Knicks, here’s what Brunson’s return depends on

Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson missed his second straight game Monday with a calf contusion, but his return doesn’t appear far away. Coach Tom Thibodeau suggested the issue is more about “pain tolerance” than concern about the risk of reinjury, writes Stefan Bondy of the New York Post. “It’s an everyday thing,” Thibodeau said. Today it’s a little better. When he’s ready, he’s ready.”
