Knicks veteran dealing with multiple injuries after Game 4 vs. Sixers

While the New York Knicks were fortunate to have success over the Philadelphia 76ers in the first four games of their first-round series, they haven’t had much luck in the health department as of late.

Heading into the playoffs, the Knicks were aware that they would be missing their veteran forward, Julius Randle. While Randle hoped to return in time for the postseason, a setback cut his season short.

The Knicks entered Games 1 and 2 of the series with only Randle on the injury report. That changed when veteran center Mitchell Robinson found himself downgraded before Game 3.

Robinson has been dealing with an ankle injury. Although he was cleared to play in Game 3, his time off the bench would last less than 12 minutes. After experiencing ankle discomfort during the first half, the Knicks ruled Robinson out for the remainder of Game 3.

After the match, it was revealed that Robinson was dealing with a sprained ankle. The veteran missed practice Saturday and was downgraded to questionable for Game 4.

Ultimately, Robinson was ruled out on Sunday. And once again, the Knicks found themselves in a difficult situation regarding another key contributor.

Prior to Game 4, it was revealed that New York forward Bojan Bogdanovic suffered a wrist injury this postseason. Although he could have undergone surgery to repair his injury problems, Bogdanovic planned to push through. Unfortunately on Sunday afternoon he fell with a second injury.

Just a minute into Game 4, Bogdanovic suffered an ankle injury. The Knicks diagnosed the veteran with a contusion and ruled him out for the rest of the afternoon. It’s unclear how serious the setback is, but Bogdanovic could become the second Knicks player to deal with a setback during the series.
