From the team’s PR:
Carmelo Anthony had a soft tissue fluid collection of his posterior right knee aspirated today in NY. He is questionable for Sunday at LA.

Like seemingly everything surrounding the Knicks and their injured players, the team’s decisions end up creating more questions than answers.
The ones that immediately come to mind are, why didn’t the team drain the fluid initially to expedite Anthony’s return to the court instead of waiting, and then, why fly him back to New York to get this taken care of, when there are surely plenty of competent medical professionals on the West coast that just as easily could have performed this procedure.
We’ll never know, obviously, but all that matters to Knicks fans is that the treatment that will ultimately speed up Carmelo’s return to the court has finally been completed. Playing Sunday back in Los Angeles seems like a stretch, and an unnecessary risk given the fact that New York will only go as far as Anthony can take the team once the postseason begins. But we’ll see what happens.
