Carmelo Anthony intends to play in All-Star game, according to report

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony will play in Sunday's NBA All-Star game despite a bruised arm, the New York Daily News' Frank Isola reported on Thursday.

Isola cited an NBA source who said that the league has been informed Anthony would play.

Anthony was hurt early on during the Knicks' 92-88 loss to Toronto on Wednesday. He took a step in front of a driving DeMar DeRozan and got elbowed in his arm. Anthony said it created a contusion and left him battling a "dead arm" throughout the game.

Anthony had said Wednesday night that he wouldn't "force it" to play in the All-Star game. He entered Wednesday's game averaging 29 points per game, tied with Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant for the league high.
