New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony plans to play at theMiami Heat on Sunday, despite having a right shoulder injury.

Anthony said Saturday that the injury is a deep bruise or light sprain and that he has trouble lifting the shoulder. He received treatment for the tight shoulder at the team's facility. He sustained the injury during Wednesday night's win over the Brooklyn Nets.

Anthony also played in Friday's 90-89 loss the Washington Wizards, but clearly struggled. He scored just 10 points on five-for-14 shooting with eight rebounds and five assists. However, he attempted no free throws and committed nine turnovers.
