Ntilikina (groin) is expected to remain out until after the All-Star break, a source told Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.
When Ntilikina first suffered the groin injury Jan. 27, initial reports suggested the second-year guard would be sidelined for at least 1-to-2 weeks. With that period having since passed and no reports having surfaced indicating that Ntilikina is ready to resume practicing, it's not surprising that his return to action isn't considered imminent. The Frenchman now looks due to miss at least five more contests, providing the likes of Kadeem Allen, Damyean Dotson and Allonzo Trier with some added stability in the rotation.
Ntilikina (groin) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.
Ntilikina has reached the short end of the 1-to-2-week timeline the Knicks estimated for his recovery from the strained groin, but there's no indication that his return to game action is imminent. It wouldn't be surprising if the Knicks held him out of each of their final five games before the All-Star break to ensure he opens the second half in optimal health.
Ntilikina (groin) could be sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Ntilikina has already been ruled out for Monday's game due to a groin injury, and it sounds like the issue could keep him sidelined for longer than initially anticipated. He'll continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis until the Knicks provide an update regarding his status. In the meantime, Trey Burke should handle the bulk of point guard duties with Ntilikina and Emmanuel Mudiay (shoulder) both sidelined.
Ntilikina (groin) will not play Monday against the Hornets, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
As expected, Ntilikina didn't travel with the team to Charlotte and will miss at least one game due to the groin injury he picked up against the Heat over the weekend. The 20-year-old's next chance to play will come at home against the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Ntilikina isn't expected to travel with the team after suffering a groin injury Sunday against Miami, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
Ntilikina is reportedly dealing with a tweaked groin, and the Knicks are expected to hold him back when the team travels to Charlotte for a one-game road trip. It's unclear as to when he could be cleared to return, but he figures to miss at least one contest while on the mend.
