We know for sure the NBA will resume the 2019-2020 season next month and now it appears Carmelo Anthony isn’t on board with this plan.
Anthony told Turner Sports’ Ernie Johnson that he is “up in the air” about playing in the resumed season.
“As far as actually playing and going back down into Orlando, I’m still up in the air a little bit because I really don’t, we don’t have all the details,” Anthony said. “We don’t know a lot of information, so until we have that, it’s hard to just commit to that 100 percent.”
When the Blazers return to action, they will have eight regular-season games to make up ground on the eighth-place Memphis Grizzlies before the playoffs start. Anthony was averaging 15 points per game for the Blazers before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
If the Blazers are going to clinch the final playoff spot in the west, they will definitely need Anthony’s game to do it.
