Raptors Vs. Nuggets: Arron Afflalo, Rudy Fernandez Will Try To Play, According To Report

The Denver Nuggets might not be short players on Friday night against the Toronto Raptors, which seemed to be the case on Thursday. Guards Arron Afflalo and Rudy Fernandez will attempt to play through their injures, according to head coach George Karl.

If Afflalo does play, he would likely start in the back court with Andre Miller. But we'll also need to wait on what happens with Ty Lawson. He didn't participate in shootaround and is still doubtful for the game.

Afflalo has missed the last two games due to a groin injury while Fernandez' Achilles has kept him out for four of the last five games.
