Melo Pulled from Game; Says Season ‘Crumbling’

Updated

on

(Carmelo) Anthony did not finish Sunday’s 101-79 blowout loss to the Trail Blazers, pulled at halftime by coach Derek Fisher after Anthony’s sore left knee acted up late in the second quarter.

Anthony would have sat out the game entirely after playing 45 minutes Saturday night had the club not been decimated by injuries. He played, and shot 5-of-14 for 13 points in the first half before Fisher pulled the plug on Anthony, who said his leg felt “heavy and weak.’’

The long-term future looks bleak, but Anthony says he plans to play on and not make good on his threat to shut it down for a few weeks to see if rest heals his knee completely. He added he feels the season is “crumbling.’’
