Knicks' Carmelo Anthony (knee) will play Wednesday against Clippers
Anthony was pulled at halftime of Sunday's loss to the Trail Blazers with a knee injury. Bargnani has not played this season due to calf and hamstring injuries.
Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reported earlier this month that Anthony's knee injury could require surgery, though the operation could be delayed until after the season.
Bargnani had a hamstring injury in the preseason and suffered a calf injury as he was nearing a return. He was acquired by the Knicks in a trade with the Raptors prior to last season. Bargnani played 42 games in 2013-14 before he tore a ligament in his elbow in January. The Knicks initially hoped Bargnani could return before the end of the season but he did not play again.
At 5-28, the Knicks have the second-worst record in the NBA. Only the 76ers (4-25) have fewer wins.
