Carmelo Anthony trips over own feet, tweaks knee, leaves game (VIDEO)

Mar 4, 2013, 9:43 PM EDT

UPDATE 11:58 pm: Carmelo Anthony said after the game this had been nothing new — his knee had been bothering him for a few weeks and this was more just a mold aggravation of what has already been going on. The good news is that no tests are scheduled and this is not some serious injury.

However, he will be re-evaluated on Tuesday and feels likely will be out Wednesday night and maybe more games after that. Here is what he told ESPNNewYork.com.

“It’s just sore, not pain, sore and stiffness,” Anthony said in a crowded corridor outside New York’s locker room. “It’s been going on for a while now.”

9:43 pm: Well, that was a fluke. It’s the kind of think you expect in U8 soccer, not so much on the NBA hardwood.

But Carmelo Anthony tweaked his knee bad enough tripping over his own feet that he had to leave the game in the Knicks eventual win over the Cavaliers and he did not come out of the locker room for the second half. As soon as we know more we will update this post.

Anthony was walking like it was nothing all that serious right after it happened., but at this point in the season the Knicks are not going to take any chances. He is the anchor of the franchise and the guy they must have clicking if they are going to make any kind of serious playoff run.

      the lizard is bad ass.

      what did you think about Melo?

      I think his knee has been hurting for a while, did you know he tweeked the knee
      a few weeks ago, second time, we can win a few games without him but we do
      have stat so lets see how he is physically. I doubt he plays tonight.

    If this was Amare they’d have to amputate.

      Amare plays, he just doesn’t have any D.
      They can win with him, maybe Melo can lay low.

    He’s not getting my vote for MVP.

      the gecko?

      I give co MVP this year to Durant putting up career numbers in shooting % across the board and LBJ. Kobe gets Comeback player of the year, after saving his marriage and $150 million payout. Irving is Rookie of the Year and Rodman gets oldtimer kicks ass award.

        Among the many flaws here, Irving is not a rookie.

    I gotta send 3M (My Man Melo) a pair of snow shoes so he can learn how to walk with those size16.
