Melo says he'll play through pain

Carmelo Anthony thinks he will not be 100 percent healthy for the rest of the season because of a troublesome right knee injury.

Anthony returned to the floor Monday night for the New York Knicks after missing the previous three games with soreness in his right knee. He struggled in a 92-63 loss at Golden State, missing 11 of 15 shots in 34 minutes and finishing with 14 points.

Anthony told reporters in Oakland, Calif., after the game that his knee affected his play.

"I don't think I'll ever be 100 percent, to be honest with you, but I will play," he said.

Anthony has been dealing with stiffness in the back of his right knee for several weeks due to a buildup of fluid.
