According to various reports, the Knicks were not willing to say exactly what was ailing Anthony at halftime, but they were examining the knee.
[UPDATE] Via The Star Ledger:
Carmelo Anthony didn’t necessarily injure his knee in the first half of Monday’s comeback win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Knicks’ leading scorer said the joint had actually been bothering him for some time.
Anthony said he had an MRI a few days ago that was clean and added that the Knicks’ doctors don't think "it's too serious." But he said he feels tightness in the back of his knee and that it hasn't been established why.
“My knee gave out,” Anthony said after the game, as quoted by the New York Post’s Fred Kerber. “My leg gave out.”
Anthony will be reevaluated today in Detroit and could play against the Pistons on Wednesday.
