Anthony Leaves Game with Ankle Sprain

Carmelo Anthony was bent on wrecking Mike D’Antoni’s Garden return, even if he had to wreck his own ankle to do it.
Anthony brutalized the pathetic Lakers’ defense for 30 points in just 22 minutes, 55 seconds of action. His brilliant night was cut short when he sustained a sprained left ankle midway through the third quarter after landing badly on a hard foul by Lakers center Dwight Howard.
Anthony, who was not on crutches, said he’s unsure if he will be available for tomorrow night’s home game against Cleveland, but certainly it seems he would want to be back Monday for the return of Linsanity and the Rockets.
“I don’t think it’s anything serious,’’ Knicks GM Glen Grunwald said.
“I just took a hard fall,’’ Anthony said. “It was one of them awkward falls. My ankle is a little sore. [But I’m] real sore right now, ankle, knee hip. I couldn’t catch my fall.’
