Carmelo Anthony spoke more about his offseason elbow and knee surgeries.

If you haven't heard much about Carmelo Anthony's offseason surgeries, that's by design. The injured New York Knicks star told WFAN on Wednesday that the procedures he had done on his elbow and knee were "something I like to keep off the radar."

Now that he's healthy, Anthony is speaking more about it. In the interview, he added details about the procedures, which he had in May after the Knicks were eliminated from the postseason:

"I felt [the Knicks] were the only people who should know at that point," said Anthony, who added that he "wasn't feeling right throughout the whole season."

"I needed surgery for a long time. They didn’t know how I was playing with an elbow injury."

At this point, Anthony says he’s "healthy, good and ready to rock."

If there are any lingering effects from the surgery, they are hard to notice. Anthony has been playing a lot of basketball this summer, participating in the "Lockout League' the informal name given to the Pro-Am and charity games that have sprouted up around the country in the NBA's absence.
