'Melo sidelined by sprained ankle
December 25, 2013
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) - Carmelo Anthony will miss the New York Knicks' game against Oklahoma City with a sprained left ankle, unable to take part in a Christmas Day showdown with Kevin Durant.
Anthony was hurt Monday in a victory at Orlando and hoped to play Wednesday, but the Knicks announced he would not be in uniform about 50 minutes before tipoff.
It's the first game this season missed for Anthony, who averages 26.3 points, second to Durant's 28.1. Anthony edged him to win last season's scoring title.
The Knicks did have Kenyon Martin, who has missed the last five games with a strained abdominal muscle.
