The trainers for the Denver Nuggets have got to be working overtime these days. The team already has Danilo Gallinari, Nene and Rudy Fernandez out with injuries. And now the team must add point guard Ty Lawson to the list. This is a big part of why the team has lost 10 of its last 14 games.

During the second quarter of the Nuggets' 103-101 overtime win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Lawson was sidelined with a left ankle sprain. He's now listed as day-to-day.

Reinforcements are coming for the Nuggets, though. The paper notes that Wilson Chandler is back from China and was at the game Monday night. A "contract is being worked out" so that Chandler can play for the Nuggets before the season is out," the Post reports. Chandler seemed to think that could happen in the next week, according to the paper.

The 24-year-old Lawson, who is now considered day-to-day, is averaging 15.4 points and 6.1 assists per game.
