Denver Nuggets' Carmelo Anthony has suffered a fracture to a finger on his shooting hand and is expected to be sidelined for three-to-four weeks, the team said on Tuesday.
The all-star forward injured the middle finger of his right hand in the second half of the 135-115 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Monday.
The injury will not require surgery.
Anthony is averaging 21.1 points and 7.3 rebounds for the Nuggets, who top the Northwest Division with a 24-12 record.
