The Knicks may be without Carmelo Anthony – and Amar’e Stoudemire tonight in their final home game vs. Utah before the rugged five-game Western trip. Stoudemire missed shootaround with two sore knees, according to Woodson. Melo didn’t participate in the shootaround as he stayed back in the trainer’s room. Both are “game-time decisions’’ but seem unlikely to play. “We talked a little bit today and said it was so-so,’’ Woodson said of Anthony. “We’ll just have to see if he’s ready to go tonight.’’ The Stoudemire development is more interesting because he surpassed the medical staff’s 30-minute cap twice during the two-game Rust Belt trip for the first time this season. Stoudemire did stay under the cap vs. Oklahoma City Friday. Stoudemire’s minutes jumped noticeably once Melo went down with a sore/stiff right knee in Cleveland Monday. Stoudemire played 32 minutes in Cleveland and 30:55 in Detroit.
Amar'e, Melo both 'game-time decisions' for Knicks vs. Jazz
