Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony Is Out 1-2 Weeks With Strained Groin

Don't Miss Out —
Follow us on:

Feb. 7 (Bloomberg) -- New York Knicks All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony will miss one to two weeks after straining his right groin in the first quarter of last night’s 99-88 victory against the Utah Jazz.

Anthony’s status was announced today at practice, Knicks spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz said in an e-mail. The team is 0-3 this season without the 27-year-old forward.

Anthony was injured running the floor in the first quarter at Madison Square Garden. The four-time National Basketball Association All-Star was evaluated by trainers on the sideline before going to the locker room, and didn’t return to the game.

Acquired by the Knicks from the Denver Nuggets midway through last season, Anthony leads the team in points (22.3), assists (4.2) and turnovers (3.0) per game. New York is 10-15, 10th in the 15-team Eastern Conference.

The Knicks, who play at the Washington Wizards tomorrow, also played last night without six-time All-Star forward Amar’e Stoudemire, who is with his family in Florida following the death of his older brother, Hazell. There is no timetable for Stoudemire’s return.
