New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony suffered a small left shoulder tear late in the regular season that was revealed during an MRI on Wednesday, a league source confirmed.

The Knicks are hopeful Anthony will not need surgery, according to the source, who added the team plans to allow its All-Star to rest for the next three-to-four weeks in an attempt to allow the injury to heal.

If it is not healed at that point, then surgery would be considered, the source said.
