Carmelo Anthony sprained his ankle, Raymond Felton strained his groin

That'll kill the buzz of a win.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Knicks won, so that's kinda good, but they lost 40% of their starting lineup to injury, so that's less good. The prior and scarier injury was Carmelo Anthony landing funny while fighting for an offensive rebound and turning his left ankle. The Knicks are calling it a sprained left ankle. He did not return, and they say he'll be reevaluated on Tuesday.

Raymond Felton, meanwhile, was jumpin' around and all of a sudden came up grimacing and hobbling. The Knicks are calling it a strained right groin, and he didn't return either. This was his first night back after a couple games missed with that hamstring issue.

As of right now, I haven't seen any postgame words. I'll add relevant things if I see 'em. Feel better, gentlemen.

Update: This is only the post-game update you need:

Both Melo and Felton will be reevaluated in the morning.
