Top Taj Gibson News

  • Taj Gibson: Deal with New York expires

    Gibson became an unrestricted free agent Tuesday after his second 10-day contract with the Knicks expired, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    If the Knicks are interested in retaining Gibson coming out of the All-Star break, he would need to be signed to a rest-of-season contract now that his pair of 10-day deals have lapsed. Though head coach Tom Thibodeau has a long-term working relationship with Gibson and values the 38-year-old as a locker-room presence, the Knicks may not have much of a need for Gibson if starting center Isaiah Hartenstein (Achilles) is ready to play Thursday in Philadelphia.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Moves to bench Monday

    Gibson will come off the bench for Monday's game against Houston, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson will give way to Jericho Sims in the starting lineup. Gibson is averaging 1.2 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 13 games off the bench this season, although his workload is on the rise with Isaiah Hartenstein (Achilles) inactive.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Making start Saturday

    Gibson is in the starting lineup to face the Pacers on Saturday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson will get the starting nod due to Isaiah Hartenstein (Achilles) and Jericho Sims (illness) being sidelined. This will be the first start of the campaign for the veteran, who has made 13 appearances off the bench this term, averaging 10.2 minutes per contest.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Signs second 10-day contract

    The Knicks signed Gibson to a second 10-day contract Friday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson rejoined the Knicks at the end of January but has had an inconsistent role over the past few days. He wasn't part of the rotation for three matchups but has seen double-digit minutes in the last two games, averaging 2.5 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game. While he'll remain with the club on another 10-day deal, his role will likely continue to fluctuate.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Back to New York on 10-day deal

    The Knicks signed Gibson to a 10-day contract Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Gibson signed with the Knicks in December following injuries to Mitchell Robinson (ankle) and Jericho Sims, but he was let go before his contract became fully guaranteed. Sims has since returned to full strength, while Robinson remains out. The Knicks are also going to be without Julius Randle (shoulder) for at least the next couple of weeks, so Gibson should provide frontcourt depth once again. In 10 appearances this season, Gibson has averaged 1.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.6 blocks in 9.7 minutes per game.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Waived by New York

    Gibson was waived by the Knicks on Sunday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson's contract was set to become fully guaranteed Sunday, so cutting him represents a cost-savings move as well as a roster-flexibility move for New York. The 38-year-old averaged 1.4 points and 1.8 rebounds in 9.7 minutes across 10 appearances for the Knicks this season.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Inactive Wednesday

    Gibson (recently signed) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

    An earlier report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN on Wednesday noted that Gibson signed a one-year deal to return to New York. However, with the transaction yet to officially be processed, he'll be unable to suit up Wednesday. However, he's expected to join the team at some point during the Knicks' five-game road trip, which ends Dec. 20.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Returning to New York

    Gibson signed a one-year contract with the Knicks on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Gibson spent the 2022-23 campaign with the Wizards, but before that, he had a three-year stint in New York, where he averaged 5.3 points and 4.8 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game over 159 appearances. While he played a career-low 9.8 minutes per game in Washington, Gibson has plenty of experience playing under coach Tom Thibodeau and will provide frontcourt depth for the Knicks, who will be without Mitchell Robinson (ankle) for several weeks. Dylan Windler was waived by New York to make room on the roster.

  • Taj Gibson: Parts ways with Washington

    Gibson was waived by the Wizards on Monday, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson's production declined during his first year in Washington last season, as he averaged 3.4 points and 1.9 rebounds in 9.8 minutes per game over 49 appearances. The 38-year-old was unable to make the Wizards' final roster this year and will now have to seek out other opportunities for the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Wizards' Taj Gibson: Scores five in win

    Gibson recorded five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and one assist in seven minutes during Wednesday's 131-106 preseason win over the Knicks.

    Gibson dealt with a groin injury to begin the preseason but was a full participant in Sunday's practice before suiting up Wednesday. It wouldn't be surprising to see him available for Friday's preseason finale against the Raptors.

  • Wizards' Taj Gibson: Out against Charlotte

    Gibson (groin) has been ruled out for Washington's preseason contest against the Hornets on Thursday, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson missed the preseason opener against the Cairns Taipans of Australia's NBL, and head coach Wes Unseld Jr. said the veteran big man will remain out here. His next chance to feature will come against the Knicks on Oct. 18.

  • Wizards' Taj Gibson: Won't play in exhibition

    Gibson (groin) is out for Tuesday's exhibition against the Cairns Taipans of Australia's NBL, Chase Hughes of Monumental Sports Network reports.

    Gibson's groin injury is considered minor, but the Wizards are holding him out of Tuesday's scrimmage for precautionary reasons. The veteran big man's next opportunity to suit up will be Thursday's preseason matchup with Charlotte.

  • Wizards' Taj Gibson: Held out of scrimmage

    Gibson was held out of Friday's open scrimmage as a precautionary measure due to groin soreness, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson's injury doesn't appear to be particularly serious, and he's labeled as day-to-day ahead of Thursday's preseason opener against the Hornets. It's unclear whether he'll be forced to miss any preseason action, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him available for the start of the regular season in late October. During his first year in Washington, the 38-year-old averaged 3.4 points and 1.9 rebounds in 9.8 minutes per game over 49 appearances.

  • Wizards' Taj Gibson: Returning to Washington

    Gibson signed a one-year, $3.2 million deal with the Wizards on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Gibson will return to Washington for a second season after he appeared in 49 games (two starts) during the 2022-23 campaign. The backup center averaged 3.4 points and 1.9 rebounds in 9.8 minutes per game, marking the first time in his 14-year career he ended a season with less than 10 minutes per game. The 38-year-old may be able to carve out a bigger role behind Daniel Gafford with Kristaps Porzingis no longer in the picture, but Gibson likely still won't be fantasy relevant during the 2023-24 season.

  • Wizards' Taj Gibson: Good to go Tuesday

    Gibson (illness) is available for Tuesday's contest against the Pistons, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Gibson was initially listed as out but is feeling better than expected. He hasn't cleared single-digit minutes since Feb. 28, so his presence doesn't alter things much.
