Chris "Birdman" Andersen says he's fully recovered from a bout of food poisoning that kept him out of the Denver Nuggets' 119-117 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

Andersen said he ate something bad at the team hotel Monday and spent the game in the locker room suffering from severe abdominal cramps and vomiting.

The Nuggets sorely missed their energetic center as Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki scored a series-high 44 points and pulled down 13 rebounds to help the Mavericks stave off elimination.

Andersen said he's ready to play in Game 5 Wednesday night in Denver.
