Carmelo Anthony showed up and spoke to Knicks reporters at Knicks practice this morning. After shooting and running a bit, here's what he had to say:
Melo said he was able to run a little bit today after ankle sprain last week. 'I never took a fall like that. I think I got lucky.'
Carmelo Anthony: "Knee is fine. Hip is fine. Right not it’s just my ankle. It’s badly bruised."
"I might come back tonight & get a little light workout in & tomorrow AM. So, I will probably be a game time decision at this point" Melo
The general feeling from those who spoke to Melo is that, with the pain and swelling in the ankle, he's unlikely to be ready for the Nets tomorrow night. We'll see. No sense in rushing, but the Knicks could certainly use him back in the lineup.
