It seems as if we won't know whether or not Carmelo Anthony will suit up tonight against the Nets until just before tip-off.
According to reports, Anthony (ankle) was at shoot-around, yet he's still feeling some pain in his ankle. Still, he's going to try and test his ankle prior to tonight's matchup between the Knicks and Nets.
Carmelo Anthony still is a game-time decision. He will test his ankle before the game.— Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) December 19, 2012
Anthony has missed his team's last two games, and with the Knicks likely to be without Rasheed Wallace (foot), Marcus Camby (foot) and Steve Novak (flu), we might see Melo press and play in this one.
"He’s moving around pretty good so we’ll see," Mike Woodson said. "He still hasn’t indicated that he’s going to play. So he’s going to wait. I think he’s going to come out and warm up and see how he feels."
So, we'll see.
