Anunoby did not start the second half the with Hoosiers.
It’s unclear whether the injury was to his knee or to his ankle—which he’s had trouble with throughout the season—but a player going down without contact is never a good sign.
Anunoby is averaging 11.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game, and is shooting 56.5 percent from the floor. He’s considered a potential top 10 pick in this year’s NBA draft.
