Carmelo Anthony Injured On Missed Three-Pointer

Carmelo Anthony left the gold medal game against Spain with three minutes remaining when he injured his ankle after landing on Rudy Fernandez’s foot on a missed three-pointer. ’Melo was obviously limping on the next two possessions, but in FIBA play, coaches can only call timeouts during dead balls.

’Melo had eight points on 3-9 shooting. Team USA led 97-91 when Anthony exited.
