Anthony will no longer play for the Rockets, but the team has no immediate plans to place him on waivers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Rather than letting Anthony go outright, the organization will likely look to see if a trade market exists for the 10-time All-Star. In any event, Anthony's already dwindling fantasy value has taken another hit. It's possible Anthony ends up in a better situation on a different team, but there's no telling when or where that could be.
Rockets players and coaches believe that Anthony (illness) has played his last game for the team, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. Just moments after it was reported that Anthony wasn't going to make the trip to Denver for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, it appears as though that will be because Anthony's time with the team has come to an end. While nothing official has been announced, it seems reasonable to believe the report given that there have been plenty of rumors circulating recently regarding Anthony's role with the team. Expect Houston to release something more official at some point in the next couple of days.
Anthony (illness) is not traveling with the team for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. It's curious that Anthony has already been ruled out for Tuesday's trip to Denver, and it's quite possible that it could be for reasons beyond the illness that has cost him to miss the last two games given that there is some uncertainty regarding his role with the team. Anthony's next opportunity to play will be when the team returns home for Thursday's outing against the Warriors.
Anthony (illness) will not play in Sunday's game against the Pacers, Alykhan Bijani of the Athletic reports. Anthony missed his first game Saturday with an illness. He's struggled to find a role with the Rockets this season, struggling on both sides of the floor. He recently sat down with the organization to discuss what his role going forward would be. Anthony's next opportunity to play will be Tuesday against the Nuggets, and he should be considered questionable for that game at this time.
Anthony (illness) recently met with the Rockets to discuss his role on the team moving forward and how the two sides will proceed together for the remainder of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Anthony was sidelined for the first time all season in Saturday's 96-89 loss to the Spurs due to the illness, leaving his status for the second half of the back-to-back Sunday against the Pacers somewhat uncertain. More so than the ailment, Anthony's poor shooting on high volume through the Rockets' first 10 games remains the greater concern for his future outlook. Anthony has hit just 40.5 percent of his 12.1 field-goal attempts per game and is hitting three-point shots at a 32.8 percent clip. Those percentages are roughly in line with those he submitted for Oklahoma City last season, but Houston may have hoped that their offensive system might have yielded greater efficiency from the 34-year-old. Anthony's erratic shooting and poor defense are traits that may prompt coach Mike D'Antoni to exclude the forward from his rotation in future contests, something that could eventually motivate the veteran to seek a buyout.
