W2W4: Knicks at Nets

Here are a few things to keep an eye on tonight during the Knicks-Nets game: Will Melo play? The Knicks say Carmelo Anthony is questionable for their last game with the Nets due to a right shoulder injury. Mike Woodson sees no reason why Anthony should play. Anthony sat out of the team's shoot around on Tuesday and is unlikely to play tonight. The Knicks say he will undergo further testing. It is unclear if that testing will include an MRI. With the Knicks eliminated from playoff contention, there is no need for Anthony to risk further injury.

Knicks-Nets rivalry in intensive care

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Some rivalry. The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks have played three games so far this season. All three of those games have been blowouts. Now, on Tuesday night, with basically nothing to play for, it looks like both teams are going to sit most of their key players. I’d hate to be a fan who paid top-dollar hoping this would be a prime late-season matchup. Here’s your injury report (Kind of reminds me of football): Nets Out: Shaun Livingston (toe), Alan Anderson (abdominal muscle), Mirza Teletovic (personal) Game-time decisions: Deron Williams (knee),...

Melo: Thibodeau's system is 'great'

Carmelo Anthony was probably just being polite. But the verbal bouquet he threw at the Chicago Bulls may be a little concerning to Knicks fans, especially those worried about Anthony signing with another team this summer. The free-agent-to-be was asked on Friday night about the Bulls’ ability to succeed despite the loss of Derrick Rose (injury) and Luol Deng (trade). Chicago is 15 games above .500 and is on the verge of locking up the third seed in the Eastern Conference.

Anthony: 'I can't be myself' due to injury

All year long, the Carmelo Anthony has carried the Knicks on his shoulders. One of those shoulders is now giving out -- at the worst possible time. Anthony said his right arm felt “dead” at times during the Knicks’ 102-91 loss to Miami on Sunday. He's nursing a right shoulder injury. “Coming into the game this morning, it felt alright. Throughout the course of the game, it felt like a dead arm at times,” Anthony said.

Can Shump fill the void for Hardaway Jr.?

The Knicks’ playoff chances don’t hinge on the health of Tim Hardaway Jr.’s ankle. But if Hardaway Jr. is out -- or if he is less than 100 percent healthy due to a sprained right ankle -- then it’s fair to say that they'll take a hit. The rookie guard sprained his ankle late in the Knicks' win over the Jazz on Monday. He underwent X-Rays after the game. The tests came back negative, according to the team. His status for Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets is uncertain.

Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. suffered a sprained ankle in the fourth quarter of the team's win over Utah on Monday. Hardaway appeared to land awkwardly on his right foot late in the fourth and hobbled off the floor. X-rays came back negative and Hardaway Jr. was diagnosed with an ankle sprain, according to the team. The rookie's availability for New York's game Wednesday against the Brooklyn Nets is unclear at this point. Hardaway has been a key piece for the Knicks this season, providing a strong presence on the perimeter.

New Knicks president Phil Jackson has lots of rebuilding work to do

Big Chief Triangle is back. Former Bulls and Lakers coach Phil Jackson, the man with 11 championship rings as a coach and one more as a player for the Knicks (two, if you count the 1969-70 title season when Jackson was out with a back injury), has returned from the wilderness to become the president of the Knicks. You could say Jackson is doing it for the love of the game, but the five-year deal for a rumored $12 million per year is a nice inducement. Even for a Zen...
