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.
