Melo shoulder injury revelations
Carmelo Anthony said he took a “huge risk’’ this offseason in opting not to have left-shoulder surgery and claimed he also had a torn rotator cuff to go along with a partially torn labrum.
Anthony said he’s “ecstatic’’ it has all worked out because he feels no pain so far through two preseason games. Coach Mike Woodson gave him Saturday night off against the Celtics at Verizon Wireless Arena, in a 111-81 loss, in the second night of a back-to-back.
“It was all types of stuff going on in there,’’ Anthony said in his first detailed remarks on his decision this summer. “It was messed up.’’
