Derek Fisher said Carmelo Anthony is in charge of whether he will play through his injured left knee, which was reaggravated on Sunday.
“Carmelo is a veteran player that I think understands his body and where he is and what he’s capable of doing,” Fisher said. “The nights where it’s known that it’s probably best that he’s not out there, he lets us know. We let him know our feelings and what we think and our opinion but he’s a veteran enough player to make those decisions himself.”
Anthony has received expansive treatment on his knee.
“It’s tough," Anthony said. "It’s tough for me physically. But it’s tough to think about that right now. We have nine guys and seeing J.R. and Shump and Cleanthony in a suit and Amar’e resting, it is hard for me to be sitting down.’’
