According to the Daily News, the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony played through a partially torn labrum during this year’s playoffs and may now face surgery.

The team says they hope the injury will heal on its own and is going to wait 3-4 weeks before re-evaluating the situation.

If surgery is needed, it could sideline Anthony from three to five months and could compromise his availability for the start of training camp in October. Throughout the playoffs, Anthony refused to use the injury as an excuse, even though his shooting percentage dipped considerably. Having to play against two defensive-minded teams in Boston and Indiana also didn’t help, but it was obvious that Anthony, the NBA’s scoring champion, wasn’t 100%.

Anthony was unavailable for comment.

During the Knicks’ series against the Indiana Pacers, Anthony made just over 43% of his shots. In 12 playoff games, he managed to shoot only 40% while shooting 45% during the regular season.
