Nuggets Vs. Raptors: Ty Lawson, Arron Afflalo And Rudy Fernandez Injured For Denver

According to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post, the Denver Nuggets (13-5) may be without the services of a trio of major contributors when they face the Toronto Raptors (6-13) on Friday. Hochman reports G Ty Lawson, G Arron Afflalo and G Rudy Fernandez are all struggling with injuries and have a chance to miss all three Friday night.

Lawson, recently hit with a sprained left ankle, is "doubtful" to play, while Fernandez and Afflalo -- both players who missed Tuesday's game -- are "doubtful" and a "gametime decision" respectively.

The 24-year-old Lawson is second on the team with 582 minutes, 267 points and 110 assists. Afflalo, in his fifth NBA season, has shot .432 in the 2011-2012 season -- his worst since becoming a starter in 2009.
