NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Carmelo Anthony will return to the Knicks’ lineup tonight against the Denver Nuggets.

Knicks’ head coach Mike Woodson previously told reporters in his pregame press conference that Anthony would be a game-time decision.

Anthony has been missing since suffering lacerated left middle finger against the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday.  Melo dove into the Knicks’ bench diving for a loose ball.  He tested out his hand before Saturday’s game against the Bulls, but wasn’t able to take part in New York’s 93-85 loss to the Bulls.

Melo will suit up against his former team on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.
