As the New York Knicks continue to battle for the last playoff spot in the East, Carmelo Anthony continues to fight off the injury bug from multiple directions. 

Already dealing a sore right ankle that made him a game-time decision on Friday night, the Knicks' superstar suffered a new injury against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. 

According to Newsday's Al Iannazzone, however, it doesn't sound serious:

Time to exhale, Knicks fans. 

'Melo tallied 19 points, including four key ones down the stretch, to go with nine rebounds in 34 minutes, helping the Knicks earn a nice road win to climb within one game of the eighth-place Atlanta Hawks

It may depend on how the injury reacts overnight, but with the Knicks fighting to keep their postseason hopes alive, it would be surprising if Anthony missed Monday night's game at Utah

If he is forced to miss any time, Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. would see the biggest uptick in minutes.
