Anthony left Monday's game against the Heat with soreness in his knee, Ethan J. Skolnick of Turner Sports reports.Anthony has dealt with soreness in his knee for the entire season and it should take no one by surprise that these complications keep surfacing. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward but there's an overwhelming fear that he may soon decide to shut it down for the rest of the season. Until that decision comes, the All-Star should be deployed across all formats as he continually puts up beneficial box scores every time he takes the court.
