Injured knee forces Melo to sit out as Knicks face Pistons

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- New York All-Star Carmelo Anthony is sitting out Wednesday night's game at Detroit after injuring his right knee earlier in the week.

The Pistons, meanwhile, are without coach Lawrence Frank, who is missing the game because of a personal matter.

Anthony stumbled near midcourt Monday night against Cleveland 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. He did not return.

The Knicks are playing the first of back-to-back games. They host Oklahoma City on Thursday.

Detroit's Greg Monroe is also out because of a sore left ankle. Assistant coach Brian Hill is taking over for Frank.
