Carmelo Anthony Out of Action 1-2 Weeks With Strained Groin

The New York Knicks and their fans can expect to see ‘Melo in street attire for up to two more weeks. Per the NY Daily News: “The Knicks got some bad news on Carmelo Anthony on Tuesday, announcing that their All-Star forward will be out approximately 1-2 weeks with a strained right groin. That means that Anthony, the team’s top scorer, could miss up to eight games if he has to sit out through the Knicks’ game Feb. 20 against the Nets. The team updated Anthony’s status as it started practice. He was injured Monday night in the Knicks’ win over Utah.”

    I’ll be the first to say it, someone in Denver threw a hex on Melo. Remember when some radio jockey had a witch doctor or whatever try to throw a hex on LeBron James on the air or something? Someone in Denver done did it to Melo but this one actually worked. Melo better see a Santera in Spanish Harlem or something to help get rid of the sh*t…


    Or maybe someone just tried to suckapunch him in the nuts.

    He’ll be back and better than ever. Done pulled his groin before the 14th so Lala will have to be gentle.

    Time for Jeremy Lin to take his game to a crazier level!!!!

    I hope STAT can get back soon…We need him.

    Chief, I actually kinda thought the same thing. Melo needs to stay in bed and let Lala do “all the work.” KSupreme, i’m loving Lin’s game, even when he only got garbage minutes, but now that he’s proven to be the ONLY PG on the team that can actually run Antoni’s offense, Antoni’s going to BURN HIM OUT! Remember what he did to Chris Duhon a few years back? Basically ended the man’s career. Lin is younger and capable, but in the last two games his minutes have been OD. I sincerely hope he proves to actually be the Knicks PG of the future – being that there’s no other options thanks to our salary cap issues and lack of PG’s on the market – and eventual all-star, but i’m not holding my breath. He has a hard time going to his left and can’t really hit 3′s. Still supporting him hardcore though…

    Lin ain’t good, if you think that then you’re a moron, he’s decent but no monster.

    Lin ain’t good??? If you wanna say he ain’t “great” or he ain’t “sick” or like you said, “no monster,” you right. But Lin IS good at what he does, which is play the point. He hustles, plays D, finds open players, never gives up on the play and can make his way to the bucket. If that ain’t “good,” then what is?

    i never pulled a groin, it seams very painfull

  • RunNGun

    Carmelo could use a Luis Scola crotch shot.

  • Red

    He’s decent, notice that no D gets played on him, you can’t deny a man having 2 20+ point games as being a bad player. He’s a good player indeed but average. I don’t like him because of the over-hype.

    What would be awesome, from a purely speculative standpoint, is while Amare and Melos recuperate from their respective death in the family and injury is Lin takes over, averages 25 points a game and leads the Knicks to a 10 game winning streak
    Followed by a complete global cultural transformation and culminating in World Peace.

  • http://slamonline..com cold as ice

    @red..Lin dont have to be the best pg. but as i saw last nite. no stat & no melo. thats the scoring and yet he still got the W!!!! so y u hating??? give the kid his props!!!

  • bull22

    lets see how derrick lin does the next two weeks and see if he gets this team
    to 500, if not not, the fat lady is tuning up her song for the end of the knicks season. i cant believe i picked this team to finish 3rd in the east.

    If Lin continues to play 40 minutes a game he won’t have any legs in two weeks. He’ll be Jeremy “Born on The 4th of July” Lin…

  • Red

    Derrick Lin? You’re a moron how are u a bulls fan? And I’m not hating I’m stating the obvious, he beat 2 mediocre teams by taking mad shots, bet If Fields took that many shots he’d do just as well. Knicks will play the Wizards next and watch everyone think he’s a ‘superstar’. People will always over-sensationalize things.

  • bull22

    @red, dude i was being sarcastic… you think iam foolish enough to really mean that. iam one of biggest knick haters here, LOL.

  • Red

    Oh well don’t I look like a complete jerk, lol sorry I suck at finding sarcasm online. Well I can only say screw the Knicks.

  • -Mas-

    TRADE CARMELO! Deron Williams is a perfect fit for the Knicks! TRADE!!!!

    I’m gonna say it we are going to be okay with Lin till Melo gets back. We got the Lakers on Friday and then the Mavs on the 19th.. besides that the Lizards, the Wolves, the Raps, the Seattle Kings and the Seattle Hornets… lets win the next 5 out of 8 guys!

    Melo is a ball stopper, Knicks climbs back to .500
