Ntilikina spent Friday night on his own resting his sore right knee but the Knicks’ rookie guard didn’t treat it like a night off. He sat on his couch and watched the Knicks face the Wizards in Washington, while picking up a few plays he was unfamiliar with. He later asked the coaching staff about them which says a lot about the rookie’s work ethic. The No. 8 draft pick in this year’s draft missed all of the NBA’s summer league and the hope is he will return to practice in the next few days. Although he doesn’t want to miss any more time, the Knicks won’t risk having him suffer a setback which also explains today’s signing of Trey Burke.
