Carmelo Anthony will return to the starting lineup for the New York Knicks tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers after missing two games with a hyperextened left knee. Anthony injured his knee on Christmas Day in a loss to the Lakers and has missed six of New York’s last 13 games. When he is out of the lineup the Knicks have gone 3-3.

Anthony is averaging 28.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this season while shooting an impressive 43.4 percent from beyond the arc. Although he has missed six of the last 13 games, he has averaged 33.7 points per game in the seven games in which he has been healthy enough to play.

Joining Anthony on Tuesday against the Blazers will be Amar'e Stoudemire, making his season debut after undergoing knee surgery during the preseason.

The Knicks (21-9) take on the Portland Trail Blazers (15-14) at 7:30 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden.
