Carmelo Anthony says his shoulder is no longer an issue

Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony says the small shoulder tear he suffered late last season is no longer an issue.

“I’m good. My shoulder feels good,” he said Saturday at his annual youth camp at Queens College.

An MRI taken shortly after the season showed that Anthony had suffered a small tear in his left shoulder. He said the injury affected him in the playoffs.

“I was surprised that I was able to get through it the way that I did,” Anthony said Saturday. “When it happened, I knew something was wrong with it, and I was kind of being a little bit naive and trying to fight it and toughen it out. But to feel the difference now … it’s night and day.”
