The New York Knicks are hoping to get a present on Christmas morning when they assess Carmelo Anthony's ailing left ankle before facing the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Knicks star is a game-time decision for Wednesday after spraining his ankle in the Knicks' victory in Orlando on Monday. "We got to weigh it out," head coach Mike Woodson said of whether to play Anthony at less than 100 percent on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. "He came in and got treatment, and he will get treatment probably in the evening and then tomorrow when he wakes up and comes in, we will have to assess it at that time." The Knicks have already ruled out starting point guard Raymond Felton, who strained his right groin against Orlando. Woodson said Felton is day-to-day moving forward. The Knicks could have Kenyon Martin back after the power forward missed the past five games with a strained abdominal muscle. "The bright side is I think Kenyon, if everything goes according to plan when he comes in tomorrow morning, he might be a guy that suits and plays a little bit," Woodson said. "So that is a plus. But at the end of the day, we still got to get Pablo [Prigioni] and Raymond back because they are such a big part of what we did last season." If Anthony cannot play, the Knicks will face Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook without the reigning scoring champ, Felton and Prigioni. Metta World Peace (knee) is banged up and didn't play against Orlando. Martin's status is questionable as well.
