Knicks' Anthony set for return Wednesday

The SportsXchange

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony planned to return to action Wednesday night against Orlando after missing six of the past eight games with a knee injury.

Anthony told reporters after a morning shootaround that he was experiencing no pain in his right knee. He had fluid drained from it last Thursday. A sore hamstring also has been an issue.

"I feel good as of right now, so I'll be ready to play tonight," Anthony said.

Anthony's return will be a welcome addition to a team that's without Tyson Chandler (neck) and Kurt Thomas (foot).

Anthony is averaging 22.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this season.
