NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Yesterday, it was revealed that Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire will miss six weeks due to surgery on his right knee. However, it remains unclear how long Carmelo Anthony will be out of the Knicks’ lineup.
Anthony missed Saturday’s victory over the Jazz and the Knicks are considering him as questionable, or in Melo own words he’s “so-so.” He has missed the past three games after a buildup of fluid in his right knee, which was found after he underwent a recent MRI; further tests are pending.
“The big thing for us is we get Melo back coming up and then we go on the West Coast trip and try to come back with a positive record,” head coach Mike Woodson said.
Through 50 games, Anthony is averaging 28.2 points per game and 6.2 rebounds, second only to Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
