Carmelo Anthony (illness) will not play on Sunday vs. the Rockets.
This report comes out of nowhere and this is obviously a huge blow for his owners considering tip-off is less than an hour away. Anthony should be considered day-to-day, and we'll go ahead and list him as questionable to play against the 76ers on Wednesday. Lance Thomas will draw the start on Sunday, but he's not worth a look in most leagues. Nov 29 - 7:07 PM

Carmelo Anthony made 4-of-13 from the field for 11 points in 34 minutes against the Heat during a 97-78 loss on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

The Knicks never had a chance tonight and the Heat locked Melo down with some off-ball defense. Anthony is still posting second-round value on the year and looks completely healthy. The Knicks being in the mix for the postseason helps, too.

Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points and hauled in 13 rebounds on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to defeat the Magic in Orlando.

The Knicks shot a season-low 32.2 percent in Monday's loss to the Heat, and they stumbled along tonight with 91 points on 37.3 percent shooting. Melo's fantasy owners went home happy, at least, as he added three 3-pointers, three assists and one steal with only two turnovers in 35 minutes.

Carmelo Anthony scored 21 points with eight rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block against the Heat on Monday.

The Heat have been terrific on defense and they kept Melo in check here. Anthony has been solid this year and is still putting up early round value. Also, Melo took a shot after he took six steps, which can be seen in the link below.

Carmelo Anthony struggled with foul trouble against the Rockets on Saturday, finishing with 14 points, six boards, three turnovers and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

The Knicks secured the win and Anthony hit a clutch 3-pointer towards the end of the game, but his owners will be a little disappointed that he couldn't stay on the court. He is coming off a 25-point performance against the Thunder and has been returning second-round value this season, so his owners should give him a pass. Anthony will look to get it going against the Heat on Monday.
Nov 21 - 11:00 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points during a 93-90 win over the Thunder on Friday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

Melo took a back seat on Tuesday when Kristaps Porzingis took over, but he was right back to his old ways of taking a ton of shots with 20 from the field tonight. On the season, he’s kept his turnovers down this season and is shooting just 40.9 percent from the field. Anthony is still holding second-round value on the year.
Nov 21 - 1:49 AM

Carmelo Anthony scored 18 points with 11 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Hornets on Thursday.

It's not often the Knicks get a win and Carmelo isn't the team's top scorer, but here we are. Even though this was his lowest scoring game in his last six and he made just 6-of-18 from the field, Melo's owners shouldn't be worried. Plus, the Knicks are 6-6 and might not be as likely to shut Anthony down.
Nov 17 - 11:00 PM

Carmelo Anthony revealed his legs are feeling stronger than at the beginning of the season.

The difference shows in Melo's performance on the floor, as well. After shooting 40 percent or worse in five of his first six games, Anthony hasn't shot worse than 43.5 percent in any individual game since. "It’s still a process of staying with it and doing the proper work to get those legs working," he said. "They’re starting to feel better and better. I got to stick with the process and plan until they get all the way back. They’re getting better." With his rehab (knee) in the rearview mirror, expect Anthony to look more like himself moving forward.
Nov 16 - 10:28 AM

Carmelo Anthony powered the Knicks to a win over the Pelicans on Sunday with 29 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and two turnovers over 39 minutes.

Melo is currently putting up second-round value on the season with averages of 23.0 points, 6.6 boards, 3.7 assists, 2.0 three-pointers, 0.9 steals and 2.0 turnovers per game. He’s had a handful of bad games with regards to his shooting percentage, but as a career 45.4 percent shooter you can bet his current shooting percentage of 40.0 will trend upwards as we get deeper into the season, which could lift his fantasy ranking to the first-round. As long as he’s healthy, he’ll be a beast.
Nov 15 - 2:38 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points during a 90-84 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding five rebounds, four assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

That's four straight games with at least 24 points from Melo. He didn't make over 50 percent in any of those and attempted at least 20 field goal attempts. Anthony is putting up third-round value on the season.
Nov 14 - 12:37 AM

Carmelo Anthony was on top of his game in a win over the Raptors on Tuesday, scoring 25 points on 10-of-23 shooting with four boards, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

Anthony was excellent tonight and was a little fortunate that DeMarre Carroll missed tonight's game for the Raptors. He was shooting just 37.1 percent from the field prior to tonight's game, so hopefully he can keep this momentum going against the Hornets on Wednesday.
Nov 10 - 10:36 PM

Carmelo Anthony (neck) will play against the Raptors on Tuesday.

Anthony revealed he's dealing with a neck stinger from the Lakers game, but said he'll be ready to play Tuesday night. Unless there is late-breaking news here, Anthony should be in all fantasy lineups for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.
Nov 10 - 1:08 PM

Derek Fisher said he's noticed a change in Carmelo Anthony's "willingness" to trust his teammates.

"What we’ve seen is I think a willingness to kind of fit into what we’re trying to do," Fisher said. "[He’s] trying to give other guys space to operate out there." Melo agreed with his coach's assessment. "I know the guys that I have on this team," Anthony said. "It’s just me trusting those guys out there and believing in those guys and letting them know I’m relying on them." Anthony is averaging 21.4 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.6 triples. The 3.7 assists is the second-highest mark of his career, but Anthony's shooting just 37.1 percent from the field in the early going.

Carmelo Anthony said he's not concerned about his sub-par shooting to start the season.

Carmelo's shot has been rusty to start the season, but he wasn't worried about shooting 6-of-18 from the floor on Wednesday night. "It’s not really frustrating. I know it’ll come back," Carmelo said on Wednesday. "Those shots that I’m taking are shots that I normally make so I’m not too concerned about that." Shooting woes aside, Anthony is averaging 21.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.6 treys, so he's well on his way towards returning early-round fantasy value.

Carmelo Anthony's rusty jumper was lubricated on Saturday, as he scored 37 points on 11-of-18 FGs with four 3-pointers in 35 minutes of action.

He knocked down 11-of-12 free throws while adding seven rebounds, four assists, one block and only two turnovers. Melo confirmed this weekend that there's nothing wrong with his knee, blaming his poor shooting (he came in at 32.6 percent) on a lack of rhythm, and we hope none of his owners overreacted to a two-game sample. Now healthy, Melo should again vie for the league lead in scoring.
