Think I might go show the @GeneralDunker some love tonight at for there home game with my bro @lifeofthePARDI #SulliGs

Frank Isola

For the record, the Knicks are winless since Phil sent this emotional pre-game tweet to the Knicks: "go get some road wins this week."

Marc Berman

Precious Knicks practicing at SMU today where Larry Brown rules. Brown destroyed Mills last year for Woody treatment.

Steve Popper

From last night - Knicks lose and game in Houston and maybe more with Carmelo barely able to walk: bit.ly/1HEcLGi

Meanwhile, still trying to understand why Ken Mauer and his crew opted not to blow the whistle on fouls in the last 8 seconds last night.

Calderon on life without Melo: "It looks like it's always something going on. We can not be full with everybody at the same time."

Chris Herring

......... MT @AdrianPeterson: GRAND JURY DECIDED NOT TO INDICT ME TOO! But that changed a wk LATER! MAYBE,BUT NOT LIKELY N THIS CASE

JR Smith

This is sad! I will never understand how these things keep happening an nothing is being done about… instagram.com/p/vz2K-gtfMb/

Scott Cacciola

Amar'e on Harden: “It was like an angel came down and started calling calls for them. I just don’t see how he was getting those foul calls.”

Ian Begley

#Knicks official says Carmelo Anthony went to a doctor's office in Houston to receive pain medication for his back spasms.

Ian Begley

Carmelo Anthony is expected to fly with the #Knicks to Dallas and was walking on his own, per a team official. That's considered a good sign

Alan Hahn

Walk outside to reality. #handsupdontshoot @ Madison Square Garden instagram.com/p/vz0cqcEEWF/

Tina Cervasio

Carmelo is still expected to fly to Dallas with the team. He is walking but in tremendous pain. It is considered severe back spasms. #Knicks

Tina Cervasio

Melo will be going to a local doctor here in Houston in order to get medication for pain that they do note have here in arena.

Al Iannazzone

Knicks say he is expected to fly with team to Dallas.

Steve Popper

Melo walks out very gingerly. Heading to Houston doctor for pain meds they can not keep in arena. Expected to fly with the team.

Al Iannazzone

Just told by the Knicks he is going to a local doctor in Houston to get medication that they don't have in the arena.

Marc Berman

Melo is flying with team to Dallas but first will visit Houston doctor for pain medication not stored in arena

Scott Cacciola

Carmelo heading to Houston doctor's office to get pain medication, team official says. Expected to fly with team to Dallas.

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo Anthony still in the locker room as just about everyone else is gone

Marc Berman

Melo won't be talking to media. In a lot pain. Knicks will soon update situation.

Al Iannazzone

Melo clearly is in a lot of pain

Steve Popper

Knicks say Carmelo won't speak to the media tonight. In a lot of pain.

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo Anthony will not address the media tonight, another bad sign.

Scott Cacciola

Carmelo will not speak to reporters tonight. Was clearly in pain.

Tina Cervasio

Still has not emerged from trainer's room. RT @201TweetNess: @Alan Hahn @Tina Cervasio guys any word on Melo ??

Steve Popper

Knicks locker room still closed but when door swung open Melo wincing badly trying to move.

Al Iannazzone

Melo is still grimacing in the locker room, not a good sign

Steve Popper

Lot of doctors in and out of Knicks locker room.

Al Iannazzone

Fisher said Melo has back spasms and more should be known in the next 24-48 hours.

Steve Popper

Fisher: Melo suffering from back spasms. Said team should know more in the next 24-48 hours.

Jonah Ballow

Fisher says Melo suffering from back spasms. Said he should know more in the next 24-48 hours. #Knicks

Marc Berman

Melo had treatment this morning that delayed his media availability but not for back. Quads

Alan Hahn

#Knicks PostGame with me @Wally Szcerzbiak and @BillPidto is next on @MSGNetworks. @Tina Cervasio works the locker room from Houston. #

Really odd ending to Knick game, which they lose, 91-86, in HOU. Melo exited in 2Q with back spasms. Marks team's 10th straight L to Rockets

Steve Popper

Knicks trying to foul in final seconds - officials refuse to call it. Jose Calderon fuming.

Jonah Ballow

Keeping Harden quiet over the next 8:17 is going to be the challenge for #Knicks w/ a 6-pt lead.

Marc Berman

Hardaway 3-pointer jolts #Knicks into 78-72 lead with 8:50 left. Melo came out with club down 11. Guys stepping up like Wear, Larkin.

Jonah Ballow

Wear w/ a real solid game tonight. Hitting some midrange jumpers & playing D. He has 7pts off the bench.

Tina Cervasio

UPDATE: I've been told through the #Knicks Carmelo is doubtful to return with ongoing back spasms.

Steve Popper

Carmelo has been in the locker room since 1:44 left in the first half - and is still only Knick in double figures.

Alan Hahn

#Knicks win another 3rd quarter...force 8 Rockets TOs.

Tina Cervasio

Yes. Check that. Cushing went to Bergen Catholic. oops. Was happy to see him. Typed before I thought. Great football HS in NJ regardless.

Tina Cervasio

Don Bosco Alumn, Park Ridge, NJ native, Brian Cushing, ILB for #Texans at #Knicks #Rockets (wonder who he's pulling for).

Chris Herring

Wish I could be numb to stuff like this, but I can't be. It hurts every time; even when you expect it.

Jonah Ballow

This guard heavy lineup is pushing the ball more this half for the #Knicks. They’ll look to get some easier buckets w/ Melo sidelined.

Marc Berman

Before morning shootaround, Carmelo got lots of treatment on trainer's table before speaking to media. Looked like weren't working on knee.

Chris Herring

More important things going on in the country, but for those interested, Knicks have taken 52-51 lead over HOU in 3Q.

Steve Popper

After scoring last 7 points of first half, the Knicks score first 6 of the second half and take a 52-51 lead. Like G5 of '70 Finals? Um no

Steve Popper

Listening to the Grand Jury report as I watch the Knicks here just above curtsied. Just saying yes or no might have been a better idea.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin starts 2nd half. Fisher going w/ 3 guards to counter loss of Melo (back spasms).

Ian Begley

Carmelo Anthony has back spasms. He is questionable to return, #Knicks say.

Marc Berman

Carmelo would've fit right in with #Rockets - injured. Houston missing 3 starters. No Melo to start 2nd half. Larkin.

Chris Herring

Carmelo never came back out to the court after walking off with back issues in the first half. Larkin starts 2nd half in his place.

Steve Popper

Knicks are on the court loosening up for the 2nd half - no sign of Melo.

Marc Berman

Carmelo has back spasms, Knicks say, after that bad landing on J. Questionable to return. Have 1 day off before big game in Dallas.

Scott Cacciola

Knicks say Carmelo has back spasms. Questionable to return.

Tina Cervasio

#Knicks say Carmelo Anthony has back spasms. He is questionable to return.

Al Iannazzone

Knicks say Carmelo Anthony has back spasms. He is questionable to return.

Steve Popper

Knicks say Carmelo Anthony has back spasms. He is questionable to return. He's got 14 points and 7 rebounds in the first half.

Steve Popper

Glad to hear that the Jets game is awful. Should be paying attention to the grand jury result anyway.

Alan Hahn

If Melo gets hurt and misses any extended time, this season becomes 1984-85.

Al Iannazzone

Melo was doubled over. Perhaps it was his back

Chris Herring

May not be the knee. Seemed as if he was struggling to stand up straight. RT @BaileyCarlin: @Chris Herring His knee or his back?

Steve Popper

With 1:44 left in the first half Carmelo is on his way to the locker room - limping slightly.

Scott Cacciola

Carmelo Anthony in obvious discomfort, heading to locker room late in the second quarter. Unclear what happened.

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo Anthony wincing and walking gingerly to the locker room with a trainer.

Chris Herring

Looks like Carmelo may be struggling with his left knee again. Limping back to the locker room with a trainer.

Tina Cervasio

The #Rockets 3-point shooting is REAL. 5-of-15 w 2 min left in half. #Knicks

Steve Popper

Harden is guarding Shumpert - which allows me to try to judge whether his beard goes down lower than Shumpert's flat-top goes up.

Alan Hahn

#Knicks bigs handle the ball a lot in the triangle. Which isn't necessarily a good thing.

Marc Berman

#Knicks start second quarter shooting 2 of 13 and fall behind 41-32 midway through second period. A lot of bricks.
