Denver Nuggets small forward Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) said he will play Friday versus the Indiana Pacers. What It Means: Gallinari has spent the past four games on the bench. His return will create a quagmire in the Nuggets' frontcourt between Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee, Will Barton and Juan Hernangomez. Owners can feel free to get Gallo in their starting lineups. numberFire's models project Gallinari to turn in 18.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.6 3-pointers in 33.8 minutes on Friday night.

Denver Nuggets small forward Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday against the Indiana Pacers. What It Means: Gallinari has been unavailable for the past four contests, but he was close to playing on Wednesday and appears to be nearing a return. His return will eat into the minutes of Wilson Chandler and Will Barton, while Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee are also likely to see less time at the four. Gallinari's 4.9 nERD is tied for 39th in the NBA this season and ranks behind only Nikola Jokic (9.2 nERD) on the Nuggets roster....

Kiszla: Why the Nuggets should dump Wilson Chandler and chase Gordon Hayward as a free agent

The NBA playoff dream was cool while it lasted. But reality bites, and it sounds like Jusuf Nurkic talking smack: Have a nice summer. The playoffs ain’t happening for the Nuggets this year.

Highlights: Nikola Jokic scores 30 points and throws another crazy no-look pass

Video Highlights of Nikola Jokic A few games back, Nikola Jokic threw that no-look, over the head pass to Will Barton that I thought was the best pass I’d ever seen. Tonight, Jokic pulled that same trick out of his hat, not once, but two times! First, he hit Danilo Gallinari in stride with it but Gallo was fouled and couldn’t complete the play. Unsatisfied, Joker did it again! This time to Wilson Chandler who scored the easy reverse. Joker really does have a bag of tricks. It feels like every game he seems to experiemtn with a new move, a new pass, or some kind of weird play and when it...

Recap: Once again Nuggets sputter their way to a win over the Pacers

What’s that you say about Denver, Paul George? The Nuggets were finally healthy and active tonight after a bout of health issues over the last few weeks. Their starting lineup showed up fresh and rested ready to get down to business and although it was bumpy, there were plenty of trick shots, and behind the back, no-look passes for a great must-win. Starting lineups: Nuggets: Jameer Nelson, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Nikola Jokic Pacers: C.J. Miles, Jeff Teague, Paul George, Thaddeus Young, Myles Turner The Nuggets started off well offensively, but showed some...

Danilo Gallinari starting for Nuggets, Mason Plumlee to bench

Denver Nuggets small forward Danilo Gallinari (knee) will start and forward/center Mason Plumlee will move to the bench for Friday against the Indiana Pacers. What It Means: Wilson Chandler will join Gallinari as Denver's other starting forward. There shouldn't be any minutes limit for Gallinari, who is returning from a four-game absence, but he'll cut into the playing times of Plumlee and Kenneth Faried (shoulder). numberFire's models project Gallinari to turn in 18.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.6 3-pointers in 33.8 minutes on Friday...

Recap: Nuggets dominate Cleveland Cavaliers 126-113

The Nuggets needed a huge performance against LeBron James, and the entire team delivered in a major way. The Denver Nuggets played what might be their best all-around game of the year, ousting the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers 126-113. Gary Harris led all Nuggets scorers with 21 points, followed closely by Will Barton with 20 off the bench. Nikola Jokic added another near triple-double (16-10-7) in just 29 minutes, and while Kyrie Irving put up 33 points, it wasn’t enough for a Cavs team that fell behind early. Wilson Chandler and Darrell Arthur turned out to be ready to play...

Juan Hernangomez takes a seat for Nuggets Wednesday

Denver Nuggets forward Juan Hernangomez will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. What It Means: Wilson Chandler (groin) will be getting the start at the three-spot tonight to matchup with Cavs small forward LeBron James, and with Darrell Arthur (knee) also set to return to action, Hernangomez' minutes could take a hit. He's not the best option tonight with a tough matchup and a return to the second unit. Our models project Hernangomez for 8.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.0 assists on 24.3 minutes.

Wilson Chandler (groin) returning for Nuggets' matchup with Cleveland

Denver Nuggets guard/forward Wilson Chandler (groin) will play against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday. What It Means: This will be Chandler's first game since March 11, so he might see limited minutes as his groins have been a problem all season. He's a better season-long play than DFS option. Chandler is projected to record 16.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.3 3-pointers in 31.2 minutes on Wednesday night. Source: Rotoworld.com

Wilson Chandler (groin) expects to return for Denver Wednesday

Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler (groin) took part in shootaround on Wednesday morning and expects to suit up against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. What It Means: Danilo Gallinari has been ruled out once again tonight, but Chandler's return will give the Nuggets some more depth on the wing, likely cutting into Will Barton and Juancho Hernangomez' minutes. Assuming he does play, our models project Chandler for 16.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 2.3 3-pointers in 31.2 minutes of action on Wednesday. Source: Rotoworld.com

Podcast: Nuggets last minute issues and a call to arms

The Denver Nuggets have gone through a rough stretch of two games against the Houston Rockets. The team barely lost each, two of their best players (Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler) have been out of commission, and the Portland Trail Blazers are a mere half game behind the Nuggets for the eighth spot. Things are looking gloomy right? In today’s CSG Podcast, Nate Timmons and myself go over the Nuggets issues ... in particular their issues with closing games in the last minute, Nikola Jokic’s defensive issues, and Jameer Nelson’s hero ball. Also, I talk about how people should be...
