It doesn't look like Carmelo Anthony's right hand injury will keep him from playing in Sunday's game against Chicago.

Anthony said his shooting hard was "very sore" after Friday's game against Golden State. The power forward said his hand was hit "multiple times" during the game and he said he may need to get it examined prior to Sunday's game against the Bulls.

But Anthony is not listed on the Knicks' injury report on the media notes for the Chicago game. So he should be able to play.

The team did not announce that Anthony underwent any exams on his hand.

It is unclear when Anthony initially injured the hand, though he appeared to make contact with Andre Iguodala early in the second half.

He was shaking his hand out after the shot.

Anthony finished with 23 points on 7-for-26 shooting. He had 16 rebounds.
