The <em>Denver Post</em> reports on the injury sustained by Danilo Gallinari Monday against the Dallas Mavericks:
Uh oh. Gallinari has a left thumb fracture, won't return— Benjamin Hochman (@nuggetsnews) March 20, 2012
The Nuggets had just gotten Gallo back from injury after the All-Star break and he was starting to get his legs under him. It's not known at this point if Gallo will miss any time or just wear a brace, but a fracture is a fracture and that's never good.
Andre Miller also suffered a shoulder contusion which will likely have an MRI Tuesday. The Nuggets were flush with all this depth after signing Wilson Chandler and all of a sudden have holes at reserve point guard and at small forward.
