Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler won't be playing for the New York Knicks against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.
Coach Mike Woodson announced the decision after the Knicks arrived at Staples Center for their afternoon game.
Anthony is the NBA's second-leading scorer this season, averaging 27.5 points. Fluid was drained from his right knee recently. He left in the third quarter of his return to Denver on Wednesday, and sat out the Knicks' loss at Portland on Thursday.
Chandler bruised his left knee in a collision at Denver and missed the Knicks' visit to the Trail Blazers as well. The defense-minded big man leads the NBA in field goal percentage (.645) and is seventh in rebounds (11.0).
New York has lost three straight blowouts on its West Coast trip.

Carmelo Anthony suffered a knee injury and has missed the past two games. He doesn’t seem very optimistic about his knee injury going forward.
Talking with Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Anthony seemed to think his knee injury could trouble him for the rest of his career. When as asked Carmelo had this to say: “I don’t think I’ll ever be 100 percent.”
Carmelo Anthony participated in shootaround and is expected to play Monday night against the Warriors after missing the last 3 games with a sore/stiff knee.
According to the NY Post:

Carmelo says he’s playing tonight. Knee is better, but not 100%. Rest helped. Says it won’t need surgery.

So Carmelo Anthony goes down and the New York Knicks complete a huge comeback and beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, outlast the Detroit Pistons in a roller coaster battle and take the Oklahoma City Thunder to the buzzer.

It’s not secret that the Knicks are secretive about injuries to their players, Amar’e Stoudemire and Rasheed Wallace are prime examples. No real cause for concern, but Mike Woodson saying Carmelo Anthony will ‘eventually’ be back from a sore knee isn’t the most encouraging news.

So close, yet so far.The Knicks can often leave their fans ever so frustrated when letting wins over some of the league's best teams slip right from under them. A very example of them doing so occurred just this past Sunday afternoon, after the Knicks lost a lead to the NBA champion defending Heat and faltered late in the game.Such a loss can leave fans livid for more, but that...
