The New York Knicks fell behind 2-1 in their series against the Miami Heat with a blowout loss in Miami on Saturday.

To add insult to injury, star guard Jalen Brunson also came out worse for wear. Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters after the game that Brunson “may have tweaked” his ankle in the loss. If he had to miss time, it would be disastrous for the Knicks as they try to fight back into the series.

What is Jalen Brunson’s injury?

Brunson has been banged up throughout the Knicks’ postseason run, but his current injury is believed to have been suffered in Game 1. However, he toughed it out and took the floor in Games 2 and 3, dropping 30 and 20 points, respectively.

He was seen limping after taking a hard fall during Game 3. Thibodeau told reporters that Brunson “may have tweaked” his ankle, but that he had yet to get the medical report. Brunson’s injury status for Game 4 remains unclear.

For his part, Brunson said he’d be good to go for Monday, per ESPN’s Nick Friedell.

Through eight playoff games, Brunson is averaging 24.4 points, 5.1 assists, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.8 steals in 38 minutes per game.

How long will Jalen Brunson be out?

With the Knicks’ season hanging in the balance, it’s safe to assume Brunson will suit up and play if at all possible. He says he’ll be fine for Monday’s Game 4, so expect to see him back in the lineup.
