Carmelo to miss Saturday game vs. Thunder

BY foxsports • January 13, 2012

When the Thunder take the court Saturday night against the New York Knicks, they'll notice one less superstar facing them on the other side of the court.

Carmelo Anthony, who injured his ankle and wrist Thursday in a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, has been ruled out for Saturday night's game by Knicks head coach Mike D'Antoni, Marc Berman of The New York Post reports.

Anthony injured his left wrist and right ankle against Memphis. When asked which injury was keeping 'Melo from playing, D'Antoni told The Post both of them were the cause.

Oklahoma City, who enters the game with the best record in the NBA at 10-2, have been off since Wednesday when they defeated the Hornets 95-85 in New Orleans.

The Thunder enter Saturday night's game on a five-game winning streak.
