The Houston Rockets and Carmelo Anthony are discussing his role with the team and how the franchise and the 10-time All-Star forward still might be able to proceed together for the rest of the season, league sources told ESPN.

For the second straight night, Anthony was not with the team Sunday because of an illness, according to the Rockets. He signed a one-year deal with the Rockets in the summer after he was traded from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Atlanta Hawks.

Morey went on to say that he wanted to speak to reporters in large part to defend Anthony. "I'm trying to win a game". "I understand it he's obviously a Hall of Famer".

"We're struggling as a team. We're looking at all aspects right now".

"Our problem is we can't shoot the basketball", he said.

If he clears waivers, Anthony would be free to sign with any team that wants him, and you'd figure the National Basketball Association isn't out of such teams just yet.

General manager Daryl Morey called speculation of Anthony's departure is "unfair" and added that Anthony has done everything asked of him of the coaching staff. Morey also noted that more people besides Anthony deserve blame for Houston's start to the season.

"I don't know what's being said or whatnot, but Melo's been great, working hard every day", Paul said.

It's my job, it's coach's job to figure this thing out.
