Nuggets without Gallinari, Igoudala and Chandler

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.
