Carmelo Anthony Will Play Wednesday Against Magic
New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony said on Tuesday that he would “for sure” play against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night, according to ESPN.com. Anthony is listed as questionable after suffering a strained right groin in Monday’s game.
“I was there all morning getting lots and lots of treatment,” he said. “But tomorrow’s a new day, get some more rest today, get some more treatment later on and see what happens from there. But I’ve had a groin injury before and it’s nowhere near the first one.”
Anthony missed seven games in February with a groin injury. According to ESPN.com, Anthony said he wasn’t sure how much his playing time would be limited.
“I’m a slasher, I’m a powerful guy, I like to take it off the dribble, so as far as being explosive, I really don’t know how that’s going to affect it,” Anthony said. “But we shall see. I’m going to go out there and play and see what happens.”
Anthony is averaging 20.2 points, 6 rebounds and 3.7 assists this season for the Knicks.
