Top Obi Toppin News

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Dealt to Indiana

    The Knicks traded Toppin to the Pacers for two future second-round picks Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Toppin started just five games for New York in 2022-23, as he was stuck behind Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson in the frontcourt. However, he will likely be competing with rookie Jarace Walker for a starting power forward job in Indiana next year. Last season, Toppin averaged 7.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 15.7 minutes across 67 games.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Moves back to bench

    Toppin isn't in the starting five for Tuesday's Game 2 versus the Heat.

    Julius Randle will replace Toppin in the starting lineup Tuesday after missing Game 1 with an ankle injury. Toppin averaged 8.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 assists in 17.2 minutes across five games coming off the bench in the Knicks' first-round matchup with the Cavaliers.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Solid effort in spot start

    Toppin registered 18 points (7-15 FG, 4-11 3Pt), eight rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 108-101 loss to the Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    Toppin replaced Julius Randle (ankle) in the starting lineup and ended with a relatively strong line. There is no word on whether Randle will continue to miss time moving forward. However, should that be the case, Toppin figures to feature heavily as the Knicks look to wrestle back the advantage over a dogged Heat outfit.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Draws start sans Randle

    Toppin will start Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Heat on Sunday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Toppin will move into the starting lineup in place of Julius Randle, who's been ruled out after tweaking his ankle during the Knicks' close-out Game 5 win over Cleveland. Through five playoff contests, Toppin has averaged 8.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 17.2 minutes per game.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: On bench for playoffs opener

    Toppin will be on the bench for Game 1 against the Cavaliers on Saturday, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports.

    Toppin moves back to the bench with Julius Randle (ankle) available and ready to start. Toppin saw extended minutes as Randle's replacement in the final five games of the regular season and averaged 21.8 points with 3.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists per contest, but he's slated to see a lesser role in the second unit. He averaged just 6.3 points and 2.8 rebounds across 62 bench appearances during the regular season.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Erupts for 34 in Sunday's loss

    Toppin had 34 points (13-23 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and two steals across 37 minutes during Sunday's 141-136 loss to Indiana.

    Making his fifth straight start, Toppin set a season high with 34 points during the Knicks' regular-season finale. The third-year forward has displayed the upside that made him the eighth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft over the last couple weeks, averaging 21.8 points during his latest starting stint, and he might remain in the starting five to begin the Knicks' first-round series against the Cavaliers if Julius Randle (ankle) isn't yet 100 percent.

  • Knicks' Obi Toppin: Tops 30 points for first time

    Toppin chipped in 32 points (11-18 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, three rebounds and one steal across 43 minutes during Wednesday's 138-129 victory over the Pacers.

    Toppin starred in the final week of the 2021-22 regular season with 42- and 35-point performances in the Knicks' last two games, and he's making a run at repeating that trend in 2022-23. After scoring a season-high 21 points in Sunday's win over the Wizards, Toppin was able to raise his production higher while taking on a shorthanded Pacers roster. The 25-year-old should continue to start at power forward over the Knicks' final two games of the regular season while Julius Randle (ankle) is sidelined, though he could lose out on at least a few shot attempts if distributor Jalen Brunson (hand) misses additional time. Regardless, Toppin's minutes appear to be secure sans Randle, making him a strong streaming option no matter who else is available for the Knicks.
