Carmelo Anthony Will Not Play Friday, Hopes To Return January 1st

Marc Berman from the New York Post has a little report on the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony.

Anthony suffered a hyperextended knee against the Lakers after Marcus Camby fell into it in the second quarter. He still finished the game but the Knicks ended up losing, 100-95. He didn’t play against Phoenix on the very next night, which the Knicks won at the buzzer.

There’s no need to rush Melo back into action. They’re going against the hapless Sacramento Kings on Friday night and they should be able to take care of business without Melo. Anthony hopes to return against the Portland Trail Blazers on January 1 when they go back to Madison Square Garden after a quick three-game West Coast swing.

Coincidentally, that’s when Amar’e Stoudemire also hopes to make his return. What a way to ring in 2013 for the New York Knicks, right?

The Knicks have been depleted as of late. Raymond Felton is out because of three hand injuries. Rasheed Wallace has a sore left foot. And Melo continues to be out with a hyperextended knee. It doesn’t help that the Knicks are the oldest team in the league. They have five players who are 35 years old and older. Kurt Thomas is the oldest player in the league (older than the Los Angeles Clippers’ Grant Hill by one day). Jason Kidd will turn 40 in March. Marcus Camby will turn 39 in March. Rasheed Wallace is 38. And rookie Pablo Prigioni is 35. You might as well put Stoudemire on that list since he seems to have 90-year-old knees.

Carmelo Anthony is second in the league in scoring at 28.5 points per game. He is one of the main reasons why the Knicks are second in the East at 21-8. He will miss his sixth game this season. Thomas will likely start in his place at power forward.
