Report: Aaron Gordon of Nuggets Sidelined After Dog Attack, Receives Multiple Stitches

Denver Nuggets player Aaron Gordon, in his fourth year with the team, will be sidelined due to hand and face lacerations resulting from a dog bite on Christmas Day, requiring 21 stitches, as reported by ESPN.

The seasoned NBA forward’s return is uncertain, and the team has stated that he is in good condition. Updates on Gordon’s recovery will be communicated in due course despite his indefinite absence. In his stead, Zeke Nnaji, another Nuggets forward, is anticipated to assume a more significant role.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone revealed that he has spoken with Gordon, emphasizing the importance of focusing on physical and mental recovery. Malone expressed the team’s unwavering support for Gordon, urging teammates to contact him during this challenging time.

Despite Gordon’s absence, the Nuggets, the reigning champions, continue to perform well and hold the second spot in the Western Conference standings. Malone reiterated the team’s eagerness to have Gordon back on the court, emphasizing their commitment to supporting his return when he is fully prepared to contribute at his best.

Gordon had previously missed five games this season due to a heel injury.
