OKLAHOMA CITY (CBS/AP) — The Denver Nuggets will likely be without star Carmelo Anthony on Sunday night when they host the Philadelphia 76ers.

Anthony missed his second straight game Saturday night after leaving the team to be with his family following the death of his sister.

Denver coach George Karl said before the Nuggets’ Christmas Day game at Oklahoma City that he had no update on Anthony’s status. Karl says he doesn’t expect Anthony to return for the game against the Sixers.

The team said Wednesday night that Anthony’s sister, Michelle Anthony, died of a pre-existing medical condition Tuesday in Baltimore. She had four children.

Anthony missed the Nuggets’ game Wednesday night in San Antonio.
