Knicks' Anthony suspended for one game

New York Knicks All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony has been suspended one game by the National Basketball Association for approaching an opposing player on multiple occasions after a recent game, the league said on Wednesday.

Anthony confronted Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett in the arena tunnel near the players' locker rooms and again in the parking garage following New York's 102-96 home loss on Monday.

The incidents occurred after a game in which Anthony and Garnett jawed at each other, including one exchange during the fourth quarter that lead to technical fouls for both players.

"There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game," Stu Jackson, the NBA's executive vice president of basketball operations, said in a statement.

"Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday's game and therefore a suspension was warranted."

Anthony, second in the league in scoring behind Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers with a 29.0 average, will serve his suspension on Jan. 10 when the Atlantic division-leading Knicks play at the Indiana Pacers.



Wolves' Love out 8-10 weeks



(Reuters) - The Minnesota Timberwolves' playoff hopes were dealt a blow as leading scorer Kevin Love will miss up to 10 weeks because of surgery to repair his fractured right hand, the National Basketball Association team said on Wednesday.

Love reinjured his hand during the team's Jan. 3 game at Denver. The 24-year-old forward had already missed the first three weeks of the 2012-13 season with a broken right hand.

Details of the surgery, which will sideline Love for eight to 10 weeks, are expected to be announced on Thursday, the team said in a statement.

The loss of Love is a blow for the Timberwolves (16-15), who currently stand ninth in the Western Conference, one place out of a playoff berth.

The two-time All-Star, a member of the gold-medal winning U.S. team at last year's London Olympics, leads the Timberwolves in scoring with an average of 18.3 points per game and 14 rebounds.
