Carmelo Anthony questionable for Knicks vs Kings


NEW YORK (Sporting Alert) Star forward Carmelo Anthony remains questionable for the New York Knicks NBA game against the Sacramento Kings at Sleep Train Arena on Friday night.

Anthony missed the Knicks exciting win over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night with a left knee problem he picked up in the defeat against the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas Day and may have to sit this one out as well.

The league’s second leading scorer this season is averaging 28.5 points per game and is eager to continue his impressive run of form in recent games.

New York are already without the likes of Rasheed Wallace, who is out with a foot injury and starting point guard Raymond Felton, out for up to 4-6 weeks with a fractured right finger.

However, Amar’e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert are both close to making returns.

The Knicks (21-8) are 7th in the league in total points per game at 102.2 and 12th overall in points allowed per game, at 96.7.

Sacramento (9-19) has dropped seven of its last ten games, including at 109-91 defeat at Portland Wednesday night.
