The New York Knicks announced that forward Carmelo Anthony, who has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, is probable to return on Thursday night against the San Antonio Spurs.

Anthony returned to practice on Monday and began running for the first time since injuring his ankle against the Orlando Magic on Dec. 23. The injury occurred when Anthony's left foot rolled after he landed on the foot of Orlando's Tobias Harris.

"Still some swelling in there, still some tenderness," Anthony said after Monday's practice. "Eventually I'll have to play with a little bit of tenderness, a little bit of pain here and there."

The Knicks (9-21) have lost all three games without Anthony by an average of 18.7 points.

Anthony is averaging 26.8 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.

"I definitely hate sitting out watching the games," Anthony said Monday. "I'm trying to do what I have to do to get back and do what's best for everybody."
