Carmelo Anthony will not play against the Thunder tonight

Matt Moore of CBS Sports reports that Carmelo Anthony will not suit up tonight against the Thunder:

Carmelo Anthony injured his knee earlier this week and has been day-to-day, missing the Knicks' win Wednesday vs. the Pistons. The Knicks announced Thursday night he is out vs. the Thunder Thursday night. He remains day-to-day.

Mike Woodson will, inexplicably, start James White and Kurth Thomas for Melo and keep Amar'e Stoudemire coming off the bench.

Stoudemire off the bench may not be a terrible idea, as it will truly challenge the OKC bench's ability to put points on the board.

On the other hand, if the only offensive option left for NY is J.R. "the pipe" Smith, this one may be over in a hurry.
