Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is dealing with what sounds like a pretty serious back injury, and he is not expected to play on Wednesday according to the New York Post.
He is also not expected to play Friday, and there is no timetable for his return. The Knicks are now concerned this injury could effect Anthony all season, and fantasy owners should share the same concern. Shane Larkin started in Anthony's place in the second half on Monday. Amare Stoudemire along with several other players should get more opportunities as long as Anthony is out.
