Nuggets' Anthony returns vs. Knicks
Anthony was originally hurt on Nov. 30, when he was forced to leave a victory over Houston after 14 minutes with just two points, ending his streak of 222 straight games in double figures.
Anthony is averaging 20.5 points, lowest of his career.
"Pain's a hard thing to figure out for a player and he's got tremendous responsibility with a piece of his body that is the key to him scoring points," Denver coach George Karl said.
