The New York Knicks are in the thick of a bru­tal play­off bat­tle against the Indi­ana Pac­ers. Things got even tenser when start­ing cen­ter Isa­iah Harten­stein went down with a left shoul­der injury in Game 4.

But Knicks fans can breathe a sigh of relief! X‑rays on Harten­stein’s shoul­der came back neg­a­tive. Phew!

Harten­stein took a nasty tum­ble after scor­ing in the sec­ond quar­ter of the Knicks’ 121–89 loss (ouch!). The Pac­ers tied the series at 2–2. By half­time, the 25-year-old big man was strug­gling to lift his arm, rais­ing red flags.

“X‑rays look good,” Harten­stein said after the game. “Maybe just a pinched nerve. My hand gets numb some­times, but I’ll be alright. It’s minor, some­thing we can fix easily.”

The Knicks des­per­ate­ly need Harten­stein healthy. They’re already miss­ing a ton of front­court play­ers due to injuries, includ­ing Julius Ran­dle, Mitchell Robin­son, and Bojan Bog­danovic (out for the rest of the playoffs).

“We’re all bat­tling through stuff,” Harten­stein said. “Every­one’s got­ta find a way.”

This good news is a ray of hope for the Knicks. They’ll need a healthy Harten­stein back in action for Game 5 at home on Tues­day night. With the series tied 2–2, any more injuries could spell dis­as­ter for the Knicks. So yeah, that neg­a­tive X‑ray is a HUGE win!
