This week, New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony revealed that he played with a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder during last year’s playoffs.
While some might have gotten surgery to fix the problem, Carmelo opted to let it heal on it’s own and recently told, the NY Post’s Marc Berman that it was a huge risk by not doing the surgery:
Carmelo Anthony said he took a “huge risk’’ this offseason in opting not to have left-shoulder surgery and claimed he also had a torn rotator cuff to go along with a partially torn labrum.
Anthony said he’s “ecstatic’’ it has all worked out because he feels no pain so far through two preseason games.
“I’ve never been 100 percent in my life but it’s as good as it’s going to get,’’ Anthony added.
