Report: Knicks' Carmelo Anthony suffered knee injury last season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony's knee troubles began last season when he suffered a partial tear of the left patellar tendon, reports the New York Post.

When Anthony underwent surgery last week to repair a debridement in his knee, Anthony also needed to have calcium deposits cleaned out of his knee, which developed within the partial tear. Anthony is expected to need four-to-six months before he can return to the court.


Heat's Wade on Carmelo Anthony: Smart to shut it down


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade said Friday that Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony did the "smart thing" by electing to undergo surgery, the New York Daily News reports.

"The smart thing for him to do was to shut it down and get healthy and he’ll be back by the time of training camp so he’ll be good," Wade said Friday before his team's 111-87 win in New York. "This is not one of the bad knee surgeries that you have to have. It’s probably a 25-minute procedure. It’s never great to go in and open anything up. But if you wanted a knee surgery to happen, this is the one you’d want. Like I said, Melo will be fine."

Wade underwent the same procedure, called patella tendon debridement and repair surgery, following the 2006-07 season. He had a second surgery on the knee in 2012 and has dealt with tendinitis and bone bruises throughout his career.

"The biggest thing is that he was smart about it,” Wade said. "Obviously a lot of things out there about why and what - the reason was (for him to have the surgery). But I was in the exact same position he was in. Actually we had nine wins going into the All-Star break and he has ten so he’s better than we was. But we shut it down and I was able to get surgery and get healthy and come back and have my best season as a pro."

Wade also said he spoke to Anthony before his surgery. The Knicks forward is expected to need four-to-six months of recovery time.

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: 'I played when I wasn't supposed to play'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony called the idea that he missed games earlier in the season to save himself for the All-Star Game "absurd," ESPN.com reports.

"I've played when I wasn't supposed to play so for people to say that is, that's absurd," Anthony said. "I've played through this (injury) since the second game of the season, since the first game of the season. So for somebody to say I was waiting for this moment -- yeah I was waiting for the moment. All-Star weekend was here in New York so of course, I was waiting for this moment.

"(But) I played when I wasn't supposed to play. When people were telling me to sit out, I was fighting against them and still going out there and playing," Anthony added. "It was almost a point in the last couple of days where I wasn't going to participate in All-Star weekend."

Anthony reiterated Friday that he plans to play in the All-Star Game, even if it's only for a few minutes. "That's important to me," Anthony said. "At the end of the day, it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation because if I would have said I'm not participating, I'd have gotten backlash about it. I'm saying I am participating. I get backlash. I'm happy. I'm here participating. It's here in New York. The fans voted me in and I'm going to play in the game."

Anthony remains unsure of his status for the remainder of the season as he continues to mull whether to have surgery on his injured left knee.


Knicks F Carmelo Anthony hasn't made mind up about season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony backtracked somewhat from an ESPN radio interview on Thursday, where he said it was "very likely" he would shut his season down after the All-Star Game due to left knee soreness.

Accoridng to NBA.com's Adam Zagoria, Anthony, speaking to reporters at the All-Star Game media day, said that he hasn't reached a final decision on what he'll do once the weekend's festivities conclude.

"I'm going to see, I'm going to try," Anthony said, when asked if he'll play after the All-Star Game. "We have a whole week to figure that out."

Surgery is still a possibility for Anthony, who has dealt with the injury all season. 

"My mindset is, if [surgery] is something I have to get done, then I'm going to do that," Anthony said, via ESPN New York's Ian Begley. 

However, Anthony also said, via Newsday's Al Iannazzone, that he's still unsure if he'll play in another game this season, but reiterated that no decision has been made.

The Knicks are a league-worst 10-43, making it more likely for the organization to take a cautious approach with Anthony's health.


Knicks F Carmelo Anthony 'very likely' to shut it down after ASG


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony said Thursday on ESPN Radio that it's "very likely" he will shut down playing after the All-Star Game.

"I got to start thinking about the future," Anthony said.

Anthony has been bothered by left knee soreness for several months this season. He aggravated the injury Monday against Miami and sat out Wednesday night against Orlando. Surgery still remains a possibility for Anthony. He is expected to speak with the media on Friday, and will likely clarify more on his lingering knee injury. He also indicated that he'll probably play in Sunday's exhibition game at Madison Square Garden, "even if it's just a few minutes."

The injury caused Anthony to miss six consecutive games, including seven overall in January. As a result of Anthony not being 100 percent, the Knicks are at the bottom of the standings with an NBA-worst 10-43 record. Because New York is well out of contention and destined for a lottery pick, they'll take a cautious approach with Anthony moving forward, focusing on the future of the franchise. He has averaged 24.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 40 games this season.

Anthony will be available to the media Friday before trying to give it a go at his home court in Sunday's All-Star matchup. He sat out Wednesday's game in Orlando due to knee soreness, marking the second time in the Knicks' last three games that he's been sidelined. Anthony has averaged 24.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 40 games.

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony considering surgery on injured knee


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony is dealing with a knee injury that he has battled on and off all season. Anthony has already said he doesn't know if he'll play in this weekend's All-Star Game and now he is considering surgery to repair the knee.

"Now is the time to really start taking into consideration about fixing it and when to take care of it. Don't wait long. Should I get it done now or afterwards?" Anthony said. "I'm still trying to come to a decision." 

He thinks the injury would keep him out two months if he has the surgery now.

"If I have it done now, I will for sure be back for camp," Anthony said. "I will be back way before camp. If I have to calculate -- I am not the doctor -- I would say if I get it done now, two months until I am back on the court. But this is something I would take slowly and not try to rush. But from what I am hearing, if I was to get it done sooner than later, then I will be back to my kind of regular working out schedule in the summertime."

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

“I get the frustration coming from the fans … but we’re the ones going through it, too, and we have to deal with it, too," Anthony said. "We have to come to work everyday and play hard and stay focused whether we’re winning or losing. Yeah, I feel for the fans. They’re the ones who spend the money and one of the reasons we’re able to do what we do. But I want them to know we’re going through the same thing.’’

Carmelo, Kobe discussed teaming up during offseason in L.A.


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2015) Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony was considering joining the Lakers and Kobe Bryant this past offseason when he was a free agent, according to the New York Post.

"They came in at the 25th hour, they swooped in there," said Anthony, who owns an apartment in Los Angeles. "It was a great visit. The conversations I had with Kobe was just man to man. We both had to come to reality and say, 'Is this what we really want?' And it didn’t happen."

The Lakers were reportedly never interested in pairing the two superstars in Los Angeles, according to the report.

"We’ve been talking for a long time, man, especially this summer, just me and him communicating, and talking and being honest with one another as friends and brothers should be. It was a lot going on there on his behalf and my behalf trying to figure everything out," Anthony said.

Anthony, who is averaging 24.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in 36 games this season, also thinks Kobe will be back in 2015.

"I know him, and this is not the way he wants to go out." Anthony said. "I’m pretty sure he’ll do whatever he has to do to get back on the court one more time before he hangs them shoes up."
