  • Nuggets' Nah'Shon Hyland: Gets endorsement from Malone

    Coach Michael Malone confirmed that Hyland will be a part of the Nuggets' bench rotation to begin the season, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports. "I think it's undeniable," Malone said of the rookie guard Tuesday. "I think Bones Hyland has been outstanding in the preseason. I think PJ Dozier has been outstanding in the preseason. Those guys are in a really good spot."

    With Jamal Murray (knee) sidelined for several more months, the Nuggets will need to piece together a backcourt rotation, and both Hyland and Dozier look to be in line to fill consistent roles off the bench. Monte Morris is the presumed fill-in starter at point guard, while Will Barton will likely hold down the shooting guard spot. At 6-foot-3, 173, Hyland has the body of a point guard, but he's capable of defending both backcourt spots, and that end of the court is what will ultimately keep him on the floor early in his career. In Friday's preseason matchup against Minnesota, Hyland finished with 21 points, eight boards, four assists and six three-pointers.

  • Nuggets' Nah'Shon Hyland: Hits six threes in OT loss

    Hyland provided 21 points (7-13 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes during Friday's 114-112 overtime preseason loss to the Timberwolves.

    Hyland was absolutely launching from beyond the arc, though his performance was muted by the fact that he had six turnovers. He's been a sparkplug for Denver during the preseason. In three contests, the rookie has averaged 17.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 26.2 minutes.

  • Nuggets' Nah'Shon Hyland: Scores 19 in preseason debut

    Hyland finished Monday's preseason game against the Clippers with 19 points (8-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

    The rookie out of VCU saw a team-high 24 minutes of action off the bench and had an impressive debut, hitting all seven of his two-point attempts and making an impact on the defensive end. Lauded for his defensive intensity in college, Hyland could work his way into the back end of the regular-season rotation for coach Michael Malone as part of the slew of guards who will help compensate for Jamal Murray's (knee) absence.

  • Nuggets' Nah'Shon Hyland: Expected to play Tuesday

    Hyland (COVID-19 protocols) is expected to make his summer league debut Tuesday against Boston, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

    Hyland was held out of the opener due to COVID-19 protocols, but it looks like he's passed through the league's protocols and should be available as Denver looks to bounce back from a blowout loss in its first Las Vegas game. Hyland was the No. 26 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft out of VCU.

  • Nuggets' Nah'Shon Hyland: Out for LVSL opener

    Hyland won't be available Sunday for the Nuggets' Las Vegas Summer League matchup with the Heat due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    In addition to Hyland, the Nuggets also ruled out Markus Howard and Zeke Nnaji, but it's unclear at this point if any of three tested positive for the virus. Hyland will hope to gain clearance to play in advance of the Nuggets' second game in Las Vegas on Tuesday versus the Celtics.
