Denver's Gallinari, Mozgov sidelined for Sixers game

The Denver Nuggets will be without two frontcourt performers for tonight’s opener at the Wells Fargo Center against the 76ers.

Forward Danilo Gallinari is out with a left ankle sprain and center Timofey Mozgov is sidelined with a left knee strain. Both are listed as day to day.

Gallinari went through the shootarond today but is still not able to cut comfortably, according to the team.

Mozgov injured his knee in Tuesday’s practice.

Gallinari’s outside shooting will be missed. He averaged 14.6 points last season but also missed 23 games due to injury.
