Even though he's already been voted as a starter for Sunday's NBA All-Star Game in Houston, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony may miss the game due to an injured right bicep muscle, according to a SportsIllustrated.com report Wednesday night.
Anthony made the revelation after the Knicks' 92-88 to the Toronto Raptors.
"It was kind of a dead arm out there," Anthony said after scoring just 12 points on 5-of-24 shooting, far below his normal per-game scoring average of 29 points. He also grabbed 12 rebounds, which is nearly six boards more than his per-game average.
The Knicks went into the All-Star break with losses in their last two games, dropping to 32-18 and 3 1/2 games behind the Miami Heat for the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference.
