I’m curious to know if MPJ will try to come back this season. Denver cannot claim a Disabled Player Exception if he comes back, if I’m remembering correctly, so MPJ would need to be designated out for the year (as would Dozier) before Denver can add a roster spot to help now. – 4:31 PM

Nuggets sent 2-way player Petr Cornelie to Grand Rapids today. The Gold host the Wisconsin Herd for a two-game back-to-back set Friday and Saturday, and it’s a good opportunity for Cornelie to play real minutes over the weekend. Denver’s currently banged up, but in the backcourt. – 2:52 PM

Denver’s Jokic/Gordon/Jeff Green trio remains intact tonight in Orlando.
Pure dominance: Nuggets have a 128.5 ORtg, 104 DRtg, 24.5 NetRtg with that 3-man lineup this season. It’s Denver’s best 3-man NetRtg (minimum 150 min) and the 5th best NetRtg of any 3-man lineup in the NBA. pic.twitter.com/FmTtXjJqrl1:02 PM
