Denver's Jeff Green, Bones Hyland and Zeke Nnaji have entered Covid protocols, sources tell ESPN. More Nuggets to be tested today. Denver may have trouble reaching the required eight active players to meet Golden State tonight, sources said.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) December 30, 2021
With more COVID tests to follow, Denver could struggle to meet the requirement of eight available players for tonight’s game against the Warriors. At the moment, the game remains on the NBA schedule, and the Nuggets are as high as a 5.5-point home underdog.
As for the total, it’s currently as high as 214.5, with sharp bettors taking a position on the under.
Denver’s dealt with multiple injuries this season, but it remains one game above .500 with a 17-16 record. And with plenty of parity in the middle of the Western Conference standings, the Nuggets are still holding on to the fifth playoff spot.
