Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis back in Knicks’ lineup; Calderon out
NEW YORK (AP) — Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis are back in the lineup for the New York Knicks in their game Friday night against Phoenix.
Jose Calderon remains out with a groin injury, so Langston Galloway will start in his place.
Anthony has missed two straight games with a sore left knee, and Porzingis joined him on the sidelines Thursday in a loss at Toronto because of an upper respiratory illness.
Coach Derek Fisher says he doesn’t believe Porzingis is 100 percent and expects the rookie’s energy to be below normal but says he feels well enough to play.
