Ankle sprain leaves Carmelo Anthony questionable against Cavs

Saturday December 15th, 2012

The Knicks announced Friday that forward Carmelo Anthony is questionable for Saturday's game against Cleveland after spraining his left ankle Thursday night against the Lakers.

The team said Anthony did not undergo X-rays on the ankle and is optimistic he will be able to play Monday at home against the Rockets

Anthony scored 30 points before leaving the game midway through the third quarter after driving and landing awkwardly following a collision with Dwight Howard.

On Thursday night, Anthony said his left ankle, knee and hip were "really sore" and said it was "too soon" to say if he was playing on Saturday.
