Some updates on the state of the Knicks' walking wounded heading into tonight's game.

USA Today Sports

Good day! The Knicks had their shootaround for Knicks-Rockets this morning and the reporters in attendance came away with a whole bunch of updates about several injured Knicks. Here they are:

- Carmelo Anthony was not at shootaround (or at least didn't stick around for the media's entrance). He'll make a game-time decision. If he does not play, either Chris Copeland (who ran with the starters this morning) or James White (who didn't play a single minute in the last game, so I wouldn't bet on him, but I guess you never know with match-ups) will get the start at power forward.

- Raymond Felton has a bone bruise on his right hand now, too, but he'll play. I think he's just telling us that to preemptively excuse a bunch of missed jumpers tonight. (I'm kidding. I appreciate your doggedness, Ray.)

- Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby are both out tonight.

- Amar'e Stoudemire has not yet been cleared to practice in full (he's been shooting and doing individual work and stuff), but Mike Woodson sounded optimistic today that he might be cleared as soon as...TOMORROW. !!!

Cool.
