Carmelo Anthony was not able to go in last night's game. The New York Knicks were taking on the Miami Heat, and the team announce Anthony's status not long before the game. New York went on to beat the Heat, but there was more for the team to focus on than what happened on the court. Anthony's status going forward will be important to the team's success.
According to Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York, Anthony was able to participate in the team's walkthrough Thursday afternoon, and he was listed as a game-time decision. However, coach Mike Woodson didn't think Anthony should play. The injury itself is not severe, but the fact that Anthony had to get five stitches Wednesday night probably led to him sitting for precautionary reasons.
The Knicks had the second-best record in the league heading into the match-up against the defending NBA Championship. They have had a surprisingly successful season so far, and Anthony has been a big reason why.
Anthony is averaging 26.4 points per game and 6.7 rebounds per game. He has averaged 24.7 points per game and 6.3 rebounds per game in his career.
