NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced that New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony will replace injured Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday in New Orleans.
This marks the 10th All-Star selection for Anthony, who went into Wednesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder averaging 23.2 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists. This is the eighth consecutive year that Anthony will play in the All-Star Game.
Love had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday and is expected to miss six weeks.
