Knicks' Carmelo Anthony on tanking: It's a 'bad mentality to have'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) After notching back-to-back wins for the first time since Nov. 2, Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony told reporters that tanking is a "bad mentality to have," per ESPN on Thursday.

"I don't know how to have that mindset," Anthony said. "Having that mindset as a basketball player, as a competitor, it's just hard to do unless you don't care about the game, what happens and your performance. To say that we're going to go out there and we want to lose a basketball game, I think that's a bad mentality to have."

Anthony's Knicks defeated the 76ers 98-91 on Wednesday to improve to 7-36, which is still the worst record in the NBA. It was his third straight game back from left knee soreness. He has averaged 25.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists per contest since his six-game absence.

Anthony indicated that surgery will be needed at some point to alleviate the soreness in his knee, though that still remains to be seen. Team president Phil Jackson told reporters recently that playing in the All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 15 is important to Anthony.

"I think the most important thing is just a matter of how much work I've been able to put in with my overall body these two weeks," Anthony said. "So that's kind of what's getting me through right now, not having to compensate my knee, and everything else is feeling good."

Knicks F Carmelo Anthony could miss next four games


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2015) Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, who's missed two straight games to rest his sore left knee, could sit out all week as the Knicks play four more times, starting Monday night at Memphis.

"We're kind of looking at this next week or so being a heavy stretch, and probably will be best for him not to go," coach Derek Fisher said Sunday, via ESPN.com. "I just think from day to day it's hard for a player I'm just going to sit for 'X' amount of time. I think he could over the next couple days decide he's feeling better and wants to be out there with his teammates, I think he should be open to do so."

Anthony was planning to travel to Memphis (Monday) and Washington (Wednesday), but it's unclear if he'll play in either game, the report said. The Knicks host Houston on Thursday and Charlotte on Saturday.

After completing a stretch of five games in seven days that began with Sunday's home loss to the Bucks, the Knicks are off until Jan. 15.

Fisher said that despite the Knicks' 5-31 record, the team is not ready to shut Anthony down for an extended period. Anthony recently called surgery a "last resort."

"From the conversations I've been a part of, I think everybody is smart enough to realize, calendar-wise, timing-wise, that there may come a point that that's the decision that needs to be made," Fisher told the website. "But [we realize] that we can't force Carmelo to that point just yet."

Knicks' Derek Fisher has no plans to shut Carmelo Anthony down


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Knicks coach Derek Fisher said Saturday that he has no plans to shut down small forward Carmelo Anthony (knee) for an extended period of time, the New York Daily News reports.

"No, I don’t think shutting down is really the conversation that we’re having," Fisher said Saturday. "We’re all talking about what’s best for him, what’s best for the team, and right now, it’s taking some rest and recovery for the foreseeable future, in terms of maybe the next week or so. But not anything more than that has been discussed in terms of for the entire season. I still feel strongly that if he or we as a group feel that there’s a need to do that, I think that we can get to the point where we can make that decision."

Fisher said Friday that the team had been considering having Anthony rest for an extended period of time, but it appears the small forward could return at some point next week. The coach indicated it would be up to Anthony and the medical staff to determine whether he'll be available on a day-to-day basis.

"With Melo, you obviously know he’s had some issue with the knee, but it’s not a situation where we’re thinking about asking him to step out for the rest of the season," Fisher said. "I think he wants to play."

Anthony is expected to miss his second straight game Sunday. He has averaged 23.9 points on 45.3 percent shooting in 30 games. The Knicks play four games in a five-day stretch beginning wtih Sunday's matchup against the Bucks.
