The Denver Nuggets confirmed that guard PJ Dozier has suffered a torn ACL. He suffered the injury on Tuesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers.

He was injured when he landed awkwardly on a play when he tried to cut across the lane in the first quarter of the game. He was injured on a play with Cody Zeller guarding him.

The Nuggets have been hit hard by injuries. The team is already without guard Jamal Murray, who suffered a torn ACL in the spring.

MVP Nikola Jokić is battling a sprained right wrist that has cost him the last three games. Rookie Bones Hyland and Michael Porter Jr. have also deal with injuries recently.

The 25-year-old — who has spent the last three seasons with the Nuggets — appeared in 18 games, as a reserve this season. He averaged 5.4 points per game in 18.9 minutes.

He played four minutes against the Trail Blazers before suffering the injury. He scored two points.

Dozier has scored more than 10 points just three times this season. He scored 12 points twice and 10 points in the season-opener against the Phoenix Suns.

He was the team’s backup shooting guard. Now, Austin Rivers and Markus Howard will pick up the minutes behind starter Will Barton.
