Ryan Seacrest’s new injury: “It’s just one day”
- by admin
The New York Knicks are in the middle of an extended rehabilitation program for injured star Carmelo Anthony, according to sources close to the situation.
The team announced Monday that the Knicks will have Anthony back in the lineup Thursday, two days after his season-ending Achilles tear.
Anthony was expected to be back by Christmas but the timeline of his return was uncertain.
The Knicks announced Tuesday that they would not allow Anthony to take part in practice or games this season.
The Knicks are trying to re-establish the identity of a team that finished last season with the worst record in the NBA, and Anthony is expected to help in that process.
Anthony missed all of the Knicks’ season-opening victories against the Sacramento Kings and Boston Celtics because of his ankle injury.
The injury limited Anthony to just 14 games in 2016-17, when he averaged 13.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 35.3 minutes per game.
Anthony is also expected to miss the first six weeks of this season due to a hamstring injury.
Anthony has missed three games with a bruised left knee, which he suffered in the fourth quarter of New Orleans’ win over the Lakers on Feb. 11.
He had been in the gym for nearly a month when he left practice to have the MRI.
