Jalen Brunson (sore foot) misses second straight game for Knicks


NEW YORK — New York Knicks guard Jalen Brunson missed a second consecutive game because of a sore left foot, sitting out Tuesday night against the Charlotte Hornets.

Brunson had been listed as questionable to return, but Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said he still wasn’t quite ready, saying the point guard’s status was day-to-day.

Brunson will be going on the Knicks’ upcoming road trip, which starts Thursday at Sacramento, Thibodeau said.

The Knicks overcame Brunson’s absence Sunday in Boston, when Immanuel Quickley moved into the starting lineup and scored a career-high 38 points in 55 minutes of a double-overtime victory that extended New York’s winning streak to nine.

Brunson was the Eastern Conference Player of the Month in February. He’s averaging 23.9 points.
