NBA roundup: Knicks' Anthony questionable for Saturday

The SportsXchange

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony sustained a sprained left ankle in Thursday night's win and was listed as questionable for Saturday night's game against Cleveland.

No X-rays were taken of the ankle and Anthony will have no additional tests, the team said Friday during a day off from practice.

Anthony had scored 30 points Thursday night when he collided with Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard on a drive and landed on his left ankle. Anthony left the game shortly afterward, but the Knicks (17-5) went on to boost their home record to 9-0 this season.

It's the second injury for Anthony this season. He missed two games after he received stitches for a cut on his left middle finger.

--Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday, the team's leading scorer, will miss Friday's game against Indiana and probably will be sidelined for a few more games because of a sprained foot sustained on Wednesday, CSNPhilly.com reported Friday.

Holiday played more than 40 minutes against the Bulls and scored 26 points, but does not know exactly when the injury occurred.

Holiday leads the team in scoring (18.4 points per game), assists (8.9) and minutes played (38.5).

-- LeBron James plans to play through a sore shoulder and be on the floor Saturday night for the Miami Heat in a game against Washington.

James sat out practice Friday with a bruised shoulder that he injured during a fall in Wednesday night's loss to Golden State.

--Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez was scheduled to start Friday's game against Detroit after missing the previous seven games with a sprained right foot.

Lopez, 24, is averaging 18.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.5 blocks.

--Guard Malcolm Lee, who has started 12 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves this season, will be out indefinitely with a knee injury sustained on Wednesday, the team announced on Friday.

Lee is averaging 4.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 18.1 minutes per game this season. He started 12 of the last 13 games for Minnesota.

---The Houston Rockets sent forward Terrence Jones and forward/center Donatas Motiejunas to their Developmental League team on Friday.

Jones, a 6-foot-9 rookie from Kentucky, and Montiejunas, a 7-footer from Lithuania, will rejoin Rio Grande Valley.
