It looks like Carmelo Anthony won't be facing his former team in Houston on Monday.

According to the latest report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Anthony will not be available to play until the Trail Blazers take on the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.

The Trail Blazers have yet to officially announce the signing of Anthony after Wojnarowski reported late Thursday night Portland was set to sign the 35-year-old.

Anthony last played for the Houston Rockets and averaged 13.4 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 0.5 apg in 10 games in '18-'19.

Portland embarks on its six-game road trip starting with San Antonio on Saturday, followed by Houston, New Orleans, Milwaukee, Cleveland, and wrapping up next Tuesday in Chicago.
