Denver coach George Karl said before the Nuggets' 114-106 Christmas Day loss at Oklahoma City that he had no update on Anthony's status. Karl says he doesn't expect Anthony to return for a home game Sunday against Philadelphia.
The team said Wednesday night that Anthony's sister, Michelle Anthony, died of a pre-existing medical condition Tuesday in Baltimore. She had four children.
Anthony missed the Nuggets' game Wednesday night in San Antonio.
