SALT LAKE CITY -- Denver forward Carmelo Anthony missed his first game of the season Saturday with a right knee contusion.

The Nuggets were also without point guard Chauncey Billups against the Utah Jazz. Billups did not dress and sat out for the fifth time in six games with a left groin strain.

Anthony is second in the league in scoring at 30 points per game. He had started all 32 games before going being put on the inactive list Saturday.
