Nuggets' Arron Afflalo, Rudy Fernandez Are Out Vs. Sacramento

The Denver Nuggets will be shorthanded again when they play the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night. Both Arron Afflalo and Rudy Fernandez did not practice on Tuesday and will be out for the game, reports Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post.

Afflalo missed Saturday's double overtime victory over the New York Knicks due to a groin injury while Fernandez has missed three of the last four games with an Achilles injury that won't go away. This means we can expect Wednesday's starting lineup to be Timofey Mozgov, Nene, Danilo Gallinari, Andre Miller and Ty Lawson. On Saturday, coach George Karl played just seven men throughout the entire game. Al Harrington continued his superb play as Denver's sixth man while Corey Brewer put in 25 minutes as well.

With the extra time off to recover, might we see seven men play again?
