Carmelo Anthony suggests knee surgery is imminent

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

After Monday night's flare-up, it seems Carmelo Anthony is nearing the point at which he will voluntarily end his season to undergo surgery on his left knee. He offered just a few details about his issue and the necessary procedure after practice Tuesday:

So, perhaps some chronic patellar tendonitis. Perhaps an arthroscope (if he gets surgery. That's still an if.). These are guesses. We'll know once they do the surgery. A potential two-month rehabilitation leaves plenty of recovery time, and then some. For now:

Fine. Cool. As always, I wish for Melo to become fully healthy so he and the Knicks can be great in the future. I hope and think things are headed in that direction.
