    Frank Ntilikina had a double-double on Tuesday vs. the Wizards, finishing with a season-high 20 points ( 6-of-9 FG, 3-for-5 3PT), 10 rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes, which was tied for a team-high.

    This effort came out of nowhere and there's no reason to expect consistent production from Ntilikina as the season winds down. That being said, as the games become more and more meaningless for the Knicks, they could give guys like Ntilikina more floor time. Leave him on the wire.

    Frank Ntilikina (right ankle) is probable to face the Pistons on Sunday.

    Ntilikina continues to be praised as a great defender but is not consistent enough in the minutes or stat-sheet departments to be considered in fantasy leagues.

    Frank Ntilikina (right ankle) has been deemed questionable to return to Friday's game against the Thunder due to a strained right ankle.

    Now we know why Ntilikina fouled intentionally to check out of the game in the second quarter. He hasn't held any fantasy value this season, proceed as you normally would.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) was able to give it a go on Saturday and saw 17 minutes off the bench, recording four points, two rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.

    Elfrid Payton was awful in 33 minutes, going 1-for-4 from the field and the free-throw line for three points, one rebound and 10 assists. As long as Payton is playing, Ntilikina will not be a viable player in fantasy.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) will return to action on Saturday against the Bulls.

    Ntilikina should return to the backup PG minutes with Dennis Smith out. He's a deep-league option for steals but there's very limited upside while Elfrid Payton is on his roll.

    Frank Ntilikina is probable heading into Saturday's contest vs. the Bulls, as he continues to recover from a sore groin.

    Ntilikina is the backup point guard for the Knicks, and he will have a difficult time entering the discussion past deep leagues in these circumstances. Dennis Smith Jr. (concussion protocol) has been ruled out, which will give Ntilikina a few more minutes for this game.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) has been downgraded to out ahead of Thursday’s game vs. the Sixers.

    Ntilikina is second on the depth chart behind Elfrid Payton. Frank would need to play starter-level minutes in order to enter the standard league conversation. For now, he is a low-end defensive-specialist handcuff.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is doubtful to play on Thursday.

    Ntilikina was the starter in New York at the beginning of the season but has faded with the return of Elfrid Payton, and now it's possible that he's lost the backup gig to Dennis Smith Jr. Frankie Smokes is only an option in the deepest of leagues when healthy.

    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton (right ankle soreness) will return to action for Wednesday’s matchup vs. the Hornets.

    Payton will be able to play in his first game after the All-Star break, after missing the last two contests. He has proven to be the most reliable point guard that the Knicks have on their roster this season and should be rostered across standard formats as he is currently producing top-91/108 per-game value in 8/9-cat this season. Dennis Smith Jr. will head back to the bench but could see limited minutes with Frank Ntilikina (groin) sidelined.

    Frank Ntilikina will miss Wednesday's game against the Hornets due to a sore groin.

    This will be the second consecutive game where Ntilikina won’t be able to play. Elfrid Payton is expected to be back though while Dennis Smith Jr. is getting the backup minutes for now.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Ntilikina is looking likely to miss his second straight game. With Elfrid Payton probable for this one, Ntilikina would be pushed back to a reserve role if he can get cleared. Dennis Smith Jr. will again look to pick up extra minutes in this one.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) will not play on Monday.

    With Elfrid Payton still questionable, we could see a lot of Dennis Smith Jr. tonight. He's a viable DFS dart but it's been established that fantasy expectations should be low there.

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Payton was dealing with a sore right ankle which caused him to miss practice on Saturday and now his groin is also bothering him. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off but if he does suit up he'll be worth playing seeing as he's been an upper mid-round guy as of late.

    Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) did not practice on Saturday.

    The Knicks' next game will be on Monday so we should have another update on Payton by then. Ignoring his free-throw percentage, he has been an upper mid-round guy for the last couple of months so he definitely a hold for now. Frank Ntilikina picked up the start on Friday with 14 points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two triples in 32 minutes with Dennis Smith Jr. putting up three points, six assists and two steals in 16 minutes as the backup.
