Nuggets Injury Update: Corey Brewer Needed Stitches Below Left Eye, Will Play In Game 6

The Denver Nuggets will need all hands on deck tonight if they're going to knock off the Los Angeles Lakers and force Game 7 in their opening round series in the 2012 NBA Playoffs. Despite sustaining a cut in Game 5 that required three stitches below his left left eye, swing man Corey Brewer will play for the Nuggets on Thursday night.

Brewer played only 15 minutes in Game 5, finishing with just two points on 1-of-5 shooting from the floor. Denver's bench was still a huge part of the team's success in Game 5, outscoring the bench of the Lakers' 50-19.
