An MRI performed on New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony showed that he has a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder, and will be re-evaluated in three to four weeks to see if he needs surgery, reports the New York Daily News.

Anthony played 12 playoff games with the injured shoulder and he was originally hurt in an April 14 game against the Indiana Pacers.

Anthony re-injured the shoulder in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series against the Boston Celtics and later said that he was experiencing the sensation of his arm shoulder popping out of the socket which is common for someone suffering from a torn labrum.
