It just got a little harder for the New York Knicks to stage a comeback in Game 7.

Down 15 going into the half, the Knicks ruled out wing OG Anunoby for the remainder of Game 7 against the Indiana Pacers.

Anunoby started the game after missing the previous four contests in the tight second-round series with a hamstring injury he suffered in Game 2.

He played four minutes to start the game and looked sluggish before subbing out and returning. He finished with five points on 2-for-2 from the field.

Anunoby came out of Game 2 at the 3:47 mark of the third quarter after running a fastbreak. He appeared to come up awkwardly after going for a lay-up and instead opted to toss the ball off the backboard. He wound up on the baseline, took some time to get up and went back to the team’s locker room

The former Raptors forward was listed as questionable ahead of the game but took part in the team’s pre-game workout and shootaround before being cleared to play.
