    Hezonja finished with 23 points (8-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and an assist over 26 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Impact

    Hezonja has played in three games after missing 12 games with a leg injury and averaged 16.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals in those contests. He's a solid, yet unexciting fantasy play.

    Hezonja will start at power forward in Sunday's tilt against the Lakers, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

    Impact

    Hezonja is sliding into the starting lineup with Dennis Smith (back) and Noah Vonleh (ankle) both out. Hezonja hasn't played in over a month but he'll figure to see a decently large role with the Knicks on Sunday while in the starting lineup.

    News

    Hezonja (leg) will be available for Friday's game against the Knicks, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

    Impact

    As expected, Hezonja has been cleared to play after being on the sidelines for more than a month due to a bruised left leg. Given his lengthy absence, it's unclear what his role in the team's rotation will be right off the bat, as it is possible the swingman is limited in the early goings.

    News

    Hezonja (leg) is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Spurs, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

    Impact

    Hezonja hasn't played in more than a calendar month, but he was back at practice Thursday and is expected to make his return Friday night. Given the long layoff, Hezonja could be limited initially, and it's unclear if he'll be able to reclaim the starting job he was holding down for three games before his injury.

    News

    Hezonja (leg) is out Tuesday against the Pacers.

    Impact

    There was some hope Hezonja could return Tuesday after being sidelined since Feb. 14 as a result of a bruised leg. However, he needs more time to recover, and his next chance to play arrives Friday against the Spurs.
