Ntilikina managed two points (1-3 FG) and two assists in 10 minutes during Tuesday's 103-89 loss to the Bucks.
Ntilikina played through knee and quad issues he sustained during Sunday's loss to the Hawks. However, he was not that effective, and he played sparingly while Jarrett Jack and Trey Burke ate up most of the minutes at point guard. With Kristaps Porzingis suffering a torn ACL, one would think that the Knicks will prioritize the development and health of Ntilikina going forward this season. Nevertheless, the rookie would probably still be pretty inconsistent even if he's afforded a more demanding role in the rotation.
Ntilikina (knee, quad) will play in Tuesday's game against the Bucks, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.
Ntilikina played just seven minutes Sunday before being forced from the game with both a knee and quad issue. However, it's clearly nothing overly serious, as Ntilikina won't miss any time and will take the court for Tuesday's contest as usual. In three games prior to Sunday's exit, Ntilikina averaged 7.3 points, 1.0 rebound and 4.3 assists across 21.7 minutes, so he wasn't necessarily providing much in terms of fantasy production.
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.
Ntilikina departed Sunday's game against the Hawks with a sore right knee but is available to return, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
While it appears the Ntilikina steered clear of a significant injury, Marc Berman of the New York Post posits that the rookie point guard will probably be shut down for the day as a precaution, especially with fellow reserve floor general Trey Burke playing well. Ntilikina registered zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two fouls and one turnover in seven minutes prior to his departure.
Ntilikina tallied nine points (4-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds and one steal across 17 minutes in Friday's 92-90 loss to the Bucks.
The rookie's effort was particularly impressive from an efficiency standpoint, as his scoring total equaled his best of the season in a game with less than 20 minutes of playing time. Moreover, his 44.4 percent shooting tally qualified as his second best over the last six contests. Ntilikina continues to share time with both starter Jarrett Jack and fellow reserve Trey Burke, limiting his overall upside for the moment. However, given Jack's inconsistent offensive contributions, it's plausible that Ntilikina could progressively carve out a larger role during the stretch run if he can generate performances the caliber of Friday's on a more consistent basis.
