Frank Ntilikina is impressing the Knicks, even from his couch

Frank Ntilikina is impressing the Knicks, even from his couch

Frank Ntilikina spent Friday night on his own, resting his sore right knee. But the Knicks rookie guard didnt treat it like a night off, a chance to go out on the town in his new city.

Ntilikina not only sat on his couch and watched the Knicks face the Wizards in Washington, but also he picked up a few things. He noticed the Knicks had added a few plays he was unfamiliar with, and later asked the coaching staff about them.

Not many guys will notice that, coach Jeff Hornacek said.

It was just the latest example of how much the 6-foot-5 rookie from France is impressing his new team, even when hes not on the court.

The hope is Ntilikina, the eighth pick in Junes draft, will return to practice in the next few days and get on the court for the preseason finale Friday against the Wizards at the Garden.

The knee feels a lot better than it did last week, he said. Ntilikina doesnt want to miss any more time, but he also would prefer to be patient rather than suffer a setback.

We got to be smart about playing at the right time, said Ntilikina, who has missed the past three preseason games. Maybe Friday is going to be the right time. I know its important for me to be on the court getting experience, but we have to be smart about it.
