Anthony has been dealing with a few different injuries, with right knee issues leading to hamstring problems. The Knicks' star has missed the last three games after getting fluid drained from his hamstring, but he luckily avoided cartilage damage.

New York has dealt with a number of injuries this season, and they have been hit especially hard recently. In addition to Anthony, Tyson Chandler has been battling knee and neck issues, and Amare Stoudemire recently underwent surgery on his knee. Kurt Thomas is also set to miss two-to-four weeks with a stress reaction around a stress fracture in his right foot.

The Knicks had been struggling with all their injury problems, losers of four in a row before finally getting back in the win column with a 90-83 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday.
