Obi Toppin Set to Miss 2-3 Weeks With Right Leg Injury

Just eight minutes into the New York Knicks’ victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, Obi Toppin exited the game with a right leg injury. He finished the contest with three points and one rebound.

After undergoing an MRI on Thursday, the team revealed that the Knicks forward suffered a non-displaced fracture on his right calf bone. The 2020 lottery pick is set to miss two to three weeks before getting re-evaluated.

Toppin has played in all of New York’s 25 games this season, averaging 7.7 points and 3.8 rebounds while logging 17 minutes per game. The 24-year-old has also shown early improvements in his shooting from behind the arc, shooting it at a career-high 35.1 percent from downtown.

The Knicks (12-13) are currently the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference and will take on the Charlotte Hornets in their next matchup on Friday.
