    Carmelo Anthony out at least a week to have Knee Drained

    From the Post...

    Knicks’ mile-high debacle: Melo to get knee drained; Chandler also hurt in rout

    DENVER — The Knicks must be cursed.

    The Knicks’ crisis went from bad to unthinkable Wednesday night. “The Melo Game’’ turned into a nightmare as center Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony didn’t finish because of knee injuries as the lifeless Knicks were clobbered by the Nuggets, 117-94, at Pepsi Center .

    The Knicks announced Chandler had a left knee contusion, and Anthony bolted early in the third quarter and will head back to New York to have his right knee drained and likely will miss the rest of the West Coast trip — if not more.

    Coach Mike Woodson called Chandler “probable’’ for tonight against the Trail Blazers in Portland, but he was limping badly in the locker room, and Chandler said he was unsure of his status and has refused to take an X-ray.

    Meanwhile, J.R. Smith afterward questioned the team’s “heart.’’

    Anthony, booed during pregame introductions and even more vigorously when he handled the ball in the first half in his return to the building that was once his home court, was rattled, rusty and hobbled. He left the game early in the third quarter with his lingering sore right knee after going 3-of-12 for nine points — 0-of-5 from 3-point range — and getting beaten continuously on defense.”

    “I just didn’t have it,’’ Anthony said. “I tried it. I think it was just time for me to give it some time and get to the bottom of it as soon as possible. It started tightening up. I felt I had no pop or power. I tried it in the second half and couldn’t move.’’

    “I’m just going to get it drained, get the fluid out, so I can get back on the court,’’ Anthony said.

    There is no timetable for his return but a medical expert said it could only be a week before he returns unless there is more to it. Nevertheless, fluid in the knee is a symptom of larger problems — possibly cartilage damage or arthritis.

    Early in the fourth quarter, a loud, taunting chant of “Where is Melo?’’ rang out in the thin Denver air as the Nuggets (44-22) won their 10th straight game — the longest winning streak in coach George Karl’s Nugget reign. With 1:30 left, the fans chanted “Who needs Melo?’’

    Smith, also playing with a knee injury, ripped the team.

    “We got to check out our heart right now,’’ Smith said. “We either got to compete or pack and go home. I’m very disappointed because we didn’t give the effort we should have. I don’t mind losing, but we just go out there and get demolished when we’re considered one of the best teams in the division. It’s not a good look for us.’’
    *sigh*

    JR is correct for once. Zero heart from team as a whole but fans love pointing the finger at one player while they forget that basketball is a team sport. Embarrassing performances by our team two nights in a row.

    Honestly just rest Tyson/Melo for the next 3 games.
    HCA would be great but we'd be a 1st round exit if we have these health problems lingering.

    Let's see if Iman can attempt to be a 4th option on offense and get some production from Novak/Copeland.

    Agreed. Melo and Chandler should just sit for a few games. Melo maybe for even two weeks. He needs to heal rather than aggravate the injury. The other players need to learn how to score.

    I just hope it's only a knee draining and nothing more. ...like a meniscus tear.

    "I'm not a big fan of getting needles," he said. "I'd rather get the natural treatment and see if the fluid can drain out by itself and get out with the treatment I get."
    Just can't help but to think of Lin situation last year when Carmelo basically became Lin's doc and declared it unsafe for Lin to play in the playoffs.

    Hope they put him under full anesthetic so he won't see that damn needle.

    This should have been handled a lot sooner. I'm not a doctor, but I asked one about knee draining. She said that depending on the situation, getting your knee drained is no big deal. The recovery time is pretty quick.

    If he takes a long time to heal, you can be pretty much guaranteed that the Knicks doctors are hiding something, and it's not just a fluid problem.

    Would have been nice if we still had Linsanity

    I think people in here need to recognize the difference between the MEDICAL STAFF and the PUBLIC RELATIONS STAFF. They're 2 completely different departments and for anyone who utters something moronic like "we have a dumb medical staff" obvioulsy has NO clue what it takes to become a physician for a professional sports team.

    All the major physicians that work with the Knicks are specialists and are highly regarded in their respective fields. The specific physicians I'm speaking of are orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine physicians. These are extremely competetive residencies (orthopedic surgery) and fellowships (sports medicine) to ascertain after medical school. This is me talking as a Chief Internal Medicine resident at a middle tier residency program, to become a part of a professional sports medical staff you have to have the top USMLE scores (medical board exams,) and have graduated from the premier residencies in this country (i.e. Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, etc.) You're talking about a very small, esoteric group whose widely considered the brightest physicians in their regions.

    And we're talking about a simple drainage procedure that falls under the medical staff's incompetencies?That's absolutely moronic speaking and is just the uttering of people that have no clue what they're speaking of. Sorry to sound brash, but it's one of the dumbest misnomers on this board, that our medical staff is somehow incompetent.

    Now our PR people are notorious for not saying the truth. There have been gag orders promulgated on a variety of staff members where they're not allowed to speak to media publicly too often throughout the season.Anybody watching this team for even a couple years knows our PR people are a lot different from the rest of the league. So if Melo has a bigger issue than getting his knee drained, I seriously doubt a bunch of elite physicians are the reason for his slow recovery, rather the PR people aren't being too truthful about what problem Melo has exactly. 2 totally different departments.

    Nah the medical staff sucks, but I agree the PR staff does a poor job fooling the fans. That could be due to the amount of injury changes that have occurred in the last 2 years alone though. You can only fool people for so long before they catch on.
