This shouldn’t come as a surprise that Carmelo Anthony will sit again due to knee soreness. ESPN New York was the first one to report the news that came from Coach Fisher.
Fisher says Carmelo will not play tonight, as expected. #Knicks

This if the fourth game in a row that Melo has been sidelined. He has said in interviews before that he hopes to return by January 15 for the game against the Bucks in London.
Quincy Acy has been receiving a bump in minutes due to the gap that Anthony left. The Knicks come into tonight’s game against the Wizards as more than 10-point underdogs.
