|Knicks Sent A Trainer To Olympics For Carmelo|
Carmelo Anthony's Olympic campaign is taking a slight toll on the forward's body. Melo has complained of a tight hamstring forcing the Knicks to send over their trainer to work on him as Team USA prepare for their semi-final clash with Argentina.
Team USA forward Carmelo Anthony said at yesterday’s Olympic practice he is dealing with a “tight’’ left hamstring, causing Knicks trainer Anthony Goenaga to be summoned back to London to work with him.
Goenaga was with Team USA early in these Games working with Anthony and Tyson Chandler, who has a dislocated finger, but Goenaga had returned home. Bringing him back is the Knicks’ call as they like to have their own people treat their superstars, especially with training camp just seven weeks away. The Knicks wouldn’t even allow Amar’e Stoudemire to play for Team USA in the World Championships in 2010.
Anthony, who had a strained groin last season, was hit in that area during Saturday’s victory over Argentina, but said his groin was “healthy.’’
