The New York Knicks will get to see whether or not rookie Frank Ntilikina can add a spark to their offense after an 0-3 start to the season.
The New York Knicks will finally get to see what rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina can do during a regular season game.
Knicks’ head coach Jeff Hornacek told reporters that Ntilikina will play against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.

What’s really nice is that Ntilikina knows the plays.
BTW, Frank Ntilikina said that he has done a lot of homework, film study and knows the plays.

Hopefully Ntilikina will be able to get the Knicks back on track. I honestly don’t expect much since he’s a young rookie, but we can hope that things will improve.
New York will have their work cut out for them against a Nets team that is now 3-2 after a big win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.
The Knicks need a confidence booster after getting embarrassed by an injury depleted Boston Celtics team earlier in the week.
It will be interesting to see whether Horancek gives center Willy Hernangomez more minutes after looking good against the Celtics.
