The Knicks defeated the Miami Heat on January 27, 125-109. However, the impressive victory ended in disappointing fashion as Julius Randle was injured after Jaime Jaquez Jr. attempted a charge.
According to Mark W. Sanchez of the New York Post, Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said he was “very” concerned about Randle’s injury.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the x-ray didn’t show much damage and that he suffered a dislocated shoulder.
Sanchez relayed what Randle’s co-star Jalen Brunson said after the game.
“We were happy we won,” Jalen Brunson said of the atmosphere in the locker room. “Hopefully, he’ll be fine. I’m still waiting to hear how it goes forward.
