The SportsXchange

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony will not be suspended for his brief altercation with Philadelphia 76ers center Spencer Hawes on Sunday night, reported.

Anthony hit Hawes in the back of the head while the two were battling for position for a rebound.

Hawes angrily confronted Anthony after being hit, but Hawes was pushed away by Knicks center Tyson Chandler.

A double technical was called on Hawes and Chandler, and Anthony was called for a flagrant foul.

Anthony had been suspended for a game for confronting Kevin Garnett in the arena tunnel after a loss to the Celtics last month.
