Carmelo Anthony F NY 4 Hrs

Anthony thinks he will play Sunday, The Record's Steve Popper reports.

He has played in each of the last two games, and will have had two off days since his last game Thursday, so it would seem logical that he would be out there Sunday. Nonetheless, it would be wise to check his status prior to Sunday's game to be sure.

Anthony could have rested for Thursday's second half of a back-to-back against the Pacers, but ended up starting. He was limited to 25 minutes, and scored 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while picking up just one rebound, one assist and one block.

Anthony sat out Saturday's game to rest, and the general pattern had been for Anthony to rest during back-to-backs, but with Travis Wear (hip) out Anthony had to play to help the Knicks at small forward. He was still limited, but this game was over after the third quarter, so there was no reason to play him in the fourth.

Anthony will play Thursday versus the Pacers.

After playing 38 minutes Wednesday against the Thunder, Anthony was considered questionable heading into Thursday's game, as he continues to nurse chronic knee issues. However, he's been given the green light and it does not appear he'll be on any sort of minutes restriction. Anthony is averaging 26.4 points on 42.7 percent shooting in five games this month.

Anthony is not certain whether he will play in Thursday's game against the Pacers, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Anthony looked healthy while putting up 31 points and 10 rebounds in Wednesday's game, but with Knicks playing for the second time in as many nights Thursday, he may sit out to give his knee a rest. Anthony's status for Thursday's game will be revealed sometime prior to tip-off.

Anthony returned to the starting lineup after resting for a game to help the Knicks upset the Thunder on Wednesday. Anthony had a double-double with 31 points (12-28 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and 10 rebounds.

Anthony sat out Saturday's game against the Hornets, but returned to form easily Wednesday. He's scored 24 or more points in all five of his games this month, and now has two double-doubles in his past three games. Owners may still want to be weary of a possible shutdown after the All-Star break, but feel free to use him in all formats for now.

Anthony (rest) will play in Wednesday's game against the Thunder, The Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.

He had missed the last two games due to rest, and while the possibility remains that Anthony could still be shut down at some point this season, he will be back on the court Wednesday. He is starting with a rag-tag crew, with Jose Calderon the only other player anyone would have expected to be starting for the Knicks at this point in the season. Deploy him as usual, as every game Anthony plays this season should be cherished by his owners.

Anthony (rest) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

Anthony is coming off a serious knee injury and the Knicks are weary of playing him in back-to-back games at this point in his stage of recovery. His next opportunity to take the court will be against the Kings on Monday while Lance Thomas enjoys the start at small forward Saturday.

Anthony is questionable for Saturday's game against the Hornets, the team announced.

There's a chance Anthony could sit out the second in a pair of back-to-back games for New York, but there's no way to know now. This will probably be a game time decision, so check back before the game for a concrete answer.

Anthony (knee) scored 27 points (8-24 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 9-10 FT) with 11 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 40 minutes during Wednesday's win over the 76ers.

When Melo plays he still puts up big numbers, but his lingering knee issues and the likelihood that he won't be able to play both ends of a back-to-back make him tough to rely on in leagues without the option of daily roster moves.

Anthony will play in Wednesday's game, but is unsure if he would be able to suit up for both games of a back-to-back, Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports.

Anthony posted 24 points, nine rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 36 minutes Monday against the Pelicans, and his knee is apparently feeling well enough to go again Wednesday. The Knicks have a back-to-back on tap Friday and Saturday, so it could signal him missing at least one of the two games.
