In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat reporter Mike Singer and deputy sports editor Matt Schubert discuss the state of the injury-riddled Nuggets. Among the topics:
- Michael Porter Jr., is reportedly dealing with a nerve issue in his back that could jeopardize the rest of his season. What are the long- and short-term implications for the Nuggets? If MPJ is out for the season, what will that mean for the team’s title contention hopes? And how will it impact the team’s decision on when to bring back Jamal Murray?
- When will Nikola Jokic return from his wrist injury? When he does come back, will he be able to keep Denver afloat as it deals with a roster pockmarked by injuries? Does Nuggets executive Tim Connelly need to find another big man to bolster the front court rotation?
- The Nuggets are facing a brutal seven-game road trip to begin December, including a highly anticipated visit to Miami. What can we expect to learn about the team over the next three weeks?
Note: This podcast was recorded before P.J. Dozier suffered an injury during Tuesday night’s game in Portland.
