Marcus Camby Update

(Boulder-CO) I have sleuthed around, contacted those in the know, and come to a conclusion about the state of Marcus Camby's back. From what I have gathered the "Captain" will receive treatment today from Nuggets trainer Jim Gillen and will be a game-time decision depending on how his back feels come tip-off. If he does play, Nuggets fans should expect him to play limited minutes and to see a lot of the well rested Reggie Evans tonight against the Raptors. Tonight's game isn't exactly a must win, so if Marcus does sit or play very little it is not going to be an issue that will potentially sink the ship, but the Nuggets will need Nene to continue his rebounding prowess and for him to pick up the slack changing the shots of the Raptors' guard penetration.
A side note about the rebounding situation in Denver is Nene has led the Nuggets in rebounding the last three games by posting double-digit boards in each contest.

It's moments like this where a healthy Kenyon Martin would be great to have. I would much rather have a healthy K-mart starting at PF with Nene at Center, than having to start Najera or Evans. If Nene, Evans, or Najera can slow down Chris Bosh and contain him in the low post, I don't see Toronto beating Denver tonight.
