Even while drilling a game-winning three-pointer in Milwaukee, it’s been reported that New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony has a bum shoulder.
New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony has been playing through an apparent “bad” shoulder injury. After last night’s win over the Milwaukee Bucks, Anthony told Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News he has required constant treatment on the shoulder.
Anthony said, “It’s bad, it’s an adjustment that you have to make on the fly some days it feels good some days it’s tight.”
The forward added that it’s tough in-game because certain shots and moves he just doesn’t feel the strength to perform at 100 percent.
According to Melo, he has been receiving treatment on the shoulder for approximately four weeks now and said the only thing to help heal is resting the shoulder.
When asked if he would sit in any games here’s what the Knicks star said, “Not yet, especially now when we’re in grind mode and have a chance to get above 500. And we have some teams that we feel are winnable games.”
Even though Melo didn’t look banged up Friday night posting a double-double, this is certainly what Knicks fans love to see from their superstar, grinding out games even with an injury which is why New York loves Carmelo Anthony.
