Forward Kenneth Faried (back spasms) did not make the trip to Chicago, where his Denver Nuggets beat the Chicago Bulls Tuesday night, and missed his second straight game.

He last played against Brooklyn on Friday and is expected to be sidelined at least another week. “The back is a funny thing, and he’s had back issues in the past,” coach Michael Malone said.
