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.
