After going through a pregame workout, Carmelo Anthony decided he felt well enough to play.

Anthony returns after missing the prior two games with hand and foot injuries. His right ankle has been the most bothersome lately, but apparently it felt well enough for him to come back to face the Pistons.

Anthony has been mired in an awful shooting slump, as he shot 40-for-126 in his last six games before sitting down. The Knicks are in a worse slump. They’ve dropped nine of their last 10 and three straight.
