The New York Knicks were without forward Carmelo Anthony in their 123-94 Christmas Day loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Anthony injured his ankle in the third quarter of the Knicks’ 103-98 victory over the Orlando Magic Monday night. Before the injury, Anthony scored 19 points on seven-of-14 shooting, grabbed three rebounds and dished out two assists in only 24 minutes.
As for his ability for Friday night when the Knicks host the Toronto Raptors?
“Still day-to-day, we’ll see where he is tomorrow and evaluate him from there,” Knicks head coach told reporters via the Knicks’ official website as transcribed by Pro Basketball Talk’ Kurt Helin. “He’s day-to-day.”
Without Anthony, the Knicks have been a disaster. The Magic cut a 25-point lead to one with Anthony off the floor for a majority of that run and the Thunder had no trouble blowing out the Knicks Wednesday.
“We’ll have a better feel tomorrow based on his treatment, he didn’t do anything on the floor today, just basically got treatment,” Woodson said. “If he says he’s ready to go, we’ll put him in uniform and play him.”
On the season, Anthony is averaging 26.3 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.
