Jeff Hornacek on getting Frank Ntilikina time at point guard: "We want him to get those reps. We don't want to put him in a situation where maybe it's a struggle. If some guy's going to pick him up full court we have other guys on the court who should be able to handle the ball." Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay and Trey Burke will all see increased minutes in the backcourt.

Jeff Hornacek on the Knicks' approach over the final 23 games: "Just giving the young guys more chances.... We'll throw them out there. They'll take some lumps probably at times but they've got to get through that. They've got to battle through and learn." You can expect Frank Ntilikina, Trey Burke, Emmanuel Mudiay, Damyean Dotson, Luke Kornet and Isaiah Hicks to get more playing time going forward.

Frank Ntilikina on meeting Knicks great Charles Oakley at All-Star weekend: "I'm thankful for what he said to me. He said (you) have a bright future and keep working on your game."

Jeff Hornacek on Joakim Noah: "We've moved on. I think maybe he's ready to move on and maybe have an opportunity somewhere else." Hornacek said the plan was for Noah not to return at the moment. He wasn't sure if Noah will continue to be away for the remainder of the season, saying that decision is up to management. Noah and the Knicks have mutual agreed that Noah be away from the team following an argument with Hornacek in which, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, player and coach had to be separated.
