The most recent New Orleans Pelicans and New York Knicks Injuries Report

The Knicks (47-33) are the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference and will face the fourth-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the playoffs.

At the moment, New York is concentrating on bettering its health.

Brunson will not play against the Pelicans on Friday due to a hand injury.

Now that the Knicks have clinched a postseason spot, they can afford to sit Brunson for a second straight game as he recovers from a right hand injury.

Brunson will get his final shot to play this season on Sunday against Indiana, while Immanuel Quickley, Quentin Grimes, and Josh Hart are candidates to get greater run once again.

Against Indiana, Immanuel Quickley scored a career-high 39 points, and Quentin Grimes scored 36 points.

Julius Randle, the team’s leading scorer and rebounder at forward (25.1 ppg, 10.0 rpg), will miss at least the next two games with a left ankle sprain.

We beat Indiana 138-129 on Wednesday night without RJ Barrett (sickness) and Jalen Brunson (hand).

Obi Toppin scored 32 points, and Mitchell Robinson added 14 points and 16 rebounds, leading to a 52-37 rebounding advantage for the Knicks.

The Pelicans will be playing to improve their playoff seeding, while the Knicks will be using their home finale against the Pacers to hone their skills for the postseason.

We have to look to New Orleans now,” Thibodeau said. We’re saving our best for the postseason.

With only two games left in the regular season, the New York Knicks have already been eliminated from the playoffs.

The New Orleans Pelicans, on the other hand, know that their season won’t end when the regular season does.

After Friday night’s regular season home finale against New York, they will know more about what they want to do next.

With their 138-131 overtime win over Memphis on Wednesday, the Pelicans (41-39) locked up at least the No. 9 seed in the Western Conference play-in round.

After falling behind by 19 points in the second half, New Orleans came roaring back to take the lead in the fourth quarter. However, in the last five seconds of regulation, they gave up that lead and sent the game into overtime.

The Pelicans scored the first 10 points of overtime, and two 3-point shots from Trey Murphy III helped them win in the end.

The plan for the Pelicans still depends a lot on Brandon Ingram. He has a ticket to tonight’s game against the Knicks as well.

When New Orleans goes to Minnesota on Sunday, it will be the end of their regular season. They could finish anywhere from fifth to ninth in the West, depending on how the rest of the teams do. Its standing has gone up because it has won eight of its last ten games.

Keep adding players to the list of people who won’t be able to play against the Knicks on Friday.
