DENVER (AP) - Nuggets coach George Karl is uncertain whether Carmelo Anthony will play Tuesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers following the funeral for his sister.
The All-Star forward wasn't at the morning practice.
Anthony has missed three games after Michelle Anthony died last week of a pre-existing medical condition in Baltimore. Her funeral was Monday.
Karl said he spoke Monday night with general manager Masai Ujiri, who thought Anthony would fly home later Tuesday.
The Nuggets are 0-3 in Anthony's absence. He's averaging 24 points and 8.3 rebounds.
Forward Al Harrington will sit out the next two games with a dislocated right thumb.
