Carmelo Anthony did not take part in the Nuggets morning shootaround before taking on the Lakers Friday in Denver, with coach George Karl citing personal reasons.

When pressed if Anthony would miss the game against the Lakers — players often miss practices or games right before they are traded — Karl told the Associated Press “I don’t think there’s any doubt (he will play).”

This may well be nothing. Remember Chauncey Billups (also part of recent trade rumors) missed a shoot around because of a headache.

But anything like this around the Nuggets right now raises eyebrows, if not big red flags.
