Knicks point guard Derrick Rose remains out due to health and safety protocols, and will miss Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Rose last played on Feb. 28 against his former team, the Detroit Pistons. He had 14 points and five assists in the win, but would miss the team's next two games against the San Antonio Spurs and Pistons again.

Frank Ntilikina started in Rose's place and performed well against the Spurs, scoring 13 points including going 3-of-3 from beyond the arc. He saw less time against the Pistons, but had another good shooting performance, making three three-pointers.

Immanuel Quickley continued to score the ball well coming off the bench. He went for 26 points in the loss to the Spurs, but made 6-of-13 threes in 29 minutes of action.

Rose has averaged 24.6 minutes per game since being traded to New York, averaging 12.5 points and 4.9 assists per contest.
