It doesn't sound like they did much practicing-- if any-- on Saturday.

So, there's a chance, but today's events suggest it's a slim chance:
Tyson didnt practice and doesnt look like he will play tomorrow.— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) March 16, 2013
Carmelo Anthony is not with the team. He left the gym a few minutes ago.— Nate Taylor (@ByNateTaylor) March 16, 2013
Tyson Chandler said he feels fortunate to only have a bruise. Says he & team will decide tomorrow's game in the morning.— Nate Taylor (@ByNateTaylor) March 16, 2013
Melo was supposed to test his knee out this afternoon. It sounds like he did that, but didn't stick around to describe his progress to reporters. The overall sense seems to be that neither will play Sunday, and that's what Mike Woodson is presuming.
Like Joe said earlier, I'm fine with that. Better to get extra rest than to push for a game the Knicks probably aren't going to win anyway. I just continue to hope the Anthoknee and the...uh...Tysoknee(?) will be okay long-term. Beyond Melo getting his drained, we haven't heard that they will be. We haven't heard that they won't be. We haven't heard much at all.
