Feb 23, 2015 1:18 PM

Carmelo Anthony played most of the season with a partial tear of the left patellar tendon.

The debridement part of Thursday’s surgery was to clean out the calcium deposits that formed within the partial tear, so the tear could be repaired.

Had the surgery just been a debridement, an eight-week rehab would have been in place.

Anthony wait until after the All-Star Game to end his season and undergo surgery.
