Original post:

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has been dealing with various bumps and bruises, but it was a badly rolled ankle that knocked him out of a Thursday night game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

After spraining his left wrist earlier in the game and opting to play through it, Anthony rolled his right ankle while fighting for a loose ball with Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol. The injury occurred with 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter and Anthony hopped around in significant pain before being taken to the locker room. Memphis was leading New York at the time of the injury, 53-40. Anthony left the game with 14 points, three rebounds and two assists on 6-for-11 shooting in 20 minutes.

The Knicks confirmed that Anthony was done for the night with a right ankle sprain. The New York Times reported that an X-ray on the ankle conducted at the arena came back negative.

Good player, but has alot of injuries. He misses 12-20 games every season. A total which is certain to rise with age. Especially with his salary and contract.
