Nuggets visit Celtics in clash of banged-up clubs

BOSTON -- Two teams with serious injury questions meet when the Denver Nuggets close a six-game road trip against the Celtics at TD Garden on Wednesday night.

The Nuggets, who hammered the Pistons in Detroit on Tuesday night in the front end of a back-to-back, have been playing without Paul Millsap (wrist surgery) and Nikola Jokic (ankle) and there seems to be some hope Jokic can return for the trip finale.

"He's getting closer. He's definitely moving in the right direction," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said before Tuesday night's game. "The ankle is still very, very sore, but he's moving better. He's managing the pain, and whether he's available tomorrow night, we'll wait and see."
