Carmelo OK after no swelling or pain in knee

8/9/2006 - NBA Olympics

DENVER -- Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony had no
swelling or pain Wednesday and was walking normally, one day after
hyperextending his knee while playing for the U.S. national team in
China.

Anthony is considered day-to-day, the Nuggets said.

The injury came in the U.S. team's 90-86 victory over Brazil in
Guangzhou, China. Anthony, who scored 15 points in the first half,
slipped while chasing a ball to the sideline with 2:21 left in the
second quarter.
