NEW YORK -- Carmelo Anthony is unlikely to play Tuesday night in Brooklyn and could be done for the season, meaning he has potentially played his last game with the New York Knicks.

Anthony was getting his sore right shoulder evaluated Tuesday morning and coach Mike Woodson says the Knicks' leading scorer "probably won't" play against the Nets. The Knicks end their season at home Wednesday against Toronto.

Woodson says his preference is to shut Anthony down unless Anthony asks to play, and even then Woodson says that "I'm going to tell him I'm not going to play him. That's what I'm going to do."

Anthony is missing the playoffs for the first time in his 11-year career. He has said he plans to become a free agent in July.

Woodson also will decide before the game if Amare Stoudemire will play.
