Knicks president Phil Jackson said he expects a positive resolution with Carmelo Anthony, revealing he has made him five separate offers for the free agent to choose from.
The Knicks want nothing more than to keep Melo in the Big Apple, and a decision appears to be coming within the next couple of days. Until LeBron James makes the announcement on his future, expect Anthony to remain undecided, although it is pretty clear where he is heading. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
