News: Anthony scored 34 points (11-24 FG, 8-10 FT, 4-9 3Pt) Sunday against the Raptors. He added nine rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 44 minutes of action. Impact: This was one of Anthony's best games of late, as he's really been struggling this season with sub-par averages. Owners who drafted him with a top-8 pick are probably regretting it at this point. In spite of the fact that he's playing under expectations, he's still a top-tier option in all formats, with averages of 23.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers made per game.(RotoWire, )

News: Anthony scored 34 points Sunday in New York's loss to Toronto. Impact: He grabbed nine rebounds as well. Anthony remains one of the league's top scorers, despite being on a terrible team. He's averaging 23.3 points this season.(STATS, 00:36am)
Sat. Dec 13, 2014
News: Anthony (knee) played 39 minutes against the Celtics on Friday and led the team with 22 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal, and three blocks. Impact: Anthony returned from a one-game absence Friday and didn't seem to be hampered by the knee issues that sidelined him previously. However, the 30-year-old openly remarked that he's dealt with lingering pain all season long, so it's very possible that he could need time off the court in the future if the pain continues to build. But as for now, he seems to be available at full capacity moving forward.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Dec 12, 2014
News: Anthony was back in the starting lineup for the Knicks' game against the Boston Celtics on Friday night. Impact: New York coach Derek Fisher said Anthony felt good after the team's shootaround earlier in the day. Anthony, the team's leading scorer at 22.9 points per game, missed the club's loss in San Antonio on Wednesday with a sore left knee.(STATS, 6:59pm)
Fri. Dec 12, 2014
News: Anthony (knee) will start Friday, The Record's Steve Popper reports. Impact: He was thought to be doubtful for Friday's game, but he will in fact give it a go. It may be wise to shy away from using him in daily leagues, as it is not clear if he will play his full compliment of minutes, but those in full season leagues should deploy him as usual.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Dec 12, 2014
News: Anthony (knee) is unlikely to play against the Celtics on Friday, Ian Begley of ESPN reports. Impact: Anthony already missed Wednesday's game against the Spurs with lingering pain in his left knee and seems in line to miss a second-straight contest Friday. His next opportunity to get on the court will be against the Raptors on Sunday, although the small forward is contemplating taking significant time off the court to finally allow his knee to heal properly.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Dec 11, 2014
News: Anthony (knee) is considered questionable to play Friday against the Celtics, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports. Impact: Anthony missed Wednesday's game against San Antonio, as the discomfort in his knee flared up earlier in the week. He'll be evaluated on a game-to-game basis going forward, while reports surfaced Wednesday suggesting he could miss a chunk of time if the knee does not show improvement. Look for an update on his status for Friday's game following morning shootaround.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Dec 10, 2014
News: Anthony (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game. Impact: A report came out earlier in the day that suggested Anthony may need surgery at some point, but he says he wants to explore all possibilities before going that route. He has been playing through pain all season, and with the team effectively out of contention already, it may be prudent to have the surgery sooner than later. Consider him day-to-day right now, but things certainly aren't trending in the right direction. Look for Tim Hardaway and J.R. Smith to see more time in Anthony's absence.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Dec 10, 2014
News: Anthony (knee), who is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with San Antonio, could need surgery on his ailing left knee at some point, the New York Daily News reports. Impact: It's no secret Anthony has been playing through pain this season, and he admitted after Tuesday's loss to New Orleans that he may consider taking some time off to let the knee heal. "At this point, sitting down with trainers and coaches and seeing what's best for everybody," Anthony said. "If it's best for me to sit out, take some time to get it right, then that's a decision we'll have to make. But they'll have to pull me out." Anthony has proven on multiple occasions that he's more than willing to play through injury, and if it's determined that the knee will require surgery, he could opt to postpone it until after the season. However, given the Knicks' position as one of the worst teams in the league, it may be in both Anthony and the team's best interest to be proactive in addressing the injury. At this point, it's unclear which course of action the organization will take, but it would not be a surprise if Anthony misses some time in the near future, especially if the Knicks' losing ways and the pain in his knee continue unabated.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Dec 10, 2014
News: Anthony (knee) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, the New York Post reports. Impact: Anthony reportedly received treatment prior to Tuesday's contest, but still posted 17 points, eight rebounds, and one assist in 39 minutes. Despite his ability to tough out a game Tuesday, he is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game, and should receive an update on his status prior to Wednesday's 8:30 PM ET tipoff.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Dec 10, 2014
News: Anthony's persistent knee injury isn't getting better or worse, and had to get treatment before Tuesdays' game, Chris Herring of the Wall Street Journal reports. Impact: This certainly isn't good news for owners. While it's not getting worse, if the Knicks continue to struggle, Melo could see some rest nights or limited action to try to help him heal up. Anthony has also dealt with back spasms this season.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Dec 8, 2014
News: Anthony logged a double-double by scoring 23 points (9-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with 10 rebounds and three assists against the Trailblazers on Sunday in 35 minutes of play. Impact: Continue to play Anthony as you would. He has played well despite the struggles for the Knicks who are an underachieving 4-18 for the season.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Dec 6, 2014
News: Anthony bounced back from a lackluster performance on Friday, but the Knicks lost 103-102 to Charlotte. Impact: Anthony had 32 points on 11-of-22 shooting after being held to a season-low nine points on 4-of-19 shooting in a loss to Cleveland on Thursday.(STATS, 02:07am)
Fri. Dec 5, 2014
News: Anthony endured a rough performance in Thursday's loss to Cleveland, scoring a season-low nine points on 4-of-19 shooting. He also committed five turnovers compared to four assists, though he grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds. Impact: Anthony is 22 of 67 (32.8 percent) from the floor and 3 of 18 from 3-point range in three games since missing back-to-back games due to back spasms. He had been shooting 47.8 percent on the season - including a 23-of-56 mark from deep - prior to missing time.(STATS, 00:39am)
Thu. Dec 4, 2014
News: Anthony recorded nine points (4-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt), 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, and five turnovers in 30 minutes against Cleveland on Thursday. Impact: Anthony had a poor performance Thursday shooting 21 percent from the field. He has not seemed like himself the past few games. Perhaps his back spasms are still giving him trouble. Look for him to turn it around Friday at Charlotte.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 28, 2014
News: Anthony had 31 points and eight rebounds in an 86-79 loss to Miami on Sunday after missing two games because of back spasms. Impact: The Knicks (4-13) lost both games without Anthony. (STATS, 5:25pm)
