Frank Ntilikina    G  Knicks

 

 

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said Frank Ntilikina's knee may have held him back before the break. "He just looked exhausted sometimes," Hornacek said. "His knee hurt for a while there, and that’s stuff we have to build up. And again, this is going to be a great last 23 games for him because, we’ll see, can he play the 30 minutes without his knees hurting? Part of that is growth." It sounds like he may eventually start next to Emmanuel Mudiay, but it's obvious that the Knicks want to get him more run. He hasn't been playing well on the offensive end, so most fantasy owners can just watch his progress from the wire.

Jeff Hornacek said on Wednesday that Frank Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay and Trey Burke will be getting more minutes towards the second half of the season. It wouldn't be shocking to see Jarrett Jack cede the starting spot to either Ntilikina or Mudiay for the second half of the year, but with all these guys vying for minutes, this could devolve into a value-killing timeshare situation. Ntilikina and Mudiay might be worth a look in really deep leagues, but it's tough to see them churning out value in most 12-team formats.

Frank Ntilikina said he would love to start at point guard if coach Jeff Hornacek decides to replace Jarrett Jack in the starting lineup. After the Knicks loss to the Wizards on Wednesday, Hornacek told reporters he would likely tinker with the starting lineup after the team returned from the All-Star break. The player most likely to be bumped to the bench is aging veteran Jarrett Jack. Ntilikina or newly acquired Emmanuel Mudiay are expected to inherit the starting PG gig. Either way, both Mudiay and Ntilikina should see additional minutes over the second half of the season.

Frank Ntilikina scored five points with two rebounds and three assists in 21 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday. He has some competition with Emmanuel Mudiay coming to MSG, and Ntilikina said the move was "good for our future." Also, coach Jeff Hornacek was asked about Ntilikina starting. "It could be down the line. We don't know," said Hornacek. "We'll see what happens in the next week or so. We have four more games before the All-Star break. We'll continue to monitor that." He could get better soon, but it's really tough to stash him due to how he's really shown very little to this point.

Frank Ntilikina (knee soreness) played just 10 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Bucks with two points, two assists and one turnover. The Knicks lost Kristaps Porzingis (torn ACL) for the season tonight, so it would make a lot of sense for them to let the younger guys play more minutes going forward. Tim Hardaway Jr. also tweaked his troublesome left leg and coach Jeff Hornacek isn't afraid to use two-PG lineups, but The Frenchise has to start playing better before we can recommend him as a stash.

Frank Ntilikina (knee soreness) will play Tuesday vs. the Bucks. Ntilikina played only seven minutes on Sunday and did not practice on Monday. He told reporters that he's been dealing with a sore left knee for "like a month." That could be partly to blame for his unproductive play of late. The Knicks point guard situation is a bit of mess right now. Jarrett Jack, Ntilikina and Trey Burke have been splitting minutes, making it a somewhat unpredictable committee.

Ntilikina (knee) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bucks, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports. Ntilikina exited Sunday's loss tot he Hawks with a sore right knee, and while he was deemed available to return, the team ultimately held him out as a precaution. Ntilikina did not go through practice Monday, and the team will evaluate him at shootaround in the morning before issuing a more concrete update.

Frank Ntilikina (knee soreness) did not practice on Monday. The Knicks will list him as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks, but he previously said he was hopeful to play. The rookie admitted that his knee has been bothering him for about a month, so that might explain his quiet play. If Ntilikina doesn't play, Trey Burke will take over as Jarrett Jack's backup and had 14 points in 20 minutes on Sunday.

Frank Ntilikina said he's been dealing with a sore knee for a while. "It’s been like a month," Ntilikina said. "It [felt] a little sore. Now it feels a little more sore. It will be all right." Ntilikina was technically "available" to return to the second half of Sunday's game vs. the Hawks, but the Knicks sat him for the remainder of the game after seven first half minutes. The rookie said he's hoping to play on Tuesday vs. the Bucks, though it would make sense for the Knicks to give him a day off. If he can't go, Trey Burke will take over as the backup and is coming off a nice game with 14 points in 20 minutes.

Frank Ntilikina (sore right knee) didn't play in the second half of Sunday's game. Ntilikina didn't score in seven minutes, with Trey Burke taking his minutes in the second half. New York's next game is Tuesday vs. the Bucks and we'll consider Ntilikina questionable for now, but should have more details after Monday's practice. If he misses any time, Jarrett Jack should be looking at heavy minutes with help from Burke.
