Melo May Miss 5th Game

By  | 

All-Star Carmelo Anthony continues to nurse a sprained left ankle, missing his forth strait game last night as the Denver Nuggets fell to the New Orleans Hornets.

Anthony has been testing the ankle, appearing on the court for nearly an hour before the game. He managed to hit a string of perimeter shots, but appeared concerned about his ability to drive to the basket.

Nuggets coach George Karl said before last night's game that he wasn't planning to have Anthony available, but it is unclear what the superstar's status will be when the team travels to Memphis tomorrow to take on the Grizzlies.

Anthony's teammates lost by 117-93 to the streaking Hornets.
