NEW YORK, May 23 (UPI) -- New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has a partially torn labrum and may require surgery, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

Citing a Knicks source it didn't identify, the newspaper said the cartilage tear in Anthony's left shoulder showed up in an MRI and team officials said they are hoping it will heal with rest -- and without the necessity for surgery.

The Knicks plan to re-evaluate the injury in three-to-four weeks. If surgery is required, Anthony could miss the start of Knicks training camp in October, the newspaper said.

The report said Anthony had been in chronic pain since injuring his arm in an April 14 game against Indiana and that he reinjured the arm May 1 in Game 5 of the Knicks' Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against Boston.

The Knicks advanced to the conference semifinals against Indiana but were eliminated in six games.
