Nuggets News

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried (back), Will Barton (foot) and Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) are questionable to play Sunday vs. the Thunder. Faried has been playing through the back issue over the past three, and while he's been fighting through the pain, it's clearly affected his play as his minutes have been limited to the teens. He'll remain a risky target even if he is able to get out there tonight. Wilson Chandler should continue to come off the bench if Barton is inactive, and Jamal Murray would be forced into heavy minutes if Mudiay can't give it a go with Jameer Nelson (calf) already having been ruled out.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (left foot) is questionable to play against the Thunder on Sunday. It'll be the second time he's been listed as questionable. Barton was ruled out in the afternoon on Friday, so maybe he'll be a game-time call. If he can't go, Gary Harris gets another small bump to what has been a magnificent finish to his season.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Emmanuel Mudiay (right ankle sprain) is questionable to face the Thunder on Sunday. If he can't go, we will get a heavy dose of Jamal Murray against Russell Westbrook. Coach Mike Malone also said that Murray is playing through some pain, but he's obviously a go and a must-start player. When Murray sits, the Nuggets may have to go no PG, but that's not a problem with Nikola Jokic -- Gary Harris would possibly be staggered. Mudiay didn't seem to suffer anything major on Friday, so there's a decent chance he can give it a go.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson (calf) is listed as out for Sunday against the Thunder. Emmanuel Mudiay is also banged up, so get ready for a lot of blue arrows to fly. Jamal Murray is coming off a career-high 30 points from Friday, so he'll have the spotlight on him against Russell Westbrook. If you added Murray this week for your championship, it might be the difference for you.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray scored a career-high 30 points with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers during a 122-106 win over the Pelicans on Friday. The fact that Murray hit 30 points with only two bow-and-arrow celebrations for his treys is remarkable. Coach Mike Malone also said that Murray is playing through some pain, so his arrow is clearly pointing up. Murray maintained throughout the offseason that he is a point guard, and his recent play could have him become just that next season. Sunday against Russell Westbrook should be a blast, assuming Jameer Nelson (calf) can't play.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic scored 23 points with 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. That makes it a career-high five straight games with a double-double. He's not getting cheap ones either, averaging 20.2 points, 13.2 boards, 7.0 boards, 1.8 steals, 0.2 blocks and 0.8 treys in that span. Magic Jokic will be disappearing off draft boards in the first round next year.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris handed out a career-high nine assists with 20 points, six rebounds and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. The Nuggets have a couple promising young guards these days. What's more, Jamal Murray's transition to point guard is a great sign for Harris to get big minutes. He's shaping up to be a mid-round pick next year as one of the most underrated players in the NBA.

Apr 08 - 1:10 AM

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler scored seven points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. He was questionable for this one after missing shootaround due to migraines. Chandler did suffer a leg injury in the second half, but he was able to play through it. He's off on Saturday before a big game against the Thunder on Sunday. For now consider him probable and he's probably going to be on the injury report, too.
