Fantasy Impact: Tracy McGrady Already Having Knee Issues

We were right there with you. We were waiting for Tracy McGrady to get traded all season, hoping that he would get the chance to prove himself, knowing he could still play at a high level.

With his 26 points and five assists in his Knicks debut, McGrady validated his trade demands, and made all of his supporters look like geniuses.

But then came McGrady's own comments toward his health and durability, as he stated that he would prefer not to average 30+ minutes this early in his comeback.

Well, McGrady got the chance to start again that he was craving. Now he's got to keep the ball rolling.

And while his 15-point effort in his second game wasn't horrible, his 4-for-15 shooting was, and so was the fact that he was limping around in the fourth quarter against the Milwaukee Bucks, after banging his knee (twice).

Our vote supporting McGrady still stands, as the new issue with his knee has nothing to do with it's structure, and is common soreness.

However, McGrady is 30, hasn't played these kinds of minutes in a year, and is already experiencing some sort of discomfort.

That's what we like to call a red flag.

Pull the trigger on a trade if you can still sell McGrady based on his Knicks debut, as he still holds decent and fresh value.

We still like McGrady to stay healthy and give the NBA fans a good show down the stretch this season, but he may not be worth the risk for a lot of fantasy owners.
