Anthony has been hampered by a knee injury.
Carmelo Anthony exited Monday's game early because of a tumble/flare-up of a knee injury that had reportedly been bothering him for a little while. He'll have the knee looked at again before Wednesday's game against the Pistons, but here's the official-est update we're gonna get for now:
Carmelo Anthony has a stiff/sore right knee and is listed as questionable for tomorrow night as Detroit.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) March 5, 2013
So, the Knicks still can't or won't tell us why the right knee is stiff/sore, but it is those things. As far as we know, Melo had an MRI a few days ago, but hasn't had one since taking that weird fall during the second quarter in Cleveland. As we speak, the Knicks are rubbing the knee with a Magic Eight Ball.
My guess, since you were totally asking for one, is that Melo won't play in Detroit. Let us pray (and/or sacrifice a couple lambs to the basketball gods) this isn't anything serious.
