Jeff Hornacek says Frank Ntilikina will not play on Tuesday against Boston due to an ankle injury. Ntilikina missed most of practice Monday but Hornacek said the rookie's lateral movement has improved and the Knicks hope to have him back for Friday's game against Brooklyn. Ntilikina has missed two games with the ankle sprain, which he suffered in practice Friday. He missed the final four games of the preseason with a knee contusion and the entire summer league with a similar injury. Hornacek said the organization isn't worried about Ntilikina, whom they selected with the No. 8 overall pick, being injury-prone. The coach said the 19-year-old's ailments are a result of playing with maximum effort. "He's playing as hard as he can .... I can't complain about that."

Mickey Callaway is to be introduced Mon. as the 21st manager in Mets history. Mickey Cochrane, who won a pennant & a W.S. in the first 2 seasons of his 1934-'38 run with the Detroit Tigers, and Mickey Vernon, who led the expansion Washington Senators from 1961-'63, are the only 2 MLB managers with that first name. Cochrane, a Hall of Fame catcher, was a player-mgr for most of his tenure.

Jets film review: I had no problem with the decision to try for a game-winning drive with 47 seconds left and the ball at the 15 (and three timeouts), but the play call was terrible. And so was the execution by QB Josh McCown. The Jets should've tried a safe play on first down -- a draw or a pass to RB Matt Forte. Miami played a four-man box, so a run probably would've picked up decent yardage. The middle was open, so a short throw there would've picked up a nice chunk. Instead, McCown threw into the teeth of the defense and was intercepted. Miami dropped eight and rushed three.

Another concern for Giants is Janoris Jenkins' ankle, per source. He finished the game but was hobbled. Plan was for him to be checked Monday.

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa, who suffered a season-ending neck injury in training camp, tweeted that he went for his two-month, post-surgery visit Monday and "the Dr. said my x-ray looked really good." Enunwa had a bulging disk repaired after a non-contact injury in a scrimmage. He expects to be ready for next season.

Frank Ntilikina (ankle) did not practice today. The guess here is he is unlikely to play on Tuesday against Boston.

Attorney Alex Spiro, who represented Knicks great Charles Oakley in a criminal matter last year, is leaving his current firm, Brafman & Associates to join international firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP. Oakley, under Spiro's guidance, accepted a deal to have charges stemming from a February incident at Madison Square Garden dismissed. Oakley is pursuing civil litigation against Madison Square Garden and chief executive James Dolan. It is unclear how Spiro's move impacts Oakley's litigation, if at all. Spiro also defended NBA forward Thabo Sefolosha in 2015 when he was cleared of charges resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Sefolosha settled a suit against the New York Police Department for $4 million.

Jets defensive snap analysis (based on 73): DL -- Leo Williams 60, Mo Wilkerson 54, Kony Ealy 33, Steve McLendon 20, Ed Stinson 11, Mike Pennel 10; LB -- Demario Davis 73, Darron Lee 60, Josh Martin 40, Jordan Jenkins 38, David Bass 29, Julian Stanford 13; DB -- Jamal Adams 73, Mo Claiborne 73, Marcus Maye 73, Buster Skrine 70, Darryl Roberts 57, Rontez Miles 8, Terrence Brooks 8. Analysis: Davis has yet to miss a snap. Impressive. A full load for Wilkerson despite no practice. Stanford spelled Lee (cramps).

Jets offensive snap analysis (based on 56): RB -- Matt Forte 28, Bilal Powell 21, Eli McGuire 7, Lawrence Thomas 5; WR -- Jermaine Kearse 51, Robby Anderson 45, Jeremy Kerley 29, ArDarius Stewart 10, Chad Hansen 6; TE -- Austin Seferian-Jenkins 42, Eric Tomlinson 34. Analysis: The backfield situation is frustrating for fantasy owners because the personnel deployment is unpredictable. Powell started, but ended up with fewer snaps than Forte. Kerley' usage was down, but they more two tight-end packages than usual -- an extra blocker to deal with Miami's pass rush.
