The New York Knicks can redeem themselves from their embarrassing 79-73 loss to the Sixers on Sunday with another game against their division rival on Tuesday. This time around, Philadelphia will have Tyrese Maxey, but New York could also get an injury boost.

OG Anunoby hasn't played since Jan. 27. In the same game that Julius Randle dislocated his shoulder, Anunoby injured his elbow. The injury was initially listed as elbow inflammation but was changed to bone spur irritation. After the Feb. 8 trade deadline, New York announced the wing had surgery.

Anunoby has since been cleared for contact and has been a full participant in practice. After being without three starters for several weeks, the Knicks could have the wing back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday. His return will be huge for a New York squad struggling to stay afloat.
