Nuggets without Gallinari, Igoudala and Chandler


Posted Feb 12, 2013 7:33 PM

TORONTO (AP) -- The Denver Nuggets had to juggle their starting lineup for Tuesday's game at Toronto after losing two of their top three scorers to injury.

Forward Danilo Gallinari, who leads Denver with 17.2 points per game, was ruled out with a sinus infection. Guard Andre Iguodala, third on the team at 13.4 points per game, had a strained neck.

Corey Brewer started in place of Gallinari, while rookie Evan Fournier took over for Iguodala.

The Nuggets were also without forward Wilson Chandler, sidelined by a sore groin.

Gallinari, Iguodala and Chandler all played in Sunday's triple overtime loss at Boston. That defeat snapped Denver's nine-game winning streak, its longest in nearly eight years.

All three could return Wednesday at Brooklyn, Denver's last game before the All-Star break. The Nuggets don't play again until hosting Boston on Feb. 19.
