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