Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony diagnosed with torn labrum

New York Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony dealt with shoulder discomfort through the playoffs. After the Knicks’ elimination, the MVP candidate had his shoulder examined further to see if the cause of the pain could be determined. Anthony was diagnosed with a small tear in his left shoulder that was revealed during an MRI taken Wednesday, according to Ian Begley of ESPN New York.


While the Knicks are hopeful that Anthony can rehab the injury and avoid surgery, there is a chance that the All-Star will require a procedure to repair the tear. New York plans to allow Anthony three-to-four weeks to rest the shoulder in hopes that it will heal on its own. However, if this doesn’t prove successful, surgery will be considered.

If the procedure is required, it could sideline Anthony for four months. For this reason, the Knicks will want to come to a consensus sooner than later so that Anthony can fully recover before next season.
