Carmelo Anthony: (Finger) Out Thursday Againt Miami
Update: Anthony (finger) will sit out Thursday against the Heat, the Knicks' official Twitter reports.

Recommendation: Coach Mike Woodson had said the decision of whether or not to play was Anthony's to make, and he apparently didn't like the way the laceration on his finger was affecting his shooting during warmups. The injury doesn't seem like something that will keep Anthony out for a long period of time, so there remains a strong chance that he'll play Saturday against the Bulls. Kurt Thomas will take Anthony's place in the starting lineup Thursday.
