Danilo Gallinari (ankle), Kenneth Faried (illness), Gary Harris (groin) and Nikola Jokic (illness) will play in Thursday’s game against the Pacers in London, while Wilson Chandler (illness) and Darrell Arthur (leg) are questionable to go.
The biggest item here is Harris being able to play as that lowers a pretty big red flag after he lost the first month of his season. Gallinari has a history of ankle injuries so we’re similarly happy to see him ready to go, and as for the absences if Chandler can’t play you’ll see better offensive flow and Arthur’s impact to minutes and rotation are minimal. Look for Will Barton to get solid run and players like Jameer Nelson and Jamal Murray to step into the void. It’s a one-off game in London with everybody sick — anything can happen today.
Update: Chandler is in and Arthur is out.
Darrell Arthur is OUT vs Pacers. Jokic, Faried, Harris, Gallinari, Chandler all available to play.
