DENVER (AP) - Nuggets center JaVale McGee was ruled out of Denver's game against the Indiana Pacers on Monday night due to soreness in his left shin.

McGee has been experiencing pain recently in and around his left tibia. The Nuggets said he underwent a CT scan to try to determine whether a stress fracture was the source of the problem. However, there was no immediate indication of a stress fracture.

McGee was scheduled to have an MRI on Tuesday and doctors will review the results of both exams before formulating a diagnosis.

Coach George Karl said Timofey Mozgov would likely see increased minutes off the bench in the absence of McGee, who is averaging 10.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game as one of the Nuggets' top reserves.
