Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina (bruised knee) scrimmaged on Tuesday and is likely to play Thursday against the Thunder.
Ntilikina missed the last four preseason games due to the injury, but looks probable to play on Thursday. The teenage guard is only a backup right now behind starter Ramon Sessions and will have to fight of Ron Baker for minutes. It’s tough to justify holding him in standard redraft leagues until he earns more minutes or injuries occur. The role is not there right now, but if the Knicks fall out of playoff contention then his opportunities should expand later in the season.
