Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets



Jamal Murray (groin) had successful surgery to repair core muscle-related injuries. The surgery was performed on Thursday in Philadelphia and general manager Tim Connelly said it was for a "couple" injuries. Murray will resume basketball related activities this summer and is expected to be at full strength when the Nuggets open training camp this fall. There is no word on if Murray will be at Summer League, but it's possible he won't be all the way back.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets



The Nuggets are "hopeful" that Juancho Hernangomez will play with the Spanish national team this summer, according to GM Tim Connelly. Hernangomez played three seasons in Spain's professional league, culminating in 2015-16 averages of 9.7 points, 1.0 threes, 5.7 boards, 0.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.3 blocks in 23.7 minutes. The 21-year-old is on a rookie-scale contract, with Denver owing him no more than $3.3 million per season through the 2019-20 season, so it makes sense that they'd want to see him develop and compete at a high level. We'll keep a close eye on his progress this offseason.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets



General manager Tim Connelly said the top priority is to bring back Danilo Gallinari for next season. "You never know how the market is going to progress," Connelly said. There is a lot to this story with Gallo having a $16.1 million player option, and also Connelly said the Nuggets need to add more perimeter defense around Nikola Jokic. Gallinari cleared the 60-game mark for just the second time since joining the Nuggets for a full season in 2011-12, so it makes sense for him to hit the market at age 28. Plus, Juancho Hernangomez probably deserves more minutes for a litany of reasons.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets



General manager Tim Connelly said Mason Plumlee "is going to be a huge piece of our core." Connelly said he's still happy with the Jusuf Nurkic and Plumlee deal, which is part of the reason the Nuggets didn't make the playoffs. The Blazers were happy to let Plumlee go because of his upcoming restricted free agency, but the Nuggets do look like they want to sign him. He'll be backing up Nikola Jokic, especially after the Jokic-Plumlee lineups were not working later in the season.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets



General manager Tim Connelly said Jamal Murray will have surgery for a couple of different injuries. Presumably, one of those injuries is going to be his sports hernia he played through for most of his rookie season. Even with the injuries, Murray busted out in April, averaging 15.1 points, 3.6 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.6 treys on 44.9 percent from the field and perfect free throw shooting. Assuming these surgeries won't affect him in a couple months, Murray is going to be a popular target in drafts.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets



The Nuggets will attempt to sign Gary Harris to a contract extension this offseason. Harris, who averaged career-highs in points (14.9), rebounds (3.1), assists (2.9) and shooting percentage (50.3), is scheduled to make $2.5 million next season. "I still don’t think the league appreciates how good he is and how young he is," Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly said. "He’s going to be here for a very long time." Injuries are a concern (he played in only 57 games), but Harris' fantasy stock is definitely on the rise.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets



Jamal Murray played through a sports hernia this season. He played in all 82 games, so a ton of credit goes to Murray. Coach Mike Malone said Murray was playing through some pain, and now we know the details. Murray made it very clear he is capable of being a point guard, especially with how well the Nuggets fared with him at the one. In fact, the lineup of Murray, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Nikola Jokic posted a +21.4 net rating in 67 minutes since the break -- that ranks fourth in the NBA among 82 lineups with at least 60 minutes in that span. Murray figures to be a popular breakout pick next year.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets



Wilson Chandler was a healthy scratch on Wednesday in the season finale vs. the Thunder. The Nuggets had nothing to play for, so Chandler missed his 11th game of the season. The 29-year-old wing is owed $12 million in 2017-18 and has a player option for 2018-19 worth $12.8 million, and with Danilo Gallinari expected to opt out and hit free agency this summer, Chandler could be looking at another 30-minute role next season. He finished the 2016-17 campaign with averages of 15.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.5 triples on 46.1 percent shooting.
