NBA top rebounder Camby out with broken pinkie

DENVER -- Denver center Marcus Camby will be out
indefinitely after breaking his right pinkie finger, an injury that
will require surgery.

Camby will need surgery on the finger, after which a timeline
for his return will be set.

He averages 16.3 points, 12.9 rebounds and is second in the
league with 3.12 blocks a game. His injury adds to a long list for
Denver, which has struggled to a 14-15 record.

Already, the Nuggets have lost power forward Nene for the season
with a knee injury. Kenyon Martin has missed 10 games with a bad
knee. Earl Boykins recently missed six games with a hamstring
injury and Greg Buckner missed three with a strained groin.

Camby played only six minutes Tuesday night in a 108-106 loss to
Philadelphia. The Nuggets play Seattle on Thursday.
