Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is shooting 42.7 percent from the floor, partly because he is dealing with a sprained right ankle and trying to dribble and shoot with a sore left wrist. It sounds like the pain in the wrist is going to linger for long enough that, rather than rest it, Anthony is going to have to learn to shoot through it.
“My ankle’s a little sore but I just wanted to test it out again today,” said Anthony, who tweaked his sprained ankle in the Knicks’ 102-93 loss to the Magic on Monday and spent yesterday’s practice reworking his shot to deal with his wrist. “It’s a little bit better, especially after twisting it again. The wrist is what it is at this point. But I’m getting through. I’m going to be all right,’’
