The Knicks are listing Carmelo Anthony as "probable" for Thursday's game in San Antonio, the opener of their three-game Texas trip that will also take them to Houston and Dallas.

Anthony has missed the Knicks' last three games with a sprained left ankle but went through some contact in practice on Tuesday. The Knicks (9-21), who have lost all three games without Anthony, were traveling Wednesday and did not practice.

The return of Anthony would be timely for the Knicks, who likely will be without point guards Raymond Felton (groin) and Pablo Prigioni (broken big toe) against the Spurs, who lead the Southwest Division with a 25-7 record.
