Denver Nuggets All-Star Carmelo Anthony will miss at least three weeks with a broken bone in his shooting hand, but he won't need surgery.
Anthony (Towson Catholic) was fitted with a red removable splint yesterday after breaking a bone in his right hand in a victory over the Indiana Pacers the night before.
He has been told by doctors he'll be out three to four weeks.
"Hopefully the healing process will be a lot quicker," Anthony said after returning to the Pepsi Center after his visit with a hand specialist.
Anthony was injured 9:44 into the third quarter when Pacers center Jeff Foster swatted at the ball, catching part of Anthony's hand.
