Nuggets Vs. Heat Injury Report: Karl Says Lawson, Gallinari and Nene Will Play Against Miami

The Denver Nuggets (7-4) host the Miami Heat (8-3) at the Pepsi Center on Friday night, and Nuggets head coach George Karl has confirmed that Ty Lawson, Danilo Gallinari and Nene will be active for the game and will play. Lawson missed Thursday's win over the New Jersey Nets with a strained right foot, while Gallinari and Nene have been battling through a sprained right ankle and a strained left heel, respectively.

The Nuggets will need everyone on the roster at their disposal if they hope to defeat LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat, who recently lost two difficult overtime games on their west coast trip and will no doubt be looking to reassert their dominance on Friday.
