Currently dealing with an injured shoulder, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony may need surgery to repair the damage given the lack of updates provided by the team.
Melo, who played the entire postseason with the hurt shoulder could be facing at least three months on the shelf if he does need to go under the knife, putting his return date near the start of Knicks training camp.
Per the Daily News:
The Daily News reported last month that Anthony suffered a partially torn labrum late in the regular season. The initial plan was to see if the injury will heal without surgery and re-evaluate it after three weeks.
It’s been 23 days since the original diagnosis, and the fact that Anthony is still receiving treatment could be seen as a positive sign.
As the Daily News states, the lack of an update could also be sign as a positive sign that things are healing as expected – hopefully we’ll have an update to his condition soon.
