New York Knicks superstar guard Jalen Brunson left Game 7 against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday afternoon due to a fractured left hand, the team announced during the fourth quarter.

While it is unknown when the injury occurred, Brunson was seen swiping down on a layup attempt by Tyrese Haliburton earlier in the game. In doing so, Brunson's left hand made firm contact with Haliburton's knee, and the All-Star guard immediately grabbed at his hand. After checking back into the game with 3:16 left in the third quarter, Brunson was immediately subbed out 14 seconds later and went to the locker room.

Brunson, who finished inside the top five of the MVP voting this season, joins the lengthy injury report the Knicks have had to deal with throughout the postseason. He left Game 7 on Sunday with 17 points and nine assists in 25 total minutes.

Knicks forward OG Anunoby, who missed four straight games due to a hamstring injury, attempted to play in Game 7 and he looked to be moving well early on in the first quarter. After scoring five points in five minutes, Anunoby checked out of the game and he did not return during the first half. Anunoby was ruled out for the remainder of the game shortly after the start of the second half. The Knicks were also without Julius Randle, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Mitchell Robinson. Josh Hart was also questionable entering Sunday due to an abdominal strain.

This had been an incredible run for Brunson leading the Knicks in the postseason despite all of the injury concerns they faced. He joined LeBron James (8), Michael Jordan (7 and 6), Allen Iverson (6), Bernard King (6), Hakeem Olajuwon (5), and Shaquille O'Neal (5) as the only players in league history to score at least 40 points in five different games in a single postseason.

The 2023-24 season as a whole was certainly a successful one for the Knicks. On the verge of making the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2000, Brunson has put the Knicks back on radar for every other team in the Eastern Conference. It won't be long until they break through and get back to the conference finals.

The Knicks will provide further updates on Brunson's injury and whether or not he will require offseason surgery when apprporiate.
