Samuel Dalembert C NY 13 Days

Dalembert returned to the starting lineup Friday against the Hornets. He scored six points (3-6 FG)and added eight rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes.

The move out of, and back to, the starting lineup had no meaningful impact on Delambert's total workload. Friday represents a pretty standard stat line for Delambert - a bunch of rebounds, a block or two, and a single-digit scoring. While his per-minute production is excellent, his fantasy ceiling is pretty low. The 33-year-old is on his sixth team in six seasons, and not one of those six coaching staffs felt Delambert could handle more than about 25 minutes per game.

Dalembert will move back into the starting lineup at center Friday against the Hornets.

Dalembert came off the bench for 18 minutes Thursday, although he only averages 17.9 minutes per game this season as it is. He'll likely see around the same amount of minutes as a starter against the Hornets on Friday.

Dalembert came off the bench for 18 minutes against the Cavaliers on Thursday but managed to register six points, nine rebounds, and two steals during his time on the court.

Dalembert was moved to the bench Thursday, getting was replaced by Quincy Acy in the starting five, with Amar'e Stoudemire shifting down to center. Unfortunately for Dalembert, both Acy and Stoudemire had solid performances, so Dalembert might be held to a role off the bench moving forward. Although, he played his normal compliment of minutes Thursday, so his actual value may not take a hit.

Dalembert will come off the bench for Thursday's contest against the Cavaliers.

Dalembert will be replaced in the lineup by Quincy Acy, who will start at power forward while Amar'e Stoudemire will move to center. He could still see similar minutes to what he has been playing despite the move.

Dalembert scored 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-4 FT), with 13 rebounds, two blocks and two steals in 25 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.

Dalembert stepped up big for the Knicks inside, and he did it while playing fewer minutes than the bulk of the other starters. He's unreliable from a fantasy perspective, but monitor his upcoming games.

Dalembert has started all 11 of the Knicks' games this season, posting averages of 3.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 17.8 minutes per game.

Dalembert offers an experienced defensive presence that is unmatched on the Knicks' roster, thus allowing the 33-year-old to anchor New York's starting lineup to this point in the season. Nonetheless, as in years past, Dalembert's minutes average restricts his fantasy value, especially for an already-limited offensive player. While his current field goal efficiency of 38.5 percent is bound to rise closer to his career average of 52 percent, Dalembert's fantasy value remains rooted in his rebounding and shot-blocking abilities.

Dalembert played only 6 minutes in the Knicks' victory over Cleveland, but started and played 22 minutes against the Hornets.

The amount of minutes Dalembert is receiving is admirable, but he has yet to show for any of it. He only added 8 rebounds and 1 assist yesterday. The Knicks have clearly assigned Dalembert a very specific role, but his 20+ minutes look like a gaping hole in terms of production. He should provide a little bit of value if he can record some blocked shots.

Dalembert has been dealing with a minor calf injury but was able to practice in full Saturday, The Record reports.

Dalembert has started at center for the Knicks during both of their games this season but has played a total of 26 minutes between those two contests. A part of that can be chalked up to the calf injury that he's been dealing with, although he won't likely see extended amounts of time on the court even when healthy.

Dalembert is expected to start at center this season, ESPN New York reports.

Dalembert was acquired by the Knicks this offseason, after averaging 6.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 20.2 minutes during his sole season with the Mavericks last term. The 33-year-old offers an interior defensive presence unmatched on the Knicks' roster, making New York's starting center position Dalembert's to lose. Although Dalembert hasn't exceeded 25 minutes per game since the 2009-10 campaign, he's the kind of player that can flirt with double-doubles on most nights, giving him decent value in deeper fantasy leagues.

Samuel Dalembert's agent, Marc Cornstein, said his client will be "a perfect fit'' for the Knicks and he's always wanted to play in New York.

Dalembert went to college at Seton Hall in north Jersey and was just a New Jersey Turkpike trip away from NY as he spent his first eight seasons in Philadelphia. He's seen his minutes trend down since his Philly days, but he could have some decent fantasy value if the Knicks don't do anything about their frontcourt depth at center.
