  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Placed in COVID-19 protocols

    Hyland won't play Wednesday at Orlando after being placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

    Hyland and Austin Rivers both entered the health and safety protocols Wednesday, though it's unclear if either or both tested positive for the virus. In any case, both will likely be out for multiple games, leaving an already shorthanded Denver squad even more depleted. Monte Morris and Facundo Campazzo are both likely to see increased roles in the short term, and Markus Howard could move into the backcourt rotation to provide another healthy guard on the second unit.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Cleared to return Monday

    Hyland (ankle) will return for Monday's game at Miami.

    An ankle injury suffered on Nov. 21 cost Hyland some time, but due to how the schedule broke down, he missed only two contests over the course of seven days. The rookie guard will be back in the rotation as the Nuggets look to snap a six-game losing streak against a Heat team that will be without both Jimmy Butler (back)) and Tyler Herro (soreness).

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Likely out again Friday

    Hyland (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Bucks.

    The rookie guard is still nursing the sprained ankle that landed him in a walking boot following Sunday's loss to the Suns. The Nuggets haven't officially ruled him out, but Hyland is well on course to miss at least one more contest heading into the weekend.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Won't play Tuesday

    Hyland (ankle) is out for Tuesday's contest against the Blazers, Jamie Hudson of KOIN 6 News Portland reports.

    Hyland was sporting a walking boot on his sprained right ankle after departing Sunday's loss to the Suns, so it isn't a surprise to see him ruled out for Tuesday's contest. The rookie first-round pick is averaging 7.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 15.4 minutes in a reserve role for Denver this season. Those minutes will likely be distributed to Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers during Hyland's absence.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Leaves Phoenix in walking boot

    Hyland was sporting a walking boot on his sprained right ankle after departing Sunday's 126-97 loss to the Suns, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. He finished with one rebound and missed both of his field-goal attempts across two minutes.

    The Nuggets have yet to comment on Hyland's injury, but reading between the lines, it would be a surprise if he's available for Tuesday's game at Portland. His availability for Friday's game against Milwaukee could also be in jeopardy, but Denver has only two games on the schedule this week. Injury questions or not, Hyland shouldn't be started in weekly leagues.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Won't return to Sunday's game

    Hyland (ankle) will not return to Sunday's game against the Suns, Mike Singer of the Denver Post reports.

    Hyland departed the game late in the first quarter after appearing to roll his right ankle. The Nuggets initially called Hyland questionable to return, but they've since clarified that the rookie will remain out for the rest of the night. Consider Hyland day-to-day heading into the Nuggets' two-game Week 6, which features matchups at Portland (Tuesday) and versus Milwaukee (Friday).

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Questionable to return Sunday

    Hyland (ankle) left Sunday's contest against the Lakers and is questionable to return to the game.

    The rookie out of VCU had played just two minutes in the game before exiting with an ankle;e injury. If Hyland can not return that would presumably lead to more minutes for Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers.

    Hyland (hip, ankle) is listed as probable for Friday's contest against the Bulls.

    The rookie guard was a game-time-decision Thursday night against the 76ers but ended up playing 14 minutes in the team's loss. If Hyland can't suit up for their contest Friday, Facundo Campazzo and PJ Dozier emerge as candidates for more opportunities.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Game-time decision vs. Sixers

    Hyland (ankle) is a game-time decision against the Sixers on Thursday, according to Mike Singer of The Denver Post.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Listed as probable

    Hyland (ankle) is probable for Thursday's game against the 76ers.

    Hyland was initially taken off the injury report for Thursday's game, but he still appears likely to play through his left ankle sprain. He's averaged 11.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 19.3 minutes per game across the last four contests.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Absent from injury report

    Hyland (ankle) isn't listed on the injury report for Thursday's game against the 76ers, Harrison Wind of reports.

    Hyland suffered a left ankle injury during Monday's loss to the Mavericks, but it appears to have been a minor issue since he's absent from the injury report. He could have an increased role Thursday with Michael Porter (back) out and Will Barton (back) unlikely to play.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Limited by left ankle injury

    Hyland appeared to suffer a left ankle injury in the first half of Monday's 111-101 loss to the Mavericks and didn't play in the final 8:27 of the contest, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

    After putting up a career-high 18 points in the Nuggets' previous game Sunday against the Trail Blazers, Hyland looked to be in line for another elevated role off the bench for the second half of the back-to-back set with all of Will Barton (back), Michael Porter (back) and Jamal Murray (knee) sidelined. Ultimately, Hyland wasn't healthy enough to take advantage of the opportunity, as he was forced to check out of the game in the first half with the injury. He returned to action in the third quarter, only to be sidelined for much of the fourth quarter after he appeared to aggravate the injury. Winge notes that Hyland received some treatment on his ankle and would have been able to return late in the game if needed, but the Nuggets ultimately elected to exercise some caution with the rookie. Consider Hyland questionable heading into the Nuggets' next game Thursday against the 76ers.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Scores 18 with four threes

    Hyland contributed 18 points (5-9 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 23 minutes during Sunday's 124-95 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    The rookie scored in double figures for a third straight game as he continues to provide a nice spark for the Nuggets off the bench. Over the last three games, he's provided 45 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists to go with nine three-pointers. Field goal percentage -- he sits at 41.3 percent for the season -- remains an issue, but Hyland will be worth monitoring if he can consistently earn 20-plus minutes in coach Michael Malone's backcourt rotation.
