Julius Randle might not be the only key player the New York Knicks are without in Game 4 on Sunday in Philadelphia. Mitchell Robinson missed the second half of Game 3 and left Wells Fargo Center in a walking boot.

The Knicks center was wrapped up in several controversial Joel Embiid plays, including the one where the Sixers center pulled Robinson's legs out from under him. It's unclear which play Robinson re-injured the same ankle he had surgery on in December.

Precious Achiuwa played in the second half of Game 3 after Robinson left the game. If Robinson doesn't play in Game 4, Jericho Sims will likely play some minutes, especially if Isaiah Hartenstein and Achiuwa get in foul trouble guarding Embiid.

As Deuce McBride said, expect New York to be the team to throw the first punch on Sunday. Embiid defended his Game 3 actions by saying the Knicks aren't the only ones who can play physically. It's not as if New York needed extra playoff fuel, but the reigning MVP gave them some anyway.
