Knicks' Carmelo Anthony returns from knee sprain

The New York Knicks need all the help they can get.  They are still a good team.  They are still going to make the playoffs.  But they have struggled over the last few months.  The good new is, Carmelo Anthony is back.

Anthony returned last night against the Golden State Warriors.  He had missed the last three games with a knee sprain after tripping and falling hard to the court.  After the incident in which Anthony actually tripped over his own feet, he said the knee had been bothering for a while and the fall put things over the top.

Anthony put up a double-double in his return, scoring 14 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.  But it wasn't enough.  The Knicks flat-out looked bad and were blown out 92-63.

Anthony will look to help jump-start this team.  He has averaged 27.9 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this season.  That's a step up from his career numbers of 24.9 points and 6.3 rebounds.
