Carmelo Anthony Injures Right Arm, May Miss All-Star Game

Melo-hurt

Carmelo Anthony may be forced to sit out the All-Star game after suffering a contusion to his right bicep in Wednesday night’s 92-88 loss to the Toronto Raptors.

The injury happened in the first quarter due to a collision with Raptors player DeMar DeRozan, resulting in Anthony’s shooting arm being completely numb the rest of the game.

“It was kind of like a dead arm out there,” Anthony confirmed.

He would have one his worst shooting performances this season, going 5-24 from the field (1-6 from downtown) and 1-4 at the free throw line.

Anthony will be overly careful in deciding whether to start for the East this Sunday in the All-Star game. Should he feel any pain, he vowed to sit out and rest.

I’m not going to force it, definitely not going to force it. As bad as I would want to play in the All-Star Game, participate, if I can’t go, I can’t go. Nothing I can do about that.

***************************************

Well, at least Anthony has an injury excuse for last night’s performance. Why was everyone else throwing up bricks?
