NEW YORK (AP) - Carmelo Anthony sat out the New York Knicks‘ game against the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night because of a strained right groin.

Anthony missed his sixth straight game. The Knicks had said he was expected to be sidelined a week or two after he was hurt during a Feb. 6 victory over Utah.

Anthony worked out before the game but coach Mike D’Antoni said the All-Star forward felt pain Thursday and the decision had been made to give him extra time.

The Knicks‘ next game is at home Sunday against Dallas.

Anthony leads the Knicks with 22.3 points per game but has missed nine games with injuries.
