Melo day-to-day with ankle sprain; Felton remains out

Adam Zagoria, Team Reporter

Carmelo AnthonyCarmelo Anthony is day-to-day with a sprained left ankle that kept him out of Wednesday’s 123-94 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“It just depends on if he says he’s ready to go, then we’ll put him in uniform and play him,” Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Thursday.

As for injured point guard Raymond Felton (strained right groin), he remains out with no timetable on his return.

“He’s still got to seek some medical advice and I’ll probably know more today,” Woodson said.

Neither Anthony nor Felton spoke with the media.

The 9-19 Knicks are about to play a home-and-home with the first-place Toronto Raptors (11-15) beginning Friday in New York.

Despite their poor record, the Knicks remain just three games back of the Raptors.

“Tomorrow’s game is an important game because they sit at the top of the division,” Woodson said.

Knicks need to sweep the home and home with Tor and get to 1 game back cause they're damn sure gonna get swept right out of Texas the 3 games after that.

Stop worrying about the &#$%ing division and start fixing that 25th-ranked defense.
