NEW YORK (AP) — Carmelo Anthony is set to rejoin the Knicks’ starting lineup and take part in the Linsanity for the first time since it began sweeping New York.
The All-Star forward was in the starting lineup Monday night for the New York’s game against the New Jersey Nets. Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni says Anthony, who missed the last seven games with a groin injury, was ready to go, and guard Baron Davis is also expected to make his season debut for New York.
Anthony hasn’t played since Feb. 6, the first game Jeremy Lin became a starter with the Knicks. Anthony played six minutes against Utah, but Lin scored 28 and the Knicks won their second of what turned out to be seven straight victories.
Anthony is averaging 22 points per game.
