Carmelo Anthony may have played his last game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.

The free-agent-to-be will huddle with the New York Knicks' medical staff in the coming days to determine whether he plays in the team's final two regular-season games. Anthony has been playing with an injured right shoulder for the past 11 days.

He said on Sunday night that he may get an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

"Maybe in the next couple of days, I’ll try to make something happen with that," Anthony said.

The Knicks close the season with a road game against the Nets on Tuesday and a home game against Toronto on Wednesday. It wouldn't be surprising if Anthony sat out of the final two games of the season. The Knicks are eliminated from the postseason and Anthony is still feeling discomfort in his shoulder.

"Today, early it felt good. Throughout the course of the game, it went right back to the way it was feeling like yesterday and the day before," Anthony said.

Anthony first suffered the injury on April 2 against Brooklyn. In his next two games, Anthony shot a shot combined 9-for-31. He said after both games that his shoulder impacted him.

In the past two games, Anthony has made 15-of-30 shots.

"I’m going to try to be cautious," he said after the win over the Bulls. "I’m going to talk to everybody, see what they want to do and go from there."
