Nuggets forwards Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler worked off to the side Monday as their team prepared to face the Rockets for the second time in three nights without them.

Denver could certainly use two of its leading scorers as it heads down the stretch of a playoff chase that is tightening by the day, and coach Michael Malone said he is hopeful the two veterans will be back in the lineup when the Nuggets host defending champion Cleveland on Wednesday.

Gallinari is nursing a bone bruise on his left knee and missed his third consecutive game. Chandler missed his fourth consecutive game with a right groin contusion.

Hopeful is the word Id use, Malone said before the game. Well have to wait and see how their continued rehabs go and how theyre feeling. For both of those guys it comes down to whether theyre comfortable enough and confident enough to go out there and play at a high level.

A potential return date for forward Darrell Arthur is more murky. Arthur has been battling pain in his surgically repaired left knee for much of the season, and he hasnt played since March 11.
