Carmelo Anthony will be a game-time decision for the New York Knicks on Saturday night when they take on the Chicago Bulls, according to Jonah Ballow. Anthony cut his finger while diving over the Knicks bench on Wednesday against the Charlotte Bobcats. He required five stitches in the middle finger of his non-shooting hand, and sat out the following night, when the Knicks defeated the Miami Heat. Without Anthony, Raymond Felton led the Knicks with 27 points.
Anthony is currently third in the NBA in scoring, with an average of 26.4 points per game. Anthony also averages 6.7 rebounds per game. The forward has scored at least 20 points in each of his last 11 games.
Without Anthony, the Knicks fired 44 3-point attempts on Thursday, which was the most any team has attempted all season. Even with Anthony, the Knicks have used the 3-pointer more than any other team. Anthony has made a career-high 43.5 percent of his 3-point attempts this season.
