  • Nuggets' Tyler Cook: Signs with Nuggets, won't play in Summer League

    Cook signed a contract with the Nuggets on Friday, but won't participate in the NBA Summer League due to an ankle injury, Mike Hlas of The Gazette reports.

    Cook was able to snag a partially-guaranteed contract after going undrafted out of Iowa, securing an invitation to preseason training camp. The forward won't be able to participate in the NBA Summer League after reportedly sustaining a high ankle sprain during a workout with the Pistons on June 6.

  • Nuggets' Bol Bol: Taken by Nuggets in second round

    Bol (foot) was selected by the Nuggets with the 44th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

    There are no questions surrounding Bol's talent, as the 7-footer is incredibly skilled for someone his size. He played in just nine games at Oregon before suffering a season-ending foot injury, but in that time, he averaged 21.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game while shooting 52 percent from behind the arc. The reason for Bol's drop in Thursday's draft stems from his health, as he is already dealing with foot issues that have plagued a number of big men, and his motor, but if Bol can stay healthy and put it all together, he could end up being the steal of the draft given his sky-high potential.

  • Nuggets' Juancho Hernangomez: Undergoes core muscle surgery

    Hernangomez has undergone core muscle surgery, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

    Kosmider notes that the injury hampered Hernangomez's play around the All-Star break. He did have a strong beginning of the season, starting 25 straight games from Nov. 11 through Jan. 5, shooting 42.5 percent from distance for 11.2 points per game. However, after the break, he appeared in only 21 games and hit just 22.2 percent of his field goals. Hernangomez will presumably be healthy for the beginning of training camp.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter Jr.: Will play Summer League

    Porter said at Monday's exit interview that he's full cleared and expects to play for the Nuggets' summer league entry, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

    The 14th overall pick in the 2018 Draft ended up missing the entirety of his rookie season while rehabbing after back surgery, but he said Monday that he's pain-free and has full medical clearance. Widely considered a top-three prospect in his high school class, Porter was projected as a potential No. 1 pick before injuring his back as a freshman at Missouri. Given that the injury sidelined him for most of the 2017-18 season, we're yet to see Porter against non-high-school competition for extended stretches, but he remains a high-upside prospect who could prove to be a valuable part of the Nuggets' future if he's able to stay healthy. Assuming he's given the green light to play summer league, the 6-10 Porter will be among the most buzzed-about names in Las Vegas.

  • Nuggets' Will Barton: Minimal impact to round out season

    Barton had just eight points, three rebounds, and one assist in 20 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to Portland.

    Barton closed out a difficult season by scoring just eight points in 20 minutes Sunday. An early-season injury derailed what was hoped to have been a strong season for Barton. Despite returning some months ago, Barton was not able to find any sort of consistency and was eventually supplanted in the starting lineup by Torry Craig. He appeared lost on the offensive end of the floor, making many questionable decisions at best, and defensively, offered very little production. Looking forward, Barton is going to have to work hard during the off-season as he looks to regain some of his explosiveness.

  • Nuggets' Gary Harris: Disappointing season comes to an end

    Harris tallied 15 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, and three assists in 39 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Harris ended Sunday's heartbreaking loss with 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting. He was the only Nuggets' player to eclipse 50 percent from the field, a stat that certainly contributed to the loss. This ends what has been a disappointing season for Harris, albeit due to a number of injuries. To be fair, he has appeared somewhat rejuvenated during the playoffs and the hope would be that he can continue that kind of form moving forward. He is likely to fall in a number of fantasy drafts next season and could be a sneaky late round pick should he be able to recapture the form from just 12 months ago.

  • Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Disappointing end to the season

    Murray ended with 17 points (4-18 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 9-9 FT), six rebounds, and five assists in 37 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to Portland.

    Murray could not get anything to fall Sunday, hitting just 4-of-18 from the field on his way to 17 points. The Nuggets were unceremoniously bundled out of the playoffs after establishing an early lead. While the season can certainly be viewed as a success from a team perspective, Murray will likely view his performance Sunday as a key factor in them not advancing to the Western Conference Finals. In fact, Murray's struggles throughout the series typically reflected whether they won or lost. He is one of the more talented scorers in the league but will be looking for more consistency heading into next season and beyond.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Another huge night in Game 7 loss

    Jokic finished with 29 points (11-26 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks, and two assists in 42 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Jokic was unable to carry his team to victory Sunday despite another superb all-around performance. Unfortunately for the Nuggets, both Paul Millsap and Jamal Murray struggled from the field, both shooting under 25 percent. It was certainly not the end Jokic and the Nuggets would have been hoping for but they remain one of the youngest playing units in the NBA and things are absolutely trending in the right direction. From a personal perspective, Jokic has established himself as arguably the best big man in the league and will be a dominant force for many years to come, in both reality and fantasy.
