I'm in an airport on shitty internet, but here's a quick update while I still have a borrowed wireless signal. Carmelo Anthony and his sprained ankle, though they are still listed as "questionable" for tonight's game against the Cavaliers, are not expected to participate. Marc Berman:
Yeah, man. Totally resting up for Lin.
We'll see what happens, but I think it does make sense for Melo to take a couple extra days to rest the ankle. If you just go by performance this season, the Knicks should be able to handle the Cavs without him. If you go by the way the Cavs have historically bedeviled the Knicks, New York is due for a loss either way. More later.
