Journalist Marc Berman reports Carmelo Anthony's back is really bothering him.
Unless something changes, it seems Melo will miss the rest of the road trip.
Somehow, the Knicks still list him as "doubtful," which is silly.
Tonight, Melo will spend the night watching Knicks-Mavericks from his hotel room in Dallas.
There's no reason to push the guy, even with the team struggling.
Amar'e Stoudemire's already shown us that back issues aren't to be trifled with.
Now we're left to wonder if this is a more chronic thing that could affect the rest of Melo's season.
