That NBA Lottery Pick:
Since Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee is out for the rest of the regular season, we here at That NBA Lottery Pick are kinda sad that we aren’t going to see any zany JaVale on-court antics.
However, JaVale’s Instagram page has been busy and only a hour or so ago, he decided to post a photo of his stitches being removed from his left leg:
Get back soon, JaVale!

The education of Timofey Mozgov started with confidence.
Mozgov needed the confidence and trust that when Nuggets coach Brian Shaw told him he would play this season, he meant it. Teammates needed the confidence that Mozgov would handle passes thrown to him. They're still working on that.
But Mozgov has been arguably the most improved player on the team, and Shaw has rewarded...
Ty Lawson hasn't played in eight games and isn't returning to action Saturday night at Portland. When he's able to return from a fractured rib remains a question mark. But one thing's for certain, the Nuggets don't plan to shut him down.
"No, I don't think so," coach Brian Shaw said Friday. "I think that you still want him to get back and play...
Denver Nuggets small forward Wilson Chandler will not suit up tonight against the Brooklyn Nets. It is unclear as to how Chandler sustained the injury, but he has been declared out with a sprained right knee according to Aaron J. Lopez on Twitter.It's most likely that he suffered the injury on Tuesday night against the Trail Blazers. Chandler only played 26 minutes, going 3...
Sitting courtside at a basketball game is pretty cool. The only problem is when the action gets a little too up close and personal--like it does here when Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried accidentally kicks a ball that nails a woman in the face.The play was pretty much a fast break gone wrong: Loading...
The Denver Nuggets could really use their point guard back. In addition to the slew of season-ending injuries that a few of the players on the team has suffered, Ty Lawson has already missed the past seven games with a broken rib. In that span, the team has won just one game, and that was against the Milwaukee Bucks.Quickly losing ground in the playoff hunt, the Denver Nuggets are...
George Karl and Daryl Morey agreed that you cannot play a slow pace in today's NBA in a panel at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. Defenses are just too good, they said, with Morey citing Tom Thibodeau's ability to smother teams deep in the shot clock. The data show clearly that early scores are vital.
Morey discussed the different use of Dwight Howard by the Houston...
When the NBA’s schedule makers began mapping out the national television slate last summer, they probably didn’t envision a scenario in which the Brooklyn Nets and Denver Nuggets would be two fringe (or non) playoff teams experiencing precipitous drop-offs from the previous season. Yet, because the schedule is pretty much set in stone (unless you’re the Lakers, apparently)...
A big reason as to why the Nuggets have underperformed so much this season is that Danilo Gallinari has yet to appear in a game due to debilitating knee injury

Last night in Portland, the Nets got thoroughly embarrassed, and lost by 44, their largest margin...
The Nets came up with the perfect response to their pathetic showing in Portland: they made the Nuggets look even worse.
Brooklyn dominated Denver right from the opening tip, outscoring the Nuggets 29-8 in the first quarter and cruising to a 112-89 victory inside the Pepsi Center Thursday night.
“They pretty much did what we did last night,” Deron Williams said. “So there...
Jason Kidd was in his last full season with the Nets the last time they won in Denver.
He won't have much time to get his club ready after it matched the franchise's fourth-worst loss.
Times are also tough for fellow first-year coach Brian Shaw's Nuggets, who have lost eight of nine entering Thursday night's matchup.
Brooklyn (26-29) fell 124-80 at Portland on...
