Carmelo Anthony injury update: Knicks star likely out Saturday

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks will likely be without star player Carmelo Anthony on Saturday when the team takes on the Cleveland Cavaliers,

Mike Woodson and the New York Knicks are planning to sit star player Carmelo Anthony, who is dealing with a left ankle sprain, when the team takes on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, via Frank Isola of The New York Daily News.

The Knicks did not practice on Friday and neither the team nor Anthony were available for comment. But it appears Anthony will sit Saturday's game out, no matter how hard he works to try to change that.

Anthony's injury came during the third quarter of Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers when the forward was on the wrong end of a physical foul from Lakers' Dwight Howard. The foul caused Anthony to land awkwardly on the floor.

He did not return to the game after suffering the injury in the third quarter and the Knicks held on to win the game. Anthony told reporters, including Isola, it was indeed the way he landed.

"I'm real sore right now...ankle, knee, hip," Anthony said on Thursday. "It was the way I landed on the floor."
