Facundo Campazzo does not have any serious injury to his right knee, but he also did not play the game that Denver lost 119-114 to Sacramento King this Saturday, because the discomfort in the joint continues to hurt. The Argentine base tested in the warm-up to see if he could be from the game, but finally the team reported that the player was not available for coach Michael Malone.
After the injury suffered on Thursday against the Los Angeles Lakers, Campazzo underwent an MRI that showed that there is no serious injury, so the player tried to test in the warm-up. However, he felt some discomfort, so he preferred to take care of himself to finish recovering. “Although he tried to see if he could in the warm-up, Facu felt pain again and was finally ruled out for the game against Sacramento,” his communication team reported on social networks.
The Nuggets’ next match will be Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks, where the Argentine is expected to be. “He will be evaluated again on Monday. He is in good spirits and focused on recovering as soon as possible,” completed his press people. Campazzo’s presence in Malone’s rotation was very important, as two other teammates from Denver’s outside game such as Gary Harris and PJ Dozier suffer muscle discomfort and will miss several games, while one of the team’s stars, Canadian Jamal Murray also could not be against the Kings with a left knee injury.
Faced with this situation, the entire responsibility of the team fell on the Serbian Nikola Jokic, who could not avoid defeat despite scoring 50 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds.
