Carmelo Anthony will have his injured left shoulder re-examined in order to determine how to treat it moving forward.

The New York Knicks are hopeful that Anthony will not need surgery and that it will improve with rest.

Anthony originally injured his shoulder during an April 14th win over the Indiana Pacers. Anthony reported that his left arm "popped in and out" when Kevin Garnett yanked his arm in Game 5 against the Boston Celtics.

Anthony had fluid drained from his right knee two months ago but according to the team official Anthony's knee has improved and won't need arthroscopic surgery.
