New York Knicks, Jalen Brunson injury, Grizzlies, react
"Jalen Brunson suffers ankle injury against Grizzlies, Knicks react. Will he be ready for NBA All-Star game?"
Jalen Brunson experienced a frightening moment during the game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night, as he rolled his ankle in the fourth quarter. Despite the Knicks ultimately winning the game, Brunson did not return to play for the rest of the game.
Following the game, both Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau and players reacted to Brunson's ankle injury. Thibodeau mentioned that he did not speak to Brunson about the injury and did not believe there was any chance of him returning to the game. On the other hand, Donte DiVincenzo expressed a more positive outlook on the injury, stating that he is not too concerned about it.
DiVincenzo, who has played with Brunson for a long time, expressed his confidence in Brunson's toughness and resilience, indicating that he is not worried about his teammate's injury.
Unfortunately, the timing of the injury is less than ideal for Brunson, as this season marks his first selection as an NBA All-Star. With the All-Star game approaching in less than two weeks, there is no indication of when Brunson will be able to return to play. Hopefully, the injury is not serious, and he will have the opportunity to participate in the All-Star game.
The Memphis Grizzlies, who have experienced their fair share of injuries this season, can empathize with Brunson's situation. Injuries are never easy for any team to endure, and it is certainly a challenging time for Brunson.
