The New York Knicks say Carmelo Anthony is doubtful for their game against the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night. Anthony has missed the last five games with a strained right groin.

If he doesn't play Friday, their next game is at home Sunday against Dallas. Anthony leads the Knicks with 22.3 points per game but has missed eight games with injuries.
