Portland's Carmelo Anthony (ankle) ruled out on Saturday

Portland Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will not play in Saturday's contest against the San Antonio Spurs.

What It Means:

Anthony will miss the later half of Portland's back-to-back with an ankle sprain. Expect Norman Powell to play an increased offensive role in a slow tempo matchup against a San Antonio unit playing with a 97.8 pace.

Powell's current projection includes 16.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists.
