New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is going to try to play in tomorrow night's game against the Detroit Pistons, if his ankle feels up to it. Anthony has missed the last two Knicks games, both losses.
Carmelo says his goal is to play tomorrow, depending on how ankle feels. Will go through morning shootaround first. If not Tues, than Thurs— Howard Beck (@HowardBeckNYT) January 30, 2012
If Anthony cannot play against the Pistons, and he is considered doubtful at this point (via SI), his next opportunity to play would come on Thursday against the Chicago Bulls. Both games are at Madison Square Garden.
Anthony leads the struggling Knicks in scoring this season with 23.6 points per game. He also leads New York with 4.3 assists per game. Anthony is third on the Knicks with 6.9 rebounds per game.
