Nuggets' Jeff Green: Officially questionable for Tuesday
Green (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's meeting with the Mavericks.
Coach Michael Malone noted Sunday that Green had a "good chance" of playing Tuesday after being absent since Nov. 22 due to a bruised right knee. Considering the lengthy absence Green would likely be on a minutes restriction. Regardless, his return would mean fewer minutes for Vlatko Cancar.... See More ... See Less

Caldwell-Pope is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks due to a right wrist sprain.
This is the first time Caldwell-Pope has been on the injury report due to the sprain, with Jeff Green (knee) and Peyton Watson (hamstring) joining him as questionable.

Nuggets' Jeff Green: Trending toward return
Coach Michael Malone said Sunday that Green (knee) has a "good chance" to be available for Tuesday's game against Dallas, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Green has missed the last seven games due to a knee injury but will be in the mix to return to the court against the Mavericks.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Leads team from deep in loss
Murray chipped in 18 points (6-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, four rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes during Sunday's 121-106 loss to New Orleans.
Murray tallied his 16th straight game in double figures and has now score 15 or more points 12 times this season. After missing all of last year, Murray looks to be finding his comfort zone. The Kentucky product is shooting nearly 40 percent from three and essentially replicating his 2020-21 contributions in rebounds, assists and steals.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Eighth straight double-double
Jokic contributed 32 points (13-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-9 FT), 16 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one block over 37 minutes during Sunday's 121-106 loss to New Orleans.
Jokic led Denver with an all-around performance that fell two assists shy of a triple-double, settling for his eighth straight double-double instead. The reigning two-time MVP tied his season high in rebounds and now has his first 30-15 game of the 2022-23 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Peyton Watson: Sitting again Sunday
Watson (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.
Watson is set to miss his second game in a row on account of a right hamstring strain. The rookie first-round pick out of UCLA has appeared in just six games all season, logging no more than four minutes on any occasion. His absence won't affect head coach Michael Malone's rotation....

Nuggets' Collin Gillespie: Still sidelined
Gillespie (lower leg) remains out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.
The Nuggets haven't provided much in the way of an update on Gillespie since he underwent surgery in late July to address a lower right leg fracture. The two-way rookie out of Villanova remains out indefinitely.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Jeff Green: Not playing Sunday
Green (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Green was originally listed as questionable, but he has been downgraded roughly 90 minutes before the 3:30 p.m. ET opening tip.

Nuggets' Peyton Watson: Questionable for Sunday's contest

Nuggets' Jeff Green: Officially questionable Sunday
Green (knee) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Pelicans.
Green is questionable to play in Sunday's game after missing the last six games due to a right knee contusion. Nuggets coach Mike Malone said Friday that Green could return Sunday, so if he's unavailable against New Orleans, he should be good to go for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks with an extra day off....

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Scores 20 with seven dimes
Murray logged 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 117-109 loss to the Hawks.
Murray continues to start despite dealing with a quadriceps injury, and the star point guard has managed to remain effective while operating in his usual role as Denver's second-best offensive threat behind Nikola Jokic. Murray has reached the 20-point mark in his last four appearances, shooting 53.7 percent from the field and 46.4 percent from the three-point range during that span.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Sniffs triple-double once again
Jokic racked up 24 points (10-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-4 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Friday's 117-109 loss to the Hawks.
Another game, another instance in which Jokic ends up quite close to recording a triple-double. That has been the case in all of the six games since he returned from a stint in the league's health and safety protocols, and the two-time MVP continues to excel every time he steps on the court. Jokic is averaging 27.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 8.8 assists per contest in that six-game span.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Goes for 16 points in loss
Hyland (illness) accumulated 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes during Friday's 117-109 loss to the Hawks.
Hyland returned to the court following a four-game absence, and he didn't miss a beat while operating as one of Denver's main second-unit offensive threats. Excluding the Nov. 22 game against the Pistons, in which he only logged nine minutes due to an illness that forced him out early, Hyland has been a consistent scorer with double-digit points in eight straight appearances....
