    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Sitting out Friday

    Anthony will not play Friday against the Grizzlies due to soreness in his left knee, Steve Popper of The Record reports. Anthony has been dealing with soreness in the surgically repaired knee for several weeks, and Friday will mark his fifth absence since mid-January. The 31-year-old has struggled in each of the last two games, shooting a combined 8-of-34 from the field with six turnovers. With Lance Thomas (concussion) also out for New York, the Knicks will be forced to lean heavily on Derrick Williams at small forward, with Thanasis Antetokounmpo, who recently signed a 10-day contract, potentially being thrust into an increased role. Anthony's next chance to play will come Sunday against the Nuggets.

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Rough night from field but scores 19 in Thursday loss

    Anthony dropped 19 points (4-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 10-14 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, eight assists and a steal on Thursday in a loss to the Pistons. Anthony really struggled from the field on Thursday in a very tough matchup against Marcus Morris and the Pistons. He did most of his damage from the free-throw line, getting there a season-high 14 times. Melo is also starting to rack up the rebounds and Thursday marked the fourth consecutive game that he had at least 10 of them. The Knicks have lost seven of their last eight games and if they're going to turn it around and make the playoffs, Melo will be the guy that gets them there. He's been a great play in all fantasy formats lately and there's nothing that shows that will stop in the near future.

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Has 16 points, 14 rebounds in Tuesday's loss

    Anthony had 16 points (4-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-10 FT) with 14 rebounds and four assists during 35 minutes in Tuesday's 97-89 loss to the Celtics. Since returning from a minor knee injury, Melo has recorded three straight double-doubles and is averaging 19.7 points and 4.7 dimes per game. His efficiency and touches have gone down, but Melo has managed to make up for that by having one of the better rebounding seasons of his career.

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Posts team-highs of 24 points and 10 boards

    Anthony (knee) had 24 points (8-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 36 minutes during the Knicks' 116-95 loss the Warriors on Sunday. That's back-to-back double-doubles for Anthony, who missed two games earlier this week with knee soreness. After missing just two games through the end of December, Melo missed four games in January. However, he seems fairly healthy all things considering, and Anthony did a great job of spreading the ball around (over five assists per game) without turning it over in January (less than two turnovers per contest).

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Nears triple-double in Friday's return to lineup

    Anthony (knee) recorded 19 points (5-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists, and four steals in 30 minutes during the Knicks' 102-84 win over the Suns on Friday. Anthony missed the last two games due to knee soreness, but had a very nice all-around showing on Friday--albeit against the lowly Suns. Melo now has 12 double-doubles on the season, and the Knicks are a mere three games back of the eighth spot in the East.

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Will play Friday

    Anthony (knee) will play Friday against the Suns, Frank Isola of ESPN New York reports. Knee soreness has kept Anthony out of each of the last two games, but he'll return Friday, and he'll be joined in the starting frontcourt by Kristaps Porzingis, who was also initially questionable with an illness. Starting point guard Jose Calderon (groin) will be held out, however, and Langston Galloway will start in his place.

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Questionable for Friday

    Anthony (knee) remains questionable for Friday's game against the Suns, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. Anthony has missed the last two games with lingering soreness in his knee and continues to be listed as questionable heading into Friday's matchup with the Suns. With that being said, we should see his status updated sometime closer to tip-off. With Kristaps Porzingis (illness) and Jose Calderon (groin) also in danger of missing the game, the Knicks could be short-handed Friday, which would open up extra minutes for the likes of Lance Thomas, Derrick Williams and Kyle O'Quinn.

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Sitting out Thursday

    Anthony (knee) said he won't play Thursday against the Raptors, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports. Anthony was initially deemed questionable, but he'll miss a second consecutive game Thursday after sitting out Tuesday's loss to the Thunder. Anthony told reporters that the plan is to try to play Friday against Phoenix, but nothing is set in stone at this point. In Anthony's absence, Lance Thomas will likely make another start after scoring 16 points to go with four rebounds before fouling out of Tuesday's game.

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Considered 'day-to-day' going forward

    Anthony (knee) is considered day-to-day in advance of Thursday's matchup with the Raptors, the New York Post reports. Earlier in the week, Anthony hinted that he was looking forward to playing against Oklahoma City on Tuesday, but he ultimately sat out the game due to soreness in his left knee. It's the same knee on which he underwent surgery last February, but Anthony said he does not believe there's a connection. Head coach Derek Fisher didn't sound quite so sure, emphasizing the need to continue evaluating the knee. "At this point it's not, [but] you don't know unless you continue to evaluate the situation," Fisher said. "At this point it's just a sore left knee. We're hopeful it will calm down soon. If something tells us otherwise, we'll be smart and as we've always tried to be and make a decision that's best."

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Sidelined Tuesday

    Anthony (knee) won't take the court Tuesday against the Thunder, Steve Popper of The Record reports. Despite assurances from Anthony that he would play Tuesday, he'll instead take a seat with the aim of suiting up for both ends of the Knicks' upcoming back-to-back set Thursday and Friday. In his stead, Lance Thomas (knee) will get the nod at small forward.
