The Nuggets fear Dozier suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during Tuesday's 119-110 loss to the Trail Blazers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Dozier's injury certainly looked to be severe when he fell to the court on a collision at the rim during the first quarter of the contest and required assistance off the court from his teammates. According to Wojnarowski, initial imaging conducted on Dozier's knee suggested a long-term absence is likely, but the 25-year-old will presumably undergo additional tests before a diagnosis is confirmed. Regardless, Dozier looks destined to miss time, adding to the Nuggets' growing list of banged-up players. Reigning MVP Nikola Jokic is day-to-day with a sprained wrist and should return soon, but Jamal Murray (knee) is likely out through the All-Star break, while Michael Porter (back) could require season-ending surgery.
