I am sure this is going to make Knicks fans feel great, knowing that their medical staff has no idea what is going in with Carmelo’s knee.
Melo returned to the lineup last night against the Warriors and like the rest of the Knicks, was terrible, he had this to say courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk.
But he also dropped a little bombshell beforehand when asked what the team doctors had finally determined was causing fluid to build up on the knee, resulting in stiffness in the leg.
“Nobody can really give me an exact answer,’’ he said.
The Knicks had a very hot start to the season, but they are starting to fade now. Remember it isn’t how you start, it is how you finish.

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.”
While Carmelo Anthony declared he will not need surgery to repair his stiff/sore right knee, the Knicks forward said he doesn’t think he’ll be 100% healthy for the rest of the season, and revealed that no one can determine what is causing the fluid buildup in the back of his knee.

Carmelo Anthony does not have many people in his corner in Denver anymore.
The franchise has moved on with a younger and cheaper roster that is still winning games at a playoff-caliber pace. Every player except Ty Lawson has moved on since Anthony’s departure in 2011. Fans have clearly moved on as well. The former Nuggets superstar is expected to be booed vehemently when he makes...
When Dwight Howard took the court in Orlando for the first time as a Magic opponent on Tuesday night, he admitted that he would always have a soft spot in his heart for his former fans in Florida.

Carmelo Anthony will return to New York to have his right knee drained.
Carmelo Anthony, now in his third season with the New York Knicks, is finally making the trip back to Denver to face the team who drafted him. Melo was dealt to the Knicks in 2011 for Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton and other pieces.

Carmelo Anthony's return to the Pepsi Center was a flop Wednesday night when Wilson Chandler scored 24 points and the Denver Nuggets blew out the ailing New York Knicks 117-94.
The Nuggets led by as many as 34 points on the way to winning their 10th straight game and 14th straight at home.
This one was such a laugher that their starters didn't play the fourth quarter.

Carmelo Anthony came back Monday night against the Warriors, after missing three games with a knee injury. He might as well have stayed in a suit, as they lost the game by 29 points, in a pathetic 92-63 shellacking by Stephen Curry and company. Anthony played 34 minutes and scored a modest 14 points, on 4-15 shooting and grabbed...
