MEMPHIS, Tenn. - New York forward Carmelo Anthony left the Knicks' game against Memphis on Thursday night after spraining his right ankle early in the second half.

Anthony, the Knicks' leading scorer at 26.6 points a game, injured the ankle on New York's end of the floor and immediately limped to the bench. He was taken to the locker room moments later.

He had 14 points and three rebounds when he left the game.
