Elfrid Payton (ankle) probable for Knicks on Wednesday

New York Knicks point guard Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) is probable to play on Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets.

What It Means:

Payton missed the Knicks' first two games after the All-Star break. His return will likely push Dennis Smith Jr. back to the bench. Frank Ntilikina (groin) is doubtful. Payton has scored double-digit points in seven straight games, with averages of 14.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 9.4 assists, and 2.9 steals on a 46.9 field goal percentage in that span.

Elf is averaging 30.1 FanDuel points per game. numberFire's models project him for 13.4 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.5 3-pointers over the rest of the season.
