Carmelo likely to miss Sixers game


While the Denver Nuggets were losing Christmas night in Oklahoma City, the Sixers were in Denver practicing for tonight's game.

The Sixers had reconvened after scattering for Christmas following a loss to Boston on Thursday night.

The Nuggets are likely to be without star forward Carmelo Anthony tonight for the third consecutive game. Anthony has been in his hometown of Baltimore following the death of his sister, Michelle.

Michelle, 36, had been suffering from a pre-existing medical condition. She had four children.

"I think he'll be back with the team, we're hoping, for the games after (Philadelphia)," George Karl told the Denver Post, although he said he did not know for sure if Anthony was going to miss tonight's game.
