Gordon, Telfair sit vs. Nuggets

DENVER -- The Clippers were without guards Eric Gordon and Sebastian Telfair in Los Angeles' 105-85 loss to the Denver Nuggets because of injuries.

Gordon and Telfair were both hurt during Wednesday's 104-97 victory over the Chicago Bulls at Staples Center and were not available to play Thursday night as the Clippers opened a season-high eight-game road trip against Denver.

Gordon sprained his left big toe and Telfair sustained a strained groin against the Bulls.

During a pre-game news conference, Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said Telfair did not accompany the team to Denver and would be seeing a specialist on Friday for further evaluation.

Dunleavy said Gordon was "day to day," and the coach is hopeful he will play at Washington on Sunday.
