Top Hunter Tyson News

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Cleared for action Wednesday

    Tyson (illness) will play in Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Tyson will return from a one-game absence due to a non-COVID illness. Considering the Nuggets will be missing only Aaron Gordon on Wednesday, Tyson will likely be a fantasy non-factor.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Iffy for Wednesday

    Tyson (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Rockets.

    Tyson is in danger of missing his second straight contest due to a non-COVID illness. However, the rookie forward's potential absence shouldn't impact Denver's rotation.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Inactive Monday

    Tyson (illness) will not play in Monday's game against the Clippers.

    Tyson joins Nikola Jokic (back), Aaron Gordon (heel) and Jamal Murray (hamstring) as key inactives for Denver on Monday. Peyton Watson is available despite also dealing with an illness, while Michael Porter should be busy in the Nuggets' depleted frontcourt.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Dealing with illness

    Tyson is questionable for Monday's game against the Clippers due to an illness.

    Tyson and Peyton Watson both landed on the injury report due to an illness, but the latter is probable while the former is questionable. Tyson's potential absence wouldn't have an impact on Denver's rotation, as he has appeared in just six games this season and has yet to play more than four minutes.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Scores two in loss

    Tyson contributed two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound in four minutes during Wednesday's 110-89 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Tyson hasn't been a consistent part of the Nuggets' rotation this year, as he's appeared in just two of the team's first five games. The rookie second-rounder has averaged just 4.0 minutes per game over his two appearances.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Moves to bench

    Tyson isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's season opener against the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Tyson started in Denver's preseason finale but unsurprisingly will be replaced by Michael Porter in the starting five Wednesday. Tyson is expected to compete for a depth role in the Nuggets' rotation this season.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Gets starting nod

    Tyson will get the starting nod in Thursday's preseason game against the Clippers.

    Tyson has been a standout in the preseason, averaging 10.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 three-pointers. Michael Porter (ankle) is sitting out again Thursday, but it's pretty cool to see the rookie Tyson get an opportunity with the rest of Denver's usual starters.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Joins usual starters in win

    Tyson compiled five points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and an assist across 21 minutes during Thursday's 103-90 win over the Clippers.

    Although Michael Porter (ankle) will be the starter to begin the season if he's healthy, coach Michael Malone's decision to start Tyson is a strong indication that he will make waves in the second unit. His excellent work during the preseason bolstered him from a potential G League candidate to a lock for the 15-man roster. The Clemson product has a versatile skill set, highlighted by a steady three-point shot. He'll be able to fill many roles with the second unit this season.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Excels again from bench

    Tyson totaled 19 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 27 minutes during Tuesday's 116-103 loss to the Clippers.

    Tyson is one of the team's biggest surprises in the preseason, as the second-round pick out of Clemson was a long shot to make the roster. Instead, he's logged more minutes than most of Denver's starters and keeps pouring in the points. At 6-foot-8, Tyson can be plugged in at either wing position and is an adept deep threat, which was his bread and butter in college. The depth chart for Denver is crowded, but Tyson is making a case for a spot on the 15-man roster.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Impresses off bench in win

    Tyson racked up 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt), five rebounds and a block across 17 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 116-102 preseason win over the Bulls.

    Tyson is vying for a bench spot in the Nuggets' rotation by the time the 2023-24 regular season rolls around, and he was impressive in this one, contributing on both ends of the court and looking efficient on offense. Tyson has scored in double digits in each of his last two preseason outings, though an uptick in his three-point shooting (5-for-19) would boost his case even further.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Productive against Chicago

    Tyson recorded 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-8 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 29 minutes during Thursday's preseason double-overtime loss to Chicago.

    Tyson had a dominant performance during Summer League play this year, and while he was held scoreless during the Nuggets' preseason opener against the Suns, he bounced back nicely during Thursday's double-overtime matchup. Tyson was a second-round pick by the Nuggets in this year's draft and is unlikely to have as significant of a role during the regular season, but it's possible he carves out some minutes off the bench following his strong offseason performance.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Impresses yet again

    Tyson tallied 31 points (11-13 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 27 minutes during Friday's 112-81 Summer League win over Miami.

    Tyson and Peyton Watson have looked dominant for the Nuggets in Summer League. Denver shut down Watson prior to Friday's game, leaving Tyson to get all the shots he could handle. Tyson is making a strong case to soak up some of the minutes that Jeff Green and Bruce Brown left behind.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Double-doubles Wednesday

    Tyson tallied 19 points (5-12 FG, 3-9 3PT, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one steal over 31 minutes of Wednesday's 96-91 loss to Utah in Summer League.

    Though Tyson stands at just 6-foot-8, he filled the role of a big man Wednesday, pulling down a game-high 12 rebounds and getting to the line six times. The Clemson product also produced 19 points, trailing only Julian Strawther (21 points). Tyson has turned some heads during Summer League and could sneak into some early playing time come the regular season.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Scores 21 off bench

    Tyson finished with 21 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3PT, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 27 minutes of Friday's 92-85 Summer League loss to the Bucks.

    The 37th pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, Tyson came off the bench firing from everywhere and had 16 points by halftime. If Friday was any indication, it's easy to see why he got three years of his salary guaranteed by the Nuggets. He'll need to keep his foot on the gas if he has any hopes of cracking Denver's rotation for the upcoming season, as the Nuggets will be looking for guys to step up with Bruce Brown and Jeff Green no longer around.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Inks deal with Denver

    Tyson and the Nuggets agreed Wednesday on a four-year deal worth up to $7.7 million, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    According to Singer, the first three years of the deal are fully guaranteed, while the Nuggets hold a $2.41 million club option for the fourth year in 2026-27. The guaranteed portion of the deal in particular is fairly atypical for a player selected in the second round of the draft, but the Nuggets evidently envision the 23-year-old forward from Clemson becoming a key depth piece early on his career. At least heading into his first NBA training camp, Tyson is likely to find himself outside of head coach Michael Malone's rotation, though a strong showing in both the Summer League and the preseason could vault him ahead of Peyton Watson, Vlatko Cancar and fellow rookie Julian Strawther in the competition to replace some of the bench minutes that have opened up following the departures of Bruce Brown and Jeff Green.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Drafted by Nuggets

    Tyson was selected by the Nuggets with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.

    A fifth-year player out of Clemson, Tyson was voted to the ACC All-First Team last year behind 15.3 points on 48/41/84 shooting, 9.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists. The forward has shown an ability to play well in a movement-based offense, which is what the Nuggets play surrounding Nikola Jokic. Tyson may not be in the rotation right away, but on the surface, he appears to be a good fit.
