Report: Knicks’ Anthony Playing Through Shoulder Injury


New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony said he’s playing through a “bad” right shoulder injury that requires constant treatment, according to a report. Anthony has been dealing with the shoulder injury for the past four weeks and missed one game last month due to the ailment.

“It’s bad,” Anthony told the New York Daily News after the Knicks’ win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night. “You know what it is; it’s an adjustment that you have to make on the fly. Like some days it feels good; some days it’s tight. Throughout the course of the game — certain shots, certain moves — you feel like the strength isn’t there. So it’s just a matter of figuring out how to play through it. What’s working? What’s not?”
