Carmelo Anthony logged a season-high 42.5 minutes during the Knicks' Christmas Day loss to the Wizards, putting up 34 points (13-of-28 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, and three turnovers.
Melo has been logging heavy minutes over the past three games, however, that has not resulted in a win for New York. The Knicks have lost 16 of their past 17 games, and Anthony has admitted that his knee is still bothering him. Questions about Melo potentially shutting things down aren't going away anytime soon, so owners should seriously consider trying to sell-high while he's still in uniform. Dec 25 - 4:47 PM

Date:

Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire will play on Christmas vs. the Wizards.

There was no chance that they would this miss this game, but it is great that we are able to confirm it this early. Both players should be in all lineups with just five games being played on Thursday.

Carmelo Anthony admitted that his knee is still bothering him.

Asked about shutting it down, here was Melo's reply: "We’re dropping further and further, but we’re in December it’s hard to for me to take it easy and sit out and see what happens. I never know what’s going to happen. If I sit it out, will [the knee] get better? I’m feeling it now.’’ The Knicks are showing zero signs of improvement, and those with Anthony on the roster should really think about moving him before it's too late, even if it means selling at a slight discount.
Dec 22 - 1:25 PM

Carmelo Anthony played 37 minutes during Sunday's loss, scoring 28 points on 12-of-26 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, and two turnovers.

The minutes suggest that Melo's knee is healthy, but with the Knicks owning a record of 5-24, there's always going to be talk of him shutting things down. Carmelo remains an elite option while he's in uniform, but owners may want to seriously consider selling high.

Carmelo Anthony will play on Sunday vs. the Raptors.

This is exciting news for Melo, and the good news is that he said his knee was feeling great after Saturday's loss. There will always be some risk of the Knicks opting to rest him, but this is definitely a good sign. Get Melo active in all lineups.
Dec 21 - 12:52 PM

Carmelo Anthony said that his knee felt good in Saturday's loss to the Suns.

"These past three days, I was able to just kind of get my body right and stay off of the leg a little bit," Anthony said. "I felt pretty good out there. My knee felt good." Anthony had a great game on Saturday, scoring 25 points and pulling down 11 boards, and it doesn't appear that his status is in jeopardy for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors. Check back before tip-off just in case, but owners should be feeling a little more confident.

Carmelo Anthony played 40 minutes in his return to the lineup on Saturday during a 99-90 loss to the Suns, making 9-of-19 from the field for 25 points, 11 rebounds, three assist, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

It was a solid game from Anthony and he didn't appear to be hindered by knee soreness. The Knicks are a total nightmare and haven't won a home game since before Thanksgiving and now have the second-worst record in the NBA. Anthony's fantasy owners should be prepared for him to rest somewhat frequently. He said he is planning to play on Sunday.

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will play in Saturday's game against the Suns, and is listed in the starting lineup.

This is excellent news for his owners, and coach Derek Fisher also said that he is hoping Melo would be able to play on Sunday. Melo is obviously a must-start option when he is healthy, and should be in for a good game against the up-tempo Suns.
Dec 20 - 11:23 AM

Carmelo Anthony (knee) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Suns.

There has been talk of Anthony shutting things down to get his knee right, so we'd say he's more on the doubtful side of questionable. If he's unable to go Travis Wear could get another start, but he shouldn't be considered an option in standard leagues. Tim Hardaway Jr., however, would be a primary option on offense if Melo is unavailable, so he’d be the guy to target in dailies. Stay tuned.
Dec 19 - 12:50 PM

Carmelo Anthony (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Thursday.

There is talk of people advising him to sit out for a few weeks, so Anthony could miss time despite how he said he wants to play. With Anthony out, the Knicks are going to have to come up with some creative ways to score the ball. Tim Hardaway Jr. is probably their best bet based on how he carried the Knicks at summer league. Pablo Prigioni, Shane Larkin and Jose Calderon may be used in two-PG lineups, too. Anthony should be considered questionable for the weekend.
Dec 18 - 6:34 PM

Carmelo Anthony stated during Thursday morning's shootaround that he's had multiple people tell him he should consider sitting out for an extended period of time.

"I've had multiple people say kind of just shut it down or just take time off," said Anthony. "At the end of the day it's hard for me to just do that right now with what's happening with the team. So I'm just trying to be smart about it." The Knicks currently own a record of 5-22, and each loss gives Carmelo another reason to shut it down instead of risk further injury. Tim Hardaway Jr. is looking more and more like a must-own player.

Carmelo Anthony (knee soreness) is now expected to miss Thursday's game against the Bulls, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

Updating a previous item, Melo is now expected to sit Thursday night as he's dealing with knee soreness that Isola is reporting will require surgery after the season. With Amare Stoudemire (rest) already declared out for Thursday night, Tim Hardaway Jr. should see all the minutes he can handle if Anthony does indeed sit.
Dec 18 - 12:24 PM

Carmelo Anthony (knee soreness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bulls.

Amare Stoudemire (rest) has already been declared out for the game, so the Knicks will be extremely short-handed for Thursday's game if Melo sits. We'll update his status after shootaround, but Tim Hardaway Jr. could be in for big minutes if Melo joins Amare on the Knicks' bench Thursday night.
Dec 18 - 11:29 AM

Carmelo Anthony hit 11-of-23 shots and two 3-pointers for 26 points, five rebounds, five assists, four steals and a block in Tuesday's brutal 107-87 loss to the Mavericks.

Props to Melo for playing through his sore knee and that's a Durant-esque line, but with the Knicks sitting at just 5-22, you have to wonder just how long he's going to keep abusing his body for nothing. The groundwork has been laid for him to shut it down early with a knee injury this season and it really feels like it's just a matter of time before it happens. You may not be able to get a bona fide stud in return for Melo these days, but if you can move him before it all comes crashing down, we'd advise doing so.
Dec 16 - 10:40 PM

Carmelo Anthony (rest) did not practice on Monday.

Anthony is not 100 percent with his knee injury, but there's nothing to suggest this is anything other than an ordinary rest day. Expect the Knicks to do this again with Melo playing through the injury.
