Carmelo Anthony ruled out for tonight's game vs. Thunder

As expected, the New York Knicks will be without small forward Carmelo Anthony tonight when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder, per Frank Isola of the NY Daily News.

Anthony, who has a sprained right ankle, ranks fourth in the NBA in scoring (25.5 points per game) and is averaging 6.2 rebounds and a team-high 4.3 assists per game as well.

Bill Walker will start for Anthony tonight and has averaged 5.5 points in 20:11 minutes per game this season.

There is a good chance that Melo will only miss tonight's game and return for Monday's matchup against the Orlando Magic.
