Jalen Brunson, the New York Knicks guard, had been listed as questionable for their Sunday night game against the Boston Celtics due to a left foot injury.

Unfortunately, he was later ruled out due to the injury.

Brunson turned his ankle in the third quarter of the Knicks' recent game against the Miami Heat and has been experiencing significant discomfort ever since.

Despite only being in his first season with the Knicks, Brunson has been magnificent, with many believing he was an All-Star snub this season.

He has averaged an impressive 23.9 points and 6.2 assists per game while also being very efficient, shooting 48.7% from the field and 41.1% from 3-point range.

He also excels at getting to the free-throw line, with his 360 free-throw attempts this season ranking 17th in the league.

Although the Celtics are already dealing with injuries to Malcolm Brogdon and Robert Williams III, they still have the star-studded wing duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

As Boston goes where they go, the Knicks' success or failure is more dependent on who suits up for the Celtics on Sunday rather than who isn't.

Nonetheless, the absence of Brunson could make things easier for the Knicks, who will need other players to step up in his absence.
It remains to be seen how long Brunson will be out, and the Knicks will be hoping he can return to action soon.

In the meantime, they will be hoping to continue their good form and pick up a win against a strong Celtics team.

The game promises to be an exciting encounter, with both teams eager to come out on top.
