New York Knicks’ forward OG Anunoby missed Monday’s 119-112 win against the Golden State Warriors due to a flare-up to a previous injury, and it is uncertain when he will return.

In December, Anunoby joined the Knicks team via a trade from the Toronto Raptors. However, on February 8, he had to undergo a procedure to remove a loose particle from his right elbow. Due to the surgery, he could not play throughout February as he recovered.

Anunoby made a comeback for three games, but unfortunately, the recent elbow injury flare-up has him sidelined once again.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Knicks’ head coach, Tom Thibodeau, has informed the media about Anunoby’s current status. Thibodeau revealed that Anunoby underwent an MRI on his elbow, which came back clear.

However, his timeline for return is uncertain, and it is doubtful that he will be ready to travel with the Knicks to face the Denver Nuggets on March 21.

The Toronto Raptors traded OG Anunoby, guard Malachi Flynn, and forward Precious Achiuwa to the New York Knicks in exchange for guard/forward RJ Barrett, guard Immanuel Quickley, and a 2024 second-round pick, as reported by USA Today Sports.

The Knicks had a successful record of 15-2 with OG Anunoby on the lineup after since December and without him, the Knicks have a 10-10 record while he recovers from injury.

Anunoby is averaging 35 minutes and 14.5 points per game so far this season with the Knicks.
