Carmelo To Miss Second Straight Game With Knee Injury

Carmelo Anthony will miss his second straight game Friday night against the Sacramento Kings with a hyperextended left knee.

Anthony injured his knee Tuesday in the Knicks’ 100-94 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

“It was bothering me the whole game,” Anthony said of his knee. “I thought it was worse. But then once I went out there and starting playing again, I think the adrenaline got me through it. Then after the game is when I thought it was a lot worse.”

Anthony hopes to return Jan. 1 against Portland.

“In the N.B.A. when you miss one day it feels like it’s been a week,” Anthony said. “The injury occurred Tuesday. It’s only been a couple of days. I really want my knee to settle down. I don’t think it’s frustrating because you can’t control these types of things. It’s just a matter of me coming back where I left off.”
