Carmelo Anthony Injures Arm, Says He Could Miss All-Star Game

Mike Woodson, Carmelo AnthonyNEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony‘s All-Star game start could be in jeopardy after he received a deep bruise in his right arm that caused numbness.

Anthony says he wants to play Sunday in Houston but is “not going to force it.”

“As bad as I would want to play in the All-Star game, participate, if I can’t go, I can’t go,” he said. “Nothing I can do about that.”

Anthony was hurt early in the Knicks’ 92-88 loss to Toronto on Wednesday when he tried to step in front of a driving DeMar DeRozan and took an elbow to his biceps. Anthony says it created a contusion and left him battling a “dead arm” throughout the game.

Anthony finished with 12 points on 5-of-24 shooting.
