OG Anunoby cleared for non-contact drills

Help is on the way for Brunson as Knicks defensive ace, OG Anunoby, nears his return.

Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau revealed that their prized trade acquisition has been cleared for non-contact on-court activities following a procedure to remove a loose fragment in his right elbow.

“He can shoot, dribble and pass. No contact [drills] yet, but that’s the next step,” Thibodeau told reporters before the Knicks lost to the Golden State Warriors on Feb. 29.
