This can’t be. Injuries have killed us all season so far & this is NOT the Christmas present I wanted. Hopefully it isn’t anything serious, but Melo rolled his ankle last night. Check out what he had to say about playing on Christmas…
New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony left Monday night’s 103-98 win over the Orlando Magic early in the third quarter with a sprained left ankle and didn’t return.
The Knicks also lost Raymond Felton late in the fourth quarter with a groin injury. The point guard hadn’t played since December 11 due to a sore left hamstring, which he injured during training camp and has been hampering him all season.
“We can’t catch a break, man,” said Felton after the game, slumped at his locker. ”Just can’t catch a break.”
“Hey, I’m walking,” Anthony said with a wan smile after limping through the locker room.
Anthony added that he believes he stopped his ankle “from rolling all the way, but I still rolled it pretty bad.”
Meanwhile, Anthony is insisting that he’ll play against the Thunder.
“I don’t want to miss that game,” he said. “It’s Christmas Day at the Garden. I’ll be there. Hopefully, I’ll be there.”
