Knicks, Frank Ntilikina is ready to return

Frank Ntilikina has finally come out of the coach’s room but will have to wait a little longer to get back on the pitch.

For the first time since December 29, when he sprained his right knee against the Cavaliers, Ntilikina was available off the bench on Sunday night, although he didn’t play because the Knicks fell to the Trail Blazers 116-113 in Portland.

“hE will be situational initially, we’ll see how it goes,” coach Tom Thibodeau said before the game. “We like what he brings to the team.”
