Ntilikina mustered 5.9 points, 3.2 assists and 2.3 rebounds across 78 games during his rookie campaign for New York in 2017-18.
Ntilikina was mainly used off the bench during his rookie year, however, he did dropped a career high 17 points against Cleveland on April 9 in a start. The France native should try to increase his shooting and field goal percentage come next season as they were sitting at a poor 36.4 and 31.8 percent respectively. Ntilikina is under contract next season where he will make a little over $4 million.
Nitilikina recorded 17 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists, a steal and a blocked shot in 50 minutes during Monday's 123-109 loss to the Cavaliers.
Monday's start only cemented the Knicks' intention to give the rookie an increased role next year, and even though he didn't quite work into the Knick's scheme this year, his talent is undeniable and demonstrated huge potential when he had opportunities, although increased time was stymied by a slump in the middle of the season. They will likely give Ntilikina similar minutes in their final game on Wednesday.
Ntilikina had two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 97-73 loss to the Magic.
After missing Saturday's showdown with the Pistons due to an illness, Ntilikina couldn't buy a bucket on offense in this one, and he finished with more turnovers (four) than dimes. With that being said, the rookie did draw a rare start, and could be in line to play a considerable role over the last four games of 2017-18.
Ntilikina (illness) will start at shooting guard for Tuesday's game against the Magic, Stefan Bondy of New York Daily News reports.
Ntilikina was already cleared to play Tuesday after sitting out the last contest with an illness, but he'll now be elevated into the top unit. However, in four previous starts this season, Ntilikina has averaged just 5.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists, so he's likely not someone to rely on in season-long leagues or DFS contests Tuesday.
Ntilikina (illness) has been cleared to play in Tuesday's matchup with the Magic, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports.
Ntilikina sat out Saturday's matchup with the Pistons due to an illness, but as expected, feels healthy enough to play after another few days off for rest and recovery. The rookie's workload his been somewhat limited of late, logging 24, 18 and 21 minutes respectively, over his last three contests, which restricts his overall upside for fantasy purposes.
