Carmelo Anthony Out A Week

Melo’s right elbow contusion isn’t getting any better and as a result, he will sit out a week to heal up. However, he should be ready to go Sunday night against the Knicks and his jab jumper should be fine.

“A lot of people just recommended me to take some time,” said Anthony, who went along with the decision when “friends, brothers, family, agents, doctors” were among those who told him Sunday he should rest so the injury doesn’t “linger throughout the year.”
