Anthony excused from Nuggets practice

DENVER (AP) - Carmelo Anthony was excused from the Denver Nuggets' practice Monday night.

Instead of taping up his ankles, the All-Star forward was in Burbank, Calif., taping a segment on "Conan."

Anthony, the subject of intense speculation as Thursday's trade deadline approaches, stayed behind in Los Angeles following the NBA All-Star game while his teammates gathered at the Pepsi Center.

Team spokesman Tim Gelt tells The Associated Press that Anthony's absence was excused. Late Monday afternoon, Anthony tweeted: "Headed to Burbank to film THE CONAN SHOW."

Anthony has been the subject of trade talks ever since he declined to sign a three-year, $65 million extension with the Nuggets last summer. His biggest pursuers are the New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets.
