Tom Thibodeau provides promising news on OG Anunoby’s injury status

Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau revealed the update following the 110-99 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, as SNY shared on X:

Anunoby has missed the last 14 games with the Knicks. He initially hurt his elbow in New York’s match against the Miami Heat last month. The hope is that the 26-year-old can return after elbow surgery in March.

Before he went down, the member of the second defensive team gave the Knicks a much-needed jolt. He set an NBA record for the highest plus/minus in a player’s first five games with a franchise. The Knicks went 12-2 in the 14 games in which he played.
