MIAMI (AP) — Carmelo Anthony will not play Friday night when the New York Knicks visit the Miami Heat, who are still waiting to see if Dwyane Wade’s sprained right ankle will allow him to return to the lineup.

Anthony is being shut down for a few days because of wrist, thumb and ankle injuries. Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni also says point guard Baron Davis is still not ready for his season-debut. Davis has been battling back problems.

Wade has missed Miami’s last six games with the ankle problem, and has sat out nine overall this season. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade has been able to do a number of on-court workouts in recent days, including one Friday morning.
