NBA Daily Injury Report (May 9): Emmanuel Quikley is out
It is news that Emmanuel Quikley (23, 190cm) will miss Game 4.
On the 7th (Korean time), Quikley suffered a left ankle injury during a loose ball contest with Bam Adebayo (25, 206cm) about 6 minutes after the end of the third game. Quikley, who limped his left foot and complained of excruciating pain, was unable to digest the game any longer and exited the locker room.
Quikley was placed on the injured list in a ‘doubtful’ condition with a greater possibility of absence than appearance. Given that he was listed as doubtful, it can be assumed that the injury was by no means minor. In the end, New York clubs, including coach Tom Thibodou, confirmed Quikley’s absence with an hour before the fourth game.
New York, ahead of Game 4, faced bad news. Quikley took part in 81 regular league games, averaging 14.9 points (FG 44.8%), 4.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists, taking charge of the New York bench. Of course, entering the playoffs, the average score and field goal rate are only 7.8 points and 33.3%, respectively, and the sense of field fighting has been weakened, but if Quikley, a key member of the bench, is missing, New York is expected to suffer a considerable blow.
New York, with a series record of 1 win and 2 losses, is driven to the edge of elimination if it loses even the 4th game.
On the contrary,카지노사이트 Miami took an easy game as Butler’s score exploded with Adebayo inside control in the last game 3. On the contrary, New York failed to block the bottom of the goal in Miami, which led to the sluggish performance of Julius Randle (28, 203cm), giving up the lead in the series. For New York, while bench ace Quikley is absent, Randle, who was sluggish with only 10 points in the third game and a field goal rate of 26.6%, is highly likely to win the fourth game only when he revives.
Likewise, Miami also has eight players listed on the injured list, and the physical condition of the main players is not normal. Fortunately, while Jimmy Butler (34, 201cm) and Caleb Martin (27, 193cm), who were listed as questionable (unclear to participate), are known to have no major problems in the game, the series between the two teams depends on how few injured players there are in the East. It has emerged as a key variable that will determine advancement to the conference finals. [Injury update as of May 9, 7:30 am, Korea time]
