SAN ANTONIO -- Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony missed his fourth consecutive game with a sprained left ankle Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs.


Nuggets coach George Karl said the NBA's leading scorer still isn't comfortable making sharp moves, and Denver was expecting a fast-paced game against the Spurs.

Karl expects Anthony to try to play Monday against Sacramento.

Anthony is averaging 29.7 points and injured his ankle a week ago against New Orleans. The Nuggets are 2-1 without him so far.
