The unwarranted criticism of Carmelo Anthony has reached an all time level. Tonight if he feels like he can play without risking further injury he will lace up his shoes and walk onto the Garden floor. If he can’t, then it is his and the Knicks best interest to rest.
Anthony rested Wednesday night, sitting out against the Pistons. Woodson said Anthony would be evaluated again Thursday night and if he feels better, he could play against the Thunder at the Garden. Woodson said it will be Anthony’s decision.
“I’ll do whatever he wants to do,” Woodson said. “Trust me. Players know their own body. If he tells me he wants to play I’m going to play him. I’m not going to fight him on that . . . If he says, ‘Coach, I need to sit down and rest a game or two,’ I’m going to grant that, absolutely.”
Why anyone is questioning his injured knee has got be baffled. When Melo is ready and fit to play we will see him back with the team. If anyone thinks the New York Knicks can win in the playoffs without the NBA’s top scorer, then they are delusional.
