NEW YORK -- Because of lingering pain from a left ankle injury, Knicks star Carmelo Anthony did not play against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Christmas Day.

Anthony suffered a sprained left ankle on Monday against Orlando and was listed as questionable coming into the game. He met with team trainers and the medical staff before the game and was ruled out about 45 minutes before tipoff.

Felton status uncertain:
As expected, Raymond Felton sat out of Wednesday's game with a groin injury. Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Felton will be evaluated by team docs on Thursday to determine a timetable for his return.

Woodson is hopeful that Felton can return in 1-2 weeks, but that seems optimistic.


Metta may play:
Metta World Peace also missed his second straight game with left knee soreness. He is scheduled to undergo a blood therapy procedure on Jan. 6. It is unclear if he will play before then.
