Carmelo Anthony is still questionable for Thursday's game against the Spurs, after suffering an ankle sprain back on December 23rd. The injury has kept Anthony out for a week, including their Christmas Day Game which he originally felt he'd be able to suit up for.
New York is riding a three game losing streak during his absence, having no go-to options on offense relying on players like J.R. Smith and Andrea Bargnani to shoulder the scoring load.
Head Coach Mike Woodson remains hopeful the Knicks' superstar will return in time for their three game road trip through Texas, but is still uncertain whether he'll be ready.
“I’m hoping he will be. When Melo’s ready to play, he’ll play. My track record with Melo has been he plays. And if he’s hurt, he’s hurt, and you got to believe that. So I’mis sure when he’s ready to get back out on the floor from his ankle, he’ll let us know and medical will let me know.”
