Ntilikina supplied 20 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 assists, two rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 122-115 loss to the Wizards. Ntilikina amassed a career high scoring total while posting a season high in dimes. Ntilikina has also swiped two steals in three of the last five tilts, and he made the most of his opportunity on a night when Elfrid Payton struggled with his shot and foul trouble. However, unless Ntilikina starts earning this many minutes on a consistent basis, he's unlikely to hold much value beyond deeper leagues.
Ntilikina (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against the Pistons, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports. Ntilikina played just 10 minutes Friday due to an ankle injury he suffered, but it seems like he should be healthy for Sunday. He's found his shot recently, hitting 50.0 percent of his field goals across the past five games.
Ntilikina is considered questionable to return to Friday's game against the Thunder due to an ankle injury. Ntilikina suffered the injury after just six minutes of action. Expect an update once the Knicks provide more clarity on the situation.
Ntilikina logged 29 minutes off the bench in Monday's 125-123 win over the Rockets, producing 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt), four assists and two steals. Ntilikina was making his second appearance for the Knicks since returning over the weekend from a three-game absence due to a groin injury. He was held under 20 minutes in Saturday's win over the Bulls, but Ntilikina was able to pick up some extra playing time thanks to starting point guard Elfrid Payton's lackluster production. Considering Payton had played 30-plus minutes in all but one of his prior 13 appearances, it's tough to bank on Ntilikina getting this level of playing time again Wednesday versus the Jazz.
Ntilikina (groin) will play Saturday against the Bulls, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports. Ntilikina sat out the past three games due to groin soreness, but he's feeling healthy enough to return. In six February appearances, he's averaging 6.0 points, 2.8 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 20.0 minutes.
