DENVER -- Portland center Marcus Camby missed the Trail Blazers' game against the Nuggets on Tuesday with a sprained right ankle and was replaced in the lineup by forward Dante Cunningham.

Camby was injured with 7:26 left in the third quarter of the Trail Blazers' victory over Utah Jazz on Monday and did not return. He had missed two of Portland's previous four games with a shoulder injury.

Camby is averaging 6.3 points and 10.9 rebounds in 29 games this season. Cunningham, who will make his third start of the season, is averaging 4.6 points and 3.2 rebounds.
