Knicks' Anthony sidelined by sprained left ankle
Anthony was hurt Monday in a victory at Orlando and hoped to play Wednesday, but the Knicks announced he would not be in uniform about 50 minutes before tipoff.
It's the first game this season missed for Anthony, who averages 26.3 points, second to Durant's 28.1. Anthony edged him to win last season's scoring title.
The Knicks did have Kenyon Martin, who has missed the last five games with a strained abdominal muscle.
