Dalembert (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Blazers, Newsday's Al Lannazzone reports.

Dalmbert suffered the ankle injury in Saturday's loss, and despite the fact that X-rays came back negative, his status for Sunday remains cloudy. If he's unable to go, look for Cole Aldrich to draw the start.

Dalembert sprained his ankle in the Knicks' overtime loss Saturday, but X-rays have come back negative, Al Iannazzone reports.

If Dalembert misses Sunday's game, Cole Aldrich and Jason Smith would be the biggest beneficiaries, with Aldrich already starting over Dalembert and worth a look on the last day of head-to-head matchups. Dalembert has been too inconsistent this season to make him valuable in fantasy leagues.

Dalembert started at center for the Knicks on Thursday, but mustered just two points and four rebounds in 12 minutes while turning the ball over twice and picking up two fouls early on.

This production wasn't too far off Dalembert's pace. He's averaging 15.7 minutes this month and he's shooting 43.9 percent. Thursday, Jason Smith and Cole Aldrich both had more playing time than Dalembert, but there's not any centers on the Knicks that fantasy owners should feel great using.

Dalembert will return to the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

He'll displace Quincy Acy, who moves to the bench in a last-minute lineup switch for coach Derek Fisher. Dalembert's advancing age makes it unlikely that he'll play more than 20-to-25 minutes on a given night, while seeing limited involvement on the offensive end for the Knicks.

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 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.
