Historically an enthusiast of the All-Star festivities, Anthony said he’d prefer to utilize the week off rather than take the injury reserve spot that may have opened up because of a knee injury to Kevin Love. Anthony had lobbied hard for a spot this season, and two years ago even delayed knee surgery so he could play in the game.
I got plans,” Anthony said of taking the spot from Love, who is experiencing knee soreness and will sit Tuesday’s game for the Cavs. “I would love to take this break and just utilize this break and my body and my mind and just get away from everything. I could utilize this break. If they call me I’d consider it. But I would love to utilize this break.”
