According to ESPNNewYork.com, “Melo will miss his fifth game in the Knicks’ past seven with a right leg injury. Anthony also said that the fluid drained from his right leg late last week was not from a knee issue but one involving his hamstring. In addition to Anthony, center Tyson Chandler is questionable for Monday night’s game with a neck strain, and Kurt Thomas, who’s been starting in place of Chandler, is questionable with a sprained right foot.  Thomas will have X-rays on his foot before the game.” Say what now? I’m no doctor, but Melo had fluid drained from his knee, but the problem didn’t involve his knee? It involved his hamstring? And now Tyson Chandler has a neck strain?  But he sat out the last couple of games due to a knee contusion?  WTF is going on?! None of this makes any sense.  It feels like the Jeremy Lin situation all over again. Remember, last season he was listed as day to day, and next thing we knew he was shut down for the remainder of the season. The Knicks are sooooo shady, man. Transparency is definitely not their specialty. As for tonight’s game, considering the Knicks are no longer playing the dominant ball that led to a 29 point blowout in their last meeting with the Utah Jazz, I don’t have too many expectations.  At this point, I just want the Knicks to get through the game injury-free and return home, ASAP.  Once they’re back in their surroundings, hopefully they’ll be able to regain confidence, focus, and healthy bodies. Yet, despite the horrible play over the past week, somehow the Knicks have managed to maintain a one game lead over the BK Nets and sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Division. The Knicks are 5-5 over their last 10 games, while the Nets aren’t much better at 4-6.  Tonight the Nets kickoff an eight game road trip against the Detroit Pistons, followed by the Mavs, Clippers, Suns, Blazers, Nuggets, Jazz, and Cavs. PREDICTION: I’d love to think the Knicks could beat the struggling Jazz again, but it’s the last game of a miserable road trip and I doubt the Knicks have anything in the tank. Knicks lose. NEXT GAME: NY Knicks vs Orlando Magic @ 730PM/ET, MSG
