Anthony Active vs. Suns

Friday, Jan. 29

The Knicks announced that Anthony will play against the Phoenix Suns on Friday.


Anthony Experienced Soreness in Surgically Repaired Knee

Anthony suffered a sprained right ankle in the team's win over the Boston Celtics on Jan. 12. Otherwise, he's avoided serious injury issues since sitting out for the second half of the 2014-15 season following knee surgery.

Unfortunately, the soreness Anthony was dealing with affected the same knee that was operated on. The hope is it won't become a lingering issue and that his brief absence from the lineup won't linger into the season.

The Knicks offense can become stagnant at times when Anthony is in the lineup because of his tendency to operate in isolated sets.
