Tom Thibodeau offers 3 words on OG Anunoby’s Game 7 status for the Knicks

For the first time in nearly 20 years, the New York Knicks are hosting a Game 7 at Madison Square Garden. But whether or not this will include OG Anunoby remains up in the air.

After losing Game 6 to the Indiana Pacers, Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau was asked about Anunoby’s chances of returning for Game 7.

“Whatever the doctors say,” he told reporters after the match.

And when asked to elaborate on what medical staff say, Thibodeau simply said “day by day.”

Anunoby, who has been out since the second game of the series, is dealing with a strained left hamstring. He averaged 16.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 1 steal per game in the playoffs.

New York is 6-2 when playing this postseason and 1-3 when not.

It’s safe to say his potential return will be monitored by both sides as a potential x-factor for Game 7 on May 19.

But until something breaks on the injury front, the Knicks will have to assume they’ll enter the elimination game exactly who they left Game 6 with.

This could mean they will also be without Josh Hart.
