14 from the field (21.4 percent) and missed his lone 3-point attempt, which came in the opener. "We probably need a few more points from him but just get him in transition, running the floor and a bit more cutting," Casey said. Fantasy owners should have been skeptical to rely on him much before the season and his slow start confirms that he should remain on the bench only in deeper formats for now.
News: Raptors guard Landry Fields poured in just 6.6 points per game on a measly 40.4 percent shooting clip from the field during the preseason. However, he is expected to open the season as the starting shooting guard in his first season with Toronto, according to the National Post. He finished also finished 1 for 8 from long range and posted single-digits in points during six of the seven exhibition games he played.
Analysis: Part of the reason for Fields' inclusion in the starting lineup is his contract as the Raptors are locked into a three-year, $20 million with the former Stanford standout. But he took a gigantic step backward last year after a promising rookie campaign and connected on just 25.6 percent of his 3-point attempts. Fields should be able to improve on his average of 1.8 attempts per game from downtown as Toronto doesn't boast many outside scoring threats. Fantasy owners should consider him a reserve option in deeper formats at the start.
News: The Knicks declined to match the three-year, $20 million offer sheet the Raptors tendered to restricted free agent guard Landry Fields Saturday, freeing him to join Toronto.
Analysis: Fields was a disappointment last season, as he averaged 8.8 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, both of which were worse than his rookie season. Worse than that, his shooting fell off completely, as he hit just 25.6 percent of his attempts from three-point range, after nailing 39.3 percent as a rookie. The Raptors are hoping that he will fall somewhere between the two totals, at the vey least, however Fantasy owners should probably avoid targeting him as a starter on Draft Day, leaving Fields for the later rounds as a reserve in most formats.
News: New York guard Landry Fields started off hot on Tuesday night in an eventual loss to the Pacers. Fields shot 5 of 8 from the field on Tuesday night over 23 minutes to score 15 points for the Knicks. Fields went 2 for 3 from 3-point range in the game and added four rebounds, two assists and two steals. Fields also blocked a shot.
Analysis: Fields had scored just two more points than Tuesday's total in his previous three games combined. He is a streaky shooter and sometimes he doesn't even shoot at all. New York could use more scoring out of him with Amar'e Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin both out, but we still think Fields is just a low-end Fantasy option despite starting for the Knicks.
News: New York guard Landry Fields contributed in Wednesday's win over Orlando. Fields played 28 minutes as a starter and scored six points on 3 of 6 from the field. He grabbed three rebounds and added two assists and a steal for the Knicks.
Analysis: Fields is a cog in the New York system but he doesn't get asked to do much scoring. Not a great shooter, Fields is putting up minimal numbers across the board. Despite starting for New York, Fields is a low-end Fantasy option in most formats.
News: Knicks guard Landry Fields found playing time very hard to come by on Wednesday against the 76ers, as he played just 18 minutes in the Knicks 82-79 win. The team went with J.R. Smith extensively in a search for offense, and Fields found himself sitting late in the game. He finished the game with eight points on 3 of 3 shooting with two rebounds.
Analysis: Fields has definitely seen his minutes take a big hit recently, as his playing time is down to 25.4 minutes per game in the month of March. Fields has, at times, been a useful Fantasy option, however with his current role on the team, it is hard to rely on him in all but the deepest of Fantasy leagues, as he is averaging only 8.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in the month of March.
News: New York guard Landry Fields made a nice contribution on Monday night during a loss to the Bulls. Fields shot 5 of 11 from the field over 28 minutes to score 12 points for New York. He added four rebounds, three assists, one steal and a block in the game. Fields missed the only 3-point shot he attempted.
Analysis: Fields has scored in double figures in three straight games, good news considering he's averaging just under 10 points per game on the year. Fields is contributing across the board right now and his numbers can be utilized in deeper Fantasy formats.
News: The New York Post reports that Knicks coach Mike DAntoni said the battle at the shooting-guard position is on, but the coach wants to stick with starter Landry Fields for now. Fields minutes could be coming down because rookie Iman Shumpert is healthy. DAntoni said hes not looking at a lineup change yet. Fields is Jeremy Lins best friend and their on-court chemistry had been perfect. Landrys our starter for right now and that might be forever, DAntoni said. Thats who we are right now.
Analysis: Fields has played well at times for the Knicks, and hopefully the recent pressure from Shumpert as well as J.R. Smith will motivate him going forward. Keep an eye on what happens with Fields, but he remains a decent starting option in deeper leagues and a good reserve in most standard formats.
News: New York guard Landry Fields displayed more talent singing than he did on the basketball court on Wednesday against Cleveland. Fields was able to serenade reporters with his rendition of Bruno Mars' "Billionaire" pre-game, but when the lights came on he struggled. Fields shot just 1 of 6 from the field over 20 minutes to score two points as New York beat the Cavs. Fields added three assists, one rebound and a steal.
Analysis: Fields was off on Wednesday and has scored just 10 points in his last two games. He was scoring at a better level before the All-Star break, but isn't going to give Fantasy owners much more than 10 points per game. Despite his role as a starter with New York, Fields is more of a low-end Fantasy option at the moment.
News: Knicks guard Landry Fields was able to notch his second double-double of the season during Monday night's contest against the Nets. Fields finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds in the 100-92 defeat, on 5 of 10 shooting from the field. He missed both of his attempts from downtown and also added one assist and one rebound to his stat line, while logging 31 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Fields has been playing very well since Jeremy Lin entered the starting lineup and that trend continued on Monday. The 23-year-old is averaging 10 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.0 steal over his last five contests and is shooting 45 percent from the field over that stretch. While owners would love to see some more consistency out of the former University of Standford product, owners should make sure to leave him active while he is playing well.
News: Knicks guard Landry Fields didn't make it into double digits in statistical category, but he managed a nice all-around performance. He scored eight points on a 3-for-9 shooting display. Fields hit one 3-pointer and one foul shot as well. He also chipped in seven assists and seven rebounds in his 37 minutes of action. New York would rally to beat Toronto, 90-87.
Analysis: Fields has scored in double figures in two of his last five games, but when his number is called he seems to produce. He's averaging 11.0 pints, 3.4 assists and 5.6 boards per outing over that span. Fields still has to show more consistency before he's considered a high-end Fantasy option, but he has plenty of upside. For now, Fantasy owners should view him as a low-end guard option.
News: After two-straight games of scoring just six points, Knicks G Landry Fields returned to double figures with his 16-point performance on Wednesday against the Wizards. He hit 6 of 11 shots from the field in the game and grabbed a season-high eight rebounds, just missing his first double-double of the season in the Knicks 107-93 win over Washington.
Analysis: Fields has proven to be a disappointment in his second season; while his scoring is the same, his overall game has taken a step back as the Knicks have struggled all year. Fields solid all-around play made him a much more valuable Fantasy option as a rookie, so hell need to get back to filling up the stat sheet, and Wednesday was a step in the right direction. At this point, consider him a low-end Fantasy option with upside.
News: New York SG Landry Fields had a nice scoring night on Tuesday in a win over Detroit. Fields went 7 of 10 from the field over 31 minutes and hit four 3-pointers to score 18 points for the Knicks. He added five rebounds and three assists and also had five steals in the performance with a blocked shot. It was a far cry from Saturday's game at Houston when he failed to score or do much else over 18 minutes.
Analysis: Fields entered Tuesday having shot 4 for 14 in his previous two games. He's been a very inconsistent player this season and is averaging just 9.2 points per game. He's been scoring better of late, clearly showing an ability to knock down shots from deep. Still, unless he plays more consistently, Fields' value will remain limited to the deeper Fantasy formats.
News: New York G Landry Fields was held scoreless for the first time this season during the Knicks' 97-84 loss at Houston on Saturday night. Fields missed both of his attempts from the field while matching a season-low 18 minutes of playing time. He added three rebounds and one assist.
Analysis: Fields' off-night was not attributed to an injury, but he could be hobbled by an undisclosed issue. He entered Saturday's game averaging 31.6 minutes per game and had reached double-digits in points in each of his past six contests. However, Fields could not find a rhythm against the Rockets as he was held without a point for the first time since Dec. 30, 2010. Fantasy owners should monitor his status and consider benching him while he regains his scoring touch.
News: Knicks F Landry Fields turned in another solid performance during Tuesday night's contest against the Bobcats. Fields finished with 18 points in the 111-78 victory, on 6 of 12 shooting from the field. He went 5 of 6 at the free-throw line and also chipped in with five assists, four rebounds, two blocks and two steals, while logging 30 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: After getting off to a very slow start this season, Fields has really turned it on of late. He has scored in double figures in four straight contests and is averaging 13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists over that stretch. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on how he fares during the rest of the scoring period to see if his recent spike in production is a fluke, or if Fields has finally figured some things out.
News: New York SG Landry Fields was finally back in double figures in scoring on Wednesday night during a loss to the Suns. With Carmelo Anthony only managing 12 points in the game, Fields dropped 17 on 6 of 12 shooting over 34 minutes. Fields scored in double digits for the first time in January. He still went 0 for 4 from 3-point range, but did hit five free throws. Fields added six rebounds, four assists and two steals in the loss for New York.
Analysis: Fields finally scored in double digits after having been held under that plateau in every single game played in January to this point. He's a solid rebounding guard, but until his scoring becomes more consistent once again, he'll only have low-end Fantasy value.
News: New York SG Landry Fields started on Wednesday in a win over Philadelphia. That said, once again Fields was limited in his Fantasy production. Fields shot 2 of 5 from the field and scored just four points over 35 minutes. Fields added three rebounds, two assists and three steals in the win for New York.
Analysis: Fields' scoring average has really dipped this season for New York. The only statistic that sets him apart as far as Fantasy value is steals. He's decent in steals but does little else that would make Fantasy owners consider his usage. Fields only has value in the deeper formats.
News: Knicks G Landry Fields has been dealing with a sprained thumb that has limited his production recently, according to the New York Post. Fields has netted only 12 points over his past three games and is averaging just 8.4 points per game during his second NBA season.
Analysis: Fields hasn't been able to replicate his impressive rookie campaign during the early part of the season and has topped double-digits just twice in seven outings. He could start to lose playing time -- and even a spot in the starting lineup -- to rookie G Iman Shumpert if he continues to struggle. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on his status with the injury while considering him a low-end Fantasy option in most formats for now.
News: New York guard Landry Fields started and played 25 minutes on Wednesday night in a loss to Charlotte. That said, Fields was out-played by Iman Shumpert, who made his return for the first time since the opener. Fields shot 2 for 5 from the field and scored five points with five rebounds and two assists.
Analysis: Shumpert looks like he might grab away some of Fields' playing time as the youngster looked very exciting on Wednesday. Still, Fields has proven himself valuable for coach Mike D'Antoni. He's never been much of a Fantasy option and remains a low-end option in 12-team formats.
News: Knicks G Landry Fields was the only Knicks starting to attempt at least 10 shots and make half of them, as they fell to the Warriors 92-78 on Wednesday. Fields scored 14 points on five-of-10 shooting, while adding a three-pointer and three free throws. He also had two rebounds, three assists, and three steals in the game.
Analysis: Fields started strong last season, and he is seeing a similar start to the 2011-12 season. Despite that, he is averaging just 10.5 points through two games, not much better than his average last season. He is worth no more than a bench role for Fantasy owners.
News: Knicks G Landry Fields, one of the 2010-11 seasons most pleasant surprises, struggled in two preseason games against the Nets. He combined to go four of 18 from the field in the two games. He averaged six points per game in the preseason.
Analysis: Fields struggled after the All-Star break last year, as his scoring fell a full point to 9.1 per-game and his rebounds fell to 4.8 per. That, combined with his preseason play in the new offense has to give Fantasy owners pause when considering him on Draft Day. He is worth no more than a late-rounds selection on Draft Day, and could end up being without Fantasy value as the season goes on if his struggles continue.
News: New York coach Mike D'Antoni said Monday that second-year G Landry Fields will begin the upcoming season in the starting lineup. Fields finished with 9.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game last season, but struggled down the stretch. "We expect a big year out of him," D'Antoni said.
Analysis: D'Antoni's decision comes after reports during the offseason stated he would come off the bench for the Knicks this year. However, it appears he has changed him mind after Fields connected on nearly 50 percent of his field-goal attempts last season (49.7). Fields also played in all 82 games for New York last season and added 1.9 assists per game. Consider him a late-round selection in most 2011-12 Fantasy drafts.
News: The New York Post reports the Knicks could be in the market for an upgrade at shooting guard over Landry Fields for the 2011-12 season. The report says the Knicks "dont feel Landry Fields is a starting shooting guard on a playoff power."
Analysis: Fields played well as a rookie last year. He played in all 82 of New York's games and averaged 9.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steal in those contests. Keep an eye on what the Knicks do this offseason, but if Fields remains a starter or a significant part of the rotation then he would be worth drafting with a late-round pick.
News:Landry Fields' rookie season officially came to an end as the Celtics completed a four-game sweep over the Knicks with a 101-89 win on Sunday. Fields finished with just one point in the contest while logging 14 minutes. Despite his postseason struggles, Fields enjoyed a relatively productive rookie campaign. He played in all 82 of New York's games this season averaged 9.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steal in those contests. His best game of the season came back in February when Fields notched 25 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Fields was one of the biggest surprises of last year's Draft as he stepped right in started 81 games this year at guard for the Knicks. He instantly begin to produce as he averaged 10.8 points 7.1 rebounds over the first two months of the season. However, Fields did begin to falter a bit down the stretch and averaged only 6.9 points per contest over the final 13 games of the season. He also struggled mightily in the playoffs, failing to score in double figures in any of the Knicks four postseason games. Maybe the rookie ran out of gas over the final six weeks or so of the season but Fantasy owners have to be thrilled with his overall body of work. The future looks very bright for the 22-year-old, who figures to be a big part of the Knicks future. His ability to fill up a stat sheet on most nights might give him a bit more value in category-based formats, although Fields was productive enough to warrant starting in most Fantasy formats. Consider him a solid mid-to-late round selection on Draft day next season.
News: Knicks rookie forward Landry Fields turned in another very pedestrian performance in Sunday's 100-95 loss to the Bucks. Fields finished with 13 points in the defeat on 5 of 11 shooting from the field. He went 3 of 6 from downtown and also chipped in with five rebounds while logging 21 minutes if game action. Fields is averaging 10.4 points and 4.0 rebounds over his last five contests.
Analysis: Ever since Fields dropped 19 on a Mavericks a few games back he has seemed to hit a bit of a wall. He has scored in double figures just three times since then and is only averaging 24.2 minutes over his last five contest. That is about 10 minutes less than his season averages, despite the fact he remains a starter. Still, Fantasy owners have to be more than pleased with the rookies entire body of work thus far. Continue to view the 22-year-old as a solid low-end Fantasy option heading into Week 22 (March 21-27).
News: Though New York forward Landry Fields averages 10.1 points per game on the year, he's scored at least 15 points in four of the last five games including Thursday's loss to the Mavericks. Fields scored 19 points on solid 6 of 9 shooting from the floor, including 1 of 3 from beyond the arc. He pulled down six rebounds on the night, along with a career-high four steals on the defensive end. Fields turned the ball over just once, while balancing it out with an assist during his 31 minutes of playing time.
Analysis: Fields numbers may be a bit inflated from Thursday with the game out of hand for the entire second half, but he's put in 14.6 points per game on average in his last five outings. He continues to take shots only when they are there, shooting at an astounding 51.6 percent rate from the floor and 40.8 percent from long-range. Fields has seen an increase in production since the Carmelo Anthony deal, though his role has remained the same for the most part. Fantasy owners should trust the rookie standout as a low-end option in the majority of formats moving forward.
News: The New York Post reports that the Knicks are likely to continue to start Landry Fields at shooting guard in the wake of Sunday's agreed-upon deal with the Nuggets and Timberwolves that will bring Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks.
Analysis: Fields has started all 54 games this season, averaging 10.1 points. His shot volume could increase from 7.4 per game as the team lost key perimeter players like Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler in the deal. Anthony will be more than enough to take a good chunk of that, but there should be a few more looks per game for Fields, who is a solid rebounder for a guard and could become much more viable if his scoring increases.
News: New York forward Landry Fields scored 14 points -- nine coming on 3-pointers in the fourth quarter -- in the Knicks' 105-95 victory over New Jersey on Saturday night. Fields finished 3 of 4 from 3-point range and his final trey from the corner put New York up 99-91 with 48 seconds remaining in the game. The rookie from Stanford connected on 5 of 7 shot attempts overall as he logged 40 minutes for the first time in his last six games. Fields also contributed five assists and four rebounds as the Knicks halted a six-game losing skid on the road.
Analysis: Fields' clutch performance overshadowed a tough two-game stretch where he averaged just five points. He has been struggling overall since the calendar flipped to February and is posting just 9.7 points this month -- just below his season average of 10. Aside from a dazzling 25-point performance against Philadelphia on Feb. 6, Fields has not drained more than five shots in his last six outings. With inconsistency still hindering his productions, he should only be viewed as low-end Fantasy option in the majority of Fantasy formats.
News: Knicks F Landry Fields had his most productive game in some time on Sunday against the Sixers. He shot 10 of 13 from the field, resulting in 25 points. He also added 10 rebounds, two steals and an assist in 38 minutes. Fields had scored just nine points combined over his last two games and 19 combined over his last three.
Analysis: Fields had the hot hand against the Sixers and that bought him more shot attempts than he has been seeing in the team's offense. He shot 5 of 7 from beyond the arc, leading to his inflated box score total. He has averaged 9.9 points as a rookie and has been very inconsistent offensively. However, he does tend to take high-percentage shots and is shooting at over a 50-percent from the field. Consider Fields a viable low-end play because of the playing time he sees on a regular basis for a potent Knicks team and the fact he can get you around seven boards and a steal per game.
News: New York forward Landry Fields had four points and nine rebounds in the Knicks' 113-97 loss to Dallas on Wednesday night. Fields struggled from the field and made only 2 of his 11 shot attempts. He also missed all four of his 3-point attempts, the 12th time this season he has been held scoreless from long range when attempting two-plus shots. Field added a steal in 31 minutes of playing time but was held without an assist for the first time in four games.
Analysis: Fields has been struggling with his shot recently and is now 2 for 11 from 3-point range in his last three games. The normally reliable shooter, who is boasting a stellar 52.3 shooting percentage in his rookie season, has not reached 35 percent in his last two games. His 18.2-percent clip in Wednesday's game was his fourth outing below 20 percent and the worst since being held scoreless on Dec. 30 against Orlando. Consider him a mid-range option in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
News: New York forward Landry Fields recorded 19 points and 13 rebounds in the Knicks' 93-88 victory over Miami on Thursday night. Fields sank 6 of 11 from the field, including 3 of 6 from 3-point range, to finish with his highest point total since Nov. 16 against Denver (21). It was also the 10th double-double of the season for the rookie from Stanford. Fields, who was the Eastern Conference rookie of the month in November, was also 4 for 4 from the free-throw line -- the 17th perfect outing from the stripe this season. He also matched a season high with six assists.
Analysis: Fields rebounded nicely from several sub-par games and managed the second game in double digits in his last five outings. He has been struggling a bit from 3-point range and Thursday was his first game averaging better than 50 percent from long-range in his last three games. He remains a strong shooter (52 percent) and leads all Eastern Conference rookies with 7.1 rebounds per game. Fields, whose name is also mentioned in trade rumors, should be considered a mid-range option in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
News: New York Landry Fields netted just two points in the Knicks' 101-92 loss at San Antonio on Friday night. Fields managed just three shots and finished 1 of 3 while not attempting a 3-pointer for the second time this season and first since the sixth game of the season. He added three rebounds and three assists for New York, which lost for the sixth time in seven games.
Analysis: Another poor shooting performance certainly won't boost Fields' trade value. Fields, whose name has been continuously rumored in a possible trade for Denver forward Carmelo Anthony, finished with less than 10 points for the fifth time in his last six games. The rookie remains a strong shooter -- 51.8 percent for the season -- but has not attempted more than nine shots in his last six games. Consider him a mid-range option in most Fantasy leagues.
News: Knicks F Landry Fields was back in double figures on Monday against the Rockets, scoring 11 points on 4 of 7 shooting. He had been held below 10 points in three straight games coming in.
Analysis: Fields is not asked to carry a big offensive load on a team with plenty of scorers, but the shot volume in games like Monday's 129-121 loss can trickle down to him here and there. Fields is a good rebounder, averaging 7.2 over his last five games and can be a good option in category leagues for steals as well.
News: New York forward Landry Fields posted 12 points and eight rebounds in the Knicks' 109-87 loss to the Lakers on Sunday night. Fields connected on 5 of 10 from the field, including 2 of 4 from 3-point range, to record 50 percent of his shots for the fourth consecutive games. The rookie added two steals and two assists in 39 minutes as New York's three-game winning streak ended.
Analysis: Fields continues to be one of the Knicks' best shooters and is now averaging 61.3 percent from the field in his last four games. He has drained 19 of 31 shots in that span, which includes a perfect 6 for 6 effort in his previous game against Phoenix on Jan. 7. The first-year player from Stanford has developed a nice consistency lately and is now averaging 10.2 points and 7.4 rebounds this season. Consider him as a mid-range Fantasy option in most leagues.
News: The Knicks lost Danilo Gallinari for 2-3 weeks and Landry Fields could see a boost with the forward out. Fields scored 10 points with five rebounds in his last game on Sunday against Indiana in just 13 minutes but came back for 40 minutes on Tuesday against the Spurs in a win. He shot 5 for 10 and scored 13 points with six rebounds, three assists and three steals.
Analysis: Fields was passed over for playing time on Sunday by Bill Walker and Toney Douglas, but went right back to getting the bulk of the minutes with Gallinari out. He'd been playing exceptionally well earlier and even had back-to-back double-doubles on Dec. 22 and 25 against the Thunder and Bulls. Fields could see a nice boost in value going forward until Gallinari is able to return. It is definitely a situation worth monitoring.
News: New York rookie forward Landry Fields was shut out for the first time in his career on Thursday night in Orlando. He missed all three of his shots from the field in his 28 minutes of court time. Fields did have four rebounds and two assists for the Knicks, but wouldn't contribute much else in their 112-103 loss to the Magic.
Analysis: After recording two straight double-doubles, Fields has now had a total of three points combined in his last two outings. Over his last five games Fields is averaging 8.4 points, 2.2 assists and 7.6 boards per contest. Despite his recent dip in points, Fields still does enough to be considered an option in deeper Fantasy leagues.
News: The Knicks took down Chicago in New York on Christmas day and it was rookie Landry Fields who led the team in rebounds. The small forward scored 14 points on 5 of 7 shooting with two 3-pointers and added a team-high 11 rebounds for the double-double. He added three assists and a block as the Knicks won 103-95.
Analysis: Fields has recorded two consecutive double-doubles and is averaging 10 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and over a 3-pointer per game over his last five. He's quickly becoming one of the top rookies in the NBA and is also quickly becoming viable to see starts in deeper Fantasy leagues.
News: Knicks forward Landry Fields recorded his seventh double-double of the year on Wednesday night as New York beat Oklahoma City, 112-98. Fields shot 5 for 8 from the field -- going 2 for 3 from behind the 3-point arc -- and hitting both his foul shots. He finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Fields would add three assists, two steals and a block for the Knicks.
Analysis: Fields contributes in a lot of ways for the Knicks, which translates well into Fantasy leagues. Over his last five contests, he's averaging 10.8 points, 7.2 boards, 2.6 assists and 1.8 steals per game. He started the year as a relative unknown in Fantasy leagues being owned in just 27 percent. Now he's owned in the 80 percent range, which makes him worth using in deeper category-based Fantasy formats.
News: After scoring just 11 combined points in his last two outings, Knicks F Landry Fields was able to get back in double digits on Saturday night against the Cavaliers. He scored 11 points and hauled in six rebounds in the 109-102 loss. He went 5 of 8 from the field, including 1 for 2 from downtown while playing 41 minutes. Fields also chipped in with three steals and two assists in the defeat.
Analysis: Fields is having a solid rookie campaign for the Knicks and is averaging 10.3 points with 7.4 rebounds on the year. His production has been inconsistent at times but he has the ability to fill up the stat sheet on a nightly basis. Fields is also a nice source for 3-pointers and should be considered a viable option in deeper formats heading into Week 9 (Dec. 20-26).
News: New York SF Landry Fields had a big game Sunday in Toronto. Fields scored 15 points on 5 of 10 shooting as he went 2 for 2 from 3-point range. He added 10 rebounds for the double-double over 36 minutes on the floor. Fields added three steals and three assists in the contest.
Analysis: Fields has some great games and some mediocre ones for the Knicks. He's a little inconsistent, but he's also been a revelation. He wasn't expected to contribute as much as he has. Fields is averaging 9.0 points, 3.4 assists, 8.0 rebounds, 1.4 steals and a 3-pointer per game over his last five. As long as he produces across the board like that, Fields should see activity in at least many deeper Fantasy formats.
News: Knicks guard Landry Fields was named the Eastern Conference rookie of the month on Wednesday after averaging 10.8 points and 7.1 rebounds in 16 November games. Fields, the 39th overall pick in last June's draft, leads all NBA guards in rebounding.
Analysis: Fields, who helped the Knicks to a 9-7 record in November, is averaging 30.4 minutes per game, fifth on the team. The first-year player out of Stanford is a worthwhile Fantasy option in deeper leagues but owners in shallow leagues might want to be keep tabs on his upcoming performances. New York has a favorable upcoming schedule, including two games against Toronto and Fields could continue his stellar play.
News: New York forward Landry Fields had another excellent performance on Saturday against Atlanta. Fields shot 6 for 10 from the field and hit a 3-pointer to score 15 points. He added 11 rebounds and was double-digits in boards in the second straight game.
Analysis: Fields is averaging close to 11 points and eight rebounds per game over his last five. That comes with 1.2 steals and almost a 3-pointer per game. Fields is officially worth having on all deeper Fantasy rosters after a week like that.
News: Knicks rookie guard Landry Fields posted his first double-digit scoring effort in three games Tuesday against the Bobcats. Fields scored 14 points on 6 of 10 shooting from the floor in 26 minutes. He went 2 of 4 from downtown and also chipped in with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in the 110-107 victory.
Analysis: Fields has been seeing about 28 minutes a game for the Knicks and is averaging right around 11 points. While there is not doubt Fields can put the ball in the bucket he has been very inconsistent when it comes to filling out the rest of the stat sheet. He will most likely be continue to see decent minutes for coach Mike D'Antoni and can be considered a low-end Fantasy guard at this point.
News: Knicks SF Landry Fields has taken double-digit shots in only three of 13 games this season. On Saturday, he made it 14 with a 2 of 7 shooting effort against the Clippers. He finished with seven points on the night and contributed in the steals, assists, and rebounds department -- netting two in each category. Fields saw 30 minutes of playing time.
Analysis: Fields is contributing for the Knicks, but at a minimal rate in each area. He averages just over 10 points, nearly seven rebounds and one assist on average. Don't expect much more from Fields moving forward. He should be used primarily in deeper-Fantasy leagues.
News: Knicks SF Landry Fields had a monster double-double performance on Tuesday night in a loss at Denver. Fields took 15 shots and made 10 of them to score 21 points over 38 minutes. He added 17 rebounds in the game as both figures were career-highs for the rookie. Fields also had two steals in the game and shot 0 for 3 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Fields has scored in double figures in four straight games and is beginning to get into a stride for the Knicks. The rookie is averaging 13.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and a steal per game over his last five. Coach Mike D'Antoni likes to go with the hot hand and right now it belongs to Fields. Fantasy owners should begin adding him in deeper leagues.
News: Knicks F Landry Fields scored a career-high 16 points on Friday against the Timberwolves. Landry's previous high was 11 points, which he accomplished four times. Fields hit 7 of 14 field goals and also grabbed nine rebounds, which was one shy of recording his second career double-double. He added two assists and three steals.
Analysis: Fields is shooting over 50 percent from the field in his first nine NBA games. He is showing great composure for a rookie and it's probably one of the reasons why coach Mike D'Antoni keeps him in the starting lineup. Still, Fields' stat lines are still all over the place, so Fantasy owners can't rely on him as a high-end option just yet. He is more of a low-end Fantasy option in deeper formats.
News: New York forward Landry Fields failed to score in double figures for the first time this season. The rookie made both of his shots from the field -- one 3-pointer -- and went 1 for 2 from the foul line, finishing with a season-low six points. He played just 21 minutes as reserve guard Toney Douglas went off for 30 points in 31 minutes off the bench. Fields added three rebounds and one assist for the Knicks, as they beat the Bulls on Thursday 120-112.
Analysis: Fields was named a starter by coach Mike D'Antoni at the beginning of the season. If Douglas has a few more games like he did on Thursday, things may change. Fields has been shooting the ball well, but he got into foul trouble on Thursday. That also could have contributed to Douglas coming off the bench when he did, but only D'Antoni knows for sure. Fantasy owners should view him as a nice option in deeper leagues at this time, but keep an eye on Douglas as he makes a push for the starting job.
News: Knicks rookie F Landry Fields recorded the first double-double of his young career on Friday night against the Celtics. He scored 11 points and hauled in 10 rebounds in the 105-101 loss. Fields went 5 for 10 from the field, including 1 for 3 from downtown, while playing 34 minutes. He also chipped in with four assist and a steal in the defeat.
Analysis: Fields has been running with the starters in New York and should continue to do so as long as he keeps producing like this. The former Stanford Cardinal has impressed coach Mike D'Antoni and has shot the ball pretty well in his first two games. He might not average double-digit rebounds a night but he is definitely someone to keep an eye on throughout the course of the year in deeper leagues.
News: According to the New York Post, Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said he sees rookie Landry Fields as the starter for the entire season. "All year,'' D'Antoni said when asked how long this could last. "I'd be surprised if he can't do it.'' Fields made his NBA debut on Wednesday against the Raptors, and dropped 11 points on a 4-for-8 shooting performance -- 3 for 6 from downtown. He grabbed four rebounds and blocked a shot in his 30 minutes of action. "The best part of his game is all the little stuff, DAntoni said. He'll do what the game plan is. It's the consistency of all the details of the game that makes him unique. Normally you look at inconsistency as a rookie but I don't see that. He didn't look nervous whatsoever.''
Analysis: D'Antoni didn't think Fields would crack the rotation this quick, but the 24-year-old rookie keeps getting better. As long as he keeps getting between 20 and 30 minutes of court time a night, Fields will be worth using as a low-end starter. He could thrive in D'Antoni's system, so he is definitely worth monitoring to start the season.
News: Knicks F Landry Fields began his career as a starter on Wednesday in the season opener against the Raptors. Fields started in a game the Knicks won as he played 30 minutes and dropped 11 points. Fields shot 4 of 8 from the field and went 3 of 6 from the 3-point line. He added four rebounds and a blocked shot. Fields did have a scary moment in the game when he came down hard on his back. He got up slowly but was able to finish the game.
Analysis: Fields wasn't a superstar but give the rookie a break in his first NBA game. The rookie out of Stanford is definitely going to be a cheap source of 3-point shooting this season. He's only owned in 8 percent of Fantasy leagues so if you need help in that area, don't hesitate to give him a whirl. Remember, anyone can drop 20 points in Mike D'Antoni's system.
News: Knicks swingman Landry Fields has been named the team's starting shooting guard for the first game of the regular season on Wednesday in Toronto. Wilson Chandler will come off the bench. "He doesn't make many mistakes, takes shots when he's open," coach Mike D'Antoni told the Bergen County Record.
Analysis: Fields is a rookie who hit double figures in scoring in three of seven preseason appearances. He has a decent 3-point shot and could be a popular pickup off the waiver wire as would any player seeing significant playing time in New York. However, we still expect players like Chandler and Toney Douglas to keep his playing time low. Take a chance on Fields as a flier pickup, but temper expectations for now.
News: One day after saying SF Landry Fields has earned a spot in his rotation, Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni told the Bergen County Record the rookie is "in the mix" to start. The second-round pick had 15 points, three rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes Wednesday at Philadelphia.
Analysis: D'Antoni has also suggested Toney Douglas and Timofey Mozgov will start, and we haven't even mentioned Amar'e Stoudemire, Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari. In case you haven't noticed, NBA teams only start five players, so we highly doubt Fields will be one of those five. Then again, D'Antoni hasn't shied away from changing up his rotation during his time with the Knicks. The rookie is worth monitoring, but you shouldn't expect much from him out of the gate.
News: Knicks SF Landry Fields, the 39th overall pick in this year's draft, has earned a spot in the team's rotation, according to the New York Post, after contributing 15 points, three rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes Wednesday at Philadelphia. "It means he's going to find some time," coach Mike D'Antoni said. "I've got to find some time for him. He's played well. He's made the case."
Analysis: Fields has proven to be a decent scorer and rebounder in limited minutes. The Knicks will be trying to find minutes for several players off the bench, so Fields could still get lost in the shuffle. He's worth monitoring, but you should leave him on waivers in Fantasy for now.
