Anthony will not travel with the team for
Tuesday's game against the Denver Nuggets, marking his third
straight missed game with the Rockets. The organization says he
out with an illness.
General manager Daryl Morey called speculation about Anthony's
future as "unfair," but ESPN notes the Rockets could place
Anthony on waivers as soon as Monday.
According to ESPN, several GMs and their respective coaches are
discussing whether Anthony could be helpful to their
organizations. However, Wojnarowski notes it's a tough time of
year for teams to make roster moves, and "patience" could be
Anthony's best short-term course of action.
Anthony has appeared in 10 games this season with two starts,
averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds in 29.4 minutes.
Anthony, 34, signed a one-year, $2.4 million veteran's minimum
contract with the Rockets after he agreed to a buyout with the
Atlanta Hawks before the start of the season. Houston would be
on the hook for that contract if it decides to waive him.
Anthony's next opportunity to play will be Thursday when the
Rockets return home to face the Warriors.
