New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony could miss his side's final two fixtures of the campaign due to a troublesome shoulder injury.
Anthony has been carrying a knock since the beginning of April but decided to play through his injury in hope that he can help the New York Knicks to a playoff spot.
However Anthony is now expected to miss the New York Knicks' games against the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors as the Eastern Conference franchise can no longer qualify for the playoffs.
The New York Knicks believe there is no point risking Anthony in what are deemed to be dead rubbers.
News of Anthony's absence is likely to reignite rumours regarding his future as many are suggesting that the power forward may have played his last game for the New York Knicks.
Anthony has the option to opt out of the final year of his contract - which has heightened speculation regarding his future.
The 29-year-old may choose to leave New York Knicks after a nightmare season at Madison Square Garden.
Woodson said on Anthony: “I don’t know what he’s going to do. He hasn’t indicated to me that he’s gonna sit down.
“That’s Melo. There’s one thing I can say, you can’t point it at him, because he’s been there all year. He’s had a hell of a season for us.”
Woodson has also been tipped to leave the Garden at the end of the season - due to his side's poor form during the course of the campaign.
