• Frank Ntilikina
    PG/SG, New York Knicks

    When asked about the possibility of Trey Burke and Frank Ntilikina starting on Sunday, Jeff Horancek responded with "we might try that."

    That's coach speak for "Frank Ntilikina and Trey Burke will start tonight." It's not surprising considering how the minutes broke down last game, with starters Emmanuel Mudiay and Courtney Lee played five and 14 minutes, respectively. If this arrangement holds, which is unfortunately no guarantee, Burke and Ntilikina are both adds in 12-14-team formats. Burke is the better bet for points and threes with solid output in assists but owners should know that his shooting is way, way above his career averages. Ntilikina will produce more steals and rebounds but is no slouch in terms of threes and assists himself and doesn't come with the regression red flag. Burke is the better play right now but Ntilikina is the safer long-term play. There's only a couple weeks left in the season though, so just chase what you need.
