(Carmelo) Anthony has missed 11 games due to a knee injury that likely will require surgery. Some have wondered if Anthony missed games in order to remain healthy for Sunday’s game at Madison Square Garden. He bristled at that suggestion during All-Star media availability Friday.

“I’ve played when I wasn’t supposed to play, so for people to say that is, that’s absurd,” Anthony said. “I’ve played through this [injury] since the second game of the season, since the first game of the season. So for somebody to say I was waiting for this moment — yeah, I was waiting for the moment. All-Star weekend was here in New York so of course, I was waiting for this moment.”
