OG Anunoby's Tennis Elbow Woes Hamper Knicks' Playoff Hopes

OG Anunoby, a key player for the New York Knicks, has been diagnosed with right elbow tendinopathy, commonly known as tennis elbow. This revelation comes after the Knicks initially listed his absence as "injury management."

Anunoby has been sidelined for the past seven games due to this injury. He last saw action on March 16 against the Sacramento Kings. Coach Tom Thibodeau has stated that Anunoby has been experiencing inflammation, a common symptom of tendinopathy.

The 26-year-old forward previously missed 18 games after undergoing elbow surgery in February. He returned for a brief three-game stretch starting on March 12, but the injury has resurfaced.

Anunoby's return date remains uncertain, casting doubt over his availability for the remainder of the regular season and potential playoff run. The Knicks are also coping with the absence of star forward Julius Randle, who has been out for 29 games after dislocating his shoulder in January.
