Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari suffered an ankle injury in the first half against the Houston Rockets. An X-ray taken at the arena confirmed a chip fracture of his left ankle. A CT-scan is scheduled for Tuesday in Denver.
Losing Gallinari for any period of time would be devastating for a Nuggets team, despite the Nuggets’ depth. They’re already dealing with injuries to Nene, Arron Afflalo, and Timofey Mozgov, but Gallo has been the Nuggets’ best overall player, performin at a near-All-Star level. Between injuries and a brutal schedule period, the Nuggets have lost five of their past six games.
