Carmelo Anthony will not face a suspension for his dustup with Philadelphia big man Spencer Hawes on Sunday night, according to a league source.
In the third quarter of the Knicks-76ers game, Anthony hit Hawes in the back of the head as the two were fighting for position on a rebound. Hawes angrily approached Anthony but was pushed away by Tyson Chandler.
Both Hawes and Chandler received double technicals and Anthony, in addition, was called for a flagrant foul. He said after the game that Hawes had elbowed him prior to the incident.
The league, according to a source, reviewed the matter but has decided against suspending Anthony, who has been in the middle of several skirmishes — both with officials and opponents — this season.
