Just when you think things can’t get any worse.
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is playing with a sore left knee, and he aggravated the injury during New York’s 117-113 loss Tuesday night to the Milwaukee Bucks.
The team said Tuesday that an MRI revealed loose fragments in his right knee, and he’ll need an arthroscopic procedure this week.
Coach Tom Coughlin announced the move Monday, saying that Schwartz would be eligible to play Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys.
“He hasn’t played in a while, so I can’t say how much he can give us,” Coughlin said of Jennings. “He knows his limitations and knows his own body. We trust him. At this point, we need a win.”
“There is a lot of concern,” head coach Tom Coughlin said. “We’ve lost a player or two in each game, it seems like. That’s not a good one. Prince was playing well.”
The injury-ravaged Rangers will be without inspirational captain and all-situation defenseman Ryan McDonagh for the majority of a packed November schedule.
Coughlin doubted he would be able to count on Rodgers-Cromartie as an every-down player. Fewell added that the veteran has practiced well, but he was concerned how he will feel Saturday.
