After an incredibly disappointing return to Denver to face his old team, Carmelo Anthony will be headed back to New York City to get some tests and work done on his injured knee. He left the Nuggets-Knicks game with 9:45 left in the third quarter and his team down by 26 points.

Anthony also told reporters that he doesn't know how long he'll be out. The Knicks are currently in the middle of a five-game road trip, with games in Portland, Los Angeles to face the Clippers, and Utah remaining on the trip.

The Knicks' forward has been battling a knee injury for quite some time now, and hasn't been been able to play consistently since he aggravated it against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
