Knicks update OG Anunoby’s status for Game 6

Going into Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers, the New York Knicks knew they would be without OG Anunoby. But beyond that, his availability was unknown.

Not anymore.

In the NBA’s final injury report submission on May 16, Anunoby is listed as out for Game 6 due to his left hamstring strain.

Things can always change over the 24 hours leading up to tip-off, but an Anunoby sighting is unlikely for Game 6.

Coach Tom Thibodeau didn’t reveal much when speaking to reporters on May 16.

“Do a little more,” Thibodeau told reporters . “But basically we’ll see where he is tomorrow…Only on the pitch, that’s all. Just light work, very light.

Anunoby’s injury came in his best offensive performance in a Knicks uniform. He was up to 28 points before exiting Game 2.

ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski set Game 6 as the next point in Anunoby’s recovery on an episode of NBA Countdown.

“The Knicks certainly, with this left hamstring, are going to err on the side of caution,” Wojnarowski told ESPN’s Malika Andrews on May 13. “There are two days off before a potential Game 6 on Friday. This would be the next possible point of reference for OG Anunoby.
