    Frank Ntilikina is expected to miss Summer League and play for the French National team in the World Cup instead according to Stefan Bondy of New York Daily News.

    Ntilikina's career with the Knicks has been disappointingly uneventful and rumored to be close to ending for a while now. His absence at Summer League won't affect the Knicks much as they likely continue to field trade calls for him.

    Ian Begley of SNY reported that the Knicks asked for a 2nd-round pick in exchange for Frank Ntilikina.

    Ntilikina has had a disappointing career thus far with the Knicks as he has struggled to score on the NBA level. He has a ways to go before entering the fantasy landscape but a change of scenery could end up as a positive.

    Frank Ntilikina's new agent Bouna Ndiaye denied the rumors of Nitilikina switching agents because he wants a trade and said, “I can just tell you that the fact he was not traded has nothing to do with this change of agent. Frank is extremely happy to be part of the Knicks.”

    Ultimately, the Knicks are going to explore every avenue available to shedding salary cap space, and Nitilikina and his roughly $5 million 2019-20 salary are likely to be shipped somewhere else. With a $6 million team option in 2020 followed by an $8 million qualifying offer in 2021, there should be a rebuilding team looking to see if they can tap into the potential of the former eighth overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft.

    The Knicks are shopping Frank Ntilikina for a late-first or 2nd round pick according to Marc Berman of the New York Post

    The paltry return they're searching for tells the story for the former lottery pick. It hasn't been a strong first two years for the young PG, but there will likely be an offer or two for him out there from a bottoming-out team who may want to take a filer on him for his defensive upside. Still though, Ntilikina has a long way to go before he can be considered a reliable NBA player.

    Frank Ntilikina (groin) saw steps back in all the relevant fantasy categories (besides blocks) in his second NBA season.

    More damningly, Ntilikina saw his playing time fall from 21.9 to 21.0 mpg this year. It’s not a huge drop, but the fact that a former lottery pick couldn’t earn more than that on a team this dreadful, even with questionable rotations, is not a good sign. Ntilikina missed 32 of the season’s final 34 games because of a groin strain/soreness and was only a top-315/365 value in 8/9-cat leagues when he was on the court. The Knicks may or may not have given up on him, depending on who’s talking and what day it is, but fantasy owners have yet to see any of his physical tools turn into meaningful statistical production.

    Frank Ntilikina was re-evaluated by the Knicks medical staff and Friday's reports say he will miss the rest of the season with a groin strain.

    Ntilikina aggravated the strained groin late last week (March 24th) and there's no reason for him to play more minutes for this disastrous Knicks team. He's definitely off redraft radars but it's more concerning how little he's progressed after being a top-10 draft pick. A change of scenery might be his only saving grace.

    The Knicks are listing Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) as out for Thursday's matchup with the Raptors.

    We have yet to hear an update about Ntilikina's evaluation that was scheduled for today, but the early call on his status does not bode well. Ntilikina can be left on the waiver wire.

    Though Frank Ntilikina will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, David Fizdale said on Tuesday that he doesn't have a timetable for Ntilikina to return after he re-aggravated his groin injury Sunday.

    What a tough break for Ntilikina who just returned to game action last week. The news doesn't sound great and it wouldn't be shocking if Ntilikina sat out the rest of the season. He can be ignored for the remainder of your fantasy season.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) did not practice on Tuesday and the Knicks are set to re-evaluate him on Wednesday.

    Missing practice is never a good sign. It's not looking likely that Ntilikina will play again this season after his most recent setback, but we will have a better idea after the re-evaluation.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is doubtful to return to Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Ntilikina just returned from a 24-game absence and now it looks like he'll be missing a couple more games. The Knicks only have nine games left so it's possible he's shut down for the rest of the year. This game vs. the Clippers unfortunately seems to have cost the Knicks Kevin Knox and Ntilikina which obviously isn't great.

    Frank Ntilikina (groin) returned from a 24-game absence and had five points, one trey, five assists and four rebounds in Friday's loss to the visiting Nuggets.

    Ntilikina played 25 minutes which was a little surprising considering how long he's been out of action. Still, he can be left on the wire, especially with only two games next week.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) and Kadeem Allen (illness) will both be available to play on Friday.

    Neither is a particularly inspired play playing distributor behind Emmanuel Mudiay and both can be left on the wire.

    Coach David Fizdale said the Knicks didn't really have a practice today, so Frank Ntilikina (groin) is still questionable for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    When Ntilikina returns, he will battle Kadeem Allen for backup PG minutes behind Emmanuel Mudiay while Dennis Smith Jr. is sidelined.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Jazz, and the Knicks want to see him get through another practice before returning.

    That makes it sound like Ntilikina will play in the next one barring a setback. He's going to be battling with Kadeem Allen for the backup point guard work with Dennis Smith Jr. sidelined, but it'd be surprising if he made an impact in fantasy leagues. Deep-league steals appeal is just about all Ntilikina is bringing to the table right now.
