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.
