Carmelo Anthony reflects on life in Baltimore, NBA career, title dreams & desire for more: wapo.st/1z9EJqY http://t.co/fozbbKbhRU

Chris Herring

Get Melo healthy would be my only prescription. If you don't do that, you're honestly wasting the team's future and its salary cap money.

Al Iannazzone

Melo says "multiple people" have advised him to "shut it down." He's not sure what it will take for him to do it: newsday.com/sports/basketb…

#Knicks say Amar'e & Melo are questionable tomorrow vs. The Suns

Carmelo, Charles Barkley, Phil Jackson and, yeah, some guys who played, make news in Chicago. Spoiler: Knicks lose: bit.ly/1zGBnLf

Jorge Sierra

Carmelo Anthony very insightful on his motivations here. wapo.st/1zEBuWg If you have five minutes, give it a read.

Al Iannazzone

Minus Melo, Knicks battle Bulls, lose again but Stoudemire calls it "a moral victory." newsday.com/sports/basketb…

#Bulls Dunleavy issues metaphor for losing out on Carmelo, whom he calls "Bentley.'' Car wreck continues for #Knicks nyp.st/1JcQtMs

Marc Berman

Dunleavy says #Bulls are OK without "The Bentley'' that is Carmelo as #Knicks season continues on as car wreck nyp.st/1JcQtMs

Marc Berman

Anthony decided to take Chicago game off to rest left knee as #Bulls keep rolling along without Carmelo nyp.st/1JcQtMs

Joe Cowley

Bulls handle Melo-less Knicks even without Rose and Gibson - read it - chicagosuntimes.com/sports/live-kn…

Joe Cowley

And by the way - The Knicks are awful with or without Melo on the court.

Bulls win w/out D.Rose over the Knicks w/out Melo 103-97 #TattooPHxNBA #HoopJunkies

Roberto Martin

Final @Chicago Bulls 103-@New York Knicks 97. @Pablo Prigioni 5pts (1/3 t2 y 1/1 tl)+2reb+1rec en 12m04s. Butler 35pts. No jugaron Rose y Melo. #NBA

Michael Lee

Barkley said staying with NYK would help Carmelo Anthony provide "generational wealth." Melo discussed that here: wapo.st/1z9EJqY

Rob Peterson

So, this is what the Bulls would look like if they signed Melo, but he and Rose were out for the same game ...

Chris Littman

Melo 11. http://t.co/7Gy55NFqHB

Adam Zagoria

Today in #Knick-Land: Melo sits @NateSilver538 says 3% shot at winning NBA title by 2019 Barkley rips team Phil chimes in on Twitter. Twice.

Steve Popper

I wonder if what kept Melo from signing with Chicago was he, like @Al Iannazzone, did not know that their pizza has cheese on it.

Joe Cowley

Bulls wouldn't have had this depth, and might have had another starter with a knee problem. Golf clap for Melo being selfish.

Joe Cowley

Maybe the Melo rejection is proving to be a blessing in disguise.

Joe Cowley

Who would have guessed that Gasol's 34-year-old knees are in a better place than Melo's $124 million knees?

Kurt Helin

Carmelo Anthony considering shutting down because of knee injury dlvr.it/7sPqHD

Mike McGraw

Joakim Noah is expected to start tonight after missing four games with ankle sprain. Carmelo Anthony (knee) is not playing. #Bulls

Marc Berman

Amar'e: "I talked to coach and said no way I can sit this one out (with Melo missing).''

Dennis Rodman

The Carmelo Anthony conundrum - The contents of this page have not been reviewed or endorsed by the Chicago Bulls. ow.ly/2SiKOE

Nick Friedell

I feel bad for anybody who bought a ticket to this game: No Carmelo and no Rose.

Steve Popper

Amare said he went to Fisher and said he'd go tonight once he found out Melo wasn't playing.

Al Iannazzone

Amar'e said he went to Fisher and with Carmelo out he wanted to play and be there for his team.

Michael Lee

No need to watch... RT @Matt Moore No Rose No Melo No Noah No Hope RT @Chris Herring Knicks say Carmelo won't play tonight vs CHI

Chris Herring

To those asking abt Stoudemire, yes, he was initially scheduled to take tonight off for rest purposes. But w/ Melo out, he decided to play.

Sam Smith

Stoudemire playing now since 'Melo out; Knix say change of heart to help team; most assume just means he'll get some shots now

Chuck Swirsky

No Melo No Rose but @34Billy42 and I will have the call at 630 CT pre Bulls Radio Net ESPN 1000

Steve Aschburner

So no Derrick Rose (ill), no Carmelo Anthony (L knee soreness) tonight in Chicago.

Mike McGraw

Derek Fisher is the softest-talking coach in the league, but I think he said Amare is playing after all, since Carmelo is out. #Bulls-Knicks

Nick Friedell

Fisher says Carmelo is out tonight. Amare, who was going to sit out for a rest day, is now going to play.

Michael Scotto

Carmelo Anthony (sore left ankle) is OUT tonight against the Chicago Bulls. Amar'e Stoudemire will dress according to the New York Knicks.

Ian Begley

#Knicks say Carmelo Anthony will not play tonight vs. Chicago. He has lingering soreness in his left knee.

Andrew Keh

The Knicks have deleted the tweet about it being an ankle issue with Carmelo Anthony. So it's the knee, probably.

Demian Belmonte

Rose no será la única baja en el primer encuentro de la noche. Carmelo Anthony tampoco jugará con los Knicks por sus dolores de rodilla.

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo won't play tonight

Marc Berman

Carmelo officially out. Stoudemire knew that recovery day made no sense any more.

Andrew Keh

The Knicks say that Carmelo Anthony will sit out tonight. They said it's a sore left ankle.

Tina Cervasio
