Frank Ntilikina was one of the last players on the court Thursday at Knicks practice, and appeared to be running and cutting with ease as he moved through drills.

But the second-year guard may still need a few more days before he returns to game action after spraining his left ankle last Friday in Los Angeles.

a€œI feel better,a€ Ntilikina said. a€œI feel better every day and making improvements. So Ia€™m happy about that. I was able to do some workouts, drills where I was moving pretty good. Wea€™re going to see how it is the next few days, if it makes more improvements.a€

Ntilikina called himself a€œdoubtfula€ for the Knicksa€™ return to the Garden on Friday against the Pacers. He is getting treatment daily, but said he could still feel the injury during practice.

a€œYeah, ita€™s still here,a€ said Ntilikina, who is averaging six points and 2.5 assists per game. a€œNow is the difficult part where you have to go through the last pains and stiffness. Thata€™s the goal for the next few days. Wea€™re going to see.a€

While the Frenchman said the Knicksa€™ Jan. 17 game in London is important, and he would like to be back by then, he is focused on returning to any game as quick as he can.
