The Knicks are now concerned this injury could effect Anthony all season, and fantasy owners should share the same concern. Shane Larkin started in Anthony's place in the second half on Monday.

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) did not play Monday against the Knicks and may miss three or more games, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen.
