NBA News: New York Knicks star Obi Toppin suffers a calf strain
Obi Toppin was selected 8th overall by the New York Knicks in the 2020 NBA Draft. Up to this point, the 22-year-old has not been spectacular for the franchise but has shown the potential to be a superstar in the NBA one day.
However, despite his improving performances, the Knicks will need to put a pin on any plans they have for Toppin. It has now been confirmed by NBA insiders that Obi Toppin has suffered a serious strain to his right calf and will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days by the franchise.
