Haliburton underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed no ligament damage to his injured left knee, but he's likely to miss the remainder of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Haliburton will avoid surgery, but he won't be able to make a full recovery from the injury with just a week and a half left in the season. Assuming that's the case, Haliburton's rookie season should still be considered a resounding success. Despite being drafted 12th overall, he'll likely finish third in Rookie of the Year voting behind LaMelo Ball and Anthony Edwards. In 30.1 minutes per game, Haliburton averaged 13.0 points on 47.2 percent shooting from the field, while also chipping in 5.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
