New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, currently sidelined with multiple injuries, is listed as “questionable” for Monday night’s game when his team takes on Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic.
Anthony sprained his right ankle and his left wrist Thursday in Memphis, then sat out Saturday’s game in Oklahoma City. The Knicks lost both games by double digits.
Anthony, who is averaging a team-high 26.6 points per game along with 6.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists, said of his ankle injury:
“It’s sore, but if I can go, I will go,” he said Sunday, between rounds of treatment that included jogging in the pool. “It’s time to get going right now.”
With Anthony sidelined, the Knicks (6-6) are on a two-game losing streak after reeling off a season-best four straight wins.
Slated to be a high-scoring club going into the season, the Knicks have struggled on both ends of the floor — but particularly on offense.
“We’re not playing with a high level of confidence right now,” Anthony told ESPN on Sunday. “… I think we need to get back to that and get back to having fun.”
In addition to Carmelo Anthony, the NY Times reports that the Knicks could also be welcoming Baron Davis to the lineup soon.
Davis, who signed with the Knicks in December and has been rehabilitating a herniated disk for several months, has increased his activity in recent days and may begin practicing as soon as next week, Coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters.
