After reports came out last night that the team feared PJ Dozier had torn his ACL after a nasty fall; the Nuggets have officially announced that PJ Dozier has a torn ACL and will be out indefinitely. The injury happened last night during the Nuggets’ loss to the Phoenix Suns.
Injury update: PJ Dozier has been diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee. He will be out indefinitely. #MileHighBasketball— Denver Nuggets (@nuggets) November 24, 2021
In an injury riddled season this is yet another blow to the Nuggets and their title hopes. PJ Dozier had been a key role player for them this season and the season before. He is currently in a contract year and most likely would have earned himself a well paying contract, but this injury will sideline him for the rest of the season.
It’s just an awful injury that I hate to see. PJ is very important to this team, yeah, but he’s also a person and no one deserves to tear their ACL. All of our thoughts are with PJ and all of us at Denver Stiffs hope him a speedy and full recovery.
