Carmelo Anthony says he suffered a "deep bruise" or "light sprain" in his right shoulder but still plans to play in the New York Knicks' key game on Sunday against the Miami Heat.

Anthony first hurt his shoulder on Wednesday.

"It feels tight," he said. "It's hard to lift up; it's hard to do things."

Anthony reiterated that the injury impacted him throughout the Knicks' loss to the Washington Wizards on Friday.

He had a season-high nine turnovers in the game and scored 10 points on 5-for-14 shooting.
