He's back on the East Coast and he'll be coming in hot as he gets ready for the big game on Saturday. Expect Carmelo to have a bright green light at Madison Square Garden and the MSG faithful should be cheering on their guy after he handled the situation so well. Anthony has actually been pretty good on no rest with 18.5 points per game on 45.8 percent from the field in those four. He'll be a popular DFS play. Dec 16 - 2:40 AM

Carmelo Anthony hit 5-of-12 shots for just 11 points, two rebounds, two assists, a block and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes of Monday's blowout loss to the Hornets.

Melo was a brutal -21 in the +/- department tonight, meaning the Hornets went on quite a run when he was on the court tonight. Melo has scored 14 or fewer points in four of his last five games, and his 21-point performance on Saturday came when Paul George was in street clothes on Saturday. Melo hasn't shot at least 50 percent in a game since Dec. 1, and his shooting woes are the reason the rest of his numbers don't look too good. Russell Westbrook, Melo and George are all still trying to figure out how to play with each other, as OKC's disappointing season (12-14) continues..
Dec 11 - 10:59 PM

Carmelo Anthony posted 21 points, nine rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots across 37 minutes in Saturday's overtime win in Memphis.

Melo was one of four OKC starters to finish with 20 or more points, as they had very balanced offense on this night. Anthony was jacking up shots early and often, hitting 7-of-20 from the field, including 2-of-6 from behind the arc. That's the bad news. The good news is that he didn't turn the ball over while chipping in with the two swats.
Dec 9 - 11:57 PM

Carmelo Anthony hit just 5-of-20 shots for 11 points, 11 rebounds and three assists, while also missing 3-of-4 free throws in Thursday's ugly loss to the Nets.

Melo was expected to handle a big workload with Paul George and Jerami Grant tonight, but he just couldn't get his shot to fall. Melo hit just 6-of-19 shots on Tuesday and hasn't played well since the end of November. He's getting minutes and shots up right now, so his fantasy lines will quickly improve once his shooting slump is over.
Dec 8 - 12:31 AM

Carmelo Anthony was held to single-digit scoring again on Sunday with nine points on 4-of-10 FGs, six rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

Melo has scored nine points in two straight games in December, but Thunder coach Billy Donovan praised his selfless play. "Carmelo is a complete pro," he said. "He didn't really force anything tonight." He's grabbing 6.2 boards per game but doesn't offer much else beyond offensive stats, with 1.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.7 blocks, so the low scoring will be a problem if it persists. Expect better on Tuesday (vs. Utah) and Thursday (at Brooklyn).
Dec 3 - 11:26 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored a season-low nine points with six rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

He actually played well on the defensive side, but Paul George was the one getting all the work on the offensive side. The Thunder have actually been better with PG and Westbrook without Melo compared to all three together this year, so maybe Anthony gets staggered more. Expect Melo to be a mid-round fantasy value.
Dec 1 - 11:45 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 20 points on Friday, finishing 9-of-24 from the field in 36.5 minutes of playing time.

Melo added eight boards, three assists, two turnovers, a steal, and two triples, but the lack of efficiency—combined with a whopping zero free throws—is going to take the appeal right out of this line for many.
Nov 24 - 11:58 PM

Carmelo Anthony hit 7-of-19 shots and 2-of-9 3-pointers for 19 points, nine rebounds, two assists and four steals in 35 minutes of Monday's 114-107 loss to the Pelicans.

Melo was good tonight, but the Thunder couldn't get the win despite strong play from most of its starting five. Melo is cooking in his last four, averaging 17.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.5 3-pointers on 41 percent shooting. It's safe to say he's found new life in OKC.
Nov 20 - 10:54 PM

Carmelo Anthony finished with 20 points, six rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot across 33 minutes Friday in San Antonio.

Melo did a pretty solid job, hitting 9-of-17 from the field, including 2-of-3 from behind the arc, and he turned it over just once. He entered the day with 20.1 PPG, 6.2 RPG and 0.9 BPG, so the outing was right on the mark as far as all of his season averages are concerned. It was a nice improvement over his 3-of-10 shooting performance Wednesday when he was making his return from a back ailment.
Nov 18 - 12:08 AM

Carmelo Anthony (back) returned on Wednesday with 18 points and 11 rebounds, making 3-of-10 FGs and 11-of-12 FTs in 28 minutes vs. the visiting Bulls.

Melo wound up missing just one game with back soreness. We'll keep an eye on him over the next week, but this shouldn't be a lingering issue. He's shooting just 34.9 percent in November, and his value is highly concentrated in scoring (16.8 points per game), threes (2.2) and rebounds (8.2). His shot will come back around, and as long as he's healthy there are no grounds for complaint.
Nov 16 - 12:55 AM

Carmelo Anthony (back) will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

This likely means that Jerami Grant will return to the bench, but he could still see minutes in the mid-20s with Steven Adams (calf) on the sidelines. Melo won't have any restrictions tonight, so feel free to fire him up for a favorable matchup against Chicago.
Nov 15 - 6:28 PM

Carmelo Anthony (back) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

Anthony sat out Sunday's game with a sore back and was limited to non-contact work during Tuesday's practice, so he feels somewhat closer to doubtful than questionable for tonight's game, but we likely won't get official confirmation on his status until just prior to tip-off. Steven Adams (calf) is also doubtful for Wednesday's game, so Jerami Grant could be looking at minutes in the mid-30s tonight.
Nov 15 - 12:47 PM

Carmelo Anthony (back) was limited to non-contact work during Tuesday's practice.

He's going to be re-evaluated on Wednesday, so owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out again, Jerami Grant will be in line for another start and both Russell Westbrook and Paul George will see an uptick in usage.

Carmelo Anthony (sore back) won't play vs. the Mavericks on Sunday.

It's the first we've heard about a back injury for Melo, and he logged 31 minutes vs. the Clippers on Friday, so hopefully this is more of a precaution. Patrick Patterson and Jerami Grant should be busy in his absence, while Russell Westbrook and Paul George will absorb most of Melo's 27.3% usage. Consider him day-to-day as we await more details.
Nov 12 - 6:16 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points during a loss to the Nuggets on Thursday, adding five rebounds, one steal, two blocks and six 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The other revenge game? Against one of his former teams, Anthony came into this game in a brutal slump to start the month, averaging 13.7 points, 9.0 boards, 1.7 assists, 0.3 steals and 1.7 treys on 27.3 percent from the field in his previous three. He also passed Allen Iverson on the all-time scoring list as he matched his season high in scoring. It's been up and down for the Thunder stars, so fantasy owners will probably have to take the good with the bad.
