Luck isn’t on the Knicks’ side during the 2024 NBA Playoffs, at least as far as injuries are concerned.

O.G. Anunoby has been sidelined with a hamstring strain and Josh Hart is dealing with an abdominal strain
. New York is already without Julius Randle
, Mitchell Robinson
 and Bojan Bogdanovic
for the remainder of the postseason.

The Knicks will need all the help they can get as they prepare for Game 7 and Anunoby’s hamstring is on the mend.

New York has been without their two-way star since Game 2 against the Pacers. Will he be available for the win-or-go-home game on Sunday?

The Sporting News has you covered with the latest updates below.

What is O.G. Anunoby’s injury?

Anunoby went down with a hamstring strain late in the third quarter of Game 2 and was ruled out for the rest of the game with a sore left hamstring, TNT’s Chris Haynes reported.

The Knicks forward fell after a fast-break layup in the third quarter and struggled to get up. Anunoby eventually hobbled off the court on his own, but he exited the game and did not return.

New York finished the regular season 20-3 with Anunoby in the lineup.

How long is O.G. Anunoby out?

Anunoby has been sidelined since Game 2 but there is reportedly a chance he will be able to play in Game 7.

Anunoby is “likely to go through shootaround ahead of Game 7 vs. Indiana on Sunday to determine whether it’ll be possible for him to return to the lineup,” per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Sporting News will update with more information when made available.
