At 10-43, the New York Knicks’ season is just about over. Carmelo Anthony‘s recent announcement might solidly what many already thought.

The star forward has been dealing with soreness in his left knee for months now. Anthony told ESPN Radio Thursday that his knee might force him shut down the season early.

“It’s very likely. It’s very likely. Now I’ve got to start thinking about the future,” Anthony told Marc Stein, Marc Kestecher, and P.J. Carlesimo in an interview on ESPN Radio.

“This season is this season. So I really want to just sit down with my team and sit down with the proper people to just kind of plan this thing out and see exactly what I have to do to get done and just to fix it.”

Melo did say that his knee won’t force him to disappoint the fans who voted him into his 8th All-Star appearance.

“Even if I come out and just play a couple minutes and just wave,” Anthony said over the air air. “I don’t think the fans deserve [seeing me miss the game].”

The Knicks are 0-13 without Anthony in the lineup. The team is on pace for the franchises first 60-loss season.
