Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler are questionable for Sunday

It doesn't sound like they did much practicing-- if any-- on Saturday.

The Knicks just finished up practice at UCLA. The updates on Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler are scant. First of all, both have been deemed "questionable" for Sunday's game against the Clippers:

So, there's a chance, but today's events suggest it's a slim chance:

Melo was supposed to test his knee out this afternoon. It sounds like he did that, but didn't stick around to describe his progress to reporters. The overall sense seems to be that neither will play Sunday, and that's what Mike Woodson is presuming.

Like Joe said earlier, I'm fine with that. Better to get extra rest than to push for a game the Knicks probably aren't going to win anyway. I just continue to hope the Anthoknee and the...uh...Tysoknee(?) will be okay long-term. Beyond Melo getting his drained, we haven't heard that they will be. We haven't heard that they won't be. We haven't heard much at all.
