Jeff Hornacek sat down with Emmanuel Mudiay at the end of the point guard’s second practice as a Knick. Mudiay wasn’t done with his workout though. He still had some sprints to run. Mudiay is trying to improve his conditioning because he will see a jump in minutes from when he was with Denver. He likely will replace Jarrett Jack in the starting lineup Thursday when the Knicks face the Magic. Mudiay has been working with the first team in the Knicks’ two practices since returning from All-Star break. Hornacek wouldn’t reveal his starters, but Mudiay indicated he would be one of them. “Definitely means something to me,” Mudiay said. “I’m not going to take it for granted. I came in as a lottery pick so I was kind of handed the spot and stuff like that. So the fact that I’m in that position again it’s a blessing. Thank God for it. I just have to take full advantage.” After being taken with the seventh pick by Denver in 2015, Mudiay started 66 games with the Nuggets as a rookie. Since then, his starts and minutes have decreased. Mudiay, acquired two weeks ago in a three-team trade with Denver and Dallas, didn’t start a game with the Nuggets this season and only averaged 17.9 minutes. But the Knicks (23-36) are going all-in on their youth movement now. That means more playing time the final 23 games for all their young players, particularly Mudiay and rookie Frank Ntilikina. Hornacek probably won’t start Ntilikina alongside Mudiay right away. But that’s something he could do eventually. It’s also possible he could change the starting point guard from time to time. Trey Burke also is expected to play more.
