Jalen Brunson Knocked Out With Knee Injury in First Quarter of Game vs. Cavaliers

_______________________

During the game that took place on Sunday against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Jalen Brunson was unable to even make it one minute into the game before he needed to be assisted off the court.  

Brunson was kneeling on the ground after sustaining what the New York Knicks would later refer to as a "sore left knee" just 38 seconds into the game that they were playing in Cleveland vs Cleveland.  

Brunson made a spin through the lane in order to get open, and after he popped up a shot, he came down awkwardly and was unable to get up on his own.  

Initially, Brunson was rated as having a dubious likelihood of returning, but that rating was later changed to "out."  

A Knicks team that has already been suffering with a number of ailments across the roster, including Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, and OG Anunoby, has been dealt a difficult blow by this news.  

The New York Yankees are currently in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, but they are only one game away from finishing in the play-in spots.
