Nene Hilario Injury: Nuggets Forward Will Sit Out Monday Night's Game

On Monday evening, the Denver Nuggets announced that forward Nene Hilario will not play in the team's Monday night game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Nene has a bruised foot, and with the Nuggets playing their third game in as many days, the team has decided it best to err on the side of caution. The injury does not appear to be severe:

Nuggets big man [Kosta Koufos] will start for Nuggets tonight vs Bucks. Nene out with bruised foot. Karl says Nene is day-to-day.

Karl offered the starting spot to Al Harrington, but the two apparently agreed that the bench rotation is running too smoothly to change at the moment.

Koufos has appeared in two games and logged a total of 11 minutes for the Nuggets this season. The fourth-year big man has averaged 3.2 points and 2.3 rebounds per game over the course of his NBA career.
