Frank Ntilikina said he has been dealing with a sore knee for close to a month, according to Marc Berman of The New York Post.
“It’s been like a month,” Ntilikina said. “It [felt] a little sore. Now it feels a little more sore. It will be all right.” Ntilikina was shut down in the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Hawks in place of Trey Burke. The Knicks next game is Tuesday at home versus the Bucks. It remains unclear if the rookie will play, but the Knicks seem locked in on splitting the point guard minutes between Jarret Jack, Burke and Ntilikina (when healthy). It is hard to own any of them in a standard league until we get some clarity on the rotation.
