Karl misses Nuggets' game

Associated Press

DENVER -- Denver coach George Karl is skipping the Nuggets' game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night as he continues cancer treatment.

This is the seventh game Karl has skipped since announcing a month ago he had been diagnosed with throat cancer.

Karl also missed the Nuggets' game Thursday night against New Orleans, the first time he had sat out a home game.

The Nuggets took a 5-1 record under acting head coach Adrian Dantley into Saturday night's game.
