Carmelo Anthony Takes Huge Risk With Rehab

Knicks_Carmelo_Anthony_2013New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony knows that he took a “huge risk” when he decided not to have surgery to repair a tear in his left shoulder and focused on rehabbing it instead.

But so far, he’s “ecstatic” with the results.

Anthony admitted Saturday night that he played with a torn rotator cuff and partially torn labrum in his left shoulder late last season.

The injury hampered him in the final games of the regular season and in the playoffs.

Instead of going under the knife to fix his shoulder, Anthony opted in the offseason to try and fix the injury through an intensive rehab.
