Frank Ntilikina News
Charlotte Hornets guard Frank Ntilikina (hip) is questionable to play on Monday versus the Knicks. The defensive specialist appeared in Charlotte's rotation in back-to-back games last week but had to sit out Saturday's clash against Utah due to discomfort in his left hip. Ntilikina only recently made his season debut and has played 22 total minutes in three games, so the Hornets should do just fine without him on Monday.
Charlotte Hornets guard Frank Ntilikina (leg) was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of his left tibia after suffering the injury during Thursday's preseason meeting with the Boston Celtics. He will be re-evaluated in four weeks. The 2017 No. 8 overall pick hasn't had the career many had envisioned, averaging just 4.8 points and 2.2 assists. However, he has at least developed into a force on the defensive end. Nonetheless, Ntilikina still has higher expectations entering the 2023-24 campaign than in previous years, so he's someone to monitor once he's healthy.
Charlotte Hornets guard Frank Ntilikina has started work in training camp on a non-guaranteed one-year contract, but he appears to have a very good chance of making the team, as head coach Steve Clifford rated him highly. "He's an elite defender," Clifford said of Ntilikina Tuesday. "He has an elite skill. Frank fits our team well to me. He's played a lot of NBA minutes." Ntilikina has six years of experience in the NBA, having suited up for the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks. He's never really made noise fantasy-wise, but the Frenchman's defensive ability is something that's always going to be valued by teams.
Hornets guard Frank Ntilikina (hamstring) is in Charlotte for the team's training camp this fall, but his level of participation remains to be seen. The 25-year-old missed the World Cup with a hamstring injury, and he still appears to be working his way back from that. Ntilikina latched onto Charlotte on a one-year deal in early August to serve as backcourt depth behind LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier. The former first-round pick will battle with Theo Maledon for the backup point guard job, and enters the 2023-24 season without much to write home about after averaging a scant 2.9 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 47 games with the Dallas Mavericks last year.
