The Knicks didn't have enough players for a five-on-five practice so Frank Ntilikina didn't get to scrimmage again on Thursday. He is questionable for Friday's game against Denver. Ntilikina has been sidelined since late January with a groin injury.

Olsen Pierre's deal with the Giants is for one year and $1 million. It includes $150K guaranteed. Not a bad risk to take on a player that had 5.5 sacks two years ago in James Bettcher‘s defense.

St. John's junior Shamorie Ponds says he hasn't made a decision yet on if he'll enter the NBA Draft. Chris Mullin said he'll make sure Ponds knows how NBA GMs think about him "straight from the horse's mouth" and if he's ready, Mullin won't try to convince him to stay. "He's had a huge impact on our program, our school, and on New York. People love him. He's the kid that stayed home. ... He's going to go down as one of the best players in St. John's history."

Frank Ntilikina hasn't played since late January due to a groin injury. He'll practice with the Knicks on Thursday and is likely to play on Friday against Denver. Ntilikina was asked Wednesday if it's important for him to show something to the Knicks in the final games of the season. “Um, it might be important for you but for me, just, I want to play basketball. I want to grow with this team, my guys, all that showing and stuff is for you guys and for the fans. Me, I hate being on the side, not playing.”

Donovan Mitchell on Knicks' second-year guard Frank Ntilikina (3/3): "He's a talented player and once he starts to figure it out a little bit on offense they can be really good. He can pass the ball, he can defend, and that's my guy so I always have his back." Ntilikina is averaging 5.9 points on 34 percent shooting and 2.8 rebounds in 41 games. Mitchell and Ntilikina have a relationship dating back to pre-draft workouts in 2017.

Donovan Mitchell on Knicks' second-year guard Frank Ntilikina (2/3): “So when he gets a chance, and he's figured it out. He's a great defender. Like I said last year, he's one of the hardest guys I had to go against last year. He came in the second half of last game and shut me down when we played here.”

Donovan Mitchell, who had 30 points in front of 200 family and friends in Utah's win at MSG Wednesday, on Knicks' second-year guard Frank Ntilikina (1/3): "That kid is really good. People don't see that. A lot of times you don't see that in the way that he's playing. I think when he's given a chance – and it's easy to say he got one his rookie year – but it's your rookie year."

Arizona State's bench is shooting 100 percent from the field through the first half. The 10 points they've provided so far have been the main difference in building a substantial lead.
