Melo should not play against Lithuania. It's important to rest and prevent risks. Maybe play against Korea to condition himself and prepare mentally and physically for the championship. Melo is looking really really good. Could be a top 3 scorer next year. I do not want to see him get hurt again (especially involving his knee). Next season will be Carmelo's redemption year if he can stay healthy. With his performance, there is no way he does not make the all star team and will put himself at par with Wade and Bron again, altho talent wise he was always up there with them.
When I first saw the news report of his injury, my heart sank. I am very glad he is ok. I hope the hyperextension doesn't affect his performance later on tho. He has been the stud of the team.
