(AP) — The New York Knicks may be without Carmelo Anthony on Wednesday night. If their reserves can repeat their latest performance and Amare Stoudemire can continue his efficient scoring, it may not matter against the hapless Detroit Pistons.
New York will be going for its second straight season sweep of Detroit – having taken the first three meetings by an average of 16.7 points – and its 11th win in 12 matchups overall.
Anthony is listed as questionable after exiting in the second quarter of a 102-97 victory over the Cavaliers on Monday with a right knee injury. The forward said it had been bothering him for several weeks, and he appeared to aggravate it when he twisted the knee and dropped to the floor.
The NBA’s second-leading scorer at 28.2 points per game, Anthony said he underwent an MRI a “couple days” earlier, though the results were negative.
