New York Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis apparently felt improvement in his injured knee Friday but is still listed as day-to-day and questionable for Saturday's contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
But Anthony was looking forward to playing on the floor he called home for six-plus seasons regardless. "Play in front of those fans". Anthony said he has stayed in touch with a number of players on the team, but he hasn't been tracking their every game. But at the end of the day, it's business to me.
Kristaps Porzingis is the top fantasy basketball player for the Knicks with a season average of 41.17 fantasy points per game.
Many fans were sad to see Carmelo Anthony leave the New York Knicks. He has one final tune-up before what likely will be an emotional game for him.
Anthony expects to get some cheers from the fans at Madison Square Garden tonight. "It's not like I was there for a year or a season or two seasons. He knows the rims, knows the court, knows everything very well", said Hardaway, who is now sidelined with a stress injury in his left leg. And then I just want to win.
It's been a rough start for Anthony and the Thunder.
But it sure looks like it was the best thing for him and the Knicks.

West Ham then nearly stole all three points right at the end, but Hernandez fired an effort onto the crossbar from 12 yards. I've only read what the boss has said in the media.
Even if an absent Porzingis takes away some of the thunder from the game, Anthony and his new squad should make up for it. Anthony told Thunder reporters earlier in the week that he was eagerly awaiting his MSG return. McDermott is shooting a career high 49 percent from the field. The Knicks are 15-13 so far - by comparison, they were 31-51 in 2016-17 - and Porzingis has been averaging 25.5 points a game and is third in the N.B.A.in blocks. But it hasn't worked out that way yet. "We played very good defensively, which allowed us to run after it and get some easy baskets and to get in a rhythm".
"They're willing to sacrifice and they know that they have to change", Donovan said Friday. I think the damage was done at that point. It's challenging. It's new.
"I don't think they will (boo Anthony)", Thomas said.
It's part of a larger reunion week for the Thunder. Stars Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Anthony are seemingly still adjusting to playing with one another. And Anthony chuckled when asked if it is hard playing with a point guard who is also going 100 miles per hour. But former Knicks president Phil Jackson essentially pushed Anthony out.
And while the Knicks appear on the rise, Anthony is trying to keep the Thunder from getting down.
Anthony's willingness to accept and understand that his time in NY had run its course accelerated the rebuilding process. His teammates said they have his back. "We're used to having the ball in our hands".
