News: Anthony (knee) plans to attend Team USA minicamp in August, the New York Daily News reports.
Impact: Anthony missed the final 30 games following left knee surgery in February to repair a torn patellar tendon. He was originally outfitted with a four-to-six-month recovery schedule, and it appears he's on the outer fringes of that timetable. Minicamp runs from August 11-13, and it would be Anthony's first action since the All-Star game. Competing in the workouts would be a wonderful sign for his progression heading into training camp.

News: Anthony (knee) is progressing in his rehab from left knee surgery, and Knicks president Phil Jackson said the forward "looks great," Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports.
Impact: Anthony underwent surgery in February, and the team initially stated that they hoped to have him back on the court by June. Anthony has been going through shooting drills, and while he's yet to be cleared for full contact, the Knicks are "happy with where he's at" in his recovery. With a few months before the start of training camp, Anthony's availability should not be in question.

News: Anthony (knee) says his rehab following surgery on his left knee is ahead of schedule, Ian Begley of ESPN reports. "I'm doing extremely well," Anthony said. "Rehab is going very, very well. I'm actually ahead of schedule (compared) to where everybody predicted I would be at this point in time."
Impact: This is great news for the Knicks, as last season showed how much New York struggles without Anthony in the rotation. The eight-time All-Star has not yet scrimmaged with the team, but he has been able to put shots up. Should Anthony, as expected, enter the 2015-16 season healthy, he will be at the center of the Knicks' rebuilding plan. He likely won't be alone, as New York also has the No. 4 overall pick in this coming draft and around $27 million in cap room to spend this offseason.
