New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony hyper-extended his left knee during practice Monday, the New York Daily News reports.

The All-Star swingman reportedly suffered the injury when he collided with rookie Ian Shumpert during a full court scrimmage. Knicks head coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters on the scene that the injury was not serious.

Anthony later tweeted:
