Tommy DeeI think it makes sense for the Knicks to have their own people evaluate Melo’s possible injury. Remember, they didn’t let Amar’e compete for the national team because of lack of insurance on his knee. Dolan has always been super cautious with stars since Allan Houston’s injury. Injuries, however minor can devastate teams.
