Top Nuggets News

  • Nuggets' Jack White: Out again Saturday

    White (adductor) will not play Saturday against the 76ers.

    White doesn't log consistent minutes even when healthy, so his absence will largely go unnoticed in fantasy circles. His next opportunity to don the Nuggets' uniform surfaces Tuesday against the Pelicans.

  • Nuggets' Collin Gillespie: Remains sidelined Saturday

    Gillespie (lower leg) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Philadelphia.

    Gillespie has yet to make his NBA debut due to a fractured right lower leg, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to action. A better timetable for his return should come into focus once he's able to increase his activity level at practice.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Not on injury report

    Porter (personal) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

    Porter rejoined the Nuggets in Philadelphia on Friday, and he's been cleared to return from a three-game absence due to a personal matter. Bruce Brown (knee) will likely take on a bench role with Porter back in action. Over his five appearances prior to his absence, Porter averaged 16.8 points and 5.2 rebounds in 28.8 minutes per game.

  • Nuggets' Bruce Brown: Questionable at Philly

    Brown is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the 76ers due to left knee inflammation.

    Brown has seen increased minutes lately as the Nuggets dealt with absences, so it's possible the extra workload caused a knee issue. If he takes Saturday's game off, coach Michael Malone may hand out bigger roles to Christian Braun, Vlatko Cancar and Jeff Green.

  • Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Questionable Saturday

    Murray is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the 76ers due to a left hip sprain.

    Murray was listed as managing a knee injury for Wednesday's game in Milwaukee, making it appear that he was likely resting more than anything. However, the addition of a left hip sprain suggests there is more uncertainty surrounding his status leading up to Saturday. The team should supply more information on his status come game day. Bruce Brown (knee), who was also added to the injury report ahead of Saturday's contest as questionable, could draw another start if Brown can play and Murray is unavailable.

  • Nuggets' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Probable vs. 76ers

    Caldwell-Pope (wrist) is probable for Saturday's matchup against the 76ers.

    Caldwell-Pope should be back in the fold following a one-game absence, though fantasy managers need to keep an eye out for the statuses of Jamal Murray (hip) and Bruce Brown (knee), who are both questionable. In January, KCP is averaging 10.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.7 steals in 31.3 minutes.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Likely to play Saturday

    Jokic (hamstring) is probable for Saturday's game against Philadelphia.

    Jokic has missed three of the last four games due to a hamstring issue, but he should be back in action for Saturday's matchup. He's posted triple-doubles in six of his previous seven outings, averaging 24.6 points, 12.6 rebounds, 11.7 assists and 1.3 steals in 33.4 minutes per game.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Questionable Saturday

    Porter (personal) is questionable for Saturday's game against the 76ers, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Porter has missed the last three games due to a personal matter but rejoined the Nuggets in Philadelphia on Friday. While it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to suit up Saturday, he appears to be getting closer to returning to the court. Once he's back in action, Bruce Brown will likely retreat to the bench.

  • Nuggets' Jack White: Dealing with adductor injury

    White sat out Wednesday's 107-99 loss to the Bucks with a left adductor strain.

    White will look to move past the injury in time to suit up in Saturday's game in Philadelphia, but even if he's available, the two-way rookie out of Duke is unlikely to be featured in head coach Michael Malone's rotation.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Scores 15 points off bench

    Hyland chipped in 15 points (5-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 25 minutes during Wednesday's 107-99 loss to the Bucks.

    Hyland reached the 25-minute mark for the first time since late December and took advantage of the opportunity, as he scored in double digits for the first time since Jan. 11. He'd been dealing with some efficiency issues, and his numbers have been affected by that, as Hyland is averaging a mere 10.9 points per game while shooting 41.7 percent from the field in January.

  • Nuggets' Bruce Brown: Comes close to double-double

    Brown racked up 12 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, one block and three steals over 36 minutes during Wednesday's 107-99 loss to Milwaukee.

    Brown didn't have his best shooting performance, but he ended two rebounds away from recording a double-double. He's been starting of late, finding himself in the first unit in each of Denver's last three games, but he's finding ways to deliver even when he comes off the bench. The former Miami standout has scored in double digits in seven consecutive games.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Double-doubles in loss

    Gordon closed Wednesday's 107-99 loss to the Bucks with 26 points (10-24 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 37 minutes.

    Gordon was the only regular starter that featured in the first unit for Denver, and it showed, as he often was the go-to guy on offense and finished with a strong double-double despite needing 26 shots to score 24 points. While he can produce when given enough touches, Gordon has reached the 20-point mark just three times this month, and he's expected to revert to a lesser role offensively if most of the starters return for Saturday's matchup against the 76ers.

  • Nuggets' Collin Gillespie: Still out Wednesday

    Gillespie (leg) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Bucks.

    The two-way rookie out of Villanova has yet to make his NBA debut while rehabbing from offseason surgery to repair his fractured left leg. It's unclear when he'll be able to suit up, but his return will likely be signaled by an assignment to the G League or participation in 5-on-5 scrimmages during practice.

  • Nuggets' Zeke Nnaji: Moves to starting unit

    Nnaji is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    The Nuggets are set to rest almost their entire regular starting lineup, and this will lead to more minutes for Nnaji, who will start in the frontcourt alongside Aaron Gordon. This will be the fifth start of the campaign for Nnaji, who's averaging 8.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in that role.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Set to start Wednesday

    Cancar is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    The Nuggets are set to rest almost their entire regular starting lineup, and this will lead to more minutes for Cancar, who will make his first start of the campaign. Cancar is averaging 4.7 points per game this season.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Moves to starting lineup Wednesday

    Braun is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    The Nuggets are set to rest almost their entire regular starting lineup, and this will lead to more minutes for Braun, who will start in the backcourt alongside Bruce Brown. It will be the second start of the season for the former Kansas product.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Sitting out Wednesday

    Porter (personal) will not take the floor Wednesday versus the Bucks, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Porter will miss out on his third consecutive game while tending to a personal matter, and it's unclear exactly when he will be ready to rejoin the team. His next opportunity to do so arrives Saturday in Philadelphia. His absence should allow Bruce Brown to draw another start, and the Nuggets will be running out a skeleton crew with four starters unavailable.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Good to go Wednesday

    Hyland (finger) will play Wednesday against the Bucks, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Hyland will return following a one-game absence. He should see plenty of touches Wednesday, as the Nuggets are out four starters. When seeing at least 24 minutes, Hyland has averaged 20.9 points, 5.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals.
