Arron Afflalo unlikely to play this week and other Monday practice notes

Stop being injured!

William Hauser-USA TODAY Sports

With the Knicks' first preseason game rapidly approaching, the time seems right for a good old-fashioned injury update. If you had Arron Afflalo in your "First Knick to Miss a Game" office pool, then congratulations!

Afflalo will probably wind up in the opening-night starting lineup at shooting guard -- knock on wood -- so it would be nice to get him some game action alongside his new teammates. That said, there's no need to rush a veteran into preseason action. Better to bring him along slow, as Congressional Medal of Honor-winner John Rambo intends to do.

Hang on a second...John Rambo doesn't coach the Knicks. Where was Derek Fisher?

Fair enough. Carmelo Anthony was at practice, however, and he's still mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore!

In conclusion, Afflalo is hurt, Fisher was absent, and Melo is angry. And so I leave you with some videos from Monday's practice. Go Knicks.

(Yeah, I know it was Kurt Rambis talking. I like this better.)
