Carmelo Anthony 'probable' for Knicks-Magic

Wednesday March 20th, 2013

The New York Knicks received a nugget of good news Wednesday, a day after finding out that All-Star center Tyson Chandler will be out another week and Kurt Thomas won't play until mid-April.

According to tweets Wednesday morning from multiple news outlets, Carmelo Anthony is listed as "probable" for Wednesday night's game at Madison Square Garden against the Orlando Magic. Anthony hasn't played since March 13 in a game against his former team, the Denver Nuggets, when he tangled his feet and went down after playing only 21 minutes.

Anthony had his sore right knee drained last Thursday and has missed three games since the injury, a stretch in which the Knicks have gone 1-2. This will be the fourth and final meeting between the Knicks and Magic this season as New York looks to go 4-0 on the season against Orlando.
