New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony says he has a contusion on his right bicep muscle and if it continues to hurt, he may not play in the All-Star Game.

Anthony made the comments to a pool of media reporters following the Knicks' 92-88 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night. Anthony finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds but only shot 5 for 24.

The Knicks (32-18) have lost their final two games leading into the All-Star break and are 3 1/2 games behind the Miami Heat for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

“It was kind of like a dead arm out there," Anthony said after the game.

Anthony, who is averaging 29 points and 6.4 rebounds a game this season, was voted as a starter in the All-Star Game, which will take place Sunday at the Toyota Center in Houston.
