DENVER (AP) — A person with knowledge of the situation says Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon needed 21 stitches after suffering lacerations to his face and right hand while being bitten by a family dog on Christmas.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details haven’t been released.

Gordon is averaging 13.6 points and 6.9 rebounds for the defending NBA champions.

He had 16 points and 10 rebounds in a 120-114 win over Golden State on Christmas.
