Jalen Brunson QUESTIONABLE, Shake Milton to Debut vs. Hawks? - Knicks Injury Tracker

_______________________

Shake Milton will be able to play in his first game for the New York Knicks on Tuesday night when they host the Atlanta Hawks at Madison Square Garden (7:30 p.m. ET, MSG), according to Ian Begley of SNY.   

After playing four games with the Detroit Pistons, Milton cleared waivers and is now officially signed with the Knicks. He used to play for the Philadelphia 76ers.  

The New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson will be marked as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks because he hurt his knee.   

It may be the latest sign that the Knicks have avoided a big medical disaster when it comes to their star player's health. He had to leave Sunday's game in Cleveland after the first minute.

"Brunson has avoided serious knee injury, as was the hope following last night’s game in Cleveland," according to Begley.  

An apparent knee injury forced Jalen Brunson to leave Sunday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers early. Brunson was injured in Sunday's first quarter when going up for a shot against Donovan Mitchell.   

The Knicks said publicly that Brunson had a "sore left knee." At first, they said Brunson might be able to come back, but they have since said he won't.  

The Knicks have said that Jalen Brunson (neck) will be able to play in Thursday's game against the Golden State Warriors (7:30 p.m. ET, TNT), according to Ian Begley of SNY.  

Brunson couldn't play against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday because he hurt his neck.The Golden State Warriors play the New York Knicks on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT. Isaiah Hartenstein will likely be back for that game.   

Hartenstein has missed four of the last seven games with a sore Achilles tendon, but his name is not on the initial injury report for the visit of the Warriors. Jalen Brunson (neck spasms) is listed as uncertain, and Steph Curry is on his way.  

The New York Knicks will be without two more players for their game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET, MSG). They will already be without OG Anunoby and Julius Randle.  

Author Ian Begley of SNY says that Jalen Brunson (neck) and Isaiah Hartenstein (Achilles) will both miss the second half of the Knicks' back-to-back games.   

After getting rough with the Detroit Pistons on Monday, Brunson woke up with neck pain, according to Thibodeau. Hartenstein's sore Achilles injury is also acting up again, he said.
