The Denver Nuggets have suspended Carmelo Anthony for one game for an "in-game transgression" Sunday against Indiana.

Nuggets vice president of player personnel Rex Chapman did not
elaborate on what Anthony did to earn the punishment.

Denver's game at Detroit on Tuesday night and will return Thursday

Anthony has been bothered by a balky knee and has shot poorly
his last two games, going just 12-of-41 from the field.
