In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat writer Mike Singer and deputy sports editor Matt Schubert reconvene with the Nuggets reeling following back-to-back losses. Among the topics discussed:
- The Nuggets are approaching an inflection point with Jamal Murray with 10 games remaining in the regular season. At what point does it no longer make sense to bring their star point guard back? Has the team already reached that point? Is the risk worth the potential reward?
- Along those same lines, what should the Nuggets do with Michael Porter Jr., who had his third back surgery just four months ago? Should the team be even more cautious with Porter, given that he’s dealing with a recurring injury and his max contract hasn’t even kicked in yet?
- Bones Hyland has exceeded all expectations in his rookie season, culminating with a superlative performance in a virtual homecoming game at Philadelphia. How much are teams regretting passing on Hyland? What is his ceiling three to four years down the road?
- Where will the Nuggets land in the Western Conference playoff chase? What teams do they want to avoid? What matchups would they welcome?
