Carmelo Anthony leaves game with injured right knee

New York, hold your breath.

After tripping awkwardly Monday against the Cavaliers, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony exited the game and will not return.

He has been diagnosed with a right knee injury. More tests will likely follow.

The injury came with 6:40 left in the second quarter, when Anthony tripped near halfcourt. No contact was involved.

Anthony missed a couple of games earlier in the season because of a hyperextended left knee.

Anthony, 28, is averaging 28.6 points and 6.3 rebounds.
