CLEVELAND (AP) - Knicks All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony injured his right knee against the Cavaliers and will not return.

With New York trailing by 22 and playing poorly, Anthony stumbled near midcourt after catching a pass and fell awkwardly to the floor. He got up, and appearing more embarrassed than hurt, immediately headed to the locker room with a slight limp.

Just before halftime, the Knicks announced that Anthony would not be back but offered no other details about his injury.

Anthony, who entered the game tied with Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant for the NBA’s top scoring average (28.6 points), had six points on just 1 of 5 shooting and three turnovers before going out.

Anthony scored 32 points Sunday, when the Knicks blew a 16-point lead and lost to Miami.
