Description: Pacers small forward Chris Copeland came off the bench to lead the team in scoring against the Bulls.
Insight: The Pacers offense continues to be sporatic, receiving contributions from everywhere, which makes it hard to determine who to go with in fantasy. On Monday, Copeland shot 7-of-10 and made two free throws on his way to 17 points.

Description: Pacers small forward Chris Copeland had surgery to remove a loose body from his left knee on Friday. SOURCE:
Insight: He'll need 6-to-8 weeks to recover. Copeland is in no danger of missing the start of the regular season.

Description: The Knicks didn't match Indiana's two-year offer for forward Chris Copeland.
Insight: The deadline for the Knicks to submit an offer was July 13th. Copeland (8.7 ppg in New York last season) will be a helpful addition off the bench but he probably won't be of much use to fantasy owners.

Insight: Of course, because Copeland is only a restricted free agent, the Knicks can match that. Copeland was a pleasant surprise for the Knicks in 2012-13, averaging 8.7 ppg in 56 contests. At age 29, Copeland's ceiling isn't as high as most second-year players but he can still make an impact in the right setting.

Description: New York forward Chris Copeland finished the regular season on a high note, producing 33 points in 40 minutes of action.
Insight: Copeland hoisted up a career-high 29 shots in the win. He won't see much action during the playoffs so this will probably be the last we see of Copeland for a while. However, he finished the season by averaging 28.3 ppg over his last three games.

Description: Knicks forward Chris Copeland rewarded his fantasy owners with another spectacular game Monday against Charlotte.
Insight: The rookie finished with 32 points and seven rebounds in 47 minutes. He's shooting 42.6 percent from three point-land this season.
4/14/2013 10:13:00 PM
Description: Knicks forward Chris Copeland had 20 points, three rebounds, one steal and two threes in 34 minutes Sunday against the Pacers.
Insight: Copeland is averaging 15.2 ppg over his last five games and is a must-start Monday against the Bobcats with Carmelo Anthony already ruled out.
4/11/2013 5:52:00 PM
Description: Knicks forward Chris Copeland will start at center Thursday against the Bulls, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin are both out of the lineup. The Knicks can afford to play the defensively challenged Copeland at center since Joakin Noah and Taj Gibson are both out as well. Copeland is averaging 15 points and 6.0 rebounds over his last two games.
3/17/2013 6:33:00 PM
Description: Knicks forward Chris Copeland had 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and three triples in 26 minutes Sunday against the Clippers.
Insight: Copeland is averaging 11.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.8 threes over his last five games. He'll have moderate fantasy value as long as Carmelo Anthony (knee) remains out of the lineup, but Melo is day-to-day and could return Monday.
1/13/2013 2:46:00 PM
Description: Knicks forward Chris Copeland started and scored 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting in 30 minutes Sunday versus the Hornets.
Insight: Copeland has only been called upon to play meaningful minutes when Carmelo Anthony hasn't been available this season, but he played next to Melo Sunday. We'll keep an eye on how his role shakes out over the next few games.
1/10/2013 3:28:00 PM
Description: Knicks forward Chris Copeland is likely to start in Carmelo Anthony's place Thursday against Indiana. Anthony was suspended one game for trying to confront Celtics center Kevin Garnett after the game on Monday night.
Insight: Amare Stoudemire will continue to come off the bench. Copeland is averaging 6.4 ppg in his first NBA season. There's no reason to own him in fantasy.
12/17/2012 10:02:00 PM
Description: With Carmelo Anthony (ankle) out again, Chris Copeland started his second straight game for the Knicks Monday and scored a career-high 29 points on 11-of-19 shooting (3-5 3PT, 4-4 FT).
Insight: Copeland averaged 15.5 ppg in six preseason games with games of 34 and 21 points so we know he can score. However, he's unlikely to receive much playing time when Carmelo Anthony returns to the lineup, and his value will be limited further by the return of Amare Stoudemire.

Description: Knicks forward Chris Copeland scored 34 points on 11-of-18 shooting (3-of-4 3PT, 9-of-9 FT) and grabbed six rebounds in 37 minutes off the bench in Saturday's preseason loss to the Celtics.
Insight: The Knicks sat every starter besides Raymond Felton and also didn't playing Marcus Camby, Ronnie Brewer and J.R. Smith, allowing Copeland ample playing time. The rookie forward also had 21 points in 19 minutes last Sunday against Boston, but he's unlikely to carry much fantasy value in the regular season.
