Knicks' OG Anunoby: Hamstring Injury Update

Anunoby Expected to Miss Game 6

The New York Knicks are facing a crucial Game 6 matchup against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Unfortunately, they'll have to do it without their key player, OG Anunoby. The 26-year-old forward is dealing with a hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst reported that Anunoby is already out of the pool and doing some court work for the Knicks. While his presence on the court is a positive sign, it's unlikely that he'll be available for Game 6. However, there's hope for the Knicks if they advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Possible Return in the Conference Finals

If the Knicks secure one more victory and advance, Anunoby could potentially make a comeback in the next round. His light work on the court indicates progress, and the team is optimistic about his recovery. Should the Knicks face either the Boston Celtics or the Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference finals, Anunoby might be ready to contribute.

Adjustments in the Starting Lineup

During Anunoby's absence, the Knicks have made adjustments to their lineup. Precious Achiuwa started in Games 3 and 4, but in Game 5, Miles McBride entered the starting five as part of a small-ball lineup. The team is adapting to the situation and hoping for a strong performance in Game 6.
