New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is set to return from an ankle injury that forced him to miss the past three games and is expected to suit up Thursday against the San Antonio Spurs.

Anthony did go through shootaround this morning as the team starts its three-game road trip tonight against Western Conference competition.

The Knicks lost their previous two games in blowout fashion, losing a home-and-home series with the Toronto Raptors, 95-83 and 115-100.
