Dozier revealed Wednesday that he only recently returned to full-contact work, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

Dozier missed the final 17 games (including playoffs) of the season due to a strained adductor, and his recovery extended well into the summer. The guard told the media Wednesday that before he returned to Denver, he hadn't played 5-on-5 since his final appearance of the regular season back on May 3 against the Lakers. Regardless, Dozier appears to be fully healthy with training camp set to begin next week. The former South Carolina standout will be part of the crew of guards who will help compensate for the absence of Jamal Murray (knee) to begin the season.
