Melo Out 1-2 Weeks


According to ESPN.comCarmelo Anthony could be out for the next two weeks with a strained groin suffered in last night’s victory over

the Utah Jazz.  Anthony left the game after just 6 minutes and was in obvious discomfort.

The Knicks went on to win the game despite missing both Stoudemire and, for a large portion of the game, Carmelo Anthony. Without their two starts the Knicks got some big contributions out of Tyson Chandler and more notably, Jeremy Lin.

Things are about to get very interesting for the Knicks who will be without both of their star players for at least the next game against the Wizards on Wednesday evening, and perhaps again on Friday night against the Lakers. Amar’e Stoudemire has left the team to be with his faimily following the unexpected death of his brother.
