  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Scores in double figures

    Strawther racked up 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), one rebound, four assists and three steals in 19 minutes during Sunday's 132-120 victory over the Spurs.

    Aaron Gordon (heel) and Jamal Murray (hamstring) were sidelined for this contest, allowing Strawther to handle an increased workload. The rookie has played at least 15 minutes in four of Denver's last five games, averaging 5.6 points, 1.8 assists and 1.4 rebounds during that stretch. However, Gordon and Murray are expected to return to action this week, so Strawther's path to consistent playing time won't be as easy.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Posts 21 points in reserve role

    Strawther amassed 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 19 minutes during Monday's 134-116 win over the Pelicans.

    The Nuggets had to manage without Jamal Murray (hamstring), and his absence could extend well into next week. Reggie Jackson was expected to absorb a lot of Murray's output, but Strawther came off the bench and provided support to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who took on more of the floor general role as the game progressed. The 2023 first-round pick out of Gonzaga has proven to be a valuable asset for Denver, as he's versatile enough to play a variety of roles with the second unit.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Plays double-digit minutes

    Strawther racked up five points (2-7 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two blocks and one steal in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 110-89 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Strawther played double-digit minutes off the bench for the first time this season Wednesday, but he wasn't very efficient from the floor. While he had some defensive success through his two blocks, he's unlikely to have much fantasy upside this year unless the Nuggets deal with injuries at some point.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Off injury report

    Strawther (ankle) isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game versus the Lakers.

    Strawther is good to go Tuesday despite missing Denver's preseason finale with a right ankle sprain. The rookie forward will likely compete for a depth role in the Nuggets' forward rotation.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Dealing with ankle injury

    Strawther didn't play in Thursday's 103-90 preseason win over the Clippers due to a right ankle sprain.

    Strawther has been one of the standout performers during preseason action, so his absence from Denver's final exhibition is disappointing. The severity of the sprain remains unclear, but his status for the start of the regular season could be in jeopardy. While the rookie has been playing well, Denver is one of the deepest teams in the NBA, so even when he's healthy, Strawther's path to playing time is crowded.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Back to bench

    Strawther will return to the bench for Thursday's preseason game against the Clippers.

    Strawther has turned a lot of heads in the preseason, averaging 17.8 points and 3.5 three-pointers through three games so far. He has made a very strong case to be in the rotation Opening Night, but a role is not guaranteed with the defending champions.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Gets starting nod

    Strawther is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason game versus the Clippers, Tomer Azarly of reports.

    Strawther will replace Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (rest) in the starting five Tuesday. The rookie forward isn't expected to receive much playing time once the regular season rolls around, but he has impressed during Summer League and preseason action.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Goes off for 23 in preseason win

    Strawther finished Sunday's preseason win over the Bulls with 23 points (8-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT) in 25 minutes.

    The 29th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft continues to turn heads during the preseason. Strawther has now scored 20, 16 and 23 points, respectively in his three exhibitions contests, picking up where he left off after an impressive showing at Summer League in July. Over that three-game run, Strawther has drained 12-of-24 attempts from beyond the arc. While it's unclear how much of a role he'll carve out to open the regular season, Strawther has, at the very least, forced his name into the conversation for some reserve minutes on the wing. Strawther's primary competition for minutes figures to come from Christian Braun and Justin Holiday.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Scores team-high 20 points

    Strawther compiled 20 points (8-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt), five rebounds and three assists across 21 minutes in Tuesday's 115-107 win over the Suns.

    Denver's 2023 first-round pick had an excellent Summer League, and based on Tuesday's game, it looks like the Gonzaga product will make a play for a substantial spot in the team's rotation. Unlike the Suns, who sat most of their starters, the Nuggets put their starting lineup on the court, furthering the narrative of Strawther's potential presence in the second or third unit. He put together a much better line than fellow draftee Hunter Tyson, who scored zero points in 29 minutes on the floor.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Finishes Summer League on high note

    Strawther tallied 25 points (8-16 FG, 5-11 3PT, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, two assists a a steal and a block across 32 minutes of Saturday's 89-86 win over the Knicks.

    Strawther showcased his shooting ability Saturday, knocking down five of his 11 attempts from beyond the arc while finishing with a team-high nine rebounds. The Gonzaga product has put together a strong summer thus far but will likely have a hard time finding a spot in the rotation for the reigning champions.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Plays well against Miami

    Strawther accounted for 23 points (7-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal in 27 minutes of Friday's 112-81 Summer League win against Miami.

    Strawther was struggling a bit in Summer League prior to Friday, shooting 31.7 percent from the field in three games. However, with Peyton Watson shut down for the remainder of the games, Strawther really showed out Friday along with Hunter Tyson. Strong performance aside, it's hard to imagine Strawther being in the rotation to start the regular season.

  • Nuggets' Julian Strawther: Goes to Denver at No. 29

    Strawther was selected by the Nuggets with the 29th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.

    Strawther was selected to the WCC First Team last season as a junior at Gonzaga, averaging 15.2 points on 47/41/78 shooting, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists. He's a prototypical three-and-D wing, though he doesn't rack up many defensive stats. In joining Denver, Strawther will compete for backup minutes, looking to get easy looks from Nikola Jokic passes.
