A pre-game census of which Knicks are alive.
Hello. The Knicks and the Nets play at Madison Square Garden tonight. The Knicks had shootaround this morning, and here are the injury updates going into tonight's game:
- Carmelo Anthony shot around on his bad ankle. He is, as usual, a game-time decision. If Melo elects to sit, Chris Copeland (called up from the BayHawks!) will start at power forward once more.
- Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby will remain unavailable tonight. Sheed says he aggravated an old injury and Camby just got a cortisone shot. Both are knitting you warm socks for Christmas.
- Steve Novak missed shootaround because of "flu-like symptoms" (Hey now, Steve!). Hopefully, he feels well enough to go tonight, but that's uncertain for the time being.
- Amar'e Stoudemire rested today. He'll practice with the BayHawks again tomorrow.
That's what's up. How about you guys? Everyone healthy? No plantar fasciiti or flu-like symptoms out there, I hope.
