Carmelo Anthony (illness) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Denver Nuggets.
Anthony is dealing with some kind of non-covid illness that knocked him out of Friday's game, and it's unclear when he will be available to make his return. For now, expect him to be considered day-to-day, and look for Wenyen Gabriel to be a key fantasy beneficiary if the veteran continues to miss time.

Carmelo Anthony totaled five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3PT), five rebounds, and one assist in the Lakers’ 131-120 win over the Cavaliers on Monday.
Anthony scored five points in the Lakers’ win over the Cavaliers, ending his streak of double-digit scoring performances at four. His ability to generate offensive value through his scoring has been a much-needed contribution to the Lakers fight to remain in the post season race. From a fantasy perspective his low floor and low ceiling could make him an undesirable fantasy asset for your lineups, however, his consistent role and the lack of other offensive options make him an ideal candidate for a single-game contest.
Lakers F Carmelo Anthony is available Saturday night against Washington according to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk.
Despite missing Friday's game against the Raptors with a non-COVID illness, the 37-year old appears to be over it. Anthony is averaging 13.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in 61 games this season. His average of 2.3 three pointers this season is on pace for the highest of his career so he still remains a great fantasy producer from deep.
Carmelo Anthony had a solid outing with 16 points (6-15 FG, 1-7 3PT, 3-5 FT), three boards, and an assist off the bench for the Lakers.
Melo had a decent game off the bench when it comes to scoring. However, he did not do much else and shot the ball inefficiently. It was all-around just another rough game for the Lakers by all acounts.
