NEW YORK (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony is missing his second straight game with a sore and stiff right knee as the New York Knicks face the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Coach Mike Woodson says the All-Star forward is day to day and doesn't believe the injury is serious.

Anthony was hurt Monday in Cleveland, falling to the court with no contact as he tried to catch a pass. He said the knee had been bothering him and he'd recently had an exam that showed no damage.

Kurt Thomas is starting again Thursday in Anthony's place.
