An MRI on Wednesday revealed that New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has a small tear in his left shoulder. The 28-year-old reportedly suffered the injury late in the regular season and decided to play through it.
The Knicks are hoping Anthony can avoid surgery on the injured shoulder. The team plans to allow the league’s reigning scoring champion to rest for three to four weeks before making a determination on what to do about the injury. If it is not healed at that point in time, surgery will be considered.
