Gallinari suffers left ankle injury

Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari exited Monday's game against the Houston Rockets after suffering a chip fracture in his left ankle.

The injury came with 9:38 left in the third. From the left wing, Gallinari drove into the paint and appeared to go for a pull-up jumper, but he rolled his left ankle badly while being fouled by Chandler Parsons on the play. Gallinari stayed in the contest and made both foul shots before exiting.

An x-ray revealed the injury and Gallinari will have a CT scan done on his ankle Tuesday.
