Danilo Gallinari Injury: Nuggets Forward Has Chip Fracture In Left Foot

The Denver Nuggets continue to receive more bad news on the injury front for the team. Danilo Gallinari rolled his ankle and had to leave the court to have it examined. X-rays later revealed that he has a chip fracture in his left ankle, keeping him out for the rest of the game. He will have a CT scan on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury.

The Nuggets are now down to one regular starter: point guard Ty Lawson. Arron Afflalo, Timofey Mozgov and Nene were declared out earlier in the day with a variety of injuries. Corey Brewer also left the team temporarily to be with his family while they grieve for the loss of his father.
