The New York Knicks have been eliminated from the playoffs, and now MVP candidate Carmelo Anthony is slated to have his ailing left shoulder examined, according to Frank Isola of The New York Daily News.
Anthony experienced discomfort in his shoulder earlier in the playoffs, prompting the Knicks to have it examined. The injury wasn't determined to be significant, and he continued suiting up for the team.
Now that New York's season has come to an end, the Knicks will have Anthony's shoulder re-examined. They're not expecting anything major to be uncovered, as the team is hoping simple rest and therapy will be enough to allow the shoulder to heal. Worst-case scenario, Anthony would require surgery, but again this isn't expected at this point.
Anthony initially injured his shoulder in April, and it again became an issue during the team's first-round playoff series against the Boston Celtics. After the Knicks eliminated the Celtics, Anthony told reporters that his shoulder had "popped in and out."
