The Nuggets have already lost Danilo Gallinari for the playoffs with a knee injury. It appeared as though they could lose rebounding machine Kenneth Faried when his ankle rolled at a horrible angle while driving to the basket today. According to the Nuggets twitter feed, though, the X-rays are negative and he is day-to-day. With two more games remaining and the Nuggets trying to get the #3 seed, the “day-to-day” part will probably be through the end of the regular season with how sore he is likely to be after that, and the training staff will be working to get him back for the playoffs. While the specific schedules have not been announced, that gives Faried six days before the playoffs open on April 20th.
