News: Anthony (back) is officially being listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Thunder, the New York Post reports. Impact: It amounts to a status upgrade for Anthony, who had been initially ruled out entirely for the game. The doubtful tag still puts the odds against him playing Friday, but if his back spasms don't prove problematic during the team's morning shootaround, the Knicks may give stronger consideration to using him in the contest. If he's not able to go, expect J.R. Smith to take another turn as the Knicks' starting small forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Anthony (back) is considered doubtful to play Wednesday against the Mavericks, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. Impact: Anthony left Monday's game against the Rockets with back spasms, finishing with 14 points and seven rebounds in just 18 minuets. He's still dealing with pain Tuesday, and it appears the team is preparing to hold him out Wednesday, which would free up additional minutes for Travis Wear and Tim Hardaway, Jr.(RotoWire, )

News: Anthony is questionable to return to Monday's game in Houston due to back spasms, Newsday reports. Impact: When Anthony was removed just before halftime, he walked with a distinct limp to the locker room. He still has an opportunity to add to his 14 points (6-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, and one block in 18 minutes, but treatment behind the scenes will ultimately determine the Knicks' next decision regarding his ability to play.(RotoWire, )

Thu. Nov 20, 2014
News: Coach Derek Fisher said Anthony (knee) will continue to be monitored and called him "good go to, for now," Newsday reports. Impact: Anthony has been hampered by a minor knee issue of late, but he played through it against Milwaukee on Tuesday and Minnesota on Wednesday. He acknowledged that it's been sore since the second game of the season, but neither he nor the Knicks have publicly acknowledged what, exactly, the issue is. "He hasn't expressed any major concerns," Fisher said. "I think he's good to go, relatively speaking."(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 19, 2014
News: Anthony was not on the injury report Wednesday and he should take the court against the T-Wolves, the New York Post's Marc Berman reports. Impact: Anthony dealt with a minor knee issue Tuesday, but the Knicks are really scuffling, having lost eight of their last nine games, so Anthony will need to play through the ailment.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 18, 2014
News: Anthony was 10 for 17 for 26 points in Tuesday's loss at Milwaukee. Impact: Melo is firing on all cylinders over his last four games, averaging 31.8 points on 62.2 percent shooting - though the Knicks are 1-3 in that span.(STATS, 11:38pm)
Tue. Nov 18, 2014
News: Anthony briefly left Tuesday's game to go to the locker room but quickly returned to the game. It was revealed after the game that he's been playing through soreness in his left knee and plans to continue doing so, Newsday reports. Impact: Anthony has undergone some testing on the knee, but both he and coach Derek Fisher told the media it wasn't a serious issue. At this point, managers shouldn't panic. He played 38 minutes Tuesday with the knee bothering him, so there's little reason to suspect he's going to let it keep him out going forward. Managers who are already dealing with several injuries could hedge on the side of caution and look to trade Anthony for fear that the injury might become more serious down the line.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 17, 2014
News: Anthony continued his hot shooting on Sunday by totaling 28 points (10-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT), nine rebounds, thee assists, and a steal in 38 minutes. Impact: Anthony has now been shooting efficient for two games in a row, hitting 74 percent of his shots from the field and 81 percent of his free-throws. While his early-season numbers may have startled owners, it may have just been a slump begin the year trying to learn a new system. Hopefully this is a sign of Anthony figuring out the triangle offense, although don't expect him to finish the year shooting this well from the field.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 15, 2014
News: Anthony scored 46 points - the most in the NBA this season - on 16-of-26 shooting with seven rebounds in Friday's last-second loss to Utah. Impact: Anthony was 13 of 16 from the free-throw line after entering the contest averaging a career-low 4.8 free-throw attempts per game.(STATS, 00:39am)
Fri. Nov 14, 2014
News: Anthony scored 46 points (16-26 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 13-16 FT) and grabbed seven rebounds in 39 minutes against the Jazz Friday. Impact: The scoring total is certainly eye-catching, but owners should be most excited by Anthony's shooting efficiency Friday. He entered Friday averaging 41 percent from the field and 74 percent from the free throw line this season. On Friday, he shot 62 percent from the field and 81 percent from the line. Though Anthony had a couple of disappointing games at the start of the season, he remains worthy of the late first round pick that most managers spent to acquire him.(RotoWire, )
